    So thought I'd try knock out a Red Hood Arkham Knight costume.

    Reference:
    BM_AK_RedHood_Statue_55357a4166cb88.33556698.jpg BwBofGhCcAAvc88.jpg

    Jacket and pants will be leather, also going with a zipout leather hood, so I can swap in a hoodie if I'm not happy.

    Mask so far.

    Plan to add something to sides of chin to give it that respirator look.

    Thanks! selecting leather for jacket at moment, I'm having trouble getting a really light grey, so I'm gonna opt for white on shoulders (it's white on some toys and pics) and going dark grey for main body front, this will also have red detailing in leather.

    Definitely go for the white on the shoulders. Those can easily be weathered to the shade of gray you would like.

    And the mask looks great! I'm sure there's some bit of piping or hardware among the shelves at a store like Home Depot that would serve the purpose of the respirator. Glad to see someone giving this costume a shot!

    Version 1 jacket is a little off, so some adjustment to be done for version 2, but here's it is so far.

    I think his helmet is shaped more like the arkham knight

    Yeah, little improvising at low cost. Shape does differ between reference images and toys, so a little imperfection doesn't hurt I figure.

    Totally I improvise too lol. I was surprised when I got that one from GameStop and it was different from all the other pics I've seen. But I haven't seen the one from the game yet since the photos have the helmet not showing. But on this figure when you pull the hood back it's very similar to the arkham knight

    Version 2 mask, eyes holes are now lots of small holes instead of 2 large eye holes, this conceals them better.

    Looking great so far!! Any chance you'd be willing to share what you're using for the drop leg holsters and knee/shin guards?

    Cheers,

    For my drop leg I've take my Deadpool movie costume ones.
    Here's the back panel. http://www.ebay.com/itm/111453682310

    And the holster is fixed on to back panel. (horizontal straps can be removed and you weave this through back of holster)

    Where did you get the material/leather for the jacket if you don't mind me asking?

    I work in collaboration with a guy in Pakistan, so all jacket materials used are sourced from there.

    Very cool, good job on the costume by the way! Currently working on a similar Red Hood costume myself and was having a hard time finding the right kind of white leather to add to a leather jacket I had lying around.

    I could maybe get you some pricing on some, but it would be shipped out of Pakistan so that might not make it worth it (with cost of leather and shipping)

    Sounds like it might cost a little more than I would be willing to pay haha. I appreciate the thought though, thanks!

    Hello everyone,

    Loving the work so far - Sooo cool!
    I have the model from arkham knight of red hood and I sadly can give you this model because my friend ripped this and he said that I can give this to anyone, but I can take as many renders as I want and I provided you guys with some HQ renders, Hope this helps:).


    *Disclaimer*
    The images are not meant to be shiny, only the helmet.

    Link for all render (below) -
