Hi everyone! I'm wondering how do you guys stick your batman emblem to you tights? When I tried mine with velcro, it pops out abit and it looks kind of weird especially from side view.... Also how high do you stick it? Thanks! :D :D

I don't have a batsuit... yet. But I have one of Chuck Williams' bat emblems, and it is self adhesive. Peel 'n stick.

In my case I have Chuck's handy dandy chest emblems with built in sticky stuff. In your case I would use double sided tape. Look at a PIC of Adam west to get an idea for placement.

Argh...... Mine came with the built in sticky stuff too! Foolish me; I stuck it to a piece of plastic cut-out then add velcros to it thinking that if I just stick directly, I won't be able to wash it. Apreciate your input:). I'll try re-stick it again.

they all come loose after a period of time.
What I have done is use carpet tape, there are 2 versions, indoor or outdoor.
The outdoor is water resistant and very adhesive but more than you need.Use the indoor style as you can easily reposition if needed.It is also very thin so if needed you can add another few layers before the emblem needs replaced.You will never get the old layer off.
Maybe there are other options such as fabric spray adhesive.

I'll try to look up for the tape in store. It is pretty essential for it to be water resistant and adhesive(more than the average double-sided tape!), as sweat may cause it to come off. Someday in the future I would get one from Chuck; That is if he still have it available! Hahah reckon it'll be far more better quality than what I have now, which it's a print out from this site and had a local shirt-printing-shop to make it "ACCURATE!!".......... Lol! Thanks for the tips by the way! :D

There is an adhesive that I have used on my son's Cub Scout uniform called Badge Magic. This stuff is SUPER Adhesive!! It would work for the emblem that has been attached to plastic, the only draw back is that it is very difficult to remove if you decide to take it off.

Another option, which is more versitle, would be Grafix Double Tack adhesive film. I use it a lot on my models and have used it on Halloween costumes. You would cut it to fit the emblem, peel and apply. I have not had any issues with removing it, but I always say you should test it first on either scrap cloth or maybe the inside back of the costume.

I'll look that up too! Thanks, you guys are so helpful! Lol In the mean time, I think I'll be putting hold on this project. Instead, I will try to save up for a will cowl! Hope that day will come sooner than planned! Haha.
