Batman and Cosplay…two of my favourite things.


Italian Artist Denis Medri is a bit of a genius when it comes to reimagining the ‘Batverse’. He doesn’t just switch up the costume a bit, he switches up the era.

His drawings of Batman and co are lush, fluid pieces of art, that have a manly yet slightly romanticised edge. Now, in this particular set of artwork Medri reimagines, Batman in the 1950′s Rockabilly style era (you can see the full collection on his link below).


Disney the blue fairy

When the Blue Fairy is not chatting to a precocious cricket or turning wooden puppets into real boys, she is working her magic on Medri’s pictures and magicing up a ‘Rockabilly Batman’… Nicely done Blue Fairy, nicely done!


Jeans wearing, gum popping, leather clad Batman is beyond awesome and as the ultimate compliment to any artist some very cool dude by the Deviant Art username Joshspiderman238 took Medri’s artwork and cosplayed the heck out of it. I have to say this cosplay is pure class. I love it when a piece of artwork literally comes to life.
