I saw this on Ebay.
Does this belong to a board member?
Looks like some nice pieces:
Duran Boots
Gaspar Gloves
The cowl is based off a Hubie Kerns cowl.
Great price for a first suit! Wink

Wow,  if the Bat wasn't already getting a cowl and belt I would tell him,  But, this is too good,  See the sellar has 100% feedback,  maybe?

I emailed the seller for more cowl pictures. This was the email I got back.

Ebay:
I'll try to put some other pics of the cowl on the auction description. The Cowl have been made by Ken Davis, The Belt by Billy Lloyd (on Batman Message Boards is nick name is Ghostdog), The cape I don't know!?...But it is a great silk fabric, very closed to the rest Navy Blue color. It's very rare to find two different type of fabric with closer color than that.


Wow! Shocked The utility belt is made by our Ghostdog! Smiley

He also posted some more cowl pictures.

WoW. Great Find Adrian.
Just a silly question to all that own Batman tights, I see in the ebay picture that the tights look really wrinkled. Is it just a simple fix with an iron or is there a super difficult careful way to take care of them?

I have only worn tights twice but for the most part the wrinkles stretch out. I did buy a steamer but I haven't needed it yet.

Well Guys,
I bought that very suit today. I have to admit I have gone a bit collector crazy but HEY what the heck right? Let's see, all total that'll make four pairs of boots(one pair in the making from the accurate photos obtained here on this site), three cowls, two full suits. three belts(the one I just bought with that suit is functional)one belt I got off the bay is a CY, the other a Ghost dog/Batman Joe I had commissioned. I actually gave Evolution a try and bought a pair of gloves and a Bat emblem replacement,(just to test their workmanship), still waiting on those. Most likely know the outcome of that but...oh well like I said what the heck. I also found this woman in M.O., she makes a  cool patch/transfer type Bat emblem, it's got a very nice black satin bat and the correct "canary" type color. It falls in line with the later "iron on" effect that Adam was wearing in the second season shows. Although weather it was actually a transfer or not on the show I have no clue. Well that's my update, I know I had a thread on here about pics of all this stuff, please bear with me as Batman Joe and I are doing some costume tweaking and I promised I would work with him on the photos.  HOLY BATMANIA!!!
Stay tuned!
