Mattel Releases Wearable Utility Belt And Batarang, Crimefighters No Longer Need Fear Embarrassing Pants Mishaps
By Chris Sims
One of the more unfortunate side effects of living in modern society is that we’re expected to wear pants whenever we’re in public. Seriously, they want you to do that every time you leave the house, even though that is clearly an unrealistic proposition for a society that has already perfected pajama technology. It’s an undeniable hassle, but this month, Mattel released something that helps make it a little more awesome: a recreation of the classic Batman ‘66 utility belt, complete with a folding Batarang.
It’s the latest entry in the tidal wave of merchandise that’s been hitting shelves in the truly wonderfulBatman TV series revival that we’ve been seeing over the past few months, and unless you’re willing to get creative with your “Surf’s Up” Batman action figure, it’s the first one you can actually wear. Check out a video of the belt in action below!

Adam West Batman T-Shirt, by Head Hunter, $24.99 [available in men’s sizes S-XL]
Adam West Batman Scoop Neck Dress, by Head Hunter, $45 [available in sizes S-L]

Speaking of Adam West, t-shirt designer Head Hunter immortalized the infamous bomb scene from Batman (1966) on a selection of apparel on Etsy. I finally purchased this t-shirt as a belated birthday present for myself, seeing that Adam West and I are birthday twins (give or take several decades). I plan on reconstructing the shirt into a dress, but for those of you who can’t be bothered to cut and sew, this graphic is also available in dress form (as seen above)!

Adam West, in a Batman sweater (or, as described by Chris Sims, “the greatest sweater of all time”)
Can somebody please knit me a sweater of an image of Adam West wearing a Batman sweater?

Boy Wonder, I Love You. So they just announced that Burt Ward will be at Big Apple Comic Con this year.
I wasn’t originally planning to drop by BACC this year, since it’s  the weekend before NYCC, but I think that I may have to attend now.
Now, why is this relevant to Fashion Tips From Comic Strips? My interest in Batman/comics and fashion did partially originate from early exposure to the 60’s Batman  TV show when I was a kid; to this day, the show continues to be a huge  inspiration in my life, both aesthetically and fashionably. While I’ve  always been in love with Dick Grayson/Robin, it was Burt Ward’s costume  in particular that served as my major reference for redesigning the  Robin costume into a mod 60’s Girl Wonder.  Whenever any comic/cartoon character is portrayed via live-action, it’s  easier to determine if their costume is actually feasible, in terms of  creation and function. While many people brush off the Batman show as  pure camp [which I won’t deny, but accept as a major part of its charm  and appeal], seeing my favorite heroes and villains virtually lifted  from comic pages was simply amazing. Their costumes were extravagant and  outrageous, and yet, the citizens of Gotham simply didn’t mind; teenage  girls swooned over Robin running around in his trunks and pixie boots,  and students barely blinked an eye when Catwoman attended classes in her  scintillating signature catsuit. Likewise, I absolutely adored the civilian fashion of that era - even the henchmen looked totally ginchy! Perhaps I’ll do a mini-feature of my  favorite fashion moments from the show…
Anyway, this also means that on top of my NYCC plans, I’ll have to fix up my Robin costume,  finally get over my heart flutters and meet the original Boy Wonder…  and also tell Adam West that we’re birthday twins [give or take a few  decades]. And let me know if any of you guys are planning to go :D

On a side note, Fashion Tips From Comic Strips has  been stalling a bit, mostly due to the fact that I’m currently the  process of moving to our newly relocated Wayne Manor at the end of the  month. FTFCS will be back in full swing within the next week or so… so stay tuned - THE WORST IS YET TO COME!
