I made the Batman costume out of a black sweat shirt and pants. I ironed on the logo to the shirt. For the arms and legs I used soccer shin guards and for the spikes on the arms I made out of poster board and hot guled them to the shin guards. The belt I made out of poster board and wrapped in yellow duck tape and also added Velcro to the back to keep it in place. The cape pictured is the cape from last year, I used it as a Star Wars costume. The mask is a hard plastic mask with a Grimm Ripper mask under it.
