    Hi all. Thought I'd post the Batman costume I've been working on and see what people think.

    It's a hybrid of parts from the Desert Storm build, Camillo's Iron Man parts, Simple Complex's Arkham Cowl, Halo legs, and Space marine Gauntlets. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

    Not really fond of the blocky hand plates but the rest of the build is a GREAT gonglomeration of parts... Keep it up:)

    I'm really interested about how this will turn out! What are you going to do for a cape?

    Heya SampleName. Probably going to make an old school pleather cape. Don't know what I'm going to use for the belt yet. Still trying different things. I'll keep posting. Thanks for the interest and comments. Keep them coming. Every bit helps. :)

    Hi there,
    Great work .. that's a lot of work .. here's some criticism, hopefully, you find it usefull :

    - Helmet looks big on your head .. your jaw is kinda floating in the mask.
    - I agree with above .. did you use any process to harden it at all? Or is it all paper/cardboard? If you plan on even put it on a couple times, I'd strongly suggest hardening it or you'll see your hard work tear away pretty quickly!
    - Hands seem way too big to my eyes, maybe that's the style you want though .. don't know much about Batman style.
    - Thighs seem a little big too .. perhaps it's the pics though.

    All an all, what would make the biggest diff is clearly reducing the cowl size and hardening the suit!
