I'm starting to weather and mod the flashlight. I'm going to hit the biggest plumbing supply place I can find tomorrow. Your idea about it being cut-down is brilliant.
If ANYONE has the complete limited run of the riddler cards/envelopes released by ‘Dust’/‘Zavvi’ I’m laying all my cards on the table and making an offer of $500 for the complete set. Payment via PayPal Goods & Servies with fees covered, or an Ebay Auction, but so long as the cards are in mint condition, even if the item has been opened I will still pay $500. This has been the ONLY prop(s) I’ve wanted that I cannot seem to get ahold of, and after losing 3 auctions and 2 private sellers deciding to take better offers, I’m offering my final top dollar amount, heck, I’ll go $550, these cards to go with a Riddler LifeSize have been my ultimate want since seeing the film. If you have this box set and are interested in selling, PLEASE PM me! Thanks! View attachment 1601679
You're on the right track with your fabric. Everyone I've talked to has been using Cordura 600 denier grey, which is one of the ones you linked to. Most people have been using a pre-made under suit. There are a couple makers doing really nice ones.I just found this forum and my god you guys are amazing!
Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on what fabrics were used for the suit, I would like to get the correct texture for the fabrics.
Edit: Done some researching and found a fabric that looks like it matches. The artbook says the suit was inspired by Russian pressure suits, which are apparently made of Nylon canvas fabric and to me it looks like a solid match.
Here are a couple of amazon links to show you what I've found:
---Grey Heavy Duty Waterproof Fabric for Sewing Outdoor Cushions 600 Denier Canvas Material by The Metre W150CM, 1 Metre
---EU Fabrics 7oz PU Coated Outdoor Waterproof Fabric - Water-Proof, Tear Resistant, Cloth for Outdoor Garden Furniture, Sewing Material for Crafts and Hobbies - 150cm Wide (Grey) - to me this one looks pretty close if not perfect
---Nylon Fabric Waterproof Material 4oz by The Meter (Grey)
What do you guys think? I think it matches the fabric used for the chest armour and shoulder armour:

However I'm not sure about the fabric used of the lower torso and legs, to me they appear to reflect light differently.
I wonder did they use a different fabric for those parts?
Or, were they weathered differently?
The picture below makes it look like the lower torso has the same texture for the fabric but more frayed or something.

I'm not really sure, would love to hear your thoughts
Do tell me if I've missed something.
Also does anyone know what kind of straps these are?

The gauntlet and chest armor straps are Griplock 6 1.5" belt webbing. I've been told that you can buy it in bulk from their site, but I have yet to see how. Men's Gunmetal Belt
