Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


Another update time...

Snapped a few pics on the iPhone this morning so thought I'd post them on here and let people know, I haven't given up on things lol, just that other things kind of get in the way sometimes so Bats has to go on the back burner ... at least I'm not under any time constraints, so I can pick things up when ever I can ....

The cowl is now completely attached to the cape, so it's an "All-in-one" cape n' cowl and a zip is now in place ... so i basically throw it around my shoulders, zip it up half way, then pull the cowl over my head, then pull the zip all the way up!

The cowl can be removed when needed and as you see sometimes in the comics, it drapes behind me on the back of my shoulders ... this weekend i'll tale some shots of this and post them on here.

The problem of the weight of the cape pulling the front upwards when its draped over my shoulders has been solved, by inserting a metal frame in the collar that runs from one side of the cape from the point at where the cape joins just above the chest logo, all the way up, around my back and down the other front side of the cape, meeting the other point, again above the chest logo. The piece of metal is temporary for now as I need to find a longer piece, that will eventually follow the complete 'V' line of the shoulders, back and front and will be sewn in to a hidden pocket.

The basics of the design is the cap n' cowl an 'all-in-one' design unzips and separates at the chest logo and is then lifted off me, with the 'V' collar staying rigid, it sounds strange and kind'a difficult to explain, i'll get some pics up on here soon to show, if people would like to see!

The cowl still needs a bit of 'Fine' finishing, but it's virtually there!

I'm almost ready to move on to replacing the body suit, which I have a few different ideas, have thought about 'sub-dye' but I can't find anyone over here in the UK :0( Not to mention finding anyone like "Eastbay" is just ridiculous! My main train of thought at the moment is to make up a custom pattern and sew my own ...

Oh, and the Yellow 'oval' chest logo is changing to the larger 'black bat'

Anyway's think I've gone on a bit too much for now, so let me know what you think guys :0)


Cheers BATfans!

Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


Muscle Under Suit

I've been pretty quiet posting on here lately, but that's not to say I haven't been working on my creation .... in fact, I've actually been doing quite a bit!

Unfortunately I've been very lazy and not posted up any details of what I've been doing (plus I've been busy on other things, you know boring stuff like WORK!)... I've taken pics, but again not nearly as much as I should have!

The cowl is shaping up pretty well, but I've now started to work on other areas of the build as well!

Anyways ... I decided that I need something to bulk my frame up and show a bit of muscle, but without going to the gym lol ... so my answer was a Muscle Suit!

Have you seen the cost of a good one ... a small fortune!!!

So I decided to have a go and make one!

Here's a couple of pics of what I'm up to …. for more info and pics pop over to ][sign in to see URL] and see all the details so far :0)

PS: There's loads more to come, I just need to get around to posting it up!
