I wanted to post up my Batman suit for Halloween, see what you guys think. I used Archy's templates and came up with what you will see here. I took a lot of liberties since I started work on this last week. I used 1/4 inch EVA foam for the top pieces(abs, chest obliques etc. with the only exception being the bat symbol, which was made in foamies) the under "armor" was 1/8" EVA foam and was pretty much the whole shape of the armor, like this:

Archys template:



back piece that holds everything together:



and the only parts I used from the template for the front pieces:



so after some work I came up with this:


I'm a bigger dude so... :p

did some Plasti-Dippin and:


that"s a more finished pic but you get the idea

I made the suit modular so I can remove any piece if needed, it all attaches with velcro for easy removal/replacement. chest velcroes to abs, codpiece velcroes to abs, cape velcroes to chest etc.

chest to abs section:





removable cod, for sitting and bathroom breaks:







thigh armor, only did front got lazy:



The cowl and belt are rubies, I didn't find the batman 3/4 plastic mask so I couldn't make the cowl hold it's shape better, but I did add a zipper for easier(and better looking) on/off. In the pic the cowl has old t-shirts stuffed in it to hold it's shape.



zipper






War Knight anyone?


my suited up pics suck, too dark. I'll get a better one tomorrow hopefully outside




I still have to do the shoulders, biceps, boot toppers and knee armor but that should only take a few hours tomorrow. More pics after it's all done.

Re: Begins...

Im doing the same project. Yours makes me feel lazy.i Should be done by now.Haha great work.
If you want the cowl to keep its shape and you have time. Try getting an adult batman half mask and glue it into the inside of the mask. also if you get crayola or creatology foam clay. You can set that into the ears to keep its shape. Im finishing that part of soon.
Foam Budget Begins is awesome and..at least we're not wearing hockey pads!

Re: Begins...

Very nice! You did a great job with the foamies. One thing, I think you have the gauntlets on the opposite arms, that band going perpendicular to the fins should be on the inside of the arm.

Re: Begins...

about the gauntlets... I mistakenly made 2 of the same side so... :( I might have enough time to make another though. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Begins...

I took a few pics, but i can't find my card reader, I'll post em up later. I did get this one from a friend. It had been about 3 hours and I was having a few wardrobe malfunctions by then. I really need to get some Gotham 100s, should have ordered them when I still had the chance for them to be here in time but I'm a slacker sometimes. also forgot to wear my knee armor all night. all in all, there was a couple of fights(not real), against a joker, and the peanut butter jelly time banana. Needless to say, the Bat won them both.

Re: Begins...

The texture on the foam is pretty interesting - makes it look kind of like leather. How did you get the "stitching" texture seen in the first few pictures? Did you use a heated tip or something similar?

I used a wood burning tool, but a soldering iron is practically the same thing
