Batman Begins... foamies templates.


So I've acquired a Batguano resin belt kit and have had some time to start prepping it. The kit is very impressive, however I wasn't a fan of the subtle "orange peel" texture on the main links.
Not a knock on the belt, just not my personal vision for the belt. So I've been spending my free evenings sanding down everything. additionally I'm going to be using styrene for the "chrome" pieces so I needed to file those areas down so I could cut stock pieces of styrene to glue in. Image

Additionally I've begun experimenting with foamies for my begins armor. Pay no attention to the lovely green color foamies (Go Ducks!!!) but this is my first attempts at creating the rib sections. comments and thoughts are welcome.

Re: my Batman Begins... foamies and resin


thanks guys. I'm really trying to ease into the suit portion since it's going to be so difficult.
Eden, thanks for the latex tips, I was going to experiment and see if resin works with foamies on the upper chest portion. I want that armor feel to the chest.I'll post the templates I'm making up here so everyone can use them in pdf format. they're still a work in progress as I'm learning as I assemble, but I'm more than willing to share.

Bryan, I saw the knees for your begins foamies legs, and if the rest of the legs turned out half as good, they're gonna be amazing.

Blakjak, didn't get your email, shoot it to me again

Lord Pupmind, This seems to be the only way I canm afford the armor, so this is the approach I have to take at the moment. I't love to have some Luda or BobD armor but they're a little out of my range at the current moment. I'll admit I'm a little nervous about the time line for halloween but I'm used to pulling allnighters when the time comes to finish something so I'm confident I'll have something. I just don't want to rush and put something together I know I could do better.

cool, looks like you're off to a good start there.
nice belt kit as well, i like it when people moddify things (even just slightly) to their own preferences.

good luck with the rest of the suit, i cant wait to see more pics of your progress!

That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile way and you have their shoes

Re: my Batman Begins... foamies and resin


Thanks Martyn,
and Congrats on the win, I was kinda holding my breath that I was gonna win the belt and legs, but I'm more than happy to take the symbols. I'm probably gonna be a slow poster for this since I don't want to rush, but expect to be kept in the loop through here. It's fun to post and get tips and suggestions ( or the occasional "looks good") to keep your spirits up when you feel like shredding the whole blessed thing.
