Batman Cosplay Sets World Record with 23 Gadgets!


Batman is known for his capacity to have a tool for every problem. That utility belt of his has almost become a Deus-Ex-Machina. Oh, Superman has gone rogue? Batman has some Kryptonite for that! Oh, the Joker poisoned everybody? That’s cool…Batman has this fast reacting aerosol that can be displaced across the world. Oh, the kids won’t get off their cell phones? That’s cool…Batman will just go and turn off the Wi-Fi. However, what if a Batman Cosplay actually attempted to load up on Bat-Gadgets?

Batman Cosplay
Have to start somewhere!

The creator, world class cosplayer 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.” Guess we all have something to work towards, eh?

Stephen Daultrey, Editor of the Guinness World Records 2017: Gamer’s Edition, added, “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.”
