Batman is superhero derived from the DC world. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in the late 1930’s, batman is the caped crusader fighting crime in the dead of the night. Batman is the secret identity of Bruce Wayne, a billionaire who as a child watched his parents being murdered influences his decision to train and ultimately become the batman. The batman, unlike many other superheroes, doesn’t have any superpowers, instead, he uses his intelligence and his wealth to create gadgets that aid him in his crime fighting.
The batman costume that will be discussed in this article will be from the dark knight. For this costume, I have a nice surprise for those who want the most authentic batman costume available for sale. However because it is so authentic and the fact that it is custom made to order, the price tag might put some people off. I will include more affordable options as well below.
Full Custom made to order batman costume
This batman costume is truly unique. The detail work on this costume is incredible and it should be for the price. The armour is comprised of urethane a type of rubber. The seller provides an in-depth description of what included in this costume. I like many people can’t afford this batman costume but for the lucky few I am truly jealous. If you do purchase please inform of us in the comment below how you like/disliked about, we would love to know.
Cheaper alternative batman costume
This batman costume is still fairly expensive but a lot cheaper than the custom made version we discussed previously. The costume includes everything such as the belt, cape, moulded armour pieces, mask and gloves. A great costume my only gripe was that it was a bit big but other than that I loved it.
Cheapest batman costume
This is the cheapest batman costume I found that is remotely any good. The costume is one piece so take that into consideration for bathroom breaks, however on amazon a reviewer said he managed to create an “access hole “ so he could to the bathroom without taking the costume off his name is Jall if you want to read more link above as well. This batman costume is simply you get what you pay for. The hood that comes with it is very bad so you will probably have to buy a mask separately.
Female batgirl costume
The batgirl costume is a much better costume in terms of quality when compared to the cheapest batman costumes above given the price of it. There are 7 pieces to this batgirl costume the one piece dress in which the cape comes already attached the arm pieces and the covers for the boots. The dress is quite short so keep that in mind when buying. I would suggest you read some of the reviews on amazon as there is some great information on the product there.
For the batman mask, I found on Etsy. the mask is made from high-quality latex that only ships in black (obviously). The mask extends right down, just below the clavicle.
The Batman armour, I found on Etsy. This is an incredibly detailed piece that covers the shoulders right down to the knees. Just like the Batman mask, it is made from latex facade. When you order please provide them with the correct measurements along with your height to ensure no delays occur and that it fits perfectly. I would also like to mention that I’ve had a look at the reviews and people seem very happy with their purchase.
The Batman cape, I came across on Etsy. Again like the pieces above this cape is made from latex facade. The seller does a great job in explaining the item much better than I can since I haven’t purchased it.
The Batman belt is available on Etsy. This belt does not function, the pouches don’t open. It serves to finish the look of the Batman costume. I tried to find a better batman belt but my research turned up nothing. If I do come across something though I will link it here
Batman boot covers
To finish off this costume batman costume will be the Batman boots found on Etsy. When I first saw this I actually thought it was a custom made shoe but intact its just latex spats (covers) that complement a black shoe. None the less these look great and do the job.
