Im making this my custom bat character silver age custom thread. Those who have made their own post here as well.
Please reframe from posting the tv show 1966 stuff and the movie versions this is for the comic book based silver age.

I decided to change my page and since Batwoman started this bug in me to do more Silver age figs im on a roll.

I have been toying with the idea of making her and I decided since i have left over fabric why not. Stay tuned Bat Fan's When I get home tonight my 1st WIP pics will be available tonight.

Im making it basically a yellow jumpsuit with a black bathing suit over it so we get the black shadow that is constant. I decided not to do legs or ams in black because in the comics the spots changed constantly.

So the body suit will be seen tonight. TTFN

Thanks captain ;

I had a bit of bad luck im afraid the yellow matte stretch vinyl stress tears super easy so that is out, the yellow ITY is too light. I have some Lt. weight milliskin im working with I had to make it opposit matter my making the highly glossy side to be on the inside and slightly matte side on outside of costume.

So far it's panning out i made the bottom to the jumpsuit and it fit's like she was born with it.

Since im using a kumik because it has the same bust shape like 50-60's kathy Kane Batwoman I have to mod the bootfeet used for triad toys because kumik ankle joints are fastened to model. for those who have kumik who want to learn trick let me know and i'll post pics. keep in mind this will make boots permantly attached to feet for good support.

I'll have them soon im waiting for my batteries to charge, damn digital cameras. anyways I have to redo sleeve i forgot how small the chest area is on kumik's, i was using a pattern i used for phicen&triad.

the mask came out ok, the baking time kinda warped alittle but fit's head. tomorrow night i should have yellow jumpsuit finished.
Im trying to juggle this with WGP customs.

Here is what i have right now

https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/931257_4812100750950_1687686264_n.jpg

This is a work in progress mask her left side mask is what I want but the right side had it's own plans in the oven :( So im going to make 3 more in hopes one will come out perfect.

(removed pic might be considered obsene so not taking chances)

jumpsuit is almost finished since this pic was taken, I'm sewing up last sleeve so i can make black swim suit to put over it.

Im going to trim hair up 1/2 inch and pin curl the flip up so she will have a better curly do

Im going back and forth with the red cape fabric I have 6 but i have to hunt down where i put them all... LOL. Thats what happens when you hord fabric...Unlike batman,Batwoman has a dinner type cape and knee length.
I finally found my deep red vinyl for her boots and gauntlet's.
I also finally tracked down the red pleather i used for my own batwoman purse.


I don't know if i want to use the black swimsuit because in proper lighting (overhead) it creats the shading)

https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/601804_4814688175634_887514806_n.jpg

Also this fabric is abit thick no matter how close i get to seams on sleeve their is an odd bulk. On an up note the gauntlets look nice i just sewed 1st one on her. Tomorrow i have to work on another clients stuff so im going to put her on hold for awhile.

I did find the microfiber im going to use for her cape it's awsome with good weight and i have just enough to make a cape. And im going to gut a bootfeet to make her boots I'll take pics to show everyone.

boot feet ankle post removal for kumik's and other non removing ankle post figures.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/960280_4814928421640_843084887_n.jpg

every bootfeet comes with two conection joints on side of bootfeet looks like tiny tabs pop them with a blade of some kind.

then cut of knob end of ball joint on boot feet and push this piece out of the bootfeet and discard.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/8802_4814928341638_131301271_n.jpg

now you have a hole were post was.

slip kumik figure ankle post into hole. you can do this with or without sole/heel attached.

now i accomplished this i have to make her boots upper to attach and finalize boots. I opted for spike heels.

If you cut barbara's hair make sure you get it really wet with cold water so you dont change style,also so you get the proper length so you get an even cut.

Info on synthetic hair used for action figures and Barbies


With 1/6 female hair you want to make sure you cut straight accross and always do it when it's wet. It has track holes set up much like a wig so cutting it straight helps so that it's even. If you want to curl hair you need to use hot water and ultra small curling rods. if you want to uncurl hair use boiling hot water to undo the style and anyproducts if any used to keep it curled. and comb out with a narrow toothed comb.

Saran Hair is a poly nylon hair and is heat set like a synthetic wig. and cold or cool water has no effect on a style so those are safe temps for conditioning and cleaning hair. Since it is a fabric based synth hair, fabric softener acts as hair conditioner. and dishwashing liquid is perfect for washing hair.

If your cutting bangs however you need to curl 1st then wet with cool water and cut to desired lenth. When it dries it will go back to style since cold water wont negate the style done 1st with boiling water.



