Re: Classic comic batman Belt (costume to follow)


Those gloves really are fantastic. Can you give more information? And where did you get the buckle on that belt?

Re: Classic comic batman Belt (costume to follow)


The gloves are made of goat lamb skin which is very thin and stretches slightly which helps give that skin tight look of the comic books. The seller took measurements of my palm and forearm to get a perfect fit. I highly recommend them.
The buckle also came from eBay, biglousnovelties but I now think it's too small, it's only 4 by 2.5 inches. I plan to get a wider belt and chunkier buckle.

I'd like to say a big thank you to Iconic collectables.

The cowl covers up the chest emblem unfortunatly so I'll need to change theat, not sure if I should go with an oval bat symbol with yellow logo to better fit the cowl or simply lower my current bat symbol so that it's visible

I'd say go for lowering your symbol.
Other than that though, looks great!
Are you planning on a huge billowing cape too?

Funny you should ask arctic warfare, the wife and I are planning a a trip to a fabric shop together even as I write this. I've shown her some of Alex Ross's art work for inspiration. Not sure if we'll do a 6 or 8 panel yet.
