Awesome :toocool I love seeing your updates dude, this is coming on really well. And I like the fact you're within driving distance so I can come steal it when it's done, failing that I'm sitting on your door step till you agree to make me one :p

Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


Hello to everyone following my progress with my 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls .....

Well, I spent most of the Bank Holiday on this project and I think I'm getting very close to where I want to be, although I have decided that this will now be named the "prototype" as I've realized that this material is behaving completely different to the "dummy" i produced.

Not allowing for the 'Stretch" in the material, the pieces I've been cutting, have come out too large and as such I've had to unpick a lot of the panels and "take them in"!

So, as I've already found a material of the same "stretch" but with a leather look, this will defo be the prototype for the "leather" look cape and cowl.

Right, here's some updated pics ....

Unfortunately you may be able to see from these close up shots, the lines that have been left from "unpicking" the stitching :0(

ImageImage

These last two pics have bits of paper stuck on to see how it looks with eyes, don't worry the eyes will hopefully not look as bad as they do, lol

ImageImage

The plan this weekend is to be cutting the 'eye' holes, of which the hardened material face plate already has the 'eyes' cut and I plan to 'stiffen' the neck pieces and attach the 'collar' that will eventually be 'inserted/joined' to the cape, creating a 'V' at the front and back.

Wish me luck :0)

Cheers

Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


Wow. You really put my cowl to shame. I want to start back at the begining now. You should make a detailed guide to how you made your cowl. I'm having trouble finding a cowl sewing pattern, and have had mostly bad ideas as far as putting one together that doesn't look puffy and loose at the top. How you managed it looking tight and smooth in the right way is beyond me. Keep it up man, gotta say your cowl is what Ihave always wanted in a cowl. Amazing work.
