Picture of Batman Suit ( The Dark Knight Version)
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!

Step 2: Making the arms! part one

Picture of Making the arms! part one
Take the inner tube and cut all the way down one side of it, then open it up so the rubber lays flat cut 3 pieces the length from your wrist to your elbow.
then cut 3 one inch slots into each piece as shown in picture 2.
i'm using the inside of the inner tube to make the outside of the arm pieces cause they look better. you have to cut some small strips from the inner tube and using the super glue attach the two pieces together. using strips of inner tube stick them over the wholes you made on the inside then using a craft knife cut out the holes again leaving a 2 to 3 mm edging!
once thats been done use small strips on the inside to add the third piece to part one and two.

then to make it fit your arm cut down the centre of the third peice so it fits your arm perfectly.
fold and glue the ends over at each end to the desired length and to make it look cleaner.

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)

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 "hanging off of you" as it seems to be doing in at least one of the photographs.

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.

You could also use cardboard tubing for*forearm thingies.* I forget what to call them! *ahem* Anyway, those are supposed to look like they were all made in one piece.
