Here’s Some Costume Inspirations to Kick Off October
Straight of out Gotham City, or the internet anyway, we’ve found 10 of the best Batman cosplayers who bring new meaning to the saying “Always be yourself. Unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman.”
10. Miami & Carlos Blanchard as Batman and Catwoman
This husband and wife cosplay team did a fantastic job capturing the Batman and Catwoman dynamic.
Strap on your goggles, the DC Steampunk Cosplay group has re-imagined Batman and his entire rogue’s gallery with fantastic Victorian flair. The full cast includes Batman, Batgirl, Robin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Zatanna, Two-Face, the Riddler, Scarecrow, and many more from the DC Universe.
2. Julian Checkley and Order 66 Creatures and Effects
Cosplayer and master craftsman Julian Checkley’s Batman: Arkham Origins suit features armor made from 3D printed urethane, modeled straight from the digital game files, in order to replicate the real suit as closely as possible. Along with the 3D printed armor, they recreated some of Batman’s favorite gadgets, including an incredible working fireball gauntlet, folding Batarangs, as well as a wrist computer that displays a loop of the SONAR POV from the video game.
Oh, and did we mention the WORKING fireball gauntlet?
Ok they aren’t Batman, but this dynamic duo was too hard to pass up. Carrying a sign reading “The Wayne Family,” this cosplaying couple spent their time at a recent con scouting out fans dressed as Batman, in front of whom they would shout, “Son!” and fall to the floor, mimicking the traumatic death of Bruce Wayne’s parents.
