Batman cosplay suit with 23 functioning gadgets breaks Guinness World Record

An incredible Batman outfit adorned with 23 functioning gadgets has earned its owner the world record for the Most functional gadgets on a cos-play suit.

The innovative creation appears in the new Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition 2017, out on 8 September.

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.

The suit, which is based on Bruce Wayne’s outfit 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, before being mounted on an specially designed undersuit.

It was then applied to Julian’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.

Speaking about his incredible creation, Julian says: ‘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.’

Stephen Daultrey, Editor of the Guinness World Records 2017: Gamer’s Edition, said: ‘This incredible cosplay suit is a great example of the eclectic records that appear in this year’s Gamer’s Edition 2017. The detail and imagination behind the gadgets take the meaning of cosplay to a whole new level.’
