Reznor9 Arkham Origins V3 Build


This thread will document my third and final version of the origins batsuit.
In 2014 I made my first cosplay, basic but cool for its time... made entirely out of foam and only utilizing basic tools and techniques. Was an awesome experience but I was convinced I could do better.
In 2015 I decided to make my V2. Now having discovered beveled cuts, and taking a very basic understanding of pepakura, I was able to incorporate that into my foam templates as I sought out to make an even more accurate version of the suit. I also utilized terraflex thermoplastic to add some density to the foam and upholstery vinyl to give the armor some depth and texture. I was pretty satisfied with this version of the suit and thought maybe to retire the build.
Now in 2016, Im finding myself playing with new tools and techniques such as 3D printing and mold making/casting... The origins batsuit still being my favorite, Ive decided to give it one more go... my goal is to completely exclude the use of foam in this build and mold the entire suit out of resin and urethane using a mixture of sculpted and 3D modeled pieces... Its not an original idea, but its something Ive wanted to learn to do since the beginning.
Im hoping to have the project completed by October but I have much to learn and anticipate several snags along the way as I am by no means a professional in any of the fields required to make a professional looking suit. Thanks for all the support shown during my first 2 builds and hope that this one maintains some level of interest.

Below is a side by side comparison to my V1 and V2 armor to illustrate the difference a year makes. Hopefully I can make such a leap in detail for my V3.

Re: Reznor9 Arkham Origins V3 Build


Work has now begun on these bad boys. They have been 3D modeled based off screenshots of the game and the Arkham Origins NECA figurine. Obviously sized down to normal human proportions. I've printed these out and will shortly begin the tiresome journey of smoothing and finishing the surface for molding. They will be cast in black tinted urethane.
Side note: I purchased some of that XTC-3D from smooth-on... not sure if it really helps eliminate 90% of post finishing work to ABS prints like they claim but I thought Id give it a try. Anyone else try that stuff?

Printed up two versions of this. One being more rounded then the other. I opted for the more rounded V2 because the other made my for arm appear too skinny. Wanted to add a little bulk to the design.

Here is a video to show the fit.

Next were the boot covers which took forever to print. These were also modeled off the Neca batman figurine. Since it's a 1/4 scale model I actually used measurements from the toy and just scaled them up. Worked out great cause they fit pretty good.

Test fit and I'm happy with results. Need to get to sanding these seams down

The belt was originally going to be referenced off the same Neca figure. But while playing Arkham knight I got to looking at the Arkham Origins skin pack and noticed the model for the belt received a small redesign. So I opted to emulate that.

Got the belt finished last night. Printing the buckle up now. In the end the whole thing should be cast as a one piece urethane belt. At least that's the plan.
