Some Guy Makes A Batsuit Out Of Tree Bark


Artists make pretty things; we get to look at them, say “gee whiz, look at that”, and then once we’re done, we just move on. That’s what we’re expecting will happen when you read about French artist Christophe Guinet’s work here. It’s a Batman suit made from tree bark, and well, it looks pretty neat-o.

Together with Warner Bros. France and the Splendens Factory, the artist has designed the iconic batman suit primarily out of tree bark, vegetal moss, lichen and fungus. A foam mold of the batman suit and helmet has been carefully wrapped and covered in layers of tree bark, forming the suit’s distinctive pointed ears, opening for the mouth and nose, and defensive shoulder covering.

Why? Apparently it’s Christophe’s thing, to appropriate plant life and create familiar objects. We suppose that in art, that’s as good a reason as any.

What Your Office Chair Always Needed Was a Batman Cape


Look at that crappy office chair you’re sitting in right now. Just look at it. It’s… well, it’s just a chair, right? Haven’t you ever asked yourself “why isn’t this office chair a superhero chair?” You should have, friend, you should have. Because it turns out now it can be, thanks to the Batman Classic Chair Cape. This wonderful novelty accessory is being made by Entertainment Earth, and first sold at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon. They’re making 2,400 of the things, and if any are left after the show, they’ll sell them to any of you who pre-order one now. These capes are 24-inches long, and should fit just about any type of chair. And we imagine that if they’re successful enough, it’ll be just a matter of time until you find them in other superhero varieties. It’s a very reasonable $25.

This Case Turns Your iPhone 6 Into a Mini Batmobile

Case Batmobile

Your iPhone 6 is cool enough as it is. But you can make it even cooler by dressing it up in this Batmobile case by Bandai. As implied, the case looks like a miniature version of Batman’s ride. It doesn’t just protect your device from scratches and damage in case you drop it; it also comes equipped with LED lights that alert you to incoming calls or messages. It also uses your phone’s flashlight to “turn on” the Batmobile’s headlights and taillights.

A neat extra feature is the emission: just turn the switch to project Batman’s logo on the wall.

Batmobile Baby Stroller: For Your Little BatBaby

Batmobile baby stroller

He’s your little superhero, and nothing anyone says will change your mind. Of course we’re talking about none other than your offspring because yes, parents can be biased that way.

If you happen to be a creative dad who’s up for DIY projects that’ll make your kid grin from ear-to-ear, then you can take a page from Tim Baker’s book. Obviously being a pro prop designer for Hollywood means that he’s got skills most dads don’t, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build your own little Batmobile stroller (but you might need the help of your able-bodied friends and SO, too.)

Let Hilarity Ensue: Batman Slap Meme Dry Erase Board

Batman Slap Meme Dry Erase Board

To say that Bruce Wayne is tough is an understatement. He’s tough on his nemeses and perhaps equally tough on his sidekick Robin, who he teaches a lesson the hard way when the latter says or does something he shouldn’t have. One such instance has been turned into a meme, which shows Batman giving Robin a big ol’ slap.

And now you can make the duo say whatever you want them to say with this meme dry erase board. Come up with creative comebacks, silly dialogues, or random ramblings– it’s all up to you. The meme dry erase board is available for $21.46.

The Dark Knight Posts: USPS Releases Batman Stamps for 75th Anniversary

Batman Postage Stamps

The Dark Knight is everywhere, stopping the bad guys and keeping the peace in the city. After seventy-five years, he’s even helping get your mail delivered since you can find him in action on your envelope. Okay, so I’m not sure if anyone will actually use the stamps to mail out a letter since they’re collectibles, but Bruce Wayne is so awesome, he probably won’t mind being stuck in the mailroom if it’s for the good of mankind.

For Batman’s 75th anniversary, the US Postal Service has released commemorative stamps featuring none other than the Dark Knight. Each sheet of 20 stamps comes with eight different designs, from Batman in action to his signature poses.

Because You’re Super: Batmobile Slippers

Batmobile slippers


Real men wear pink…and plush slippers. Okay, so I made the last part up, but who can resist these adorkable Batmobile slippers? I’m sure even Christian Bale can’t. They’re fashioned after the Batmobile featured in the 1989 Batman movie. Granted, it’s not as sleek or tech-heavy as the Batmobiles of the recent past, but the Dark Knight’s 1989 ride is easily one of the most recognizable.

The best part? They do just what they promise to do: keep your feet warm and comfy. The Batmobile slippers are currently on sale and you can get your very own pair for just $16.
