I recently realized I never posted anything about this suit here. Which is crazy because it's my favorite build I've done.

And last but not least, I got a pic with the man himself, Mr. Neal Adams

People really get a kick out of this costume. Especially older folks, I always hear "Now there's MY Batman!" I do have plans to resculpt the cowl. I really am proud of my 2nd one but it crushes my nose very badly so this time I will make sure to fix that this time around.

That is so awesome!!! That is my Batman. To this day with all the different interpretations that's still the one I picture when someone says Batman. I've always wanted to do this bat suit, but I'm fat and don't have the guts. Really great costume!!

The first time I looked at these pics I only looked at you and your suit, which is really cool BTW, but I just looked at the pics again and saw the kids. Good for you if you helped them out with their costumes. Also, good job the cowl. I appreciate your kinds words to me about my work but you have done something I have not yet been brave enough to do...sculpt, cast and mold. Good job Bigbat!

So I've been pretty busy as of late. I wanted to upgrade my Neal Adams comic batsuit for Comic Con this year. I still have a lot of work to do.

First up is my muscle suit. I drew out new muscles that fit my body better.

Under my old top.

This is after the muscles have been "skinned". Make it easier for the top to slide on.

This was a test fitting with the new top, trunks and belt I'm working on.

My new belt before it was painted.

Acrylic tubes and cabochons to make the capsules.

And here are the belt and chest emblem done.

Still have a few tweeks to work out with the muscle suit. Should be done with it in a couple days.

That's awesome! My favorite version of Batman. I am sculpting a bust of the Neal Adams Batman right now!! Great work!

Test fitting today. I mounted the chest emblem to the top. Also redid the closure of the cape. I also come to the realization that I'm gonna have to make my own trunks. The ones I have don't come up high enough for me. The ones I plan to make will be pleather so I can paint them to match everything else.
