New to the Batcave


My name is Rodney and I am new to this board. I just started putting together a Batman costume and would like to do the Batman Begins version. I already have a Rubies Batman Begins cowl, a long flowing cape, boots and a black under suit. I still need to modify the cowl, purchase a belt, armor, gauntlets and gloves. Any help with advice or ideas for putting this costume together would be greatly appreciated. By the way I am not new to costuming. I am a retired member of the 501st Legion Imperial costuming group, and use to costume as Darth Vader from Revenge of the Sith. As a matter of fact, I am willing to trade my Vader chest box, belt, belt boxes, belt buckle, inner robe and shoulder armor for Batman costume parts to complete my Batman costume.

If you want to check me out on the 501st Boards, my TK ID number is 3184.

Thanks!

Re: New to the Batcave


welcome man!! you will find plenty of info here. there are a LOT of talented guys here who have done some pretty incredible stuff. poke around, see what you can find.

I for one (and i'm sure i'm not the only one) cringe at the word "rubies" LOL... if you're looking for functionality and minimal cost over accuracy, then its a good start, but there are some guys here, one of which is the administrator of this board, that have gotten their hands on some RD "real deal" stuff that will make you're bat costume look better than anyone elses around. Have fun and good luck!! :luck:

~Belt is from KBillan (now being made by Leiter22)
~boots are just cheap replicas off Ebay
~Cape is from Inkmonkey - this thing is huge and electrostatically flocked just like the movie emoticon
