Batman Part 5: DIY Batman Mask

DIY Batman Mask This DIY Batman mask is made with some basic sewing and little pellon. It’s fairly quick and easy.

This honestly isn’t a great DIY batman mask, and I’ll probably replace it at some point in the future, but this is what I made for now, and I figured someone would be asking for a cowl tutorial if I didn’t post it, so here it is.

It’s easier than something like a pepakura construction, since it’s just a little sewing and hot-gluing, however, you lose a lot of the dimension to it too. But, if you’re just looking for something fairly easily that doesn’t take a lot of time, this one will work in a pinch. Also I didn’t make any boots, since the cousin I made this costume for has his own boots (hence my brother wearing clogs at the end of this).
