A Wearable Batman Cowl and Cape Made from Bark

When you make a costume, you have a practically endless amount of choices when it comes to materials. We talk about them all the time — Worbla, foam, fabric. I don’t think we’ve touched on the usefulness of organic materials much though. They might not be a long term cosplay solution, but supplies harvested from nature are an option. Artist Christophe Guinet has used botanicals in several of his projects, including a wearable Batman cowl and cape.

The bark and moss look for the Dark Knight makes the vigilante look a lot like Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. It makes me want an art exhibit featuring out of the ordinary takes on Batman’s look. Guinet worked with Warner Bros. France and Splendens and according to Design Boom, he:

“designed the iconic batman suit primarily out of tree bark, vegetal moss, lichen and fungus. a foam mold of the batman suit and helmet has been carefully wrapped and covered in layers of tree bark, forming the suit’s distinctive pointed ears, opening for the mouth and nose, and defensive shoulder covering.’the bark of the tree is like the suit of the superheroes — a protective force,’ guinet says. ‘the foam strengthens the balance that exists between the symbiosis of nature and that of this mythical character.'”
