This costume is an original worn on screen by Michael Keaton as the caped crusader with it being possible to attribute both the cowl and bodysuit to specific sequences. Following its use by Keaton when fresh the cowl was worn by the stunt performer seen as Batman crashes through the skylight in the museum, for this sequence a small part of the chin was removed from the cowl to allow the stunt performer to look down in the restrictive head gear creating more visibility for him to safely perform the stunt. The one piece suit was cut at the waist during the production and used specifically for the close up shots of Keaton piloting the Batwing making it more comfortable for him to wear for long periods of time in the cockpit set. This ensemble has been mounted on a custom form with a lifecast of Michael Keaton and complimented with reproduction parts for display purposes. Over thirty years since its creation the costume shows some wear from the rigours of filming and age but this is true of any original screen used suit as they simply did not survive filming in pristine condition, it remains in overall excellent stable and displayable condition.
