This is my entirely homemade 2009 Dark Knight Batman costume. The main materials used in the making of this costume are paper, fiberglass and aluminum.
The cowl is a paper base that is siliconed together with several layers of fiberglass resin to make the cowl hard. It is finished with bondo and a latex flat black paint. The gauntlets are made of fiberglass with the fins being made of aluminum and ground down to replicate the shape of the actual ones from the movie.(They are also razor sharp.)
The breastplate and shoulder-guards are made in the same manner as the cowl. The belt is made of two children's batman belts joined together that I purchased from a yard sale and painted the actual gold color used in the movie. I also made a folding aluminum batarang that is, unfortunately, not shown in the photo. There are also 8 small non-folding batarangs that attach to the belt along with the 1 large batarang.
There is a pair of sweatpants with the leg armor attached to them using silicon.(Armor is made in the same manner as the cowl with the addition of certain pieces being made of false leather.)
Boots are standard black steel-toe work boots with foam padding extensions(that go upwards to the knee)wrapped in leather. All the pieces are attached to a sport mesh. I wear an Under Armor shirt under the costume. Hope you enjoy.

My 2 year old son has become obsessed with Monster Jam trucks in the last few months and so I decided that for Halloween this year he should be his favorite Monster truck which is Batman.
To make the Homemade Batman Monster Truck Costume the following materials are needed: 1 -- Hot wheel monster truck for reference 1 --7 cubic foot freezer box 4 -- 5/16" cut washers 4 -- 3/8" push washers 1 -- 3/8" dowel rod 1 -- black A-shirt 6 -- paint stirring sticks utility knife chalk board paint black and silver duct tape logos downloaded from the internet
I measured the hot wheel monster truck, then scaled the size to fit onto the side of the freezer box. After hand drawing the shape on the sides, they were cut out with the utility knife. Once all pieces were cut from the cardboard, they were painted with the chalkboard paint. Once the pieces were painted, they were taped together. After taping, the dowel rod was cut to form the axles. Once the truck was constructed any areas that needed touch up paint were painted again (the chalkboard paint covers the silver duct tape really well). The A-shirt was split up the sides and taped into the center. Logos were printed and glued onto the sides.
The Batman monster truck is born.

Homemade Group Batman Villains Costumes
In July I got together 10 of my friends to portray different Batman villains. I am Two-Face but with me is Joker, Harley Quinn, Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow, Catwoman, Babydoll, Poison Ivy, Penguin. All Homemade Group Batman Villains Costumes were made by me and took me from July till mid-October to finish them all.
We dressed up in school on Oct. 29th, and had student and teachers vote for their favorite. First place went to Two-Face with 225 votes, second place went to Joker with 95 votes, and third place went to Harley Quinn with 80 votes. We all had a blast doing this for our fellow students and everybody did nothing but love and enjoy what we did for the community.
