Red Hood Cosplay

Hey 405th! While I have my 3D-printed Spartan build planned out, it's a little time-consuming and cost-prohibitive for a high schooler who doesn't have a job or very much free time at the moment. So, I'm putting that on hold until the summer and am currently planning a Red Hood cosplay! He's one of my favorite superhero and Batman characters, and the costume seems like something I could work on when I have only 30 extra minutes during the day.

Here's my reference (not sure of the artist):

And here's my plan:
EVA foam for the chest (template here)
3D printed helmet (probably going to use this file)
I have a perfect leather jacket already
Black tactical pants
Not sure where I'll find the holsters yet
3D printed weapons

I'm excited to try out building with foam, and I figured this might be a slightly easier first step into cosplay than a full 3D printed armor build. Don't worry, that'll still be coming, but this'll be something easier right now.
 
I also could theoretically do an "Under the Red Hood" version as well, I have a black jacket and the costume in the animated movie looks like he's wearing his gray shirt over armor, so I'd be able to switch out the two versions depending on what I'm feeling that day. I also might add a red hoodie beneath the jacket for a little extra flair, but I'm starting with the basics before I add anything else. Ordering the foam soon!
 
My 3D printer is having issues, but the college I go to has a free 3D printing service, and I just requested a helmet print from them. I'll be ordering the foam for the build soon as well!

Here's the plan for the Under the Red Hood version, jacket is from Alpha Industries if anyone is wondering. The next two things are of course the chest armor and the helmet, but I'm also looking for some inexpensive tactical pants, a belt, holsters, and I need to get the dual pistols 3D printed. Extras would be a red hoodie, a domino mask, and maybe his Scorpion-style mask. So far so good!

The gloves and kneepads...

and the pants.
Does anyone know how to remove the Mechanix logo from the gloves? It's not a major thing, but it's something that I'd notice a lot. The helmet is printing right now as well!
 
Been a bit since I posted the last update, but I have (one) holster, a belt, and a mask! I'm going to try to get the holster and mask painted this weekend. The foam should be here around the same time, and I honestly have no clue what the progress on the helmet is.

Unfortunate update: I went to check out the helmet at the college, but it was too small for my head and the print is too thin to create the thing where the helmet is put on in parts, with magnets holding it together. This puts the brakes on the cosplay until I can get it reprinted, which definitely won't be ten days from now for SummerCon. I'm still planning on going in a cosplay, which will be The Legion from Dead by Daylight, and I'm going to keep working on the Red Hood, maybe getting that done for Rose City Comic Con. Depends on if I'm able to travel for that or not. It's disappointing, but I'm excited to have a good base to continue working on the cosplay.

Oh no! Well, hopefully this is a short pause. It's been fun watching you build this version of Red Hood!
