Batman has a keen mind, impressive skills and a sweet ride, but he’s nothing without his utility belt. OK, maybe not nothing, but his costume would look pretty weird without it.
In the latest episode of DIY Prop Shop, host Odin Abbott sets out to make a replica of the Dark Knight’s utility belt — but not just any one. No, this is the belt from the 1989 Tim Burton film. “I like that belt because it has more of a comic-book feel to it,” Abbott explains.
Abbott breaks down his entire process for vigilantes and cosplayers on a budget, starting with a simple web belt, and adding yellow craft foam with adhesive. The total cost? Just $9.
