Julian Checkley took his Batman Cosplay based on the Batman: Arkham Origins video game to another level, adding gadget after gadget until breaking the Guinness World Record for Functional Gadgets on a Cosplay Suit. Yes, apparently that is a Guinness record, but then again, there’s always been some out-there records including the Guinness World record for holding the most Guinness World Records (Ashrita Furman 120 records). This is a fantastic Batman Suit with 23 fully functional gadgets. Let’s take a look.
Checkley had this to say about the suit:
There were many long hours trying devising the gadgets and finding ways to store them on the suit. They are classic gadgets but also some are specific to Batman: Arkham Origins. I am immensely proud of my Guinness World Records title and to be part of the Gamer’s Edition is just the next level.
Stephen Daultrey, editor of the Guinness World Records 2017: Gamer’s Edition, had this to say about the record:
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.
