Oh, the times they are a-changin’…

Batman costumes. A staple for conventions, late night taco bell runs, building forts in the woods and… 

Oh wait. I think I meant to say, “a staple for children’s halloween costumes.” 

Regardless of what, where, and when you are wearing it for, the Batman costume sure has come a long way. Which Batman are you?

Example 1 – Today. Or… Vinyl Padding Batman.

Nothing says “fear the night” like an oversized heavy vinyl mask. Pretty tight. 

Example 2 – 1990’s. Or… “Michael Keaton didn’t wear that!” Batman.

I might have made fun of this kid if I wasn’t absolutely positive that there’s pictures of me that are far more embarrassing. And I didn’t even get paid.

Example 3: 1960’s. Or… “These are definitely way better than what Adam West wore” Batman

For real – does Adam West order one of these? Can he afford to? Can he afford NOT to?

Example 4: Bootleg Batman. Or… Wow, that’s really bootleg. (Please note, the costume above could also carry the bootleg tag, considering it’s from Argentina and referred to as the “Bat Hero” costume.)

Wow. Just wow. I’m actually MORE appalled at the inverted Darth Vader costume. Which forevermore will be referred to in my head as the Varth Dader costume. Terrible! 

And YOU MUST accessorize that costume.

Am I the only one who finds the use of “ADULT” in regards to this belt either odd or gross?

And finally – Learn where that Batman costume came from. Bat-Dad!
