Batman cosplay suit sets new Guinness World Record
Created by special creature effects expert Julian Checkley, the ingenious gadgets are concealed and attached to the Batman suit. Devices include smoke bombs, a grapnel gun and ‘bat tracker’, UV lamp, NBC (nuclear, bacterial, chemical) bat respirator and even a bat sign projector for the night sky. A full list is available below.

The suit, which is based on that from the Batman: Arkham Origins videogame was 3D printed and then moulded and cast in a flexible urethane rubber. The parts were then trimmed, detailed and painted and then mounted on an specially designed undersuit. It was then applied to Julian Chekley’s bodycast, suitably weathered using dirty earthy colours and was then ready to fight crime on the streets of Gotham City.

When fully kitted out, Julian strikes an imposing figure, towering over 6”10’ (208cm), the bat ears make a difference! The 23 gadgets increased in complexity as his project progressed and Julian enlisted the help of an electrical engineer to create the most challenging gadget – the 2000watt EMP Stun Gun.
Julian Checkley said: “There were many long hours trying devising the gadgets and finding ways to store them on the suit. They are classic gadgets but also some are specific to Batman: Arkham Origins. I am immensely proud of my Guinness World Records title and to be part of the Gamer’s Edition is just the next level.”

1. Fireball Shooter
2. Gauntlet Video Screens x 2
3. Bat Tracking Beacon

5. Folding Batarang
