Hey guys, this is my first time here.
I planning to create these Chest, legs and shoulder Armor set like the design of Ivan Reis Batman statue by iron studios mixed Batman inc suit lining design out of foam but I need to know which fabric best to glue and sew on these pieces to give that Texture fabric look like the statue. Which be confused by Batman grey suit cuz it look like between Nylon, leather or spendax. Plus I didn’t want too much of too much Armor look or especially rubber look for many reasons! Just comic book between moderate look of Batman. Pictures are below this message. Any suggestions is welcome and thanks for reading.

From Heavens.

Also I need to know what should I wear under the suit for Halloween night in nightclub/bar which definitely has a lot of people and probably dancing which I need something to sweat in . Should I wear under armour/Nike compression clothing in cold gear or heat gear? I been confused with this situation cuz I don’t want to sweat in my cosplay but I know it probably get cold in night of Halloween. Any suggestions are welcome.

I would go with the heat gear. Costumes tend to be hot to wear. You'll be inside a lot of the time. Plus you'll have a cape to keep you warm. If you get too hot and sweaty it will be worse when you go outside wet in the cold.

Thanks man I be sure to wear that clothing. Did you see my first question before this one? Like I said any suggestions or thoughts of which Eva foam chest armour front build from 2 YouTube videos will look great and fitted with leather, fabric when I stick with cement glue. Please help me and reply ASAP.
Thanks for reading
Kind regards

Hi Heav,

I would choose the first method, but then again I disagree on how the front abs he makes always turn out diagonal and he often makes chest plates rather than full torsos.Personal preference ofcourse.
Personally I would download this 3D model (open and convert to other format with blender):
Look past the fact that the character is fictional and take a closer look at his torso.Everything is emphasized and buff, which would be a nice foundation for your suit.For your consideration

For this kind of thing I would go with a muscle suit, with a screen printed lycra bodysuit glued on top.

There are places you can get muscle suits depending on how much you want to pay. Flexdesigncostumes do some really good ones. El_Fett on Instagram also do muscle suits. You can also make your own with upholstry foam and gluing that to a shirt or something. It's a lot more flexible than EVA foam so it might be more comfortable.

Napier's Inc also does custom work, but he does take quite a while to get stuff done.
