I had to sand a curve into the base of the fins so that they sat on the armoured wrist guard i had made out of modelling plastic.

I heated up a piece of plastic in boiling water then wrapped it inside a large metal cocktail shaker and waited for it to cool down. I did this twice for each arm and doubled up the plastic by glueing two pieces together, this should make the guard stronger and stop the curve from straightening up.

I drilled a hole in each fin and sunk a nut into the base.

I used a hole punch in the leather glove and poked the bolts through the plastic gaurd and the lether then scewed the fins down.

I tried spraying on some muscle definition with a can of fabric spray paint but the spray wasn't very consistant so it was hard to get a realistic effect. I think next time I'll use an air brush but I'll practice on t shirts instead of going straight onto the suit like I did with this attempt, doh!

This is a pic from Halloween before I tried spraying muscles on. The suit is wet as it had been raining.

I wasn't happy with the colour of my suit, it was too light a shade of grey for batman really and in some light it looked almost white. So I bought this off fleebay. The zip broke straight away so I had to take it to a seamstress to have a new zip fitted. I'm not happy with the bat symbol, it's a bit to chunky and it's not centrel on my chest so I will update that soon.

I wasn't happy with the way the cloak fitted, it had elastic across the neck but it was forever slipping behind my shoulders.
So I removed the elastic and replaced it with some clips.

I wasn't happy with my belt, I felt the buckle was too small for the pouches--Log in or sign up to see linked image content-- and looked slightly ill fitting.
 So I bought a new belt to fit the pouches.

painted the belt withsome fabric paint.

next I'm planning to fabricate a large bat logo buckle and paint it to look like brass in order to cover the modern plastic clip buckle.

Looking good man!!!

This is the look I'm going for too, grey suit, yellow emblem and belt. I like th elook of the cowl (i have another post on here asking which looks good on comic style), and this gives me a good idea.
Of course, I'd need to lose some weight, as I'm no where near in as good as shape as you are emoticon
Keep up the good work!!!

Re: Classic comic batman Belt (costume to follow)


This photo of me and a child I had just met was taken of me at a comic convention by a stranger with my permission. But I didn't realise they were going to send it to a national magazine, not that I mind. It's quite nice to know that I've indirectly helped this little kid win a batman costume of his own.

Classic comic batman


I just did a children's fancy dress party dressed as batman, I was punched by a vampire, stabbed by the grim reaper and had my cape ripped by a red devil. Let no good deed go unpunished. But I think the kids enjoyed themselves, even the little witch who asked why I was wearing my pants on the outside.

I'm collecting supplies for the next belt upgrade, this time I'm going tactical, BRITISH TACTICAL to be precise. I'm having them make it for me.

Re: Classic comic batman Belt (costume to follow)


I've had a few comments about my junk while wearing my batsuit which is slightly inappropriate as kids are often present so I've decided to disguise my package.
I saw neonprops selling a clooney Panther cod on eBay and decided to buy one. --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

I plan to glue it to the rubber pants I wear but my question is; how do I glue this 50 shore black urethane cod to the rubber pants?
