    Dec 13, 2015, 3:45 PM - Hand made Carbon Fiber Arkham Origins Suit #1

    My previous attempts at a custom suit was decent but now I am ready to take on building a replica of the Arkham Origins Batman suit

    I have started with the abs, wrapping them with a carbon fiber vinyl over EVA foam pieces (notice the weave of the fiber is going different ways on the abs)

    I will be working on the chest plates next and hopefully I can get this done by next Comic-Con

    I am also using this armor in our web series as an upgraded suit, I currently have the cowl, cape, and boots

    Here are some pictures

    Got the ab plates assembled and they look great, I have to finish the rest of the stomach so I can get a good design down for the chest

    The ab plates are all seperate from each other for easy movement and deters excessive wear and tear during filming

    Thanks Rick, I appreciate the compliment and motivation. This project is going to take some time working 50+ hours a week and two children. I hope to get this done, plus a Robin suit for my daughter before Comic-Con

    With only a few tries and looking at a highly detailed Batman action figure, I was able to get the pectoral plates cut out and trimmed before I used a heat gun to shape it, the wrap will come tonight and pictures as well

    All of these parts are hand drawn with assistance from rules and other items, and cut using a fabric blade.
    Thank you for the compliment

    Thank you polandman and no files, no pep, no 3d printing. Like i have said above all parts are drawn, traced, cut, trimmed, and assembled by myself.

    That is totally BADASS. Now I'm thinking a new version of my Origins suit is in order. Great work.

    The other half will have to wait until my rubber mats come in
