Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


Yes, I think they would be categorized as "made for production" but not "screen used."

Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


I just removed most of the material from the main nostril area of the nose on my Returns cowl, leaving about 1/4-1/3" to hold on to the sides of the nose. Nose holes didn't cut it for me. My problem was the edge of the cowl chafing the very bottom of my nose at the separation between the nostrils. It got irritated everytime I wore the cowl.

Not screen accurate I know, but I had no choice. It also frees up the nose portion of the cowl to ride up my nose(thus making the bottom of my nose stick out from under the cowl's nose), but I can deal with that. :p

Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


On the 89 UK Doc there is a pan across a dozen Cowls in storage and one of them is indeed missing his emblem oval area.

I always wondered what the story was for that lonely little cowl. :frown

*Probably* nothing more than they didn't get around to adding it yet,or it never got used in production,so they never bothered.
These were glued on after the cowl was made,using latex coated canvas.

Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


Reeves and PJ pointed out an auction for an excellent authentic '89 in this thread:

Real Deal 89 on eBay

The pics are down now, but the piece has a reliable pedigree, no nose holes and no emblem mount. In the auction description it is stated to be a non-screen used production piece.

Maybe it the lonely little cowl you pointed out, Nick.

Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


The real Returns cowl that I saw had nose holes exactly like the 89 cowl pictured in the first post of this thread. It's funny I've been trying to decide if I want to make some nose holes in my Returns cowl. I'm going to have to if I want to wear the cowl for more than 30 second at a time.

Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


This is the only pic I have that shows the nose. It is directly from the guy who sold it. Don't bug him for pics-- he sold it. he was nice enough to give me this shot. Leave him alone.

Re: Bat Cowl Nose Holes


I usually always cut away that little snot shelf. If you wear it for awhile, it will build up condensation causing you to have nose dripage.
Not fun when the kids say Batman's got a runny nose. :lol
