Ah, the internet world is agog with Batman, his armor and cosplayers right now, thanks to San Diego Comic Con and the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Today, we’ve got two awesome Batman cosplayers to show off.
First up, Dhareza posted his bat-armor over at Imgur. This was inspired by Batman’s armor from the upcoming movie. It was amade entirely out of a combination of LED lights, Worbla and eva foam by Dhareza, over the course of 2 months. The base of the costume used to be Batman Thrasher, which Dhareza built to compete at Denver Comic Con and won first place.
This costume is actually for sale, and anyone interested can contact Dhareza through Facebook.
Next up, we’ve got Julian Checkley, with an Arkham Origins Batman that he made himself. Made over the course of about a month, Kevin LeProp 3D printed the parts, then Checkley painted and pieced everything together in Galway, Ireland. He ALSO built a ridiculously dangerous, fireball-shooting gauntlet.
LittleLaura from Halifax, posted a dress on Craftster that she recently made from a repurposed Batman bed sheet.
She got the Batman sheet at a Salvation Army store. The top is made from a Little Atlas pattern and the skirt was made using an online circle skirt calculator at By Hand.
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!
In honour of The Dark Knight Rises being released on DVD, here are some of my favourite Batman items on Etsy!
