Re: IT...COULD.....WORK!

To say I'm sneaking up on this is an understatement!!! LOL! Found a stock aluminum angle that looks to be the right scale. By cutting up another pie tin, I doubled the thickness where it meets the lamp which seems to give it just the right amount of reveal at the top... Not enough time to play with ...

Re: IT...COULD.....WORK!

Yep, the 20th C. Fox effects group made this in my opinion and the antlers or the replicas Barris build would have had dead on replicas. The more you look at this the more hand made it becomes. I used to think it was some sort of filter basket with stuff tacked on but now I think it was simply scrat...

Re: IT...COULD.....WORK!

Most report everything was aluminum.

Here's a shot of it as I ponder the angles and sizes of the other components...

I would be lost without masking tape and popsicle sticks!

IT...COULD.....WORK!

Said in my best Gene Wilder, Young Frankenstein yell... LOL! The first step in hopefully building a Batmobile beacon cage. I had heard George Barris thought that the effects folks at 20th Century use a pie plate for the top of the beacon cage which is why it was not something George could reproduce ...

Dye another day

After years of dyeing fabric for leotards , Lynne and I are working with a fabric mill to produce our own custom Batsuit colored leotard fabric! It's a supplex type fabric that is soft, quick dry and breathable. The costume designer was quoted saying that he wanted the color to reflect how the color...

Re: Black Leather The Bat Cowl! What might have been!

Hey guys,

Here it is on another head form.
Just drop us a line if interested.

We thinned out a lot of listings when we came back into the shop because we were getting slammed with orders and didn't want to get behind. It's just two of us!

Re: Closing in on The Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl!!!

Thanks so much guys!!! The changes happened quickly while we were working on filling orders so there was no fanfare or even a moment of silence! I got a shot of Lynne's pattern table when she was working on it but that's about it. I just enjoy finding new yet familiar angles and shapes on this darn ...

Re: Closing in on The Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl!!!

It's been a wild ride hasn't it Scott!!! Thank you so much!!!! I was quoting you just today about enjoying the journey! It's now at a stage where I can leave it because "it is what it is" as Lynne and I say, and I don't need to interpret the shapes of it anymore. I'm just glad we still have the fabr...

Re: Closing in on The Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl!!!

Thanks Scott!!!

It's so weird to see these images on my computer...
It's like having a bunch of continuity shots from the show!

I threw a bit of foam in the ear hole to give that bump in the silhouette. It just sang!

Re: Closing in on The Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl!!!

HAHAHA! I'll get the listing up asap on Etsy!!!

Here's one I edited for a more old fashioned color TV look.
I think seeing it in bright digital color throws off some folks.

It's on an unpainted bust but it's all I have at the moment.

A day in the life of Octave Marbot!!! :)

Here's a first look of the artist proof of the Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl...

So grateful to "Alfred" for allowing Lynne and I the access to his cowl.

Re: Closing in on The Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl!!!

Starting to get exciting!!! I noticed that the fabric coming off the back of the cowl is falling in the same way as the print. It wants to swing to the right off the back which you can see if you follow the center seam. The fabric is coming off the left side of the shell remarkably like the print...
