 Batman Dawn Of Justice "Build" UPDATE 7/6/17- Jumpsuit and cape in. Suited up!


A recent life event has left with me more time to myself, and I figured with the additional time and resources, I'd finally add what will amount to my 4th batsuit attempt.

I put build in quotations because I won't be doing much work of my own. I'm starting with the body suit. A print file I found thru rpf via Google. Sent it to zentai-zentai.com and should get it back in a few weeks. A sad realization that my torso is essentially the same width top to bottom. But should end up fitting well.

I plan on sending our old friend Reevz a pm to get his DOJ cowl. Always been a fan of his work. And my past three cowls have been produced by him. So I figure why ruin a good thing.

Belt and gauntlets will prob come from etsy. Gonna try to do the emblem myself and modify some police boots I already own.

For the muscle suit, I'm going to try and tackle it the way bigbat23 did in his epic build thread, using upholstery foam and gluing it down to a compression suit under the actual batsuit. It'll be the one big contribution that'll be solely my work on the suit.

So...here we go.

Good luck on the build. And don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions when building the muscle suit. :up

Hey, I recently got a DOJ file too. Let me know how they did with your suit. I'm thinking about using them.

Will definitely be hitting you up if I have any questions. Your thread is going to be a huge resource for me going forward.

I'll give my thoughts as soon as it arrives. Was told that it may be a month or so.

In other news, also ordered the Reevz cowl. Can't wait to try it on. Been a few years since I've worn a cowl.

So Reevz advised in a very official message turnaround time on a cowl is up to 12 weeks. Sheesh. Not really a complaint. Just a take on how in demand costuming has become since I found this place.

So the print came in and turned out really well. Except it didn't fit. The way the zipper is set up is weird. It goes across the back instead of down. I had the suit made too short and my back is too wide to get it close.

The hands, feet and good are also very inconvenient. I emailed the site to see what my options are but I have a feeling I'm gonna have to end up getting a new one made.

Shame too because I really like the print itself. Ugh.

It's custom size. However, the sheet they give you to fill out your measurements didn't include shoulder width. I'm blessed with a decently wide back.

They responded and asked for photos, which I will send tonight. I might just say to hell with it and pony up for a new one with a long zipper and no hood/hands/feet.

So I'm gonna be getting a new print done. Decided I'd rather shell out for another then go thru the return process.

It's semi likely I'll get this done by Halloween. Not to mention, still awaiting the cowl.

Wal-Mart has finally released long sleeve compression gear in heather gray. Might go that route as a prototype to work on gluing the emblem and to toy around with a muscle suit.

More to come...
