Batman Costume

This is the actual suit worn by Michael Keaton in Tim Burton's Batman (1989). The costume influenced style worn by subsequent superheros and gives more menacing look than tights worn on small screen. It was molded foam latex and resprayed black each time it was worn to assure consistent appearance. One of just two surviving screen-used costumes, topped with only surviving Bat-headwear (crowl). It was fitted over silcone head taken from a Michael Keaton lifecast.
