New to the board...well not really


Hey guys, pretty much read threw all the pages in the main section and have been been a member for quit some time. I'm in the process of building an as screen accurate as I can afford 89' suit.
So fare I have a screen lineage 89 cowl and emblem
and also have dark wear 89 gloves threw pj wares.
 
Not sure if any one is still active on here as it seems not to be but hopefully I can document my build with some guidance from you guys.
Hope to hear from people

I usually check in once a month or so to see what's up. It'd be great if there was new activity here. I haven't done much with my Begins build in a while, but I do have a new display in the works.

It's always fun to see people's progress.

Re: New to the board...well not really


A number of things happened sort of at once - major life events for a couple of the main contributors combined with some hobby fatigue is maybe the best short summary.

Several of the guys who were known for excellent prop work had/chose to move on to other things in life.

Damn that stinks. I'm guessing inferno is it of the game as well? Just disappeared?

So I'm guessing it's useless to post here huh

Yeah - Leiter's belt is the only new thing to come out of here in several years. Inferno moved on after getting stuck in some bad circumstances I think - which is a shame - he helped a lot with people's suits including mine.

Re: New to the board...well not really


I am working on some new stuff Begins related myself but I doubt I will post too much over here.
It is a shame about the Jeff thing. Thats what kinda happens though. You have to have a certain mindset to want to do this ALL THE TIME. Self motivation is key and a real desire to advance the end product.
I don't personally know why Jeff left the hobby but he assembled so much so fast and that can be a motivation changer. He literally had everything from the 89-Begins and could have easily of done a TDK by now. Once you have it all though what else is there?
Just running pieces day in and day out? I have assembled everything I have and make pretty slowly. Mainly due to not wanting to have everything. This last year I have started to refine my technique and my finishes on stuff. This coming summer I will be redoing my entire Begins stuff from top to bottom. I have one more project to do as well and then we will see what happens.

Re: New to the board...well not really


Just figured I'd share it here invade some one stumbles apon it.

Ok so although I know all of you guys have seen this before,I figured id share my build process threw the [sign in to see URL] far I have collected a cowl from coofunkcurly, armor(chest, legs, knees, fore arms and calves) and belt from drftfan, gloves from dark wear with glove armor from pj wares and an emblem from [sign in to see URL] the way I have a liquid leather under suit from spandex man that I should be receiving this week .The only two things left are the cape and boots. For the cape I'm definitely going latex, most likely Paul's and for the boots I might just go ud replicas since they look so good and just are generally a convenient option. As for a little about me, I'm a 26 year old union electrician apprentice who just had always had a love for batman, costuming and the whole movie/comic/ costume prop scene. My goal is to have a pretty Damn accurate suit(since I can now finally done what afford it lol) to wear on Halloween and then just have on display with all my other stuff.
 Now enough with all the dialogue, on to the pictures.

First the cowl

That's it for now, will definitely update once the under suit comes and I start to mount although I'm thinking I might have to wait until I get the cape to do it? Any insight,food or any comments [sign in to see URL] fellas.
