Okay I started on my new utility belt. First off, a BIG THANKS, to Gothams Batman for his awesome find. Without it this build would still be in limbo.

First I got these Q-tip cases that GB found at Target.

Then painted with Krylon fuision paint for plastics.
Then I bought these sticker things and painted them.
 Image
Then I bought 5 sets of these markers at the 99 cent store. I found the yellow one took the paint better.

 This is what they look like all painted up. Still need to mount them to a belt, and figure out my buckle situation.

So what do you guys think so far?






Not a problem at all, bro! Sorry to pop in so late, as I have little time on the Costume Vault. I just want to say I REALLY like what you did with my idea. It actually looks better as comic style belt IMO. Thanks for thanking me btw, lol. Glad I could help! On a side note. Where did you get your waist trimmer? My compression undershirts work, but Im looking for something more. I REALLY like how that works.

Thanks guys, you too selina. @ GothamsBatman. If you are refering to my muscle vest, I made it myself. Alot of time and thought went in to putting that together. Happy with the results. Most of all, its comfy.

Excellent work! I really like what you are doing. Can you give me more details about how you made that buckle?

I know you did, bro! I can see that and it looks outstanding! Once I get the funds, I'll definitely be tackling something like this. When I said waist trimmer I was referring to the unitard type thing you wore under the vest to make it more pronounced.

Re: Bigbat23's Suit Upgrades WIP (Utility Belt)


@Gothamsbatman: Under the vest Im just wearing a black compression top by Starter (wal-mart), bottoms are Eastbay. Dont tell anybody but I am actually wearing a waist trimmer too. Just for good measure.


@Ibnzbass4: For the buckle I first made a template of the buckle on graph paper. Then traced it on a sheet of .030" styrene. The first/bottom layer was just a rectangle. Put it aside. Then trace and cut the outline of the buckle. Then I used superglue gel to glue it down to more styrene. Cut out and repeat til you get the thickness you want. Then ALOTof SANDING!!! I hate sanding. Gave me high school wood shop flashbacks.lol. After I was satified I glued it down to the rectangle piece. Now I had a flat buckle. I wanted a curve so I used my daughters blow dryer and heated up the backside of the buckle a bit. Then I took an elastic ankle wrap bandange to bend it around a paint can. Then I heated it up more while wrapped to the can. Let stay on for 3 to 4 hours. And your good. Hope that helps.

Haha, you're secrets safe with me :wink Not to :hijack, but I thought I would let you know that I have a few more tutorials coming. Arkham spats and functional gauntlets! Just stay tuned, bro!

Now back to BigBat23's scheduled thread.

Forgive the simple question, but where did you pick the stuff up at?
