    yeah man i want to eventually build a screen accurate suit.
    the cowl is cast off screen used, the gloves are patterned off screen used, the cape is cut off a screen used 89 cape and i have a belt coming off herowares cast off screen used also.
    the cowl has no defects from what i can see and is very comfy.
    i will check your build out now dude.

    Good choice. I myself am about to start my returns suit. Just finished my 89 and it turned out really good. Just took me about 7 years to my liking.

    Hi thanks mate and yeah he's working on returns atm to my understanding should be done in a few weeks I think.
    The hard part is accurate boots tbh the nikes are running quite expensive these days.
    The cape is pleather but its quite heavy also so the weight looks about right, I went for a cheaper option so I could save for the armor but I might eventually coat it in latex for more accuracy.
    Just waiting for a snowy night now so I can get some decent pics .

    Looks amazing dude i was close to putting a bid on one of his capes on eBay not too long ago but missed unfortunately .
    Next im going to start on the under suit maybe get a plain black Lycra then sew some stretch pleather in the gaps that are visible then after that its the armor then the boots.
    Im not going into as much detail as you to do the harness etc tho.

    Go to color and they give you the option for liquid leather black.
