Re: First step in my Batman journey...

I just thought I would mention that I think you got an exceptionally nice Will cowl. Very "season 1".

Re: A Batkid from the beginning.

I was born in 1966. So my experience was syndication only but that was powerful enough. I can only imagine what it was like to experience Batmania directly. Lucky you! Very well written introduction.

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Speaking of tykes, my 4 year old daughter seems as excited as I am that I am getting a Batman costume from you Chuck. The boots from Duran have come in so far so we are running around the house with me in just my tights, the Mattel cowl and the boots and her with a sheet for a cape. My next project ...

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Thanks Hobbybuilder. Your avatar is a good argument for that. You and Robin look awesome! I also like RRR's avatar. I guess since the tights look different in all kinds of light and different tights with different dye jobs were used on the show, there's room for quite a bit of variation.

Thanks again. I think I am done getting my tights in a bunch over my tights :).

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Thanks Chuck. I had figured out already I was confused on my characterization of what was on your site and you've straightened me out on available fabrics as well. Also good to know the original were 100% nylon.

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

I may have to take back saying that the Williams use cotton/nylon. In the materials portion of their promo material for the tights it lists the materials as "nylon, cotton" but elsewhere they make clear they are using supplex. I still wonder if a cotton blend might be closer to screen accu...

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Thanks to all for your tips. I added a little purple and dyed a second time over my first dye job and I am reasonably pleased with the results. The tights really do look a different color depending on the light but now they are a little less intensely grey and have that slight purple cast I identify...

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Thanks. My suit is taking the color evenly as well. I wonder about a cotton blend though since it looks like the version Williamsstudios2 sells is cotton and nylon. I also suspect the original was at least partly cotton. I have done a second dye with just a little purple which I think turned out oka...

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Maybe I should have picked the "cotton/nylon" option and not the supplex option?

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

Thanks. They definitely have an even color. I also feel like the color has been settling down in the 24 hours since dying. It's very close to what's in my mind's eye but a little too blue and not enough purple. I almost wish the color were completely off because then I'd know I definitely need to do...

Re: Calling the Bat Phone for Tights Help!

This is driving me crazy because indoors without a flash, they actually photograph pretty well. From the indoors, non-flash photos I would say all I need is a little more purple. In daylight though you get more of what you see with the flash which is a heavy hit of blue turning the grey more slate.

Here is one indoors, no flash with a dark navy suit jacket for cape-like contrast
