First: Ive never done anything like this before so dont laugh.
Second: All credit goes to the fine efforts of Omel http://www.therpf.com/f24/batman-bat...ostume-126746/ and Chimmera30 http://www.therpf.com/f24/batman-dar...a-foam-116224/. Anything that is broken or screwed up is totally my fault.
After wandering around through a couple of different ideas and a couple of hundred threads I finally decided that I wanted to do a Batman costume. As I said before Ive never done anything like this but you guys... you people make it look so easy... alas. It is not. But here's what Ive done.
So, I could only find one pep of Batman's cowl and I didnt care for it so I decided to create my own. I used closeups of a fantastic Dark Knight model/toy found here The Dark Knight | The Pop Culture Junkie. This is what I came up with:
To this point it's all cardboard and duct tape. I looked at Omel's cowl and never could get my head around how it was made so I riffed my own idea. I have since learned the secret of plastic bags and duct tape.
Really doesnt look awful so far... so here is where I start to go wrong:
That is thin craft foam.
