    Thank you.13 mm. foam for main shape and craft foam for bat symbol. And I will use 6 mm foam for another parts.

    Also I saw your thread, amazing work, congrulations. I hope mine will be turn as good as yours. In your 2015 build, what is the name of grey paint you used? I like that so much.

    My mod podge is finish. I have to order new one. Because of this at this stage it's not so much shiny. And I'm still waiting for suggestion about which grey I need to use?

    I kind of want to try this but I have a hard time understanding pepakura. Some of the parts are so thin I figure it's hard to cut them into half inch foam.

    I solve the problem with buying different size foams. Craft foam, camping mats, gym mats etc. And sometimes just need an angle cuts and sanding.

    Amazing work man! Love it.
    Some of the curves I really like as opposed to my own model so I broke down and bought the files to see how they were done.
    I don't plan on building it exact as the pep files illustrate but I am going to use some of the cuts to modify my own design.

    Thanks man. But I still think, your work is the best batsuit I ever seen.

    Update:

    I'm not glued back parts yet. I think I'm gonna glue zipper there from inside.

    IMG_0358.JPG IMG_0357.JPG IMG_0356.JPG

    And I need a suggestion. My upper arms not so much muscular. And this parts not fit perfcetly. What can I do that for this problem. Putting some soft foam inside of them maybe solve the problem. But if anybody have any suggestion for this, please share with me.

    So far this is looking awesome! I think the idea you had is probably the best way to go. What do you use to clean up the foam edges, is it wall spackle or something else?

    For to clean up foam edges I use "Tile Grout".

    Right Gauntlet:

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong but it doesn't look fine for me. This is second time I try to do that. First I cut the foam, then heat shaped and at last glue them together. Any suggestion?

    I think it looks pretty good, but i had to look at the file and cut the two pieces foam at an angle, theres a guide here on therpf that explains it better, but like i said, your stuff looks pretty good already.

    I already try it. I'll upload photos soon but I think I don't like it this time too. Maybe I do the wrong angle cuts, I don't know. When I upload photos you'll see.

    One thing I'd recommend to try and get the cuts a little cleaner is running a heat gun over the foam before cutting the pieces instead of heating it after cutting or after gluing. And if I do heat the foam after it's glued together, then I only do it on the inside of the foam so that I can change a curve or shape without affecting the seams.

    Also make sure to keep your knife sharp so your cuts stay clean and crisp, or get foam that's a little more firm and it'll be less likely to catch on the knife and tear while cutting detailed shapes.

    Good luck!

    Still trying... Something looks wrong, but I don't know what? I will add blade parts later...

    I think I solve the problem and I like them much more with this way. Problem come from the parts I've marked. They are not symmetrical in the templates.
    notsmy.jpg

    Then I play with their shapes a little and make them symmetrical. Here is the result:

    IMG_0408.JPG IMG_0407.JPG IMG_0406.JPG IMG_0405.JPG IMG_0404.JPG IMG_0403.JPG IMG_0402.JPG IMG_0401.JPG IMG_0409.JPG

    Maybe there is no major changes but this way looks better I think. Now time for the sharp looking blades.

    Update about gauntlets. Gauntlets not looks bulky like in a reference picture. So I decided to make a bottom parts. These are made by me from free hand. Here is the result.

    And any suggestion about sharp blades? What ever I try I didn't like how they looks.

    Those look really good! I can't wait until you put the blades on them.
    How well can you move in the chest+ ab armor? Is it easy or hard to bend over?

    Keep up the good work! :)

    Thanks man. At the chest + ab places, it's imposibble to move or bend. Sometimes I just thinking remade that area with different techniques. Maybe later...

    Great work! I'm really excited to see this finished! I used the file and made a muscle suit out of it which I will cover with fabric

    Finally I finished gauntlets. I decided to make new inner parts of gauntlets with free hand. Then just put the blades on the upper parts. Here is the result.

    Dude this looks awesome so far. For pants I would maybe go to an army/navy surplus store and get a pair of BDU pants them dye them black. It could have an interesting color variation, would be thick looking to fit the theme, but would still be flexible enough to be comfortable. I've never tried it but I think I will for one of my costumes

    These are upper legs parts for my suit. I'm planing to attach them to my tactical pant with some button. I was watch a tutorial about that, a guy shows his Master Chief suit from Halo and he was attach upper legs parts with some kind of button. If anyone knows that video, please share it's link.

    These are the buttons I'm planing to use:
