Re: New Look for the 66 Batman

Everybody will have their own source of inspiration for a "mechanical and advance" look for 66 Batman. Myself, that description makes me think of the famous Steranko Nick Fury cover with Nick in a space suit as the planet explodes beneath him. That, in turn, makes me think of Wally Wood's Spirit run...

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

Jeffrey, you had asked about the Jo Anne's fabric several posts back and I missed it (sorry). If you go to their website and use the product number in Jim's post without the first zero, it will take you to the fabric he recommended. I think it is called midevel blue and not navy blue.

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

Chuck, I will also say that although you are such a purist that you sound almost apologetic that you haven't invented time travel so that you can go back in time and bring enough original fabric back for every human on the planet, I really, really like the new fabric. I do think it's closer to the c...

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

Thanks Chuck! I love it! Will mine come with a Catwoman (he said sounding like a sexist pig). If not, can I at least get the tropical drink on the counter? It's pink milk right?

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

I should maybe mention that I am going to be a "modern fabric" Batman. So the gloves you are seeing are the Williams choice for the new modern stretch fabric. As far as I am aware, for us newbies, there isn't really a choice to use the original fabric from the show for anything except, perhaps the c...

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

Sure Jeffrey. I went with the long sleeve, crew neck leotard with back zipper in white supplex. I added a snap crotch and full front lining. I believe the model number is #305-805. I also ordered the ankle length legging in white supplex and added foot stirrups (others might add a full feet). The mo...

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

I also have ordered and dyed my tights from Onstage Dancewear and ordered and received my boots from Durans. Now I am waiting for my briefs, belt, cape and cowl from Chuck which should come in April.

Re: Newbie's Plan for a New 66 Batman Costume

I thought I would post some progress thus far. I ordered the fabric for my gloves from the Williams and had them send the material to Gaspar who made gloves from measurements I provided. Here are some photos of the finished gloves.

Re: How does it feel to wear the cowl?

This was a great idea for a thread. Thanks so much Wildheart. It is especially good for me as I am just starting down this road. My cowl is still being constructed and I probably have about a month until it comes. While waiting, I had the exact same question as you posed. I also wonder what venues (...

Re: Chest logo

Ha. Ha. Ha. I love that the above quote was (A) a response to my request for an answer from Batman to the Israeli Palestinian conflict, (B) an appropriate reference to what happens on this board and (C) an actual Batman movie quote. Mind blown.

Re: Chest logo

When you get "best scissors" recommendations, the depth of knowledge of this board begins to scare me a little :). If I asked the board what would be the most screen accurate response of Batman to the question of the Israeli Palestinian conflict, I think we might really be moving this board to a for...

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