Re: An impor-TUT discovery!

Foam latex that old would have been much too brittle to remove. Luckily Jim said it was some sort of urethane.

An impor-TUT discovery!

The other day at the Hollywood Museum, they let my effects guy Jim Ojala and I inspect the Victor Buono displays in the "Planet of the Apes" exhibit. When we removed the mutant prosthetic...who do you think we found underneath??? On the back of one of the busts, someone had written "Victor Bruno." D...

Re: Batman Hawaiian Shirt

Yes, they run a little small. I bought an XL and it fits fine. But when we customized them to Hawaiian bowling shirt style, they fit better. Here are a few shots of my pal Mark and I wearing our "bowling shirt-ized" Batman Hawaiian shirts. If anyone would like theirs customized, my seamstress is pre...

Re: Adam West Batman Exhibtion Opening in September In Walla Walla!

A great idea! While the Hollywood Museum exhibit focused on the 1966 series as a whole, it will be nice to have something geared more specifically toward Adam. Well done!

Re: Just dreaming...

Yup, that's the plan. When extending we'll be looking into pre-66 as well as modern day. Stay tuned!

Re: Just dreaming...

Thanks Batrunner. Doing anything printed is a rights issue, and being a not-for-profit the museum simply can't afford licensing fees like that. We reached out to both Commisar and Azarian initially, but neither wished to participate. No room for a Bat Boat or Batcopter, but we do have the original B...

Re: Wayne Family Crest patch...

You can easily find ascots on ebay or amazon....I got the one I used for the Bruce Wayne mannequin on ebay. A really nice eggplant (or was it plum?) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gentleman-stylish-Style-Floral-Polyester-Silk-Cravat-Neck-Tie-Ascot-Necktie/162639567889?var=&hash=item25de12dc11 We had a lot...

Wayne Family Crest patch...

I've decided to have an embroiderer make up some Wayne Family Crest patches. They'll be 4" tall. They won't be quite as ornate as these, but they'll convey the same idea. As near as I can tell, the patch they used on the show is an RAF Ordnance Division patch. Which makes total sense, considering Ja...

R I P Chuck McCann

I didn't see a thread about it here, so I figured I'd start one. My buddy Chuck McCann passed away about a week ago from a heart attack at the age of 83. He was one of the greats of my field and there was hardly anything he didn't do. Kid's show host, comic actor, entertainer, puppeteer, producer, w...

Re: Batman Hawaiian Shirt

Well, I went to my neighborhood Kohl's today and BINGO! I found 9 shirts left. I bought them all. I'm having mine converted into a bowling shirt style, with contrast color panels sewn in the side. As you can see I got a nice color of blue that matches Batman's color on the print. I got 2-Smalls, 2-M...
