This homemade costume for men entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Levin, the 'Batman: Arkham Knight' costume creator:

This Batman costume is based off of the popular video game: Batman Arkham Knight V8.04 batsuit that Batman wears to fight crimes. The main goal of this project was to make this suit as accurate to the game as possible which included using materials such as carbon fiber vinyl and mesh materials to highlight key details of the suit. During the fall I educated myself on costume making by researching on YouTube of tutorials on how to make a costume, during this time I came across EVA foam, a material that could formed into to different shapes, which I used to form the gauntlets and shoulder pieces of the suit. The entire project took around five months to construct which included creating cardboard templates, sanding off edges of the EVA foam, and modifying a Rubies Batman cowl by adding mesh detailing to create an accurate representation of the cowl from the video game. The costume is comprised of mainly EVA foam for the chest, gauntlets, neck guards, shin guards, and shoe covers. Detail materials for the suit include: grey vinyl, carbon fiber vinyl, different variations of cloth from Joanns, mesh, elastic straps, velcro, parachute buckles, paper fasteners and a ton of hot glue. Painting materials used were: black Plasti Dip, black and dark grey Rust-Oleum gloss paint, and folk-art metallic acrylic paint. Estimated cost is about $100-$200.
