Looking a little paunchy there, Steampunk Batman.
Must be all the fish ‘n chips in that Victorian diet of yours.

I’d hit it.
I don’t think he looks paunchy, looks pretty sexy to me. Maybe it just looks paunchy to you because the tight belt is over his loose fitting grey steam punk tunic thing. I think wearing the big cape over the already loose tunic thing is maybe too much layering, though I don’t know if it would feel like batman without the cape.
Yeah, it’s too bad he can’t fight crime with his sexy paunch.
I think this is an Elseworld’s costume. Batman by Gaslight.
I concur with Fury, it definitely looks inspired by Gotham by Gaslight, a Mike Mignola book from 89. It actually predated the Elseworlds stuff, but is usually considered the first one. The cape at least looks pretty dead on.
Batman in that book was definitely not what you would call ripped.
Yeah, that was me. I can assure you, I’m not overweight, but rather, as JoyfulAnn pointed out, I had on way too many layers. If I resurrect the costume this year, I plan to cut back on some of the fabric.
And yes Kateryna Fury–my inspiration was “Gotham by Gaslight.” You were right on the money.
VictorianBats, if I ever meet you in person I am going to either bite you (I do that, can’t explain it I just bite random batmen), kidnap you and store you with my other action figures, or just squee and insist on pictures.
