used four bolts to attach shin guards to my leather gauntlets. Before attaching em I plasti-dipped the guards and also tore out the foam and straps.
kind of looks like the new 52 ones!
The cowl is all foam, from 3mm craft foamies if i remember. I sealed the outside only with mod podge then plasti dip sprayed about four layers. Its super comfy and shapes to my face. used the Arkham origins foam Pepakura, of course sized it, and added the brows and some expression. I cut out holes around the ear areas and glued some black cloth for better hearing. (seen better in pic3) pony tail is a bonus, but i hide it in my neck piece LOL
