This homemade costume for boys entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Rayhan, the 'Batman' costume creator:
My son likes super heroes and wanted a Batman costume. Halloween was the right time to make it.
1 Black long sleeve shirt
1 Black sweat pants
1 pair of black gloves
2 yards of black cloth for cape
10 foam sheets.
black paint, brush to paint
1 batman mask
1 batman belt
First I found the pic of the batman which i wanted to make. Then draw and cut the chest, abs, muscles, thighs, shins on a piece of paper. The trace and cut it out on foam. Paint the black. Paint about 2 to 3 coats. let one coat dry before painting the second coat. Glue the foam pieces on the shirt and pant. Slide a newspaper in between the shirt and the pant so that the glue does not stick on the clothes.
Put velcro on the guts and the shins.
I measured the width and the length of the cape leaving 1" for stitching. Cut the shape if the wings. I took one long thick stick and cut in half. Then i make slits on the two ends of the wings and slide the stick in it. Cut a long string for the neck and stitched along the shoulders.
The cape and the foam body was a hit. My was very happy wearing the costume that made me happy too.
