    Hi I'm 17 and I love batman so I figured hey, why not try to make my favorite suit? So that is exactly what I'm gonna do, I'm going to make the whole suit from "the dark knight rises". So far I'm working on sanding down my plaster positive getting ready to mold it so I can cast the cowl

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg So far I have sculpted the cowl and molded it, after molding it I sealed it back up and filled it with more plaster, here's where I made my first mistake. When I poured the plaster in it was still too liquid and not solid enough yet so it all poured out the bottom through cracks...TWICE, the third time was the charm though of course, except for the fact that the paster positive came out with slot more blemishes then originally. Next Im going to finnish sanding the positive and then mold it again followed by the cast from that mold I hope to get all this accomplished by Friday so I can get cracking on the chest. ANY and ALL feedback is welcome, I'm just a 17 year old trying to get into the prop/costume making world!

    Awesome to see someone building a suit from scratch! I started doing special effects when I was about 14, so I totally get where you are at my friend :)

    Here is a link to my build web site, it may help with some ideas on how I did it: http://mycollection.co.nz/batman/index.html

    Cheers

    Hey man thanks! The ironic thing is that your YouTube video on how you built your suit is what gave me the idea to start making mine haha, by the way, your suit, is simply amazing!!!
