    Jun 21, 2012, 2:49 PM - 50's Greaser Batman Concept #1

    So decided to finally start a new project since I completed my spiderman noir for SDCC a while back.









    Officially starting my batman costume

    design was done by Denis Medri.


    So far everything in research and initial setup complete


    I went with getting my cowl designed by sonofapumpkin who always is part of my builds in one way or another
    he will design and make my cowl

    Picked up 3 different goggles to best match the style of the piece






    Goggle 1 modern style but sleek almost reminds me of a owlman style




    Goggle 2 is a WW2 soviet aviator goggle, reason behind was to bring more realism to concept and bring in era wardrobe pieces that would work with the cowl




    Goggle 3 is again an era piece from WW2 which was used in a concept comic design for my original spiderman noir. This piece is a German Army Motorcycle Goggle




    For the belt Im thinking a retro M1 Cartridge belt with a modded bat buckle



    The leather Jacket is still being hunted down, I want something similar and simple, the arm fins will have to be added to the jacket which I figured on using some heavy veg tan leather cut, sanded, molded, dyed and stitched.

    Pants look to be denim blue levis possibly, might change those up for either dark grey denim or just grey denim altogether

    Lol yea, initially I was going to do the same as him and make my cowl completely using leather or more precise molded veg tan but I quickly changed my mind when the opportunity to do a real cowl was presented to me


    cowl pic sculpting progress pics will be posted as they are done

    I really want to see this happen. I think Goggles 1 or 2 definitely for greaser Batman. Goggle 1's style would look better if you gave the frame a metallic finish like goggle 2. Goggle 3 looks cool as well but I'd have to see it on the actually cowl to be convinced. I'd like to imagine he's got a pack of Lucky Strikes rolled up in his t-shirt sleeve.

    that actually is a good idea, I might refinish the black plastic to look more era specific worn metal, also I had the idea of tinting the lenses white, kind of a throw back to the comic white out eye style but it would look BA in my opinion or at the very least I will black tint both lenses. 1 and 2 were are closes options but I figured

    I was thinking that as well. I think the frames WITH the white out eyes would look amazing.

    If you're going to put the bat on the sweater then you probably need a zip up the center type.

    what do you guys think of using instead of the cartridge belt go with like a leather belt with K98 german pouches instead???

    quick update too other goggles have come in and they look good on the sculpt, also picked up two different shirts to transfer my bat symbol too, one in a gray and light gray. Both are slim fit shirts to get more of a vintage look

    I like the leather. It classes up the joint.

    So, have you kept that 50 pounds off?

    Can I borrow some of your exercise ethic so i can get in gear to work out?
    I like this idea for Batman and I'm amazed nobody every covered it considering we've had Gotham By Gaslight.

    Im really digging those jackets!!! I say the bottom black wide flap is your best bet, especially to show case the logo on the shirt.
    What website did you pull those jackets from? I think I may get one myself.
