Welcome to the Dark Knight’s dressing room

Batman has always been a guy who likes to change his outfit, every new Batman seems to get a new Bat-suit to wear.  Thorsten Bonsch has graced the pages of The Brothers Brick many times, and this time he has taken on the Dark Knight’s dressing room.  With more that a little gothic influence, Thorsten has place the costumes deep within the Bat Cave.  The winding staircase uses fences as the steps leading to the raised platform.  I love the brick-built stalactites and stalagmites giving a sense of impressive scale to the scene.

Taking a closer look at the platform gives a better view of the Gothic-inspired cases for the Bat-suit and Robin-suit and you can see that both the central pillar and the cases have elaborate, ornamental decoration.  I love the tall candlesticks on the table, they fit into the scene perfectly.

Batman Mosaic

This mosaic, by Ken Robichaud, is incredibly striking. I particularly like the ragged edges of the cape and how it hangs off the edge of grey background, breaking up the stark lines.
