Re: Reznor9's Batman: Arkham Origins Build


Lol. Been getting a lot of compliments on the previous chestplate but I can't help but feel it needs more refinement. I went back to the drawing board again hoping to learn from my previous builds...
First was too rounded and looked moobish.
Second had good sharp angles but I think in my template I cut off too much from the original template resulting in a much more shallow chest.
My third is a combination of the two as I've attempted to round out portions of the chest to provide depth while maintaining the sharp aggressive angles that give it that tactile look. The result I think is pretty decent so far as it has the angles and I was able to give it enough material to round out and provide a little more outward bulk in the lower pectoral area. But I can't form a solid opinion until I've put together both sides of the chest. In the meantime I took a couple terrible pictures for you to look at. emoticon The chest emblem was just again digitally tacked on.

Finished cutting and piecing together the rest of the chest tonight. Decided to check the sizing against myself as its been a while since I've sported my origins cowl. I gotta say, that even though i haven't cleaned it up or layered the vinyl yet, I really like this design. It makes all the previous fails feel like stepping stones instead of wasted time.

Thanks Solefreak. Appreciate it. Feels good to pull this project off of the back burner and start making some progress on it.

Re: Reznor9's Batman: Arkham Origins Build


Using one of my prototype chest builds as a test piece to practice my weathering and battle damage techniques... I've never liked the look of fresh armor as such I'm planning on adding quite a bit of battle damage to my finished suit. Not a bad first attempt if I do say so myself.

Re: Reznor9's Batman: Arkham Origins Build


Yesterday was abs day at my cosplay gym. Spent a couple hours working on the abdominal portion of my costume. Was halfway though wrapping a set of abs I made earlier and decided the abdominal template was all wrong and needed to go back to the drawing board... Also the way I was going about wrapping the vinyl was prone to error and misalignment... Frustrating? Yes. Started over, tried something different. Looks loads better and I'm really happy with how the vinyl wrapped around each ab piece. The sizing when transferred to foam however is off so I didn't bother color matching the vinyl this time around. I'll need to redo it and make them a little smaller by shaving off about an inch on the width. But not a bad try.

Later on tonight I plan on redoing the template...the way it stands now is the image on the left... The end result should look like the photoshopped image on the right. Which makes it much more proportionate.

Took about an inch off the total width of the abdominals. Doesn't make a huge difference but to me it's enough of a difference not to off-set the chest... Now that I have the scaling right I'll start wrapping these ones in vinyl. FYI the belt is from my old costume. I'll be making a larger one for this build.

And success. Abs cut, wrapped, colored and sizing is on point. Can't wait to add weathering and battle damage to the whole ensemble. Still a long way to go but Im seeing the light.
