Nightwing Cosplay Deserving of a Hero

nightwing-cosplay-1

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!)
