Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


It's been a LONG time coming - but here's an update!

Bet ya think I've given up with my BAT suit, well you couldn't be more wrong!

I haven't been working on it all the time but I have been working on it every now and then.

So what's new, well, the BIG news is, it's been worn for this Halloween .... Yep, it was a last minute thing, so I had to finish as much as I could for the night .....

Keep watching this space and i'll post a few pics, unfortunately as is always the case, I didn't take many pics as it was a pain to get to my phone to take the pics, but I do have a few!

Anyways here's a couple of pics of various parts I've worked on.


First off is two more pics of the Muscle Suit and for those eagled eyed BAT people, you might spot a completely new grey suit,

Yes, I've been sewing again and I have made my own grey all in one suit all pieced together and sewn by my own fair hands lol

Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


Really, no pictures .....


That's strange as I'm at work rather than home and I can see them, no probs!

Can someone else post and let me know if they also can't see the pictures!

Thanks

Re: The 'Holy Grail' of BATcowls


Long awaited update!

Just like in the comics

After a few tryouts in the field and for aesthetics I’ve decided that the zip on the cape and cowl was not exactly what I had pictured in my mind.

Not to mention the cape/cowl was becoming pretty difficult to undo and re-zip and yes, the full effect was seen last Halloween evening, pics to follow soon.

On closer inspection of the material I realised that the four way stretch could probably allow the cape with the attached cowl to be pulled over my head. So after making up a few small test pieces of just a neck opening I decided to take the plunge and take out the zip on the front of the neck and sew straight up the front, thus properly creating a cape with a fully attached cowl that I could, well … just pull over my head!

Few more custom body suit (Exo-Suit) pics


WOW, didn't realise I had left it so long to post any more pics.. so just to keep things going ...

Here are a few more pics of the muscle suit I've made!

Looks a bit strange as it's on a mannequin, maybe I'll go all out and actually put it on it to show you how it looks on me!

Love the build! I miss following builds like this back when the board was jammed with people.
