    Jul 25, 2013, 10:11 AM - Upcoming Project(s): Robin (young justice) & The Black Mask #1

    As a batman fan i was looking for a cool costume to make.
    first i wanted to make a Nightwing costume.. But that was .. to plain..
    So I chose Robin from the Young Justice cartoon.

    Making the costume itself won't be hard. But finding the right fabrics and the right pattern to make the cape and belt.
    I was thinking of using faux-leather (aka. pleather) for the entire suit (Body + cape)
    Finding black & red isn't hard. But the yellow.. sheesh

    Plus does any1 have an idea what boots i should use?

    I'm hoping i can complete this project at the end of this year..

    I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes along.

    The second project: The Black Mask

    For a halloweenparty i want to go as The Black Mask.
    Does any1 know where i can get this mask? Or something that looks somewhat the same?

    The skull mask looks like the "Fractured Skull Mask" you can buy through amazon.
    Amazon.com: Fractured Skull Mask Adult Accessory: Clothing

    I have used this mask for my Ghost Rider costume for years and it works well. The mask is white, so you would have to do some painting.

    Use a primer to prime the surface.
    Then paint it black.
    After that you may want to dry brush the higher parts of the mask with a dark grey.
    Use ivory color for the teeth, and after they are dry add a wash of brown. This will help separate the teeth.

    When you are done use a clear coat glossy, satin, or flat to seal the paint work so it won't chip off.
