Begins cape/cowl rings: NEW PICS !!


I've got this over in the How'd they do it section, but thought I'd post it here too.

So here are some pics, inside and out. Sorry for the so-so quality. Didn't feel like messing w/ it too much.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. Had a bit of a time adhering the wool. Used some superglue gel in key spots, and probably will have to continue reinforcing places if they come loose.

is that a Dullam cowl? if so, is it urethane or foam? the edges are so smooth. Mine is a dullam urethane.. but the eyes, mouth and bottom were trimmed with scissors and looks jagged around those edges.

Yes....RD it is in fact. All the props go to Jeff. I just added a couple mods.

Jeff I didn't save your addy, but if you email it to me, I'd be happy to send you a handful.

If anyone wants to order any, the supplier is in canada. The site is www.theringlord.com and you want stainless steel rings, machine cut, size 16.3mm with wire diameter of 2.5mm

rings are still a little to big compared to the studio rings
but besides that it looks cool

maybe inlay the rang into the wood base, wipe it down with acid to help it darken and rust so it looks like its been in the cave for a while

finish on the cowl is killer

instead of the wool lining, try a nylon based liner
that's what they used on the studio pieces

Without having access to the original, or a source for the rings, I think its pretty darn close. You're right though, maybe a bit off.

I'd love to inlay the rang, but sadly, I don't have the woodworking tools or skills to do so.

I heard there was multiple materials inside the cowl. Nylon based material, like you said, in the head, and felt in the neck to stick to the velcro on the suit. I opted for the wool felt throughout. Natural fibers are easier to adhere supposedly than synthetic. I'd love to have it completely accurate, but until I can find a pic of the actual interior, this will need to do.

The cowl looks awesome,the rings and lining make a big diffrence even do its not seen when fully suited up.

I might see one of the three screen used foam latex cowls in person in late Oct that WB sold, that is if its there when i visit. If its possible i will measure the rings,take close up pics of them and the inside of the cowl.
