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!)
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
