Batman Suit – level 3

Is it a bird?

Is it a plane?

No, it’s, uh, Batman…

Or at least the most advanced Batman cosplay suit in the world. With 23 functioning gadgets and a shocking resemblance to the superhero himself, this Batman replica has won the Guinness World record for the most functional gadgets on a cosplay suit.

Created by special effects expert Julian Checkley, the suit contains devices like smoke bombs, a grapnel gun and bat tracker, and a UV lamp, just to name a few.

Remarkably, the costume was 3D printed and then moulded around Checkley physique and standing at 6'10’’ (208 cm) in the suit, he makes for quite an imposing figure.

Batman took some time out of his busy schedule fighting evil in Gotham City to receive the prestigious award which will feature in the new 2017 Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition.

“You are officially amazing.”

“Thank you, ma’am.”

Fully equipped and gadgeted-up, all this Batman needs now is his Robin.
