From the scene in Batman Begins when Bruce rushes down to the cave to go after Rachel at Arkham.
There's also this photo, a promotional shot released during the production of Begins that served as my original inspiration:
And finally, after about 4 years of already working on this, I came in contact with the set designer and production designer for the film, and got my hand on a couple of photos from the set of the actual armoire itself in full detailed color. This much was never seen on film, so there was no need for me to go as far as I did (no one will ever recognize the detail, but I would know...)
The cowl and gauntlets are real deal, cast by Infrno. He also cast the armor and is responsible for the final look and undersuit mounting. The initial sculpt was Dullam's V3. Belt and Grapple Gun sculpted by Keith Billanti, completed and painted by Johan Leiter. Boots are from Herowares, which I believe David Pea was responsible for before his UD Replicas venture. Cape is inkmonkey's, the best around, period. Steel batarangs are from synasp.
All I can really take credit for is building the armoire and getting everything together.
The armoire is made from the absolute cheapest pine wood I could find and took me a very long time to stain to my liking. I've installed overhead lights that come on when the doors open too. I know I still don't have the bottom set of door handles, and I'm okay with that The ones I do have are linked up to wooden gear assemblies inside the doors. Turn the handles just like Bruce does, and the wooden posts unlock the doors so it can open. The hardware all steel or brass.
