    Like several people I started working on this while watching the new Netflix series. A couple others threads are out there with a "Close enough" items but nothing resembling a definitive thread of confirmed items. I'll post the ones I've found here and update as new items are identified and confirmed.

    Reference images:
    The Black Ninja Suit album.
    The Red Suit album.


    The Black Ninja Suit:

    The Black Mask: Confirmed
    According to this interview with the Costume designer the mask is made using several layers Black cotton mesh fabric. Not as much confirmation as we would like, but its a start.

    The Compression Shirt: Confirmed
    McDavid 8840R Men's Compression Shirt Long Sleeve. Black, No M Logo on the chest, correct hexagon pattern on the sleeves. The only thing missing obviously, is the red stitching. That would mean that it was done after the fact by the costume department. Click here for a screen shot that supports this theory. The stitch work is pretty shoddy and doesn't look like something that would be mass produced.

    8840R_M.jpg

    Elbow pads: Confirmed
    6515R McDavid Hex Knee/Elbow Pads.

    6515R_M.jpg



    Forearm sleeve: Confirmed
    651R McDavid Hexpad Arm Sleeve
    651R_M.jpg

    Velcro wrist strap: Confirmed
    513 McDavid elastic wrist support with red label removed. Click here for more information.

    The Gloves: Confirmed
    Ringers Carbon Tactical Gloves 557

    The belt: Confirmed
    Levi's Cotton Web Belt Silver Military Buckle.

    The Pants: Confirmed

    The arm guards are the following:

    Hexpad arm guards


    I am using the following as alternatives, which are much much cheaper (cost me 80$ total)

    I think what needs to be addressed is how the **** is the mask going to be done?
    It slips on like a beanie and has a long tail at the back.
    The material looks like lycra/ribbed cotton
    Anyone have any ideas?

    How did you create his black mask?
    We had to come up with ways to create this mask so that it wasn’t dangerous for him to wear it, but it looked like what we needed it to look like. That was really tricky. It’s made out of a cotton mesh. Layers and layers of it. It has to really conform to his head, but at the same time, he had to be able to see through it. It also had to, in Joe Quesada’s words, 'look really badass.'

    Very cool!
    if only we know which one... im going to do some digging


    Edit: So I did some real quick digging on etsy and google.

    I couldn't find something that looked similar to the suit pattern (it looks porous, like a sponge almost sometimes) in yard format, but I tried looking for a scarf version that can either be wrapped around the head or sewn.

    Here's what I found:

    black-swat-tactical-cotton-mesh-scarf-wrap.jpg
    This is real cheap, it's 15$ for a 2 meter scarf. This technically should be enough, but the designer said they wrapped it around a lot to acheive the look while also maintaining visibility...
    Downside is that i think the spaces are too big. Plus side: cheap and you can get 2 for 1

    black-mesh-rannka-unisex-cotton-urban-designer-scarf.jpg
    This one looks a bit tighter, however it's 75$ for less than a meter...into the trash

    blackmesh.png
    Here's another one that is even cheaper (9$ for ~1.5meters) Look actually perfect, good tightness in the mesh...However it looks a bit greyish...oh well...

    That's the same brand I found. I think that's definitely the sleeve/forearm. But as you can see in this screenshot its actually a combination of the forearm sleeve and this elbow pad.

    McDavid Hexpad Knee/Elbow/Shin Pad and the McDavid Hexpad Arm Sleeve.

    Good reference shot. Instead of being that one, could it have been a shooter sleeve?

    That image of the arm pads also shows what kind of belt he's wearing too. Neat.

    If the gloves are Ringers Carbon Tactical Gloves 557, what is the strapping at his wrist? I seem to recall whenever he took the gloves off, the strapping remained on the wrist.

    And yeah, the pants, mask and stick holster are the only things we still need leads on.

    Be seeing you,

    Defs wood. Going to cut some wood batons.
    I'm starting to think the holster is custom since holsters only have 1 slot

    I did some screencapping after watching a few more episodes today.

    Sticks- definitely wood, possibly 1.5 inch dowels?

    The holder. Interestingly, I don't see an attachment point on his belt, it looks like its a pair of leg straps holding it on. Probably a custom job.

    He used motocross leg armour can be seen in Nelson vs murdock the top he wears is called a rashguard you can still get them on eBay better * them up quick.
    does anyone know if he uses the same boots and gloves for his red suit

    - - - Updated - - -

    Episode 8 you can see the holster I think it's a soft shell with 2 pieces of elastic that he pulls o to his thighs everyone is best making the sticks as real escrima sticks are far longer his are more like 1 escrima stick cut in half

    Any screenshots of this? He never actually suits up in that episode, so the only reference of them is when foggy pulls it out of the box. Does anyone have any screen grabs of him actually wearing them in any episode?

    Just wanted to chime in that upon doing research on screen grabs I have, the black suit does change through the 13 episodes. The gloves you have listed are in some of the episodes and are used with the red suit with some little spike looking thing on the knuckles, but in the start of the season when he had the Russian on top of the building asking about the boy it was different gloves. They didn't have the same rubber knuckle areas and were more basic in nature.

    Thought I would help some people out that didn't want to spend extra money but wanted to be as accurate as possible. Ohh, and unless bates changed soles, I know the red suit boots are Nike SFB if the sole is any indication. I have a nice clear shot of that. I don't know if the boot changed though the show when the gloves did or not, but worth checking on also if it matters as far as gloves and boots matching up if they changed at the same time.

    I don't think he ever wears them in that scene you can see his suit on the floor I think he has a few different pieces I noticed in one episode his top is all black no red linew which makes ssense with the amount of rips in his suit.

    Are we going to be using this thread for the red suit aswel?

    Yes, this thread can be used for both Suits. I'll add in the Red suit components or fabrics as they are identified.

    Just a quick find from me. Not 100% confirmed yet, but this belt looks really close.

    Canvas Cotton Web Belt 60" One Size Matte Silver Military Buckle.

    I've used a lycra hijab, but even if I see under, I think Charlie Cox wears an half mask/loup, to maintain the lycra in position on the face.

    I would say that belt is right. However, anybody who spent time in the Navy can tell you there is a female and male version of that belt. Most will never see the female version, but just wanted to say that as a word of caution in case somebody shops for one off ebay. You could get the smaller version.
    I bet I have some of them left over from when I left the Navy. Wish I was going for the black outfit now lol.

    This is what I was thinking as well. Did you purchase it from anywhere? Is there anything elastic under the hijab that allows it to stretch?

    I was thinking of using a leftover spidey faceshell and sawing it in half above the nose if the shape isnt to my liking

    Hmm, so I guess Lycra hijab is good.
    I'm still speaking to some cloth people who are giving me opinions on the material.
    I was thinking wearing a long "ninja" bandana underneath to give it the illusion of the bandana. otherwise it will have to be custom made

    I've been thinking about the mask and I think there are 2 different versions if you watch episode 6 when he is talking to risk the mask hangs by his nose rather then conforming like lycra would it also has a ribbed pattern I would not be surprised if there was a Hero version made of a solid ribbed material that Charlie Cox could not see very well then an alternative for action that has the eye hole cut out and maybe a black mesh so it is hard to spot from a distance in the shots.
    I actually have a cheep t-shirt and the material has a small amount of stretch and looks very similar to the material used in the show however I would literally be blind having it over my eyes.
    My original plan was to use the top and make loads of needle holes around the eye are that are hard to spot unless upclose but aloe visibility

    - - - Updated - - -

    I would imagine the only things we can identify from the red suit are the boots and gloves surely the rest is completely Custom? I have a plan for the suit but I won't reveal untill I have tested it I would imaging on the show all the material is screen printed to look like Kevlar because it has to much mobility to be real

    That wouldn't be out of the ordinary, movies tend to favor looks over practicality over certain things.
    I would go for what the others have been saying and to use lycra.
    However I was recommended Slinky...not sure what this is. it looks 90% like the ribbed pattern but I dont know if its seethrough

    Yeah, too late for me, I got myself a hard-pvc nunchuk case that looks really cool and allows for the sticks to poke out like the suit.
    I will just need to find some wooden looking nunchuks

    Is that the same case I posted in my thread?
    If you are going for his normal batons the just get so hardwood dowels at 15" and 1.3" diameter would do the job well. Nunchuck handles are way to big for his street sticks however for his red Billy club they would be perferct

    Bee researching apparently black scrum is what alot of theatre companies use and the black cotton scrum does have a similar texture to DD'S mask

    Technically yes, ideally if we can get a piece of lycra or spandex sewed in the same pattern as a durag but made longer, it would be good. However normal durags are too short and seethrough, so they look weird

    Yeah, It's not the same case but I found it on another site but here's an american one for you: http://www.amazon.com/Tiger-Claw-Hard-Nunchuck-Case/dp/B00E35G174
    All I would need to do is attach some leg straps which is pretty easy.
    And yeah if nunchuks are too much ill just get some dowels

    Apparently you can won't know till it's tested I guest but I thought the textures look very similar to eachother.

    The more I loo, at the red suit I get the feeling the black sections are cordura the texture of it is very similar hope it isn't though don't like the idea of cordura around my face unable to breathe lol

    I'm really interested in his baton upgrade. They seem to be solid metal, with the majority being a knurled rod painted red. What's really interesting and confusing is the silver sections and the locking mechanism. I've grabbed some screenshots, one of which shows off a clear button of some sort and small holes for the locking system. Does anyone know how these attach/detach?

    Some of the screen grabs I have the red and the black material (around the neck and jaw area and leg) have the same exact pattern. I have been looking off and off for a few hours today and can't place the pattern/material. Cordura is close, but my gut is telling me it is different. Just the way it looks in the light and the thread pattern has not matched any cordura I have found yet. I am still looking right now at different types of materials, but so far I can't put my finger on it. I hope I can by tomorrow since I want to order it so have it ready for next weekend.

    I recently just finished watching daredevil and I really want to make the red suit.
    I will be happy when someone finds out the materials used for the red suit.

    Well, I was happy for about half a second.... the pattern the red suit's material has is identical to the reverse side of untreated kevlar. Considering how impossible it is to work with kevlar, I am going to get some sleep, hit the gym and start round two of find the main material used bright and early. I am guessing they would not spend the time and money to use neat or untreated kevlar when there has to be something identical in appearance that is 10000% more user friendly.

    So guess I will be back here to see if there are any updates around 7am. Best of luck to the rest of you searching.
