“I’m not wearing hockey pads!” – The Dark Knight 2008
Every adventure has to have a beginning. This costume was my very first attempt at building a custom Bat-suit. The entire costume was built with a cost-saving budget in mind with the exception of the cowl. The cowl served as the starting place for the majority of my attempts at Bat suits. I used this costume for roughly 6 months and sadly most of that time it stayed in the closet gathering dust. The cowl was purchased directly from the very talented ReevzFX (http://reevzfx.com/).
Unfortunately I don’t have a ton of pictures of this suit as it was a first run. I was still getting my feet wet and learning how to interact with people while wearing the iconic costume! Like I said in my “about me” page, I spent my first night out on the town in the suit on Halloween of 2010 with my loving and supportive Wife, Lora. We went to a local bar and eventually to a restaurant were we ended our evening.
