Included in this post are 2 favorite "costume photos" I have. One is a cute little girl who's mom made a wonderful Batgirl costume, it's awesome! I like the detailing....very nice. The other photo is the kid of a friend of mine. His name is Joe & he loves Batman. His mother told me that when he 1st got this costume that he practically lived in it. The 1st night he had it he slept in it....ha ha. The red electric car seen in the photo is his official Batmobile, ya gotta love that!
This weeks Bat-Wallpaper features photos from the new BATMAN BEGINS movie. I can't tell you how relieved I was that this was such a great movie, I mean, when I saw that early trailer & got a look at that dune-buggy Batmobile I was really worried. But I did think Christian Bale was a good choice & in the end the Batmobile was awesome! It kinda made sense that it would be sort-of "homemade" looking. So far they plan at least 2 more movies & the Joker is set for the next film. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they don't get a director obsessed with bat-nipples, hee hee.

Here are two examples of some really well-drawn & very cool artwork by Steve Stanley. The black & white picture is a pastel drawing of the characters from the Classic 1966 TV Show, very nice! My favorite is titled "Atomic Batteries To Power...". At first it appears to be a photograph but at closer inspection it's a drawing, WOW! Here's a link to his webpage, be sure to check it out : http://www.stanleyart.com/main_intro.html
We all remember being a little kid & tying a towel around our necks to be Batman, hee hee. So, about once a week I'll post a wacky picture found on the internet of somebody all dressed up. I think it's funny to see adults dressed up & the little kids are very sweet....future Batman Collectors!
I found these pictures about a week ago on the internet. Some guy in France built this Custom "Actual-Working, Real Car " Batmobile & it looks exactly like the Animated Series Cartoon Version....SWEET! I think he did an incredible job & the detailing is very very nice. I would love to drive this around on a Saturday night, all dressed up in a Batman costume, hee hee. My nephews ( ages 4 & 8 ) would totally freak-out! I wish I had a link to the actual webpage but all he had were these 3 pictures & really no other information. I'm curious if it's legal to drive & how much this thing actually cost!
In all my years of obsessively scouring eBay for rare & unusual Batman Items this has got to be it! This auction was a few months ago & I was very excited to find this piece & was watching it everyday. This is the Super Mega-Rare ELASTIC BATMAN by Mego! I think it started at $9.99, ha ha. It ended at $15,100!! Yes, you read that right, 15 Thousand 1 Hundred! Unfortunely it went a little bit outta my price range, hee hee.
