My Batman actually had the stinky armpits. But I rolled on some deodorant and it smells much better. Here is the video if you guys missed it. Sorry about inflicting 34 minutes on you.

I didn't realize it was altered. Pretty good and easy fix though I think it looks a lot better. I may do the same and use black foam pads.



Think this would work?

it makes a world of difference...THANK YOU immortalblade !!
the only suggestion i could add is to use a black business card (if you can find one) it literally blends in with the cape behind it...almost impossible to tell it's there

it's not perfect...but it looks SO much better !!!!

i'l post some pics tomorrow (hopefully)
oh and btw...Bats looks excellent with my custom GL
I'm glad it works great for you. I may try a harder card stock like a business card like you did. I guess I'll get some more practice in for when the Superman PF arrive.
Is your custom GL the one that has him floating with the giant fist? I love that one.
