Alright, so I'm a freshman at the University of Iowa, and obviously Halloween is coming up. I have my Batman costume (that i made) from last year, but im kinda thinking its too intense for college parties.

 

On one hand, i dont want to look like im trying too hard you know? You dont want to be a try hard in college

 

On the other hand, everyone loves batman, who doesnt want to party with batman? It could be a lot of fun. 

 

Below is a pic, vote in the poll, i could use some opinions

If you're trying hard to not try hard you're still a try hard. Just wear the damn suit if that's what you want. If you didnt you probably wouldnt even have posted this, but it seems you're asking if you'll look like an idiot for wearing it. Just wear it, worst that happens is you go to your car to change into normal clothes. And maybe bring a girl to help...

Yeah I'd drape it around your neck and turn it into a fashionable, yet practical bat scarf.

anything that covers your face, or face paint, or anything like that stay away from.

its uncomfortable, never looks good, and gets in the way of making out. as an adult or college kid, your costume isn't about looking real, its about it being a punchline to a joke. a clever costume is far better then a realistic costume. also, plan phases into your costume. as in when you show up at the party, a couple of hours later, and then 2AM. you will get uncomfortable so plan how the costume will come off slowly and in pieces, while still being funny.

the key is funny. funny always works.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

Best advice ever.

 

Ditch the mask, ditch the cape, ditch the gloves, and even ditch the forearm guards if they're going to scratch exposed skin on other party-goers.  If it doesn't feel like Batman anymore after that, go as something else or call the costume something else.  Maybe just get yourself a set of batsuit ears on a headband, but you're going to want your face and hands uncovered.  Being removable quickly or in sections are a plus.
