alrighty then,a quick update.batmanreturns wrote:well,i had given this project up for dead when i ordered a cowl and the deal went south,but i sorted a new cowl from a different source,and voila,here is the first fitting.
i just need a decent faux leather cape now,and the 'batman' shall indeed return.
no pics this time,as a photo of a bag full of fabric would be reasonably boring for most.
picked up today,six meters of faux leather fabric. good,decent weight,not overly glossy black. six meters of black inner lining, two
dowel rods,and some black 12mm bias binding.
the whole she-bang has some decent weight to it,so i expect it will do the job nicely.
i have taken some decent time over the entire getup,to ensure that everything is right from the get-go.
body suit,gauntlets,boots and belt are all ready to rock.
hoping to get a fan friendly, respectful 'batman' on the floor.
if all else fails,i'll go for the 'batmetal' version of batman
