Last week when I said that the Arkham games are the best Batman movies we’ll never see, I guess some other people felt the same way. The Effects Lab said exactly that when they decided to turn the Batman: Arkham City Batsuit into a real-life costume, and the result is the best Batman costume ever made. This is seriously better than any Batman suit in any of the movies, and puts most other cosplay suits to shame. How awesome would a Batman movie with this suit be? Here’s what they had to say about its creation:
All of us agreed that this was the best movie suit never done as well as the entire game being the film we all wanted to see. And there were so many aspects to it, including the illusive blue and gray of the new city suit, that we wanted to tackle. Some of the goals on the suit were that we wanted the pieces to be accurate like they walked right off the screen. The whole suit would need to be proportioned to the point that all the pieces worked together to complete the image of the character design. This was tricky due to the fact that no human being in the world is the shape of that guy. Especially the cowl. Also the cross texture of the entire suit must be included and it has to run synced up on all panels as the game suit does, so that all lines intersect at an X throughout the entire suit.
