Batman has to take the occasional day off, right? Once when that happened in the comics, Jean-Paul Valley stepped in to handle business. It didn’t go so well and he eventually became his own hero, Azrael. Instructables user SpicyPandaCreations has dreamed of making an Azrael costume for two years and finally finished it. SpicyPandaCreations chooses costumes based on the uniqueness of the character and the difficulty of this build, and Azrael fits the bill. The ensemble was made from EVA foam (which is probably not a surprise to you), including individual pieces for the gloves.
For the fingers, SpicyPandaCreations says:
1. Take your craft foam and start making your finger armor. You will want to make them a little loose because you will be wearing them over the gloves of a lycra body suit.
2. i first start by making the finger tips. you will have to slightly vary the sizes to fit your fingers such as your thumb and pinky. You are just making a “cone” shape with the foam, glue the seam, and then use your scissors to cut them at an angle. Repeat the process for each finger. (pic 1)
3. For each finger (minus the thumb), there are three sections. Make a ring with the craft foam and then cut it into shape. (pic 2)
4. You will want to make the underside of the rings a bit thinner so that you can close your hands. For the knuckle piece, i ended up adding an extra strip on the inside of the ring, and added a point to each (pic 3)
You can see a couple in progress pics below.
