Blue Dark Knight Returns Project - End product


I've seen some really good Frank Miller Dark Knight Black and Gray costumes, but I don't recall any Blue and Yellow ones. Putting this together for our local Con this summer.

Not sure who generated this urethane emblem, but trimmed it around the edges and mounted to yellow pleather.

The cowl is a Bat Texan Hush version 1 that I started to modify a couple years ago because it was too small for me. Glued to an aviator cap liner, it will be skinned with an outer layer of leather and painted navy blue.

May finally finishing my Hush Stealth Jumper suit when this one is done. Thanks for looking.

Re: Dark Knight Returns Yellow Oval Assembly


Saw you talk about this on instagram, can't wait to see more. I'm working on both DKR style emblems for my own suit later this year as I can't choose between them so I'm doing both :lol

That's definitely a great way to solve the dilemma. I'm keeping your cowl on my wish list. I love the way it obscures your eyes.

Hopefully I can find some time to work on this project yet this week. Thanks for the encouragement, and I look forward to your project as well.

Re: Dark Knight Returns Yellow Oval Assembly


Time is always against us! I've no doubt this will be as great as your other suits :)

I'll be updating my cowl thread with the extra pieces as I get them done. The black emblem needs sanding and moulding, then I'll get on the gauntlets and second emblem. I'm undecided on the belt style but there's plenty of time for that.

Hope you can get some time on this soon bro.

Re: Blue Dark Knight Returns Project - cowl done


This cowl project began almost 3 years ago with a Bat Texan Jim Lee version 1 that my noggin just didn't fit. Paired it with a Hunterbat Keaton Returns.

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Glued the seams and plastidipped the latex. Painted with Meltonian Navy Blue.

Feel pretty good about this hybrid. Plan to wear to our local Con this Fall and have some photos taken with my son as Robin.

Re: Blue Dark Knight Returns Project - end result


With the armor and belt pieces that I have, this is the end product

It may work best in black.

I could probably get more authentic if I pulled my compression Eastbay over my armor, but that would only make it more toasty.
