This guy's Batman suit is so good it set a world record


"What possible Guinness World record can you give a Batman suit?"

Glad you asked: that would be 'Most functional gadgets on a cos-play suit', and you can wipe the smirk off your face because it's awesome

This incredible suit is the work of special effects expert Julian Checkley, a man we're going to attempt to befriend in an effort to get him to make us a Robin costume. His love of costume design began as a child, having created his own Darth Vader suit (d'aww), before progressing to apply his skills to the film industry. 

There's the full list of gadgets Checkley has secreted about his amazing build:

  • Fireball Shooter
  • Gauntlet Video Screens x 2 
  • Bat Tracking Beacon 
  • Bat Sign Projector 
  • Folding Batarang 
  • Grapnel Gun 
  • Cowl Respirator 
  • Pneumatic Tranquilliser Gun
  • Ultrasonic Anti Dog Device 
  • Bat Shuriken x 4 11. UV Lamp 
  • Ball Bearing Grenades x 2 
  • Gauntlet Flashlight 14. Medi-kit
  • Battery Pack
  • Laser Designator
  • Bat-cam
  • Strobe Stun Gun 
  • Gas Dispenser 
  • Smoke Bombs x 2 
  • The Bat Flask
  • Concealed Laryngeal Microphone
  • Two-way Radio

No, it doesn't have a portable iPhone charger, but it's not like you're going to take calls while you're bringing justice to the streets?
