Re: Discuss: Batman public awareness


I personally like the mix and match and have done that so far. I have always gotten positive response with the exception of a few people who do not appove of skiing/snowboarding as Batman.

My batmodile will not the typical either but hopefully cool of I can get the paint right.

Re: Discuss: Batman public awareness


Yeah, a few years ago, I'm doing a charity appearance in my Panther hybrid suit, and some guy comes up to me telling me that I was great in Multiplicity and wants my autograph. See, he only saw a "movie" Batman, and to him that's Michael Keaton. Forget the fact that I'm wearing a suit that most closely resembles the one Kilmer wore and my belt is a Begins belt. I'm not that into screen accuracy and the whole "geek" thing. I just want a suit that looks good and embodies all my favorite parts of the suits that I like. If I were to ever do a screen accurate suit, it would be the '89. Even then, I'd prefer to see a Returns emblem on that suit. I love the Panther suit, but any one I do will NEVER be screen accurate, as I HATE the nipples. When a little kid about 6 or 7 years old came up to me with wide eyes and said "I watch you on TV all the time," that suit was screen accurate enough for me!

Re: Discuss: Batman public awareness


I ran into Indakin at NYcon last year in my Original Begins. It is basically a Begins but the body armor is completely different.

We all know Bryan is definitely into screen accuracy. Hell, I give the screen accurate guys props for it!

When we touched base again last month I reminded him of our in person meeting at NYcon and he mentioned my suit as being "different, not accurate" but interesting and different. I like that kind of camaraderie and its level of dedication to the hobby.

I mean I know it's not screen accurate, but he just HAD to mention it because it is important to him.

Totally cool.

And props to the custom bro's for being original and inventive.

Long live the hybrids!

Re: Discuss: Batman public awareness


I have done many events this last year with a couple different batmans. With Togon64, batbrat, tk1055, and zero270. They all had great batsuits. Togon has a comicsuit, tim a hybrid made of different parts from 89 92 rubies or custom, tk1055 has Comic suit with a muscle suit under it, and then zero has a begins

As far as i can tell the public loved each suit. The only thing i really noticed out of all the suits. Only 2 suits really stuck out. Zero270 begins people were drueling over and erics Comic.

So what it comes down to is any bat suit works. Being insanely accurate makes you loved.


Side note Batmans physic is on trial in the publics eye. If you want to do batman and your over wieght no big deal just make sure you carry it well or conceal it well. We had a couple of comments when tk1055 was doing one of his bats that really is affending, but sadly true. So when he wanted to do a comic batsuit i said go for the muscle suit. lol i think mine was from this board but a million sittups later i feel like a new man lol. And there is a few other comments but i dont feel like talking about batbrat it will end badly so yeah thats about it.

To the public it doesn't matter what you wear. They'll see Batman, the only difference possibly being if you're dressed as an Adam West bat, since that's a completely different personality.

The majority won't even be able to nitpick what movie you're from as long as you're wearing rubber, even if your costume is 100% accurate to 89, they might think you're from Batman & Robin. But there's a good chance it won't even cross their mind.

What gets ME is when you're wearing a comic suit (grey spandex) and someone notes on how accurate you are to a movie costume. :cookoo

Otherwise, only movie fanatics and guys like us will be able to tell the difference, and even then it's not like we'll attack eachother for being inaccurate. Hell, my costume isn't accurate to anything, really. I just went with what I liked from the comics, I even use Begins gauntlets because I haven't made myself a different set for the comic look.
