these are football shin pads, or for the USA people, soccer shinguards. And I had a spark of an idea. They are strong, sturdy, comfortable, and more to the point CHEAP!!! So I bought them for £10, which is about $14. This site in the states sell them for $10 - Kids Nike T90 Charge ShinGuards >> Lifetime Return >> JR T90 Shinguard in the UK you could find them cheaper, but for a £10 note I thought what they hell. Got them home and just did a quick foam pieces and did this:



This took me all of 5 minutes to do, and 3 of them was opening the packages :) But done with more time, and paint job on the cover area, I think they would make a pretty good addition to a batman costume. And there are so many different options out there, which are CHEAP.
Such as:


or:




So anyway, I hope that this will help some of you, in some small way, for an alternate solution, which does not cost an arm and a leg to create.
Thanks for looking and remember to share you builds people!!:)
