Oh the memories. That Ben Cooper was my first Batman costume. I’ve come a long way since then. 😁 This was taken Thursday night. I didn’t feel the suit was dark enough so I dyed it a little bit darker. I think I nailed it.
Looks absolutely fantastic!

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

Well I hope it's OK to provide these files to the group. If not, I hope someone lets me know and I'll delete the link and files. Anyway, here is the original Photoshop file, a TIF and a JPG. These are my own work, and anyone is welcome to use/modify/etc. Note that when I printed from Photoshop for m...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

I'd say you've got the label right - looks great! "REPELLENT" seems to be a bit smaller on the actual can but the larger font makes it easier to read from a distance. I was using a different photo. I agree, the one you posted has the word REPELLENT smaller with letter spacing. The one I used has al...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

OK I've adjusted the font size and letter spacing to better match the actual label. The best I could do was to measure relative height of the letters in the two words, and duplicate that ratio in the label. I then spaced the word "SHARK" so it appeared similar to how it appears relative to the width...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

I notice that the word "REPELLENT" should have been a smaller font size with more letterspacing. I'll improve that in the next iteration. Other Then That It looks Spot on. The font looks right and the white border too. How did you make the Label ? I have the cans but have not made the labels for th...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

WOW! That looks great!! You and your Mother-in-law did a fantastic job. Love the gloves and don't worry about the cape so much - it looks really cool and has a good length to it. Adam wore his all arranged on the shoulders for the most part and you've accomplished that look here. If you are looking...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

OK no laughing!! Taking into considerations all of my limitations here in Bangkok, along with my late starting date, I'm happy with version 1. It gives me a target for next year. My mother in law sewed the cape and shorts. The shorts might have fit a 12 year old boy, so I had to take to a local seam...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

Here is a photo of the Shark Repellent for anyone who cares to see. I will do some paint touchups tomorrow. I notice that the word "REPELLENT" should have been a smaller font size with more letterspacing. I'll improve that in the next iteration. This will do for now. I'll also look for an aerosol ca...

Love the belt!
Thanks. I can actually get that here in Bangkok, I just found it online. I can't get it in time, but will order some so I'll have it for upgrades.

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

I don't know what the aerosol can is made out of but it's not magnetic. So strong magnets are out.

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

Anyway that's where I was going: I think it'd keep the can on, but it with the can removed, the "trick" is revealed. One advantage would be that you could slide it on and off after the belt's on your waist. Otherwise the added weight on one side of the belt could make getting dressed a challenge. T...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

Maybe you could create a holder from nylon webbing like this example. It can loop over the belt if you want to remove it, and you can remove the can if you need to freshen up (or fight off sharks). That's an interesting idea. The only downside is blocking the label that says Shark Repellent. But po...

Re: First post - could use utility belt advice

Yes, but what if someone shows up in a shark costume? ;) I guess what I mean is, does the can need to work as a "prop" in itself and be removable from the belt, or would you be okay with leaving it permanently attached? Haha. I'm not planning to use the canister as a prop. It's meant to be permanen...
