Introduction: Makedo Batman Costume
Gotham City may have its infamous caped crusader, but there is no reason why Batman should be limited to the silver screen.
Become a superhero with this Makedo interpretation of the much-loved cult classic. We’ve used cardboard and fabric scraps, paint, string and Makedo parts available at mymakedo.com
Step 1: Cut
To make your Makedo Batman Costume, begin by tracing the provided template on to cardboard. Cut out all the cardboard bits.
Step 2: Score
Use the point end of the Makedo Safe-saw and score along the dotted lines as shown in the template. This is will make folding the cardboard easier. Connect a cardboard strap to the sides of the mask using Makedo Re-clips. Ensure the strap is long enough so that the mask can sit over your eyes.
Step 3: Punch
To make the arm cuffs, connect the two end flaps together using Makedo Re-clips as shown in the image.
Step 4: Connect
For the belt connect a cardboard strap to the sides ensuring that the strap is long enough to wrap around your waist.
Step 5: Hinge
To make the cape, score along the dotted lines as shown in the template. Use the Makedo Lock-hinge on a slight angle and connect it to the centre with Makedo Reclips. For the shoulders we have used the Makedo Lock-hinges on a right angle to help give some shape.
Step 6: Cape
To complete the cape, connect fabric to the top of the shoulders using Makedo Re-clips. Place the Pin through the cardboard shoulder and Lock-hinges and secure in to place.
Step 7: Build
Finally to complete your superhero look, decorate your costume by adding features such as the bat symbol on your belt buckle. We’ve painted our costume jet black.
Step 8: Complete
Your costume is now ready for action. Wherever there’s a calling for help, put on your costume and share your adventures with us at mymakedo.com.
