Special creature effects expert Julian Checkley has earned a name in the Guinness book of world records by making this Arkham games-inspired batman suit with gadgets like smoke bombs, a grapnel gun and ‘bat tracker’, UV lamp, NBC (nuclear, bacterial, chemical) bat respirator and even a bat sign projector for the night sky.
All of these are functional and it is a dream come true for Julian. He had to enlist the help of an electrical engineer to create the most challenging gadget, which is the 2000watt EMP Stun Gun.
Needless to say, this is quite an achievement. Stephen Daultrey, Editor of the Guinness World Records 2017: Gamer’s Edition, has said that:
“This incredible cosplay suit is a great example of the eclectic records that appear in this year’s Gamer’s Edition 2017. The detail and imagination behind the gadgets take the meaning of cosplay to a whole new level.”
