Re: LOOKING For Anyone intersted in making a kevlar batman dead end cowl with no mouth opening


I agree DT, I don't mean for peopel to go out and try getting shot in the head. :happy But, most "bulletproof" helmets made for the army etc..use epoxy kevlar (plus other bullet proof technology) from preventing soldiers from dying...which doesn't mean they wouldn't have a concusion.

The only reason why I do it is so I can say, see that costume there in the corner? That one is actually functional. But obviously, there are no guarantees, like with real bullet proof items either.

Zane might be able to put up the disclaimer here if he gets a chance.

I dont think you need to get shot in the head wearing a kevlar helmet ( Army) just wearing the heavy thing on your melon can cause a concusion and severe neck pain.

Re: LOOKING For Anyone intersted in making a kevlar batman dead end cowl with no mouth opening


Thanks for all the replies guys. Hey that rymed, anyway I like the way Jants does it because I am wanting a costume that is one of a kind, and what I feel that if there was a real batman/bruce wayne out there. What he would strap on to go out and risk his life. Im a huge batman fan. He is just the best character ever and I just want to own what I would think he would. It might seem goofy but it would be rare and special. Im thinking of a couple thing's to do with the cowl for breathing perposes. Im wanting to make a batman beyond costume. Thats why I want the closed mouth. My fav. cowl is by far the DE cowl. I figure it would look pretty wicked to combine the two. If I could get someone to make the cowl and Jants would add the armor That would work great! This site is difacult Im haven trouble putting pics on here and on my posts. Thanks again everyone

Re: LOOKING For Anyone intersted in making a kevlar batman dead end cowl with no mouth opening


Oh duh I forgot to say a few other thing's. DAVIDYR1 I'll put a few pic's in the e-mail im sending you. If it's cool with you and Jants I would like to have you make me the cowl if you could and just have Jants add the kevlar. What im thinking about doing for the mouth is taking a fire and acid resistant mask that Apocalypton used and puting some of that for the mouth If you have seen pics of batman beyond there's a way I think this might work well. It's hard to tell you guys with out any pics. But if anyone has any other idea's shoot em at me please. I don't have a ton of money so I figure if I put this costume together piece by piece it will turn out the way I want it. I also want to get some gloves made with kevlar maybe metal fin's and gauntlet's I think that would work out good. If anyone can help me out with that I'd be gratefull. I like the onstar fins. Thanks again guys. :batfly

I just thought about it, I might be interested in taking on a new cowl. And since it would be sculpted on my lifecast (24" plus) it would be large enough to put some Kevlar panels into.
Shoot me an e-mail.
Oh yeah, and it wouldn't cost you a bundle.:wink

DarkKnightDetective: Trading with both DAVIDYR1 and Jants has been gratifying for yours truly, and Jants told me tonight that he'd be happy to coordinate with you and DAVIDYR1 on lining Dave's cowl with epoxy-Kevlar armor elements. The arm guards shown in my Avatar pic are also of e-K and are very strong. I lined only certain large muscle elements in Dave's chest with e-K, but not the whole inside and wouldn't recommend it. The same goes for the cowl. Batman has never been invulnerable, only somewhat protected in key spots; so the cowl elements are strategically sized, contoured and placed. At any rate, DKD, it appears you have a wealth of artistic talent to tap from three highly skilled Bros -- including BIG BRIN. Here's wishing you and these aces well in going for it.
