Julian Checkley’s Batman Suit, based off the suit in Batman: Arkham Origins, has 23 function gadgets gracing its frame. Standing at 6’10 from tip of his bat ears to the bottom of his soles, the suit is made of urethane rubber. Featuring gadgets such as a Grapnel Gun, Bat Shurikens, Folding Batarang, and a Fireball Shooter, the complexity of each of the gadgets increased as the project continued. The most complex to create was the Strobe Stun Gun, in which Julian needed the help of an electrical engineer to pull it off.

Check out Julian Checkley’s interview with Guinness World Records below for all the details on his Batman Suit cosplay.