I understand your fear because one cut can destroy the look very easy.

Groovy34
06-07-2013, 03:45 PM
if you want send head to me and i can cut and style her hair just send a pic. Sometimes toy companies do a wash and go attitude with hair. so it's usually only gets an uneven cut and then they boil set it it and ship it out. accept hot toys and sideshow I have noticed an attention to this detail.

Triad sadly those girls get no style at all worth mentioning and ttl had this issue with sharp angle uneven cuts.


Batwoman this head is TTL and the hair is uneven so to make her more respectable im going to rectify this lack in detail.

all that's left is cape,purse and boots so stay tuned and when i get some free time I'll finish Batwoman. I think i'll put a net in her purse andmaybe sculpt her a baterane and paint it red and yellow. someday down the road i'll see about making her knock out #5 bottle and bracelet cuffs.

The cross over conspiracy from Brave and Bold cartoon awakened my desire to make Batwoman. She is like jean harlow of the comic world some sass with class.

I had to discard the bootfeet, For some reason triad boots look huge on kumik bodies. So im using a barbie boot that ironically looks good on her. Im working on her purse and cape.

Hows it coming along?
How do you like the Kumik body? I was going to pick one up for a custom.

Groovy34
06-10-2013, 07:20 AM
kumik is a decent body it has pro's and con's like all bodies do.

pro's: slimmer build with more realistic bust in shape much like hot toys, neck fits most heads.Dollsfigure boots are premo for them because the calfs are small enough to wear the boots better. this figure comes with two set's of feet,2 pairs of hands, pair of black gloved hands. cost effective.

Con's weak wrist joints so easier to stick to one set of hands, ankle post is not removable but ironically most barbie boots look good with her frame you just dont use the feet. Sadly triad boots look huge on these figures so i don't recomending moding bootfeet to fit these. Some barbie boots are not to narrow so you could get away with it.

so if you have a figure that your only using one set of hands, want a figure with a body frame that matches a smaller bust then this is the figure for you.

So look for their progression soon on here.

For batgirl Im using a matte 4way stretch black vinyl which has a slight charcoal apperance and im going back and forth about making her boots and gauntlets of vinyl or faux suede because I like both i might make both versions and let people vote on which one is permenant.

For Riddler i have Screen printed the question markes onto the fabric to be sewn.

Nice Batwoman; I may do one in DC Direct 13" scale using Zatanna as the base.


This is the Riddler im aming to do.
http://batmanlegacy.webs.com/photos/VILLIANS/the%20riddler.jpg


I completed a DC Direct 13" Riddler custom a while back, using the Golden Age Green Lantern as a base, repainted the hair black, repainted a Robin mask purple, painted the GA GL belt purple, Made a pair of gauntlets, and made the costume from a piece of white lycra that I dyed a light shade of green. I made a pattern for the question marks and cut them out from a sheet of self adhesive fabric patch:

nice im going for an all over matte look for riddler. i have some purple faux suede tht i have left over from a hat i made for myself i'll need to color match the hands in a matte finish.


I did learn something if you use the wrong side of fabric as right side you loose alot of the licra look so the look is more subtle. nice trick with the patch fabric.

Makes me wonder why i went through the trouble of tileing all those question marks in illustrator and making it into a transfer to screen print it in printmaking class. but then again you cut out all of those ? marks that would drive me to drink.

Yeah the underside of most Lycra lacks the "shiny" finish and would work if you're going for a more muted look.
I had originally hoped to draw the ? marks on with a black fabric pen, but in experimenting with it there was too much bleed. Cutting them out one by one was a laborious process, one I don't want to repeat anytime soon!

Great job on Batwoman's handbag.

Thanks her utility purse was based on the silver age figure I just wanted something simple to hold stuff im going to later find for her. Im going to make a small bat button from sculpy to glue on top of flap.

I usually make purses for barbies which i line and everything. batwomans purse is lined with red peachskin. with enough room to fit her baterang and something else small.

I cut out the fabric for the riddler and im designing batgirls pattern, found my fabric choices for jumpsuit and im using non stretch fabric for cape because it has good flow. the wind catches it nicely.

Batwoman's costume was flashy but i imagined in the 50's it was kinda flashy. and her cape reminded me of a dinner cape that was probably cut up at bottom so it would be satin for a female. All the matte yellows i saw were kinda pale so i had no choice but to use leftovers from my costume.

batgirl and riddler will be matte im trying to make them more nutrual and not over the top.

