The odds of running into a Batman cosplayer are quite high while you are attending a comic convention. A great amount of hard work is spent in manufacturing the costumes as exact as possible. The phrase “exact as possible” has been taken to a whole new level by Julian Checkley from Galway, Ireland.
As reported by Gizmodo, Julian is a film art director who is now a holder of the Guinness World Record for “Most functional gadgets in a cosplay suit.” In order to qualify for this specific record, “The gadgets must be integrated into the suit, and cannot be separated, carried gadgets,” as per Guinness. 23 various items have been able to fit by Julian into his Batsuit inspired by the video game Batman: Arkham Origins.
Video screen for the gauntlet was one of first items built by Julian for the costume. It is also a functional GPS that works in combination with “Bluetooth Tracking Devices” that magnetically stick to vehicles.
Gas dispenser is the favorite gadget of Julian in the suit. A burst of CO₂ gas is shot out by gauntlet through lifting his wrist up. However, this might be swapped with knockout gas if you happened to have the chemical prowess. Other gadgets consisted of a folding Batarang, flash pellets, a grapnel gun (even though it does shoot, it is not recommended to be tried to launch off buildings with it), and the trusty Bat-Flask, because his BatStress levels can get exceptionally high some nights.
Well, you must be familiar with that kid in class that would always screw up the bell curve? Without any doubt, Julian is that kid when it comes to cosplay. Check out the video below to get some more idea about the Batsuit:
