    Latest upgrades to my batsuit...

    Alright, I finally suited up in the spandex stuff.
    Again, the DE belt is from Batguano on BOTB, the cowl is a Rubies/Morris Clooney cowl, gloves are Rubies, boots are Faded Glory "Harness" boots with facades added on. The shorts are just black boxer-briefs. The gray parts are Layer8 clothing, similar to Under Armor.
    I was actually surprised that I ahev a body for spandex. Makes me confidant that I can pull off Green Lantern or Flash
    Anyway, onto the pics:





    For anyone that wants better shot of the boots, here:



    BTW, the brown pants in the above pics belong to this:

    I decided to make the boots pull double-duty.
    You might notice there's some stains around the bat.... well, that's the liquid-stitch fabric glue I used to attach it. Works pretty well, too.
    The only things that would make this better would be new gloves and cape and a real DE cowl.
    Criticism and comments welcoem,
    ZK

    Nice job! I'd see if you have a tack shop (for equestrian/horse supply) and ask if they have used riding boots. They make great jedi boots.

    Yeah, my grandma is on O2. I totaly forgot that was laying across the floor when these were taken

    I've been trying to find black riding boots for months and I haven't found any locally.

    I am very happy to see myself evolving in talent. Maybe some day I can actualy have the full 89 suit I've been wanting.

    this has been fairly recent.... I think it was December 29th.

    Funny thing, I was given a lenght of that tubing to use on my predator or whatever else I could use it for. Fell in the floor at the hospital and my mom rescued it before the nurse tossed it.

    Not to rail off on the O2 topic, But by grandmother was on it as well. She had a tank of liquid O2 that she used to fill smaller bottles. When she was at home she would use the large tank, she would coil about 200 feet in here bedroom to let the temperature rise before it hit her. Anyway the point of this is. She would go through line like crazy and I got the old stuff. you would be suprised what an inventive 12 year old(at the time) can do with hundreds of feet of tubing.
    Drinking kool-aid from a hundred feet away is always a good time

    I only use eye-black for events. The stuff I haev wasn't cheap and I don't wnt to waste it just for suiting up for 5 mintues.


    Just for kicks, I made a couple of "honorary member" certificates for events where a celeb would be present or a kid's b-day party. Thought it'd be neat.
    Did one for JLA and Avengers:




    Sorry for the uber-large pics, but I wanted them to be hi-def when they're printed out.

    If anyone here wants, they're more than welcome to use them.

    and those certificates are really cool too.

    Well, there's really nowhere in my city that would be suitable except maybe this one parking garage downtown...... everything else is either restricted access or too close to gang territory.

    Re: Latest upgrades to my batsuit...

    That looks pretty cool! Good job on it! I'd love to do a Batman or Lantern costume, but I've got this little thing called a "gut" that doesn't agree with spandex.

    BTW, where'd you get those "Harness" boots? Those are sweet, and I'd love to get some for my Mando, wouldn't have to deal with laces any more.

    Re: Latest upgrades to my batsuit...

    Actually, I have a bit of a gut m'self. 5'8" and balancing between 187 and 198.

    I got the boots at Wal*mart in the men's shoe dept. Only $29, too

    Bit by bit I've been gather information for a Kyle Rayner GL..... should be quite interesting.

    Re: Latest upgrades to my batsuit...

    A guy on BOTB did that: He put Kevlar plates inside the armor's ab and pectoral sections. Also did a cowl with Kevlar and a working 2-way radio in the ear. Not to mention the gloved, EK-plated boots, and the thigh pads. Pretty cool, really. Go to the link in my sig and look for "Apocolypton." He's the functionality expert there.

    It's not as bad as you'd think. What's really scary is that he's working with some other members on a working spear/grapple gun with a winch. Thye plan on making the whole thing small enough to fit on a batsuit unnoticed but strong enough to lift a man in the ek-plated batsuit up a wall and lower him back down.

    Re: Latest upgrades to my batsuit...

    Jsut for you saying that... I actually know how to do it

    Well, it would be made out of Nerf foam, but it would work.

    Remember the little rockets that were air-launched when you squeezed a plastic ball?
    It could be modified and used on mando armor..... you'd have to resculpt the missle, tho

    Great ideas for indoor event, but really bad for outdoors when there are strong winds
