Leather Batman Costume Project


I had started working on the Ultimates Wizard rendition of Batman but put it aside to concentrate on the rubber suits.

Now that most of my time has freed up and I'm no longer behind or backlogged I'm back to work on the leather goods as well.

In the case of Batman......

I've taken some of Ultimates suit...Some of the X2 xmen suits and some of the Begins costume and mixed them all up to get a new cool costume concept.

It's all leather and like the X Men suits different types of leahter including suede, lambskin and cow hide.

Big Bat chest emblem...forearm gantlets already incorporated into the sleeves and the same muscle suit that I made for Wolverine's X2 jacket has been inserted into this Batman Jacket. There will also be an area to literally attach the forearm spikes to the jacket.

Zipper down the front....and a very special collar to accomodate different types of cowls but I am also making the new Batman cartoon cowl from leather as well so this should all work together quite nicely.

It's the most ambitios leather project I've ever worked on so I cant wait to see the prototype pics. Kind of makes the X2 Wolverine jacket look like childs play...:)

Updates on the way.

David

Seeing as this board has ton of new members I suppose not everyone is familiar with some of the leather projects I've worked on...

Here's a look at a few superhero related leather items I've done in the last 2 years..

The Jacket is a pretty accurate replica from what I've been told. I have the pants and gloves in the works to complete this entire look but still, black leather pants seemed to go over well with this jacket just the same.

This was my first DD movie costume. An upgraded version is nearly ready but for now all I have to show are the first suits I did.

Image

Also the cowl will have this general idea in it's construction...which I think is pretty cool converted to Batman. (prototype DD cowl)
Image

And this is the Anakin EpIII glove I made and where the idea came from to have something similar incorporated into a fully functional leather jacket...
Image

This is a fun project for me and finally a custom idea that is not bound by the restrictions of the movie suits.

I've only shown these new Batman leather designs to one other person and was very pleased with his response to them.
I may just go ahead and post the designs here also for all to see and critique..........let me scan them in so that they can be uploaded.
I'd love to here what the bat community thinks of this sort of thing. :)

Batman in a leather suit??? Could it work?? I have no idea but I like the sound of it and seeing as I wear my X2 jacket quite a bit I kind of dig the idea of beginning to wear a Batman leather jacket too.
Yes...I'm a real costuming geek.emoticon

I have always wondered if a batsuit can be made out of leather. I think that it would work if it were formed right. You could make the entire thing along with a leather cape-jacket and have one heck of a nice suit.

I would work on one but I lack the money, time, talent, ..... :grumble

Good God... emoticon

He sculpts and molds the rubber products...

And can work leather. emoticon

David, do you do the sewing of the seams as well or do you have someone else do that?
