The Dark Knight has turned 75, and to celebrate DC Comics had a team of artists and celebrities paint over the classic black mask and cape at the Cape/Cowl/Create exhibition. The likes of Zack Snyder, Will Arnett, and Lego artist Nathan Sawaya used everything from melted neon plastic to black fur to make over the outfit, which was modeled on the one from the upcoming Arkham Knight game.
This cowl was created by Warner Brothers creative director Derek Deal. Personally, it’s my favorite out of the bunch of 17, but the aptly named tattoo artist Mr Cartoon and NYC artist ZSO came up with some really creative, original designs that could be used in a comic or a game very easily.
What’s better than tiny felt owls? Superhero owls. What could be better than that? Batman and Robin as superhero owls. Etsy seller Tiny Felts has owls in a variety of colors and designs and welcomes custom orders. Perhaps you’d like to request, a clown owl of crime to face off our dynamic duo. She also has options for customizing your owls. Super-owl, Spider-owl, Green Lant-owl, this could be a lot of fun.
This is a reader submission that needed to be shown off post haste! This crocheted Bane mask is made by the clearly talented Stitchfinder General.
The attention to detail on this is nothing short of incredible. Seriously, look at that thing! I can only imagine how long this must take to make. It’s worth it though!

Have you ever wanted to make an adorable mini papercraft version of…anything cool? Ever? Well, Gus Santome probably has you covered. She-Ra? Check! Batman? Yep! R2-D2? Indubitably!
Seriously, these are crazy cute. I haven’t tried to make any yet (partially because I already have too many knickknacks and gewgaws), but I could use a bit more flair on my desk at work…. Project!
What can I say? Heath Ledger won my heart very early on in his acting career in the U.S. From “A Knight’s Tale” through to “The Dark Knight”, his name pulled me to the theaters time and again.
I found this afghan on Craftster and my heart just melted. Not only is it is very well done and a labor of love, but it’s a great tribute to his life, his work, and his impact on our movie industry.
Pesky Pixie! Thank you for creating this beautiful afghan!
