Shawn, a.k.a. Dynamite Webber Cosplay, is known for his Nightwing costume. He does a spot on take on Dick Grayson that features multiple textures and armor. He recently shared a build post on Facebook and talks about getting a base zentai suit and having a friend sew it together. He says:
I knew I wanted to mimick the texture of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit. So I bought some puff paint (tulip brand, metallic black) and got to work painstakingly painting every little dash into my suit using reference photos from the batsuit and following the pattern already printed on the suit. While I was doing this I had the suit on my mannequin so the fabric was stretched. I would paint and good portion then use my heat gun to dry it some before moving on (keep that heat gun moving. Don’t burn your fabric!)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