Does anyone know how to degloss her hands from dcd or should i re-paint the triad hands yellow to make them matte.

Im slowly adding batman figs as I do them. batman is in storage in his box until I get pieces together to make another BM my bronze age one.I may make costme ga/sa catwoman to go with classic bm and im doing ba catwoman. so only need to change outfits to transition..

Joker is on pre-order SSC.

sa/ba penguin is on hold when I have more time and money to make body,mold,cast in resin. I already set aside his hands, umbrella and im having someone make his top hat. I need to find a round eyeglasses I can canobolize for a monocle and im going to sculpt a cig holder

My wish list is
BA Mr. Freeze from 80's in blue and white.
SA/BA Killer moth and batgirl
BA night wing
BA Mad Hatter
Scarecrow (creepy scary BA version w/o straw hair)
Catman cross between classic and modern (I like the costume but I want the CM on chest)
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy (Harley will be a mod from SSC and Ivy will be a phicen with BA costume (mostly sculpted swimsuit if I cant find good fabric).

But im taking my time on all of these because I really want these to look cool.

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080603182553/marvel_dc/images/1/14/Catman_0001.jpg

the finished one might look like a mix between two

Do you think it would be better to keep his classic logo and ditch the claw marks on chest decal because I think the CM looks cooler than the 4 scratch marks.

Does anyone know of a clay that will dry hard and stay on an already made sculpt so I can make the ears on a batman sculpt and just let it dry and get it painted. or is epoxy it?

07-13-2013, 09:36 PM
Groovy, I was inspired by your Batwoman custom into making one of my own in DC Direct 13" scale. I used a Zatanna head with the hair modified a bit, a Power Girl body, I heavily modified a pair of Zatanna boots, and modified a Batgirl belt purse into a ultility purse.
The costume I made from yellow lycra; I decided to go with an all yellow suit (like the DCD 6" action figure), rather than give her a black corset, as I always felt that part was depicted black in the comics due to shadowing. If I could have found another shade of yellow lycra, I would have made the upper part and sleeves a lighter yellow and the corset & lower part darker; I did use the less shiny side of the material for the upper part and the shiny part for the bottom, but you can't really tell any difference. The mask was cut from pleather and painted, the cape is scalloped but needs ironed so that it hangs better:

My camera flash really washes the brightness out of the yellow lycra; in reality, it is very close to the shade of yellow paint used on her belt.

I totally understand the brightness factor on the costume. I had to use night setting on mine to get some of the flash gone. the mask when I used vinyl was a btch to do. if it was cut closer to center it might look more like it and wont pull so much. I learned that 1st time. I decided to sculpt the final because it gave me to much problems. As far as purse it needs to sit right next to belt because in comic it actually was attached at belt and the straps acted as bolas to catch crooks. other than that your's look like the earth 2 Batwoman from batman family with the cuff boots instead of wing-tips boots.

I really like the belt hw much would you charge for one.

im also redoing her costume I found a way to eliminate some un-nessasary seams

Altogether you did an awesome job on Batwoman

Batgirl was done with DCD batman cape, Batgirl head, gauntlet fins, and belt I shortened to sit on hips of a triad female. I used large bust to offset huge head. triad bootfeet and boots made by me, also made elbow length gauntlets,black jumpsuit and big batgirl symbol on chest. This was the fastest bash ever only took on whole day.

revamped riddler with smaller mask(im still scraping off excess so if you see white that's why. and shortened gauntlets

Nice work on these!

I am in mid-'66 Batman cusomization. I am converting a Ken batman to a more "hero-esque" state.
A batmobile and copter are planned [the car is started], Joker, King Tut, Catwoman, False Face and Riddler are WIP.
Have you considered craft foam for the masks? It may be easier to cut and adhere to the heads. I am not at that stage just yet, but that is what I was planning on trying.

Hi guys just wanted to share with you my custom scarecrow. I sculpted his skull,head and boots. tried to vary boots to look tattered. I sewn everything you see. The Scythe is by http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/member.php?2808-Agent47

Oh btw he is on the volks neo-go body i had to file away most of the neck to attach head so he didn't look even crazier than he did. he is super thin and gangly compared to the other figs. yes he is skinnier than sideshows joker even. he stands with hat at 13" tall without hat just shy of 12" (1/4" off to be exact)

I picked up the bruce body from Aci Thought it was fitting since it's batman's alter ego. I liked the latin body because it's actually tan. not that it matters.
I had it try the dc direct suit on it's alittle big and i don't care for the color or shimmer so I have the old medium charcoal spandex that is matte which means it will be sent to currose for a decal. so better work on sups jumpsuit as well. But needless to say i liked the way the body looked in a jumpsuit it's perfect for SA-BA slim build muscular batman. where as KP02 and HT20 is for superman. Plus it's butt looks good wearing the trunks, the KP bodies have no butt they look flabby and flat (yuck) most body builders that look like that have the HT bubble butt i think KP need to look at body builder pics better. Surprisingly the gap in crotch area just seams to work in bodies favor for jumpsuits. So he may be a superhero fav body. Im using it to take my DC direct batman into a 1/6th scale batman to be in scale with my other figs.

