As one of my very first tries out of the gate, I am going to attempt to make Paul Pope's Batman: Year 100 design. Retro, weird, low-tech. I love it.

The cape is split up the back, almost to the shoulders:


I'm starting with the cowl, I've built a 3D model, and fellow RPF'er The Armorer is helping me convert it into a pep (which I know nothing about). I guess you could say that this is the costume that I'm *NOT* making, as life dropped the time-hammer on me as soon as he handed over the first pep for construction testing. But we're getting there, little by little.

Next, teaching myself fiber-glassing, old-school pattern-making and sewing, and possibly a little leather work.

I have high hopes. For this and one other costume in the works. We'll see...

Paul Pope's comics are weird and beautiful, by the way. Futuristic and retro all at once. I loved this story, but to read online commentary it sounds like it is a little open-ended for many people's tastes. That said, it's been out of print for a while, but looks like it's getting a new printing scheduled for this April (2013). I have the single issues, but there seems to be some costume design sketches (the top image is one of them) that I am looking forward to getting my hands on.

I am currently in the middle of a three year project. As you can see in my Avatar I have crossed Batman with Football. I have since got about half way through building a helmet and am currently researching a way to replace the football shoulder pads with something a little more stream lined. I am currently looking into doing a pep chest piece with shoulders. anyone know where I can get a complete TDK or Batman Desert storm file, it would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some wip pics from the helmet.

the faux vents would be used as a face mask
