as the new movie came out and its getting nearer to halloween i've decided to start making a batman suit, the one from The Dark Knight! as this is going to take me a while to make i've decided to publish it unfinished and add to it as i go so that anyone wishing to make it for halloween can do so!

ok the list of materials will be added to as i go along, i wont be using anything too expensive, simply cause i don't have that much money!

Step 1: Equipment

ok for the arm parts i'm using:

2 bicycle tyre innner tubes
super glue
old shin pads/making them from light wieght air drying clay!
<p>hi my name is keanthony i was wondering if you could teach me how to make a real batman suit</p>
Are you wearing hockey pants? <br> <br>
Love, one of the easiest and most cost effective costumes with a great looking outcome. Very professional outcome. I'm more of a visual learner though, so if more pictures of each step and one of the final project could be posted, that would help me and many other users!
wow, that's really well done!
I'd say it was.........(puts on sunglasses) <br> <br>*Medium Rare* <br> <br>
amazing piece of work esp. on a budget. <br>how'd you make the chest so symmetrical/detailed with the molding clay? <br> <br>great job man! you own halloween
How did you size your arm for the gaunlet?
Can you post a picture?
Most intriguing. Had I joined earlier, I might have suggested that you put your inner-tube rubber pieces onto a shirt, whether by sewing or gluing. This would give your work the structure it needs, rather than &quot;hanging off of you&quot; as it seems to be doing in at least one of the photographs. <br> <br>As for the boots, check out Wal-Mart or your local sporting-goods store. You can find some very Batman-esque wellington-style boots for $25 or less. <br> <br>You could also use cardboard tubing for the...um...*forearm thingies.* I forget what to call them! *ahem* Anyway, those are supposed to look like they were all made in one piece.
i still cannot get of your websight
looks more like a black Nanosuit from Crysis to me. <br>Both are awesome! <br>Good job.
your batman suit is very good. your a professional.
i can not get on your wepsight
Have you completed the suit yet? Everything else is the best I've seen
This is totally cool... but i think if u can get a cape u can save the steps for the back part (well except for the neck thats cool too!)
Are you done? Dont u need 2 do the back, and the legs, and the mask?
He said, he wasn't done. It is a work in progress.
Nice, I see you added the chest and back pics!
Make sure the Joker doesn't get his hands on you,*Shutter*
