About this Costume
Construction Details:
The suit itself is the famous UD Replicas Batsuit (http://udreplicas.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=9), with a cape commission by a gentleman in Canada who utilized similar material to the one featured in the film, and a cowl found on eBay.

The suit itself is technically motorcycle armor (hence the restrictive movement and steep price tag), which makes it functional to some degree.
Personal Thoughts:
Very rarely do I get to say I was doing a "dream costume", and this is one of those few exceptions.

While prohibitively expensive, it allowed me to achieve a cosplay I've wanted to do since I was a child, albeit updated for the modern era: movie Batman. (Since I knew I'd never be a good comic book Bruce Wayne.)

While I also have Dick Grayson Batman on standby for upcoming shoots, this photoshoot and costume was, like Hayate from DOA only weeks prior, a coming together of different elements of the last 12 years of my cosplay life to make long time dreams a reality.

I hope to do more cool stuff with the suit, but until then, I'm happy to be able to have had a memorable and fun photoshoot with friends old and new to celebrate this milestone. ^_^
