Re: A NEW foamies Batman Begins, begins..(Update 10/2)


I'm totally lovin' this costume so far. That belt is excellent. I totally have to pick a few of those up this Halloween and try this.
Anyone know if there's any difference between the Rubies Begins belts and TDK belts?

As far as I know, they're the same thing. You'll just have to change the configuration of the pouches and canisters depending on which movie, though.

Nice job on the belt! And your armor looks very good---doesn't even look like foamies! Can't wait to see it all finished. :batman

Wow, sorry for the long overdue post guys.

I‘d like to thank everyone for their patience in this project and as promised the moment we’ve all been waiting for! The foamies ARMOR!

(un plasti dipped)

Before I begin this pseudo tutorial, I’d like to emphasize that a need for a mannequin and a heat gun is a MUST in this project. I believe a brother in the trading section was selling the exact mannequin that I used during this project for a pretty decent price.

I however do NOT recommend heating and stretching it to YOUR body as the foamies needs to be pretty hot to move, and unless you’re willing to get bat burned, be my guest. Lol!
 :rollin

As with all armor, I believe what really makes this armor standout from regular 2 dimensional foamies armor is emphasis on the abs and breast section of the suit. As long as these two parts are 3 dimensional we can achieve a look far beyond what 2 dimensional foamies was meant for initially. Think OUTSIDE the box ;)

Image


Part 1: The Abs

Lets first start with what everyone is hyped on. The sweet abs section.

Image


Utilizing the concept that brothers around here had discovered months ago, technology has helped us take it to the next level. With access to a laser engraver, Azspidey and I was able to reworked templates from archytextural PDF’s, and had his laser engraver cut out a pseudo mold out of acrylic to heat and push an entire single piece of 2mm foamies around to give us a clean seamless symmetrically shape.

Sorry for the crappy razr cam pics…you get the idea..


Image



Of course not all of us have access to a laser engraver, so with that in mind I recommend making a mold out of foam board and have you AND a friend heat and stretch the foamies around that . Check what batsone did in this link: http://www.runboard.com/bbrotherhoodofthebat.f4.t202798

Here are some pics of batsone foamboard mold

Here are pics of OUR laser cut acrylic mold:

After running your heat gun over the foamies and while the foamies is still very hot (you can tell when it discolors, shines, and begins to curl) have you and a friend quickly run your hands and press to the shape. When the foamies has cooled and formed to the desired shape, simply fill with latex to back and hold it’s form more securely..

 Image

More to come, so please stay tuned! Up next we’ll finish the abs and start the breast and upper portion of the armor.
