I added heavy duty velcro to the center of my belt where the buckle will be and to the back also to fasen it. I then painted my it yellow using leather paint.

Next I printed out a buckle to scale to use as a template and cut it out of a sheet of plastic

I attached six of the metal capsules to the belt using pop rivets.

I then sanded the buckle I cut out, sprayed it gold to match the capsules and attached it using velcro.

Next I thought about how to tackle a neck piece for my cowl. I had the idea to use two balaclavas joined together to lengthen the neck and painting it with latex and plasti dip.

The chin parts do lineup together when I'm wearing it. :)

Re: 80s Comic Version Batman


OK so I latexed and painted the briefs I made to colour match them and tried everything I have done so far on to see how its looking.

The neck piece is too long and needs trimming to stop it from bunching up, but I plan to trim the neck after I have done the cape to make sure I dont trim it too short. Im also thinking of attaching the cape to the neck piece but I will have to see about that when the cape is done.

After taking the previous photo I decided the cowl was looking to dark compared to the neck piece so I gave the cowl a few more coats of plastidip to lighten it.

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

Think its looking a better match now.

So that everything up to date, sorry about the large number of updates so quickly but I have been busy since christmas. The up dates will be a little slower from now on. :wink

This weekend I plan to have ago at making a blue latex cape.

Very inspiring and motivating posts, thank you for sharing the making of your suit! The cowl looks great now, what kind of latex you used to cover the balaclava and the briefs?
