Batman Shopping!

My pal Mike Drake has a pal named Mairin Prentiss and she took these pictures in NYC:


So awesome.

I've never been to New York, but I have to say that a city where a man can dress in a full Batman suit and go shopping without turning a single head...well, it's clearly the greatest place on Earth.

So, what do you think Batman was shopping for? A present for Superman, maybe?

I love the fact that the Bat Symbol is on his gloves as well, just in case you missed the shirt and the cowl.
This could very well be the actual Batman in the greatest disguise ever.

I love the fact that nobody seems fazed in the least. I can only assume that he's picking up diapers for Catwoman.

Awww...diapers. That's pretty cute. Or another giant teddy bear.

As a fellow costume geek who's ridden the NYC subway in full Princess Leia attire, I can vouch first-hand for the indifferent awesomeness of this town. XD

I live in a city so small that if someone walked around dressed in a Batman costume, he would be famous around town as "that guy who dresses like Batman." He would probably be on the front page of the local newspaper with a headline like "Super Shopping?" and could probably run for mayor under the banner "Batman for Mayor."

You must living in the greatest city on Earth if Batman could be mayor.

Well...I didn't say he'd win. He'd have to know how to play the fiddle to win. People love that shit here.

Batman can play the fiddle.

Batman for mayor.

You do realize, don't you, that in New York City our mayor is a millionaire philanthropist bachelor who controls a worldwide communications network using his own proprietary technology. He's also known for disappearing for long stretches of time during which no one knows where he is, much to the chagrin of the press corps. And he's made headlines for campaigning against guns, even running his own sting operation to try and stop illegal gun sales in another state to keep them from coming here.

I do not say our mayor is in fact Batman. I merely say I have no conclusive proof to the contrary.

With all the whackadoo things that happen in the older comics I'm not sure why the idea of Batman baking Superman a huge cake down in the Batcave and going so far as to have Clark Kent and Superman candles on it throws me for a loop but it really does.

rachelle said...

RAB: that is the greatest comment ever.

Heather: It throws me for a loop because it's the greatest thing I have ever seen.

Wow,that's weird. I was in New York this weekend and walked right by this guy. For some strange reason it didn't phase me at all and I don't even live in New York. I didn't even point him out to my friends who somehow missed him completly. Weird.
