A friend to the Bat-Blog, named Dave, sent us some pictures lately of a few different Batman Halloween Costumes he has had over the years. They span about 20-something years apart & are very interesting. For this post I thought I would just show the Joker ones & then do the others later. The 1st photo here must have been from last Halloween because he is the newer “Heath Ledger Joker” from The Dark Knight movie. The hair & make-up look really good & I bet he hit a ton of Thrift Stores until he found the perfect purple suit & vest! It all ties together nicely. Plus, Hey! Is that HELLBOY standing there too? In the next photo it looks like his wife got her “Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ” outfit on, it’s very cute from what I can see ( where’s Toto The Dog at? ). The other pictures are from the 1980’s. Back then, he was more of a “Comic Book Version” of The Joker. He also had great Joker Style going on then too with the purple clothes! I bet thrift stores never sell this kinda stuff all year long until Halloween time, ha ha! But all kidding aside, I wanna thank Dave for sending these totally wonderful pics. These Joker Costumes are all great. Now, I promise I will be posting the other ones soon, they’re great too! Remember: If any other Bat-Blog Readers wanna share there Batman-related Halloween Costume pics then please do!!
During the making of the1989 Batman movie, directed by Tim Burton, the Production Designer for the film was Anton Furst. He designed Sets, Custom Vehicles, & even the Movie Poster! Here is a photo of his original blueprint to the now famous Bat-Jet, also known as The Bat-Wing! I thought I would post it in case anyone wanted to build one ( ha ha, OK, a dumb joke…but be sure to click on the pic up above for a larger photo ). Actually I thought it was a pretty cool drawing. In fact, Warner Bros should make a poster of it for sale…people would go nuts! Remember when this vehicle saved Gotham City from those evil “Joker Gas” Balloon Floats? Good times, good times.
This video is about when Alicia Silverstone dropped by the MTV offices to hype her new diet book. When she was there a reporter asked her about any memories she has about making the 1997 “Batman and Robin” movie & being the “Batgirl” character. Her answers are sort of interesting. The reporter practically said the movie totally sucked & she didn’t defend it at all, ha ha!
OK, This week I thought I would post 2 Batman Wallpapers that celebrate great comic book artists. The 1st one ( Harley Quinn ) is done by our friend BroHawk & the 2nd background is by Classic Comic Book Artist Berni Wrightson. Yeah, I like these a lot!! If you have any suggestions for future wallpaper ideas then please let us know….we aim to please!
YES! The Bat-Blog just received a photo from our good friends Dallas & his wife. It shows what their Halloween costumes are going to be this year. She is Zatanna, The Magician & he will be Batman ( The Dark Knight movie version )!! The costumes here really look incredible! Thank you Dallas. Everybody please be sure to click on the photo for a larger, more sharp, version. Now Readers, you might remember this couple from last year when he was a different version of Batman ( Modern Comic Book ) & she was Catwoman ( the Jim Balent “Purple Cat-Suit” version ). Their costumes were great then & great now! I’m sure they will be a SMASH HIT at any party they go to!! We love to get photos like this at the Bat-Blog so if you have some of you in costume now, or some from the past, then please send them in. Our e-mail button is always at the top right-hand side of this blog!
Our buddy Kenneth sent us this extremely rare Vintage BBC British Television video showing Neil Innes as Batman doing a Batman-themed comedy skit. Andy Roberts is playing the guitar, dressed as Robin. Now, the name of the show was “Rutland Weekend Television” & was written by Eric Idle. I know everybody would recognize him as one of the main actors in the Monty Python & The Flying Circus TV comedy team …just do a quick search on the Internet & you’ll know who he is! In the mean time, enjoy this super-wacky crazy song called “Boring”. WARNING: You will not be able to get this song out of your head for the rest of the day, ha ha!

Shown here is a Batman & Joker comic strip found at a web comic page called AMAZING SUPERPOWERS ( Click on it for a larger, more readable, version ). Our friend Eben sent it to us & it’s pretty funny! In fact, when I went there to check it out I ended-up spending about 20-30 minutes just reading all the ones stored in the archives, ha ha! Thanks for sending the link Eben. Hey, if anybody else wants to check it out then just click HERE!
Here’s a nice mash-up parody video combining scenes from both The Dark Knight and the Blade movies with Christian Bale & Wesley Snipes. I gotta admit that the editing job on this is very decent. As both a Batman & Blade Vampire Fan it’s just kinda cool, & even pretty funny, check it out!

Alright, these photos were really fun to receive because for the 1st time I got to see what my friend Kevin looks like ( I’ve known him on the Internet for awhile but have never met him ) and I got to see his amazing Batman-themed Halloween Costume! He chose to be Harvey Dent / Two-Face & his make-up plus costume are totally awesome! I mean, extremely well done. He really looks like he has been burned. His business suit is perfect on one side & damaged on the other. Plus, the “Vote For Harvey Dent” Political Campaign Button is a nice touch…he even has a 2-sided Coin! Thank you Kevin for sending us these great pics. You should be very proud of your costume & I bet it will be a SMASH-HIT at any Halloween Party! I’m not dressing-up this year & I’m totally jealous, ha ha!
