    This Batman suit is comfortable and easy to move around in. Here's what I spent on it:

    $250 Cowl
    $50 Neck armor (still have yet to glue it to the balaclava)
    $10 Balaclava
    $75 Rubies full body suit and belt
    $20 Cape
    $150 Bronze Armory Gauntlets
    $20 Gloves
    $60 Gotham 100 boots
    TOTAL - $635 (not including shipping)

    The nose has no holes underneath, so I will have to cut some in there so that I'm not a mouth breathing-Batman haha! The neck part may be difficult to glue to the balaclava, but I'm going to try. Can't wait to put it on again for Halloween parties...the wife is going as a sexy Catwoman ;)

    Looks nice, considering how much you spent on it and that some parts are rubies.

    Without the cape on, my shoulders look ridiculous because they are so puffy from the Rubies suit. With it on, it doesn't look that bad because I can cover them ;)

    Best and easiest way to do this is use a small pencil soldering iron to melt the holes in. Makes it easy to take out what you want and you wont have the jagged edges. ;)
    Oh and looks good all put together.

    Where did you source your gauntlets and gloves from?

    Gauntlets were from eBay and the gloves were from a Yamaha bike store here in town

    has anyone ever tried cutting the individual armor pieces off the rubies bodysuit to make it fit better?

    Wow that suit fits you perfectly. I've never seen the rubies suit fit anyone that well. It really improves the look. And jeez, I wish I had your shoulders, haha
