If you have the top with the snap-crotch, you need to put on the bottoms first, much more comfortable that way.

Hmmmm, I always put the bottoms on first. Maybe I have been doing it wrong?

No, you're right. It's always bottoms first and then the tunic over that.

I should clarify my rationale for top first. I had a zipper installed on the tunic which then makes it un-necessary to undo/deal with the tunic snaps when going to the Bat-room. :)

Batjonsey36,Good news the Bat Tights fit they just need to be shorten in the sleeves and legs.I'm going to have snaps put in the crotch in the top and Velcro in the bottoms so that I have access to use the "Bat-Room"I'll post pictures after they get altered,more to come....

I just watched Scotts Capes,Snaps and You video and I ordered snaps but where(in inches)do they go on the shoulders,back,cape & cowl?After I get everything altered I'm going to have the snaps sewn on and I want to get them in the right spot.

I just wanted toi let evertyone know that the alterations to the Bat Tights and Cowl have begun.It will probably sometime next week before I post update pictures.I never thought that I'd actually have a 1966 Batman costume because I thought that I wasn't worthy of wearing it because of my disability and misshaped body I didn't believe that I wouldn't do it justice.Everybodys costume looks so great on them on the message board but I didn't think mine would look as good.Not being able to walk or stand,I wasn't sure if the cape would look right(and I'm still not sure).I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving,I just wanted to say from the previous word from my heart and that's Thanks for Giving-I really appreciate it.
