Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman; then, always be Batman. Words of wisdom from a popular Internet meme and the 1966 Batman Cowl lets you be the Caped Crusader, retro-style.
The Dark Knight has had various looks throughout the years, and collectibles like the Batman The Dark Knight 1:1 Scale Cowl Replica and the Batman and Robin Batman Life-Size Sonar Cowl Prop Replica let Bat-fans feel like they occasionally go out in the night as Gotham City’s protector, but these collectibles always have that one line that can rain on your parade – for display only; not to be worn.
However, you won’t find any such party-pooper line if you want to dress up as Adam West’s version of Batman. That’s right. It’s not just a pretty thing to look at; you can wear it, too.
The retro Cowl is covered in satin spandex, with Velcro straps on the front closure. It fits a head size of 23-1/2-inches but foam inserts allow it to be adjusted to fit various head sizes. The outside circumference of the cowl is 27 inches.
If you’re feeling really dedicated to the old-school Batman, you can get the Replica 66 Batman Cowl for $1,500 and feel like you’re in the company of TV royalty because even Adam West has one of these.
If you don’t have access to the Wayne fortune, you can still be quite happy with the 1966 Batman Cowl for $475 at WilliamsStudio2’s Etsy shop.
