Batman fan becomes 'Lord Wayne' with antiquated armour

Dedicated Batman fan Carlos Blanchard commissioned craftsman Samuel Lee to build the impressive leather and metal outfit, which features the well-known batman-logo on the chest plate and the sword.

The suit set back Florida-native Blanchard around £5,000, though it was money spent for the 50-year-old as he wears it whenever he gets the chance.


“It has been a dream of mine to have a full suit of armour that Batman would have worn back in the Medieval Ages,” he admitted.

“Being a professional graphic designer, I decided to put pencil to paper and design my idea of what it would look like if I would have been Lord Wayne back in the 1400's.

“I wear it every chance I get, and scream out Samuel's name at every opportunity I get, as he deserves all the praise for making this unique piece of wearable art.”
