Opinions on Costumes


   I need your opinion on what the best Costume out there is. I hate those rental things and thats what i bought. I want something I can actually move in feel like its a part of me. Last year I rented one and It was a real hit but Girls kept lifting my cape to see how acurate my suit was and i was embarassed by all those stupid strings tied here and there. How about someone who has glued a suit together...are you happy with it? Any suggestions? The Darkknight :signal

Re: Opinions on Costumes


You definitly want to glue your armor down,unless you got something like what DavidYR1 makes,which has straps,but much higher quality than than the licensed pieces. Not all of his stuff,though.
There's no 'best' one. It's up to you. There's enough parts out there to make any movie style,comic,or hybrid type Batsuit you want.

What you want is somethng like this...Image
Or this....

Although many have done some amazing custom work to the licensed pieces,they're generally crap.

Hang around the board and get to know some of the members and get a feel for how things work and you'll be on your way to a great Batsuit.

Re: Opinions on Costumes


hi! it's hard to say what the "best" costume out there is. it depends on what sort of costume you're looking to have (one of the comic looks, cartoon style, one of the movie suits, a hybrid of the different pieces you like the best, etc.) personally the costume i think is the "best" is my own (naturally :p ), but i doubt it would be the "best" for you since it's a batgirl suit. :lol

i would recommend going through the costume vault forum and looking at the different styles that people have put together. i know some of the brothers have websites that showcase different suits, maybe you can start a thread asking for people to post their links to that kind of thing. after you decide what sort of look you're going for, break the costume down into pieces and start acquiring or making your own until you can assemble the whole thing together. most people take quite awhile to build their suits, usually a year or more. good luck figuring out what you want! :)

Re: Opinions on Costumes


And the best advise i can give is when you make up your mind what style to go for, stick with it, because it can be costly changing your mind halfway through a build..
i know i did it several times, now am broke and homeless :lol


Good luck bro :up

Re: Opinions on Costumes



   In my opinion: I think the best costume is the "Dead End" or Alex Ross costume. I'm trying to make one now with a muscle suit under.

    After that, totally panther suit.
