Bigbat23's "Foam" Arkham Origins inspired W.I.P.


Well I have been REALLY impressed with all the foam work going on around here, and since I was looking for another project to start, I figured I do an Arkham Origins "inspired" suit. I was not a big fan of this suit at first but I've been playing the game a lot lately so the suit has grown on me. Plus doing it in foam should keep the cost down.

First off I started by downloading the PDF files for the gauntlets from The Foamcave. (I got the shin guard templates too) Picked up some EVA foam also. 2mm, 3mm and 5mm.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Picked up one of these also. You will need it for "heat forming".

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Got all my templates cut out.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
I had to make one of my own templates for the inner gauntlets.

The inner gauntlet with the lines just drawn on. I then just scared the lines very carefully.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Then "heat sealed" & "heat formed. The heat opened up the scared lines.

Early stages. So far so good. Update coming soon.

Wait... How come I'm not on page 71 of this thread ?!? Kidding aside, very strong start. This and some other recent foam ventures on the board have my interest peaked to try something similar. Well done Sir.

I built my gauntlet a bit different than how they are put together on The Foamcave. Not taking anything away from his work, he does some amazing things with foam. I believe he is a member here. More to come.

Moving right along.

I cut part of the sleeves off a old compression top I had and glued the inner gauntlet to it so I can just slide it on and off.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
I added the straps, still need Velcro though. This is with the inner gauntlet in place.

Need more glue to add the fins.

Thanks fellas!

I got the fins put together, beveled and glued to the gauntlet. Tomorrow I can get Velcro to do the straps.

Here you can see the beveled edges of the fins.

Next up, after some HOURS and some cursing at my brothers dinosaur of a computer I finally got the templates printed out for the Origins cowl.
