With July came the Batman: Arkham Knight DLC, Batgirl: A Matter of Family. While the DLC itself received mixed reviews, not many can contest that the pre Joker paralyzation Barbara Gray is not only a force to be reckoned with, but also shows off the curviest bat-suit in Bruce Wayne’s fall line.
While she’s absolutely awesome as Oracle, it’s no surprise that fans were excited about the chance to fight as Batgirl alongside her romantic counterpart, Robin, also known as Tim Drake. Hands at her hips, the cosplayer above stands proud and vigilant with the stern conviction of a woman who is willing to do whatever it takes to protect her city and the ones she holds dear.
Of course, there couldn’t be a Batman: Arkham Knight without the celebrated hero himself: Batman. At first glance, the image above almost appears to come straight out of a comic book. But that’s just a combination of photographic lighting ingenuity and cosplay creative genius.
Perhaps the color of the costume above is not the exact shade of Bruce Wayne’s costume in Batman: Arkham Knight, but minor differences forgiven, this is an astounding imitation. One of this cosplay’s most notable features is the metallic look to the re-enforced armor which allows Batman to deflect bullets off his body in-game at significantly reduced damage. Here, Batman stands menacing and ready to break the bones of those who dare lift their hands against Gotham’s innocents.
