Fanboys are the best. They go through great pains to pay tributes and homages to their heroes and this man has taken things to the next level. Everyone can be a Batman fan, but only the true fanboy dedicated time, effort and money to recreate the Batsuit. And it paid off.

Boasting a Bat Tracker, a Bat Sign Projector for the nighttime sky, smoke guns and an array of other devices, Irish special creature effects expert Julian Checkley designed a Batman costume fitted with 23 gadgets has earned a place in the Guinness World Records book.

The bulky black-caped suit created a record for "the most functional gadgets on a cosplay suit", according to Guinness World Records. The costume, which will feature in the "Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition 2017", is based on the suit the superhero wears in videogame Batman: Arkham Origins.

Checkley's design has 23 functional gadgets including a fireball shooter, two gauntlet video screens, a Bat-tracking beacon, a Bat sign projector, a folding Batarang, a cowl respirator, a pneumatic tranquilizer gun, an ultra sonic anti-dog device, four Bat shuriken, a UV lamp, two ball-bearing grenades, a gauntlet flashlight, a medi-kit, a battery pack, a laser designator, a Bat-cam, a strobe stun gun, a gas dispenser, two smoke bombs, a Bat flask, a concealed laryngeal microphone and a two-way radio.

Really, if this were available for buying, everyone would be like
