Bat Cuffs Build

Post by BatBob » Sat Sep 08, 2012 10:09 am

Well, a few weeks ago, I decided to attempt a set of Bat-Cuffs.

I am using the spare Lexan Plexi from my Bat-Shield. To nake them less flimsy, I am doubling the plexi up which will also enable me to make the attachment a bit smoother.

Here are some pics of the progress...

I'm gonna get the chain this week and start priming and painting after a good sanding. ;)

Well, I finally got to work some more on my cuffs. Shape is done and it all lines up nicely.
I bought some chain at Home Depot and put some primer on the pieces to get a better idea of how they black will look.

I am pretty happy so far. I hope to have them done for New York Comic Con. It will make for some funny pics for folks. :D

weekends New York Comic Con. :D

I wasn't 100% sure of a few things, so I used my best judgement.
I think I only found 1 pic from the series of batman holding them and it was fuzzy. lol

Wow! That will save me money on getting a pair of it! Let alone finding a decent one lol. This DIY project seems to look pretty spot on! Thanks for the idea! Anyway, do you have any pics of your bat-shield or the post on how you have made it?

Thanks folks. It's always tough making something for the first time. I am trying to decide what to tackle next... any ideas? :-)
