There is the retro Batman fancy dress costume that is based on the popular television series from the 1960s or there is the more modern and up to date style called the Dark Knight Batman costume.
The Dark Knight Batman Costume for Boys
This particular fancy dress outfit is a very popular choice due to the huge success of the recent Batman movies starring Christian Bale as the main character.
In the films the outfit is much more sombre looking than the outfit from the old television series. Anyone who chooses this particular style for their fancy dress will definitely stand out in a crowd.
This costume features a black bodysuit with a chest armour which will make you look fearsome in front of any enemies. This is either made from a padded fabric or it is printed on the fabric like the example shown above.
This Batman costume also features the utility belt, a pair of gauntlets for the arms, the black cape and the head mask.
To complete this look it is a really good idea to use a little black make up around the eyes so that you can replicate the piercing eye stare that the Dark Knight gives when he stares down his foe.

The Yellow Utility Belt
The all important feature of this Batman costume is the bright yellow utility belt that holds everything that a superhero could possibly need when he has to go off and protect the people of Gotham City from the likes of The Joker, The Riddler, Two Face and all the other baddies.
The comic book hero and television character of Batman wore a very tight fitting outfit which showed off the definition of his chest and emphasised his pecks.
This feature has been incorporated into the costume so you can now purchase a Batman costume with a padded chest area. You can be proud off your fully defined muscles while keep danger at bay. There is an emblem of the Bat that is displayed in the centre of the Lycra top and it is made to colour co-ordinate with the yellow utility belt.
