Re: my 89 batman teaser


Thank you, This picture looks like he is skinny, i really need to get a better camera. Im going to buff the mannequin a bit. Add the buckle, emblem, I also have a good friend of mine who is sculpting a silicone keaton face. Ive been working on this with him for about two months.

Is there any advice you can give me Batfanman?

Thanks

Re: my 89 batman teaser


the main thing i always notice with guys who attempt this suit is the area around the shoulders... Where the cowl meets the cape should look as if it is all attached... if one of the "fins" of the bottom of the cowl stick out, like on the left shoulder of yours, it looks like crap. Of course, i know you're in the early stages, so i'm sure with some work bulking up the mannequin and finding a good way to attach the cape securely to the underpart of the cowl (velcro works well), it will turn out great. Also, maybe find a way to give it a more menacing stance to display it with... oh my begins suit, i stuffed the insides of the upper arms to the point where they jut out a bit and makes it look like the arms are flexing in a "i'm ready to kick your a$$" sorta way :o) Good luck!!!

Re: my 89 batman teaser


Batfanman, you are absolutely correct. I did not attach the cowl yet nor the cape due to the sculpt being made. I read your comment and see what you mean. It needs to be aligned with everything

I notice the cowl (back area) sticks a bit behind the shoulders, which i never notice before thanks to your comments.

The arms, now that i attached everything im going to try to find a way to do what you said about buffing it up. I cannot see a clear image of your batman, only the avatar. if you have a pic to share please let me know, i would like to see it. Thanks for the advice, always grateful .

Sorry about the angle and the poor quality, but its the one that was immediately available... and i think it'll still give you the sense of what i mean about the arms.

That is absolutely stunning! It is one of the best Begins display I have seen. I understand now what you mean about the arms. I have some serious work to be done.

Thank you for your sharing your masterpiece

Re: my 89 batman teaser


thanks man, no problem! I had a real hard time deciding which suit i wanted to have.. the begins or the '89.. it was almost a flip of the coin, i love them both equally. Can't wait to see how it all comes together for ya!

Re: my 89 batman teaser


That looks awesome so far.I am about 50% done with my 89 suit as well.I as well want to bulk the waist area on mine but can't seem to find a good method.I tried wrapping saran wrap around but the creases of the wrap show in the lycraand takes the smooth away.What method are you using?

Re: my 89 batman teaser


try using old discarded towels and shape the waist with that and just tape or pin the towels at the back. or thick garbage bags
