Re: foamies gauntlet (+ beginings of a foamies suit!) *updates*


*UPDATE*

i just got the plasti-dip coat on the matching gauntlet and I started on my suit!

here's what it looks like so far-

nothing is glued together. all i've done at this point is gotten some of the pieces worked out and just set into place. My camera sucks and, sadly, you can't see really any detail to speak of.

I'm seeing some similarities between your suit and the one in your sig picture (or maybe it's just the color scheme?)

Where did your sig come from? I'm assuming it's from a comic--and a recent one at that, but could you give a little more information on it?

Well they didn't have enough black foamies at Michael's so I just grabbed some blue so I'd have enough to work with. I just got kinda creative in coordinating the 2 colors but that's pretty much it :lol. I had originally planned on just doing the whole thing in black Plasti Dip once I was finished building it. After looking at it a while, though, I'm thinking about leaving some blue in there... I haven't decided yet.

My sig is from the comics, yes. It showed up in 2002 starting with issue 608 I believe. It can be seen on through Infinite Crisis.. as well as others I'm sure. I'm waiting on a T-shirt to come in stock with this logo on it!(it's my fav. batman logo)

I'm thinking of going with a begins cowl actually. My problem at the moment, however, is budget... I'm considering just modifying a Rubies and seeing where stand from there. Any suggestions are welcome though!(or deals lol!)

If anyone noticed(it's hard at this point i'm sure, as the suit isn't very far along at all) the suit is somewhat inspired by the begins suit. It is much more simple and has much of my own design, however.

The suit IS coming along fast, I agree! Much faster than I anticipated haha. I just can't help it... Every time I sit down to work on it, I look up at the clock and suddenly it's hours later and I've got a huge chunk of the project completed...:lol

I love it when that happens!

I'm really digging your design, too. Some brothers here have modified Rubies cowls in varying degrees of success, so I'm sure the archives will help you out there a lot. I'm excited to see more progress on this suit!
