Dark Knight Wearable suit replica is complete!

Postby superDrool » Thu Oct 01, 2009 7:24 pm

It's finally complete and orders are being taken. Limited to a production of 1000 suits. SSH has the first look at the final product.

and here is the actual site with youtube video showcasing the suit and how to don it! The look is extremely acurate and very well done.

Hey
I saw this posted and I couldn't resist.

Neat, it has "I'm a douchebag" written all over it.


My opinion having worn the originals. The suit is VERY good but....it is NOT form-fitting enough. Just like the Wayne Cycle Jacket replica. But that's my opinion.

Yeah I read those comments myself.

It IS a fantastic Batman costume, a"real" world uniform.

I just can't see a biker wearing this and not be made fun of.

Maybe. I think one would still need the mask and cape to not be made fun of on Halloween.

It is certainly a very impressive technical achievement. But somehow it seems to me like they are offering an answer to a question no-one asked. No doubt it offers top-notch protection for serious riders and the price reflects this. Therein lies the problem: are there many people out there that are willing to shell out that amount of dough for a Halloween costume? :?

If that suit did not have the silly spikes at the under arm protectors it would be great for the sparing sessions with shinais we did in the historical european fencing club I was in. The modern sports equipment limited the movement to much and the gambesons we wore underneath where a mobile sauna.

To bad that thing is so damn expensive and not cosumiceable. :cry:

Yeah but these are about a grand. Whereas the custom designed/specifically tailored suit ran how much? LOL

If I was a huge Batman geek, I'd have one in my closet. But, I've already been laughed at by the gf for having a set of Stormtrooper armour in the closet. Course she stopped laughing when I sold the set for a huge profit. :lol:
Let's make something go BOOM!

As much as I love what David has done. I do think Bong's quote about the Suit just about sums it up. I have no doubt I will see people wearing this suit at the Cons(but not on a motorcycle). Probably more than one, both thinking they're original. That until they bump into each other. Then comes the awkward moment. Hmmm...maybe I should wear one of my "clean-pull" suits and show them up. But maybe that would be too Asshole-ish :lol:

What's 'clean-pull' mean? You mention jargon, I get curious :wink: .

Has anyone watched the youtube video with the 'how to don the suit' showcase? Really clever actually. I'm very impressed with the detailed work and all the effort that went into this thing. The carbon fiber sections bring the suit's design together as a seemingly functionable piece. For the fanboys out there with $1000 to burn, they're gonna be real upset when they figure out they need the cape + cowl and can't find one that's a matching quality. Suckers.

Hey Drool
Well... "Clean Pull" is what you call an Unused Molded Costume. One that was Pulled from the molds, set up for use, but NEVER used in the end. There were quite a few at the end of filming. The original costumes are quite durable.

Now with the UD Replicas. They need to make a version of the "Knight Armor Helmet". They would sell alot of that. And what the hell, make the "Fold-away Backpack".

While they're at it, the ensemble won't be complete without a tumbler and a bat-pod as well. I'll settle for the Lamborghini though. Way more subtle :wink:

Ah,
Thats until you drive one Bong. Then you will want a Tumbler instead. That vehicle is constructed of PURE Testosterone. The vehicle is a TRUE BEAST! I also got to drive the Lamborghini during filming. So I measured one against the other. The Lam is fun, but the Tumbler REALLY makes the head turn :lol:
