Costume Information

Description
I've decided on doing the Batman begins version as it is an under cosplayed version compared to the comic designs and dark knight, I'll hopefully be making the suit out of latex with plenty of questioning to some of the more experiened latex experts in the field.

Whichever version you do, should look good (as long as it's not the Adam West version). :P

Do the Dick Grayson version! Hardly anyone has done it and I think it would really suit you.

Journal

Taking shape (Posted 12th February 2012)

The dummy has been made and stuffed and the assembly of the plates in the torso have begun. Using plasterzote for the armour plates and a neoprene wetsuit for the inner workings. Lycra was the original choice but after much thought It was decided that it would be too springy for the latex coating.

More orders (Posted 31st January 2012)

Okay put in more orders for supplies such as neoprene ect the building of the suit can commence once it gets here duck tape dummy here i come

essentials (Posted 12th July 2011)

The materials are on order but not sure weather to latex and bild up extra layers on the plasterzote or order a liquid latex rubber base will need to ask around first I think.
