Video: The Ultimate Super Hero Costume!
The suit created by Checkley has an astonishing array of super-heroic actions like bat-cam, bat-flask, bat signal projector, bat-tracking tech and a whole bunch of other stuff. Its a long way from his very fist cosplay suit, a Darth Vader costume, when just seven years old.
According to Rolling Stone, the design includes:
"a fireball shooter, two gauntlet video screens, bat-tracking beacon, bat sign projector, folding batarang, cowl respirator, pneumatic tranquilizer gun, ultrasonic anti-dog device, four bat shuriken, UV lamp, two ball-bearing grenades, gauntlet flashlight, medi-kit, battery pack, laser designator, bat-cam, strobe stun gun, gas dispenser, two smoke bombs, bat flask, concealed laryngeal microphone and two-way radio."
He created this epic Batsuit that is based on Bruce Wayne's ensemble from the Batman: Arkham Origins video game. And it became the Guinness World Record holder for the very specific, pointless, and awesome category "most functional gadgets on a cosplay suit."
He now works in the film industry dabbling in special effects and model-making. Goes to prove that as comic book geeks go, the DC fanboys are the best.
