    I've been wanting to start this project for a bit and finally decided to give it a go. I have a UD replicas Nomex begins suit and a vision of a batsuit that lies somewhere inbetween a New 52s version and the armored injustice batsuit. Im very partial to armored looking suits and I love using 3D printed accessories that are hybrid plastics and fabrics. I have a general sense where this build is going but I am open to alot of persuation. The goal of this is to add a custom display suit my to my ever growing batsuit collection (So far 5 suits). This will be my first costum designed idea and I am pretty excited about it.

    So far I have the base of the suit (nomex) and a 3d designed and printed belt and gauntlet. My vision so far is to use the Nomex jacket and pants with the UD replicas begins pre suit boots. I use my designed printed and finished (including weathering and battle damaged) utility belt, that is a beast ( as you can see below). I will use my 3d designed, printed and finished hybrid fabric and plastics gauntlets (3d printed prototype below). I also want to design a helmet based cowl that is anchored to either fabric or a urethane cowl, for a very techy batman look.

    I am currently working on finishing the belt and starting the finishing process on the protoyped gauntlet. This project will no means be a quick one, and I do want the finish product to be on the grander side of things with a very much tech/future feel to the batsuit.

    Take a look at the pics and let me know what you think, all suggestions are welcome.

    Definitely looking good so far. If I were you I would build your helmet on top of fabric. Resin on top of urethane is going to not only be stiff but very warm. Don't bake your head, haha.

    Other than that, sounds like you know where you're heading with this!

    Just a small update. I decided to go with the DCUO Future Batman (or armored batman) mask over a fabric cowl. I have a 3d file i am working on and will post some pics soon.

    Here is the 3d model I am working off of. It required a lot of work to clean it up and make it printable.. I am currently printing it out in silver ABS, So hopefully in the next few days I'll have a tangible cowl to work with. I will be adding textured fabric to the outside of the mask for some contrast and this will be mounted on a fabric balaclava type head sock. futuremask.PNG

    Update: Finished the gauntlet prototype and i think it looks really nice. Started printing the mask/cowl, it will take a few days, but the silver ABS im using cleans up really nice with an acetone pen, so it should look sharp.

    Update with pics. Most of the work is done for the mask, gauntlets and belt. Just need to work on finishing and adding detail/ character to the pieces. Once Im happy with those finished pieces I will work on putting it together in a display with some 3D printed custom/ moded bat-gadgets.

    It is always exciting to see these projects moving forward. I really like the look of your cowl, great work so far.
