Special effects art director Julian Checkley of the Order 66 Creatures and Effects studio in Galway, Ireland broke a world record for the most functional gadgets on a cosplay suit. Julian built an amazingly detailed Batman costume featuring 23 functioning gadgets.
Devices include 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.
