    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    I've been looking into this myself. The top looks very fitting and 'spandex like' but without the shine, almost like the merino wool base layers I see in camping shops. The downside is they're not cheap, a long sleeve one will run you about £50 UK money, maybe if you're buff you can get away with a tight generic black t shirt. There's not enough of a good look at the rest of his costume, so far all I can see is "it's black".

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    I am looking for fabric with a similar texture which I will either be able to see through or I will add very small pin holes in the fabric that will only be noticible up close.
    Aa for the top it looks veey similar to my running tops except with long sleeves so I plan to get one and very carefully re colour the stitching them.
    The trousers seem to be slim fittes combats however finding ones with the zippers on the thighs is proving difficult

    Sure you want to make this suit and not wait for the red suit?
    The producer said the red suit would appear near the end of the first season

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    This costume does nothing for me. It reminds me of Rex Smith's DD costume in the Hulk TV movie.
    I MUCH prefer Ben Affleck's.

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    I love afflecks suit. I'm waiting for the red one from the show to decide which one I want however a good daredevil suit isn't cheap so this suit is a nice budget build and I like the homage to man without fear

    Have you made any progress on this? I am looking at piecing this costume together as well, and I think you are on the right track with the combat pants.

    $_57.JPG This shirt is on ebay and has similar seams to the one on the Film Ink cover. I think the gloves are some sort of motocross gloves. I found several that are similar but no exact matches.

    Oops, double post.

    There is also an "oversized" bandana on amazon, full black. Cheap and might not be the same material

    So I just finished the whole show and after seeing DD'S ninja suit in action I really don't like it lol
    However I really do like his new red suit and thinking of going with that instead only adding the classic DD to the chest :)

    Any luck on the ninja pants or bandana? Might end up just going with black slim jeans.

    He's wearing cargo pants if you going close enough slim chinos would work better then jeans I did notice a logo on the arm of his top in the episode...

    Spoiler

    He talks to risk for the first time in the warehouse with vladmir

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    The boots are Black 8inch Bates combat boots and the shirt I believe is https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/m...-long-sleeve-compression-shirt/pid1257471-001 but with logos removed or covered up and the stitching is either dyed red or redone in red.
    Here's the boots, you can see them really good in the 102 hallway fight.

    The bandanna might be made out of a big piece of lycra. Much like how you can see out of the full body morph suits.

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    Looks like several good shirt options. Anyone find anything close for the pants or gloves? Also, in episode 6, it seemed as if he had some kind of diamond pattern forearm protection on top of his compression shirt.

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    Yeah I just bought it. There was only 4 left so I figure if this is a big item for Cosplayers then better get it now before they are gone. And if I find the exact shirt later then I can always buy another one that's more screen accurate

    As for the pants I have these. I bought them on ebay belive Amazon has them too. Great strong military style pants. Knee pads are removable and they resemble what is worn in the show. I have these for my ultimate cyclops uniform so figure I could use them with daredevil too.

    Alixiexpress sell knockoff boots.

    I know most of you are discussing the black suit however I am working on the red one and wondering if anyone can tell if the black parts of his suit are carbon fibre or leather?

    Also I just got all my materials for my own costume, cost me a total of 80$.
    Best part about it is that these are all things I need in real life, compression shirt, new boots, some cool armbands, etc

    Now I just have to figure out what to use for the bandana mask

    I looked for ribbed cotton then was going to use a pin to make very small holes for better visibility
    What boots did you go with I'm gonna need a similar set for my red suit

    Re: daredevil Netflix costume

    Actually I will post everything I bought:

    71kCe3EvZLL._SL1500_.jpg
    These are the Hexpad Armbands. There are some hexpad arm bands but they are small and only cover a small amount of fore-arm. The costume itself looks like it covers his entire forearm so I went with these. Cost 20$ on Amazon.ca
    boots.png
    These boots actually look quite cool, not screen accurate but close enough. These will also serve me in case in need them. Cost 45$ free shipping on Aliexpress
    gloves.png
    These gloves look really cool, they have some sort of mesh looking thing. Again, not screen accurate, but have the knuckle guards and are dirt cheap. cost 5$ free shipping on AliExpress
    shirt.png
    Which brings me to the compression shirt which is arguably the weakest link. It has some big text over it, not sure how to cover this...spray paint? The red is pretty good, and appears stiched, just like the one in the show. Cost: 8$ free shipping on Aliexpress.

    As for pants, I already have black Chinos that look perfect for the suit which I got from Uniqlo when I visited the states.

    Just need to find a way to make the mask

    From what I have been hearing the one I posted before that was on Amazon has sold out in various sizes. Guess the grape vine is saying it's the same shirt. Not sure if it's true or not. And no logos to worry about either
