We all love a good home-made batsuit, but it feels like the talents of cosplayers have been improving exponentially over the last few years.
To celebrate Halloween, we’ve gathered some of our favourite real-world translations of the Batman Arkham batsuits.
Order66’s World Record breaker
This guy’s work on the Batman: Arkham Origins suit is just amazing. The record in question? The Most Functional Gadgets in a Cosplay Suit.
Those functional gadgets include:
– gauntlet mounted fireball shooter;
– multi-channel two-way radio;
– gauntlet video screen;
– respirator that fits into the cowl;
– a grapnel gun;
– smoke bombs;
– a magnetic bat-tracker;
– wrist-mounted gas dispenser;
– folding batarang;
– and a concealed throat microphone.
If all this isn’t enough for you, there’s an XE Suit in the works too.
Made through a combination of 3D printing, sanded car vinyl and fabric screen printing, this Arkham Knight batsuit is out of this world.
The Effects Lab’s Arkham City Suit
The Effects Lab forums suffered a cyberattack earlier this year, so they no longer have the original posts about this costume online, but you can read the content of those posts over at Comics Alliance.

We first reported on the Arkham Origins batsuit back in 2015 and since then Steve Dee & Crimson Coscrafts have made some huge strides. We still love the batsuit, but check out that Red Hood!
UD Replica’s Motorcycle Armour
We’ve looked at this Arkham Knight armour before, but had to bring it up with regards to this topic. It’s just begging for a cape and cowl.
