She’ll Have Spanx

On the topic of it being a man’s world, saw “The Dark Knight Rises” yesterday.  Loved it.  I also loved the box of Junior Mints and 2+ hours of air conditioning.  I always check IMDB for trivia after I’ve seen a movie and here’s a bit about the Dark Knight’s costuming:

  • The Batsuit consisted of 110 separate pieces. The base layer was made of a polyester mesh, utilized by the military and high-tech sports manufacturers due to its breathability and moisture-retaining properties; molded pieces of flexible urethane were then attached to the mesh to form the overall body armor plating. Carbon fiberpanels were placed inside the sections on the legs, chest and abdomen. The cowl was sculpted from a cast of Christian Bale’s face and head to become a perfect fit for Bale.
  • Selina Kyle’s catsuit was made from two layers of polyurethane-coated spandex.

Yeah.  He had hand-sculpted body armor plating.  She had spanx.
