    Default Gaslight Batman Project

    I’m currently working on my first custom project, a Jawa, but have been pondering starting a Gaslight-ish Batman. A search of the forum doesn’t provide a lot of reference so I’m not sure it’s a popular concept but the Gotham by Gaslight story was always one of my favorite comics. I’ve been scouring the net and eBay looking for parts to start the project and found these boots(?) to kick off the project. Has anyone used them before…what are your thoughts on using them for a Gaslight Batman? I have a set on order and not a fan of the brown straps or the “X” across the front, so they’ll probably be re-painted and doctored up a bit. I also think they’d look better if the figure in the photo had pants on.

    Any other Gaslight Batman projects out there?

    I have these boots and although I still have to use them for anything, they look great in hand. You're giving me ideas!

    Yep...your figure provided some of the inspiration, it looks great! Can you tell me about the components that went into it? At first I thought about a belt that was a darker colored leather but yours kind of pays homage to the 1960s yellow utility belt.