She will be coming to me soon to be worked on. I will possibly make some head-sculpts available to purchase. So inquire if interested. The gap in back if for the person interested to either sculpt hair on or add hair to her cowl. this sculpt could make her GA/Sa and her brief BA looks and can be used for jim balant catwoman or head filled for a catwoman with non revealed hair.

108166

those not familiar the golden age through early silver age she wore this costume with one slit op the side of her knee high dress and short dinner cape. and short cuff boots. sometimes her dress had gloves attached other times only a few fingers were intertwined with sleeve.
108167
108174
108176 This pic is inaccurate since one side of her dress was attached and only one slit was shown.

in the end of silver age through bronze age in her brief mysterious death in the late 80's
she donned a longer cape with knee high boots and split up both side seams of her dress sometimes artist gave her culottes.(not flattering but luckily only in one comic) some artist use to doing the classic threw on a belt and attaching cape but most of time she had a collar worn cape and no belt. as a departure from her SA look.

108170
108173


then a mini series called her sister's keeper she wore a jumpsuit for the 1st time and this was used in many versions of this look for the 90's through some current looks
108171

then Jim Ballent converged the two classic with jumpsuit in his awesome design that lasted for a good while. Sometimes artist would have her wearing magenta other times a rich purple
108172
108175
personally i am using this to make all 3 GA/Sa, BA and Jim Ballent

I am designing a pattern to make Helena Wayne The huntress. I found a head deciding body after i get head (skin tone) and figuring i will need to sculpt her crossbow in 2 parts, maybe sculpt her throwing daggers and will make buckle detachable since she uses it like a suriken.

her weapons will be painted gold or brass since I'm relaying comic into reality, I am keeping belt yellow and leg harness yellow but buckle will only be yellow on back oval and the logo is going to be brass metal
the color block swimsuit is the most challenging piece and may need to be done a few times to get it right. since it's a halter top swimsuit..

Nice work on all of your figures!

I don't think Robin's classic shorts are meant to imply fuzzy feathers. They are scales... kind of like the chain mail worn by medieval warriors (like Robin Hood which Robin the Boy Wonder is based on).

i was confronted by the same issue earlier this year when I designed and put together a full sized Robin costume for one of my student actors for the Batman (related) stage play we put together. The costume was meant to represent the classic Richard Grayson outfit from the comics, but with rich (leathery) textures and a dignified presentation that was clean and acceptable on stage for a serious drama with grim lighting.

For his shorts, I created a chain-mail pattern using die-cut circles (cut from green leather) attached to his trunks. It worked quite well.

For this scale, you may want to consider going with a fabric that has micro sequins embedded into it. I think it will give you the look to match the comic book costume.

The kind folks at Hobby Lobby (http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/seq-sequin-2mm-brite-green-720094/) have just the thing:

I know I'm not looked highly upon on freaks because I'm enthusiastic and try to help and give helpful hints. And I'm not the popular ones that are worship and adored. But I'm an adult and even though I'm suppose to be a doormat and not engage the bulling it's just I thought we were adults and not in high school

Every one here knows how foul this place is. And less constructive then it is vindictive. And more snarky than it's productive. Although I do get some good hints from a small group. Getting smaller each day. The popular ones who may have been seamed infallible and cronies to help attack someone who question them. It's just freaks has literally become a breeding ground for mean ness. There is a fine line between constructive and bully. Maybe that's why OSW is for adults and here is for HS mentality.

I've been reading your thread on OSW. It sounds like you've earned respect here from members who matter. That's what really counts.

There are trolls and cliques everywhere. You'll never avoid them.

I see the opposite all the time on OSW where members are too polite to say what they really think, and instead offer encouragement and an ego massage rather than a thoughtful critique, which I'm sure would be more beneficial to the creator. I've noticed it in particular with one kitbasher who's efforts are the kind of thing that only a proud parent might admire.

