If you’ve been watching the trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and found yourself in love with Batman’s new armored, glowing- eyed suit, you’re in luck.  

With the help of YouTube channel CineFix, you don’t need the resources of Wayne Enterprises to build your own bat suit. The latest installment of Homemade How-To walks you through the steps for making Batman’s mecha-style suit. The team uses items that you might already have around the house, and gets creative with cardboard, glue, gaff tape, spray paint, a trash can, and other easy-to-find materials. The templates for the project are available on their Facebook page. 

The end result looks impressive, considering the materials used. 

After following the video, you’ll have the perfect suit for roaming the streets of Gotham or Metropolis to find out who exactly bleeds.
