STEP 1: Assemble your Dark Knight-inspired armor
Every knight needs armor. Buy or find already-owned black clothing that can be the foundation of your Batman-inspired costume. A long-sleeve t-shirt or plain black sweatshirt and black jeans or black sweatpants can become your Batman-inspired uniform while keeping you warm at night.
STEP 3: Make your Batman-inspired mask
You can’t be a Batman-inspired detective without bat-like ears. Use the stencil in our re-Pin from Pinterest below to draw your mask on the black felt with the fabric marker. Once you cut out your bat-like headwear, you can use the black duct tape to attach it to your black safety helmet. Now you are ready to soar (safely) on your GOTRAX HOVERFLY Hoverboard like a bat in the night.
STEP 4: Complete your Batman-inspired costume
You’ll need your gold utility belt to be able to fight crime like Batman. This belt, as Batman fans know, holds everything from a camera and recorder to a supply of “Batarangs.” With your Batman-inspired utility belt, you can handle any crime-fighting scenario, or store a secret stash of Halloween candy.
Your bat wings, aka your black cape, will be essential for gliding on your GOTRAX HOVERFLY Hoverboard. Whether you are buying or using a black cape you already own, you can use your scissors to cut along the bottom of the cape to create points, making your cape look more like bat wings.
