Whats so great about deciding to wear a Batman Halloween Costume to the next up and coming Halloween or fancy dress party. Well for starters there are so many variations of this super hero suit that you are really quite spoilt for choice.
The first shows of batman were aired in the 1960's, in these wonderful TV episodes Batman's costume was made up of an all in grey suit, a pair of trunks with Halloween Zentai suitsa half face mask and hip length cloak. It is a far cry from what was to come in the later movies. The suit changed dramatically, following many of the more recent comic strip batman. These later costumes depicted a dark and dangerous super hero and not the kapowww, Slam, crash, type found in the early TV series. The movie costumes seemed to give the suit a purpose, in the sense of armour and were made from some form of rubber. The newer suits also served the batman by creating a menacing fearsome figure, all draped in black.
The suits that were worn in the 1960's were made from fabric and as mentioned were a far cry from what we now see and expect of the famous costume. You could also consider the animated series costumes.
So which batman suit should you consider? To be honest I think it is down to the kind of reaction you are looking for. If you want people to gasp and are looking for the real deal, where authenticity is important then the batman Halloween costume you should go for is the later movie ones. These take on a more serious and realistic note and are great for Halloween since they do have a menacing presence about them, which is what Halloween is all about.
However, if you are looking for a more light hearted approach, then you can't go wrong with the good old 1960's design. These were never designed to be intimidating or realistic. They were light hearted since the TV show itself was a spoof of the character. Actually many purist's prefer the old suit for many reasons.
Which ever suit you choose you quite simply cannot go Halloween Zentai suitswrong with a batman Halloween costume, it is instantly recognisable and a clear favorite with many. The only thing that could really make it better would be someone togged up in Robin suit to match.
