One Irish cosplayer’s outfit earned him something much different: a Guinness World Record title.

According to a recent Gizmodo article, Julian Checkley created a Batman cosplay costume that would actually impress the Dark Knight himself. It certainly impressed the folks at Guinness World Records, which awarded him the coveted “most functional gadgets on a cosplay suit.”

In Checkley’s YouTube video, he shows how the costume houses no less than 23 different gadgets…all of which work! These gadgets range from a two-way radio to an ultrasonic anti-dog device to even a fireball shooter. Needless to say, many of these gadgets would have him stopped by convention security at any given anime or comic book convention, but that is the price you pay for Guinness prestige.

Fireball shooter
