ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Ukranian steampunk/fetish leathercrafters Bob Basset have taken a crack at golden age comics with this 1920s "Batman" mask.
Batman mask as it could be in 1920
She already beat Batman to the leather mask idea
“Alfred” is the safety word.
No, I think that’s the word which alerts the “butler” to join in.
Let’s not ask what “Robin” stands for.
I sometimes think Cory must throw fantastic parties, I soon expect a full leather Mickey Mouse fetish mask with a Pluto Dog Collar and leash—just don’t eat the bananas.
“Just don’t eat the bananas.”
Right, just look at them.
errr…that’d be 1930s Batman. (Batman was created in 1939)
Must be Kaiser Bill’s Batman then.
Nein… Wilhelm II abdicated in 1918. It could be a Big Daddy mask for a re-imagining of Kick-Ass set during the Prohibition Era, which sounds pretty cool, now that I think about it.