Not your creations though. I was only aware of it from reading your thread on OSW, and you really do put a lot of work in. I wouldn't know where to begin with tailoring!

Hopefully you'll stick it out here, since this forum is far busier, and generally more welcoming to non-military figures.

I talked to a few people who work for sideshow I'm going to stick around a little longer but won't engage the mean spirited people on here because they like to create a soap opera here to make themselves interesting.

As far as ivy's looks it was deliberate. I have a few comics with ivy in it from Bronze Age and she was no beauty. The appearance is comly not to be confused by homely. I tried pritty heads on the body and it lacked the strength a plant goddess has.

I was going with the green eyes the head had already and the fact ivy relyed on her ability to produce pheromones to draw men. She looks better in person.

Thanks I tried to be true to comics. But gave him my own spin. I sculpted head and bootfeet myself. He took 1 month of careful work to finish. Between sculpting to casting it then painting it to match collar. I texturized his fAce to be like burlap.

His tunic is in 2 parts and yes sleeves are separate. I peeled poly backing from pleather for a skin tight gauntlet. Found the right wax thread to use as rope. Agent made the awesome scythe he still has some available. And he is a friend on my profile if your interested in one

Thanks. I'm finally getting back to working on some more customs. I have been going super slow because I feel these figures need them. I try to rotate things. Tomorrow I'm getting started on Batwoman version 2. Without black swimsuit. I'm doing 2 Tone suits in yellow. I was going to make a batgirl headsculpt. But I think sideshow might make one since they habitually do a premium format 1st. Then again I may just do it anyway teehee.

I'm going to stay with freaks a little longer. I do have some pieces I may get done this year. I have just been like a squirrel and collecting parts and when I get stuff together finish them.

When things get hairy I'll walk away from freaks for awhile. Because the venom here is high. I understand constructive comments but things go to far here when 1 person starts a storm. I live by a 3 strike rule. I gave one person that when I 1st started then had to have him blocked. Everyone knows who that is because they witnessed it all go down. Some were even fanning his fire and it's those same people who periodically take jabs at me and you all know who you are.

Like Sara said to Nancy from "the Craft" I'll say to them " be-careful or it will end up like nam" when I was in HS the bullying got to point I tried to end myself. Now that I'm older I'm like a tiger and since I'm staying all I'm saying is bullies beware I will have you removed.

Sean asked me to make an interest threat for ivy not sure anyone would pay 125. For the poison ivy costume. I have lime green in mesh as we'll for stockings. I will have to have him maybe sculpt bootfeet since triad is going under and there getting hard to find. He wants to sculpt head.

Im building another ivy and when I do im selling the one you see but with this head. The pic is not great but when i curl hair and take pics in better lighting then you'll see her better. she will become model like which seems to be more appealing to people.

Very cool! Can't wait to see it finished. Your gonna have to do a Bat-Girl next. The yellow 2 tone looks great. To me the black was always shadow effect. especially in the old comics.

which is why i took pic at this angle to get shadow effect. i think batwoman had overhead lighting

I will be making her but much latter. I need to find a head and body. Blonds, good blonds are hard to find. and she had doll like eyes so looking for big blue eyes i may take some time and look for her but she wont be until 2015 at least.

Had to re-work batwoman since bust was too small, this one is coming along faster and looks better too.Had just enough yellow fabric to make this one.

this may sound terrible but i am buying the 1960's burt ward robin and painting his hair black and making cape longer and resculpting boots so there like the teen wonder pre teen titans. i might also make his briefs out of pane since the velvet looks Little like feathers, see wip poison ivy's suit

That Robin right there is walking like a boss. Dude grew up and must have been getting major trim to be prancing around like that. I envy him- green briefs and all.

The villains on the other hand I have just so many more customs such as.
Ra's al Ghul , Talia al Ghul, BA Mr. Freeze,Gentleman Ghost, Two-Face,and The Penguin

Since Catwoman is an anti hero but in Bronze Age she was more hero I may include her with batman family shot.

eventually yes, I am still looking for the perfect middle eastern sculpt for her, I may have to settle with one close. Dc comics made her look slightly Asian. So I am not entirely sure where to go for her head as of yet but i do have her jumpsuit fabric in hand. I have one head in mind So i will move forward when i got head and body in hand. She wears a dark purple nearly black jumpsuit, the animated series ended up giving her a black one because you can only know it's purple by it's highlights in comics.

Skin tone took awhile to get formula to match phicen tan
Purple paint is nauseating to blend. in natural lighting it doesn't match fabric but with flash it's dead on. you'll see when im finished.
