    My batsuit is taking forever to finish but I am getting there, worked on the bicep and elbow plates, I will be wrapping the vinyl tomorrow if I have time

    I used a cheap motocross shin guards to make the shapes, taking the pieces apart and heating up the foam inside of a deep Tupperware dish helps a lot

    Really loving this build! The texture is perfect and I love the way you've used the direction of the lines to really amp up the design. Looking forward to more, cheers!

    I am impressed someone noticed the small detail with the fiber lines, I want the suit to flow and compliment itself. Everything going one way would look tacky and unbelievable. Thank you for showing interest in my build, I still have alot of work to do, hopefully I can get the gauntlets done by the new year

    I felt like it was a much needed process to fix the blades on the gauntlets and instead of going to DOJ route, I used the blade design from the dark knight gauntlets, seems like they fit better
