    Not bad at all.

    It is a shame that the Bat-cowl wasn't backlit or something for the photos,
    then it would have been more visible :)

    I like it. Nice to see an old style or comic book style Batman suit. What is the material used to make the grey body-suit?

    I like the fact that it somewhat blends into the surrounding darkness... makes it more ominous :)

    Very cool....

    Looking forward to some new photos. I am not a big fan of the shiney spandex, but overall I think it looks great. You wear it well.

    Thanks all. I appreciate the comments.
    SPDO, may I ask why you dont like the belt?
    The suit is based on both Hush and The batman.
    I will be getting a more "The Batman" styled belt
    in about a week, the Emblem too. The one in the pics
    is more of the Hush style suit.

    Can't wait to see more pics, it looks awesome. The cowl looks cool like the one made for the short fan film Batman Dead end. The one where batman fights predator and alien. gotta see more pics.

    Having a cool costume is one thing. Looking cool in it is another.

    As The Mantis said, you seem to have been made for these outfits. You wear them very well. :thumbsup

    Congrats on another great score.

    That is a great cowl. Id love to do a bat suit, but I think id get in trouble because I want to drive around on the highway with my cars cockpit open, and just wave at people, ya know, go get gas, drive thru at mcdonalds, maybe make a joke about not liking clowns, that sort of thing. The crouch is cool tho. Very Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale. Nice Chin. Alex Ross should paint you as one of his models.

    Your suit looks great.

    ...but...

    I have a big problem (personal preference issue) with a blue-and-grey version not having the yellow bat-logo. I guess it stems from me growing up on the Jim Aparo version of the late '70's and '80's.

    I do, however, commend you on not going the all-black route. :thumbsup

    Yea I prefer the Jim Lee version. The blue and grey is still dark enough to hide in shadow especially with the midnight blue. The yellow would stand out too much. I have a version of this suit with the yellow emblem as well it is more iin the style of The Batman animated show that is on now.

    In my humble opinion, I think the Jim Lee style looks better on you. That little yellow oval, to me looks too much like Adam West. Ive always dug the large black bat stretched across the chest, ever since I was a kid and I got both the paperback greatest batman stories ever told and batman year one in the same day.

    There's a good reason that emblem reminds you of Adam West:

    It's from the old show, only it's the bat they used on the door of the Batmobile. The suit emblem was like this:

    I agree I am much more a fan of the Hush style with the black emblem, but I had to do this version cause the only difference is the belt and the ebmlem.

    Indeed your Bat-suit rocks. I love the look, the dark colors... I actually like the relaxing/meditaion photo even more than the crouch photo.. seems more batman-ish to me. I agree, some well lit pictures are needed to really show off such a kick butt costume. Great job.
