    about a year ago I sculpted my 1st cowl ....and because at the time there really wasn't many DE cowls floating around out there, I went with that version as my sculpt choice...and seeing as how is was my 1st time doing a cowl, I made TONS of mistakes...I made the neck waaay too thin, primed the finished cowl in high gloss crystal clear instead of flat black, so the cowls came out a nasty glossy sheen...and I cut the silicone mold up the back which created a really clutzy looking seam...so when I pulled the cowl from the mold, I had this glossy, seamed too tight for my head crappy cowl....

    so I went back, and fixed a resin hardcopy that I cast

    Before fix:

    adding to the neck and head and making sure that I use all of my know how that I did with my other Batman cowl that I did a few months ago

    after fix:

    I agree, great job. Take a pic wearing it. Would love to see it "in action."

    That's the first fan-made Dead-End cowl I've seen that actually captures the predatory appearance of the original. Beautiful work. Hope you offer those for sale.

    That is VERY nice. I'm not a big fan of the latex Batman cowls, but THAT one is sweet. :D :thumbsup

    I like yours better than the "Batman Begins" version (don't like short ears on my Bats) -- great job.
