Detailed Batman Cowl Replica: Will the Real Adam West Please Stand up?
September 2nd, 2013
There’s cosplay and then there’s COSPLAY. If you’re serious about your costuming, and you’re into Batman, then you’ll want to start pinching your pennies now. Unless that is, you’re Bruce Wayne – then you can already afford to buy this stitch-perfect Batman cowl based on the one that Adam West wore in the 1960s TV series.
Each cowl is handmade by Williams Studio 2, and is as accurate as anything I’ve ever seen. It’s made from custom dyed Lastex, with a fiberglass shell, paint, foam, leather, and snaps to hold it in place. The pattern for this mask was made using a show-original cowl as a reference, and even the color of the eyebrow paint was Pantone-matched to the original.
Apparently, this thing is so perfect that Adam West himself owns one of these replicas. If you’d like one for yourself, you’re going to need to pony up $1,500(USD), but that’s chump change to Gotham’s number one billionaire, right? While you’re on a spending binge, why not grab an Adam West head to go with it?
