Re: My 89' suit progress (nothing you haven't seen)


Well I just had to try it on quick since I can't wait for Halloween .Let me know what you guys think.
Nothing is on correctly as I'm making a cape harness now which I'll post when I'm done.
Going to have to cut the latex cape clips casted in this cape off as it doesn't allow my body type have the cowl splines line up correctly.

Great look on you, hope all goes well with the cape. Just needs your boots and boot armour to get finished.

BTW: Heavy is it? Now you can see why Batman is so P***ed off.

And thanks for the compliments.

Can some one explain how I should go about making a cape harness please? Also details on how I line up the cape and attach the actual plates and harness correctly? I've seen the post by Hunter bat, but he doesn't go into much detail " how to make it,ect....thanks in advance.

Re: My 89' suit progress (nothing you haven't seen)


Just as I stated in my little tutorial video I sent you, you want to get someone to help you here.

Easy steps below.

1. put the armor on.

2. Put the cowl on.

3. have a friend help you slide the cape on (fitted underneath the cowl scallops of course) and have him/her adjust it until the spines match up and you are comfortable with the placement of the cape.

4. Once you're all in agreememnt with the cape placement, you'll want your helper to grab a small piece of white chalk or white colored pencil to draw some marks.

5. With the chalk, draw around the cowl's spines/scallops over the cape. Also create 2 marks where the harness will be attached, perfectly underneath the emblem. You can create a fake harness out of cardboard just to help you decide where to place these markings, according to where your emblem sits. They will have to sit perfectly on top of one another when everything is attached together.

6. Remove everything and carefully attach the real cape harness (if you obtained or created one for yourself) according to the markings you made.
(you can use the archives to find these templates. I'm sure they're still in there.
here's a pic of another brother's harness. Although, you really don't need that many holes in it. Just two in the center would suffice. Remember, you're not using foam latex, so some things will differ.

7. Don't strain yourself too much about these details. Trust me... not worth trying to get the harness to look 100% exactly the same as the one used in the film. Just make one that will hold well over your shoulders and attach underneath the emblem on your cowl. My harness is not split in two. That's unnecessary. Mine is one whole piece that keeps the cape attached at all times.

Definitely check the archives thoroughly. There's still a lot of good things in there.
It took you only a few months to get this far. It took me years and I'm still not 100% finished with mine as I'm always looking for things to fix. lol. :lol

Some photos to help...

This one is of the actual movie. Give you an idea of how the cape sits in between the emblem. *(half ways of the emblem, is where the cape splits).

Goodluck bud, so far all is looking sharp! Sorry I couldn't reply sooner to your last email. I'm very distracted with my job at the moment.
I think considering the time you've invested, you're doing really well for yourself.

In addition, here's the cape harness blue print I created for my own suit. You can print it out at 100% (make sure your printer settings are set in landscape and not in portrait mode), cut it out and use it as a stencil. It should be only slightly smaller than the 89 emblem to hide the edges.
The flaps that attaches to the cape can be modified to your liking, depending on how high or low the harness has to sit, in accordance to your own height. Hope this helps ya.
