I am planning to just plasti dip the armor and then paint it. After that I am going to attach it to a compression shirt and pants. I also have a pair of work boots I am going to paint ant craft shin gaurds for. I willbe posting more pictures soon.

What color are you doing the armor in? If your going gray and black I suggest just painting it all with plasti dip since its flexible and durable. Lowes ( well at least my local one ) has like every color and the gray looks really good. I used it for my belt and the little boot covers for my origins costume

I used black plasti dip for the primer and smoke grey krylon for the top coat. It gave it a more armored look. Love your suit btw. My cape and the legs are the only thing giving me issues at the moment. I am planing to do my belt more gold/bronze than flint it in grey too.

Thanks I'm redoing the abs in thinner foam cause the thickness of the floor tiles I used makes me look fat lol

Check out Walmart, they have 5mm yoga mats. I think they are 12.00. They should work quite well. Also there is an alternative too the floor squares, also at Walmart is a roll of work out flooring that is the same material as the squares but thiner

I usually get the silly winks foam from hobby lobby since they have all kinds of thicknesses

Updated!!! I finally found the time to work some more on the top part of the suit. Chest, arms, shoulders, and gauntlets done. I will be adding the bat later today. Still not sure if I want to make the boots from foam or just buy a pair. Here are some new pics.

I added the bat logo the other night. It is made of 2mm foam hat I covered with 2 layers of plasti dip then a layer of black paint and clear coat. The over all effect gave it a leather look.
