|Young Justice was recommended to me by a mate at work. |
After watching the first few episodes, I loved Sportsmaster. He's just an amazing bad guy.
I guess I like him because he's more or less an evil counterpart for Batman. No superpowers, just training and some gadgets.
First wear at Expo - Things to Modify (Posted 30th October 2012)

He makes a break for Home (Posted 21st October 2012)
Both the top and the armour is now complete.
But He's Safe! Safe at Third! (Posted 15th October 2012)
Pretty much done....Just got the following to do:
.....And he nearly misses the Plate.... (Posted 27th September 2012)
So, it turns out that the bat I thought I had wasn't long enough. Seems my mother can't tell the difference between a Rounders Bat and a Baseball Bat :P
But now I actually have a baseball bat. A bit of damage to it, but what do you expect after taking it to a few Capes and their Kids.....I might give it a lick of paint to make it look better though. Just have to see how much time I have....
Slides into Third... (Posted 20th September 2012)
- Mask now complete. All straps attached, and foam padding added to the inside to make it more comfortable for a long-term wear.
I will update again after the weekend, when I know the progress of the top
And he rounds Second Base..... (Posted 16th September 2012)
I'm getting there with Sportsmaster.
All that needs doing now is:
This should be completed by the end of September, but we will see what happenes...
Mask Progress - Start to Finish (Posted 13th September 2012)
1 - I started with a Hockey style mask I bought a couple of years ago.
2 - I filled in the extra holes using milliput. I keyed the reverse part of the mask, then pushed the milliput through the holes from the inside.
3 - After sanding the milliput to be level with the front of the mask, I keyed the whole of the mask.
4 - First layer of Charadon Granite Citadel Foundation paint. I started running low on paint after this layer, so I switched paint for the next layer.
5 - 2 layers of Fenris Grey Foundation paint. Although this looks rather blue on the photo, it is a nice grey-blue.
6 - 2 layers of my own mix of Citadel paints. I really like this colour, and am painting the armour in this as-well.
Let's get the ball rolling.... (Posted 10th August 2012)
I've worked out that I have the bulk of this costume already:
For a weapon, I'm going to be looking into getting a foam baseball bat, and painting it so it looks "real".
