Film sculptor Julian Checkley from Ireland unveiled his latest project, a 3D-printed Batman costume. That’s right, it’s based on the outfit from Batman Arkham series, and he said: “We’ve always wanted to do a Batsuit and the Arkham Origins one is all beefed up and aggressive and gnarly looking. We had it 3D printed and casted and brought it back to Ireland to clean it up and try and take it to the next level.” He assembled the parts with the team at Order 66 Creatures and Effects studio.

Checkley adds: “That includes things like airbrushing, changing the rivets from moulded to real and making an undervest-type thing that’s tough, flexible, and lightweight. We mounted all the outer parts to it and also used it to anchor the cape. At first you feel like a bit of an idiot: you’re a 45-year-old guy dressed in a Batman suit. But you soon forget after a while, and I looked pretty intimidating. It’s the most comfortable, lightest, most flexible costume we’ve ever made. You could go and fight crime in it.”
