    Hey everyone! Decided I'd make my first thread on my build process of my Batman Begins suit. Gearing up for my first con this weekend at Wizard World. The entire suit came from Kevin (coofunkcurly) minus the under suit and UD Replica boots. Amazing quality on the armor pieces. Looks like I snatched it right off the movie set lol. Anyways as of today I have the torso and legs mounted but will need some touching up. Tomorrow I'll make holes in the armor for the cape clips and add the forearms, knees, and calves to finish it up. Heres todays progress photo :)

    Quick question - what adhesive did you use to secure your armour?

    Thanks for that - I have the same armour kit from coofunkcurly. But I am sticking mine to a 4 way stretch vinyl matte black spandex undersuit. (http://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/product/11277 - for those that are interested). It looks like neoprene but is a lot lighter and breathes. I am securing the armour with Loctite Superflex Gel about 1 inch in from the edge and then Aquaseal Urethane Repair for the edges. Not so sure about the Aquaseal - it's still tacky after a couple of days is some places and not so sure about the Locite as I managed to pull a test piece off the Spandex. So I guess I'll see what happens in the long run.

    I don't want to hijack this thread. It' belongs to 1badevo9 and is about his build not mine. However, hopefully he will indulge me one last time.here is a link to an undersuit design

    http://forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=284344.

    Find yourself a tailor or dressmaker, show them the above pics, get them to measure you up, order the amount of your chosen undersuit material based on their measurements and have them make the undersuit for you. You might like to add a zipper in the wrist, ankles(if you go full leg) and the crotch. Spandex world will allow you to purchase a sample swatch of cloth if you wish to examine the material before you buy.

    Here's my finished suit

    Exactly what GasmanR said with the undersuit. I used that link as reference to my undersuit which I had made by a seamstress to my measurements. Now on to the finished product :D These photos were from Wizard World here in Des Moines this past weekend. Enjoy!

    Here's a video from Wizard World that I attended. The 1min 30sec mark is where I get asked a question and I get to do the Batman voice lol. After you get a nice look at the suit and how well the hero cape flows when I walk.
