Etsy Roundup: Batman’s Other Utility Belt

Da-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh, BATMAN! I hope you guys aren’t sick of Bruce Weezy (aka Batman), because we spent entirely too long finding the coolest Etsy things available pertaining to our favorite tortured hero.

We’re starting this nerd-train with subtlety, showcasing this minimalist phone decal. For those who aren’t willing to commit fully to the insanity that is fandom life; this is a great choice. The style of the decal fits seamlessly with iPhone and most smartphone designs, for an understated and cool effect. This is how you get the opposite sex to know that you’re interesting and alternative, but you’re also down to watch football on the weekends and get Taco Bell. The best of both worlds!

2. Bane Mask

Functional and stylish, there is actually no reason we can think of not to purchase this awesome hat. Is it a hat? It sort of covers your face, so let’s call it a Face Hat. This Face Hat instantly gives you the power to break billionaires backs and change the course of the free world. Well, not really. But, think about how warm your nose will be!

3. Vinyl Record Clock

Dude, what more is there to say? Made from recycled records, this clock is a panty-dropper for sure. It’s affordable, cool, and will always let you know how late you are to social engagements! Bonus!

For all you puddin’s out there: don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. This Harley Quinn cosplay mask is seriously CHOICE. With professional grade quality, this durable mask instantly gives you at least +5 hot points. Maybe more. Let’s see your sledgehammer, and then we’ll talk. This shop also offers a variety of other masks and colors. Even as a stand alone piece, this makes a great costume. Plus, who doesn’t love the idea of running around with a mask in their car in case of emergencies? You never know when you might need to save the day.

Well, this is more terrifying than anything else but OH MY GLOB check out dat realism. While part of me is hesitant to include this (because HELLO, nightmares!) the craftsmanship is seriously too good to ignore. While it may be out of your budget for a costume, these masks could also work as installment art or the Coolest Office Decor Of All Time. Dibs on the babe with the comb-over.

6. Batman Shirt

Pretty sweet threads, huh? The biggest thrill comes from the coziness factor, but puns done this well deserve credit. Comfy and cool, I dig it. There are a lot of different styles available, but this one is a favorite.

7. Handmade Nightwing Wooden Magnet

First off, this magnet is apparently made out of Blood Wood. Who knows what weird shamanistic powers this magnet contains? For the low price of $13, you could possibly clean the streets of Gotham or hang up your next set of Domino’s coupons. The possibilities are endless.

So, what do you think? Did we include all of your favorite Batman regalia? Don’t forget to check out some free Batman patterns here. Also I just made a bunch of Batman amiurugumi available in the shop, too, along with the patterns to make them!

Holy free pattern, Batman!!

This Friday yet another awesome superhero movie of this summer comes out, The Dark Knight Rises, and you know I’m here to make an equally awesome pattern to commemorate it!

So some of you may know the little bat pattern I posted last year, well I used that pattern with a few differences to make today’s free pattern of a simple Batman Logo, but that’s not all…

Iron man’s not the only one with some sweet gloves, and do to the popularity of my Iron Man Fingerless Mittens posted last month, I decided to make some Batman Ninja versions of them!

Avengers Assemble!!

So last weekend The Avengers hit theaters and it was awesome!! I’m used to be really big into comics when I was younger, my favorite of which were the Fantastic Four. I thought Mr. Fantastic was just the coolest super hero and his brains mixed with his abilities made him the most awesome of superheros. But alas, the movies sucked haha.

Anyhow, I saw The Avengers last weekend and it was just so good. Later, while browsing through Etsy I stumbled upon a shop called Nerdifacts. They make the coolest fingerless gloves to mimic super hero gauntlets. I thought they were pretty cool, so I made my own version of one of her pairs, Iron Mans. Not only did I make a pair for my cousin, but I decided to share the pattern for all of you guys! This way you can make yourself a pair to prepare for your next viewing of The Avengers! Download at bottom of the page or here.

Here are some photos of the final product…

This was my best “kick bad guy ass” pose, haha.

Again, the credit for the idea of these Iron Man Gauntlets goes to Nerdifacts, check out their shop here. You can see a bunch of different ideas for different versions of the fingerless gloves there too.


So here’s the pattern for download, and don’t forget, this pattern may be for Iron Man Gloves, but it includes instructions for making my version of Fingerless Mittens as-well.

Download the pattern HERE <—

Don’t forget to add this pattern to your favorites on Ravelry and Craftsy, pin-it and share it on Facebook too!!
