That's fantastic! What did you use to make the headgear...it looks like they use neoprene.
edit: I'm not a longtime fan, I'm, a new one as I just started watching the show on the Hub and did research and read all about their history and such. I've got that damn "Burger Rain" song stuck in my head all the damn time now!

In the top pic is that when travis barker was the drummer?

@Eopie Herder, the helmet, goggles, and rash guard are available from the band's merch site. The helmet and goggles are made of wet suit material.
@justinbauler, that picture is a publicity shot from the new show on The Hub network. Travis Barker was the drummer way back before he was in Blink-182.

Thanks for the info! You have some more detailed pictures than I could find. I did notice a lot if differences in all the shots I could find but figured it was angle, etc causing the changes. I noticed at least 2 belts as the first belt they wore with the blue rash guards had a blue circle behind the bat. I had noticed the pockets and pick holders but omitted them from my design as they would be unnecessary for my purposes.
Thanks again for the pictures!

I love this! I been a Aquabats fan since I was 12 and now im 26. I got out my sewing machine yesterday and made a very crummy verison using craft foam and a laminated printout of the bat logo and sewed it on. Yours is so much better! I wish I could make one this nice!

I have loved the Aquabats for about 10 years now, so of course i jumped on the opportunity to introduce my son to them. He's 3, has been listening to the cds for about a year now and never misses an episode of the show.
I bought him his own rashguard, helmet & mask (It didn't show up for a while...but Spike sent me a message, and told me it's on it's way!)
I decided to attempt to make him a Powerbelt, i went to my local fabric store about bought black, silver and white vinyl fabric as well as "non-stich stiching" glue and velcro.
I just measured and cut each piece of vinyl, and pieced it all together using the fabric glue.
I used an Xacto knife and made everything, including the Aquabat out of the vinyl fabric, which seemed to help to make it all look like 1 piece once complete, rather than different textures pieced together.
This is my finished product, which isn't an exact replica due to his size (I made it custom to his waist, so I didn't have enough room to make it exact).
Since this worked so well, I plan on making one for myself, and attempting to recreate the pockets exactly, and I figured I would share my results with anyone on here looking to make one as well.

I love finding people who have the love for The Aquabats! as I do. I'm from the East coast and it is a rarity for me to find someone who knows of them. I try my best to educate those I bring the goodness of The Aquabats! to. They need to know the way.
I'm new to all the craft making and stuff, but very interested. This is going to be one of the first projects I plan on making in the near future.

Janna, That cam out really good! GOOD JORRRB!

OK I need to look up this Aquabats thing - this thread looks like too much fun for me to be missing out on.

Sorry to dig this up, but I just ran across this thread. I am a propmaker for the show and just wanted to confirm M Constantine's information to be true.
@RubyJanna, that belt is Awesome! It's pretty much spot on!
There is an episode that may or not have been released yet where they use a button on their belts that is only present when they need to activate their stealth mode (they don't actually disappear, but rather their costumes change to purple). I'll see if I can find some pictures I took after I finished the buttons. I used a piece of 1" copper tubing, shot it silver and cut some 1/4" milk acrylic to fit the inside diameter and put a couple purple Led's behind it on a remote switch.

That is awesome^! Love watching the show with my children, and I'm guilty of watching it by myself as well . Fun show!

That's actually pretty common, especially for younger parents. It's toted as a kids show but's secretly aimed at 20/30 somethings.

Thanks so much for all the info! I would love to see some photos!

Just started watching the Super Show last night! I and my wife love it, and I am going to definitely make a Bat costume for at least myself. The show is hilarious!!
