The Dark Knight rises...
Jackson Gordon isn't just another Batman fan who likes to play dress up.
This innovative industrial design student has gone the extra mile and built his very own Batsuit.
It is a fully body suit with padding and armor to really protect the person wearing it.
Here's a deconstructed look at the armored vest.
The entire look is complete with the iconic Batman mask/helmet.
Here's the early stages of the prototype Gordon created.
He later made the plastic mask using a silicon mold.
As important as it was to make it look as close to the real thing as possible, the designer had more ambitious plans.
After 2 months of work, Gordon built a 25-pound Batsuit that could actually withstand "punches, machetes and baseball bats."
And, of course, he's tested it all out.
