Commissioner Gordon

There’s been a little Batman progress over the last few days. The impending PAX deadline (end of October) has brought these guys to the front of the queue. Where better to start than a BFF for Batman?

I went for a fairly standard look for Commissioner Gordon: charcoal suit, light blue shirt, blue tie and a brown overcoat.

The only thing I’d think I would change is to darken the glasses – they’re a bit like beacons at the moment. This should be too tough though – some dark pigment powder or a wash will tone it down.
