Yes Father... I Shall Become A Bat by Sonic1002 Yes Father... I Shall Become A Bat by Sonic1002
"Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight."
Batman at Necronomicon 2013. Batman

I've been watching This was a dream cosplay that took MONTHS of work and tons of money, but that was, in the end, TOTALLY worth it. The cowl, bat symbol, and gauntlets were all done entirely by me. The cowl is made out of latex and finished in Plastidip, from a sculpt and mold that I personally created; the bat symbol and gauntlets were foam sheets sprayed in Plastidip. The cape was sewn by my girlfriend from pleather (Who was a real trooper through this whole process).

My inspiration for this particular iteration of the costume comes from Batman's first appearance in Detective Comics #34 and also the use of lenses done in Brohawk's Batman artwork.   

This was the most fun I've had in a cosplay in a long time. I can't wait to tweak it (smooth the texture on the cowl and get a better clasp for the clasp at the neck for the cape) and bring it back out again!Devilish

That is actually EXACTLY what inspired me to try making the mask on my own as opposed to just buying one. My famous last words for this project: How hard could it possibly be?!

:lol: famous last words indeed! I think you may have really found your medium here (although you do fine work with drawings and manips)! I hope you'll be doing more stuff like this in the future.

Thank you! 
I actually did the mask myself. I did a mold of my head, then sculpted the cowl out, then took a mold of THAT, and cast it in latex.
