TBT: From the ashes of Rubies' and through the mists of time, a throw-back to Aunt Harriet's brother Ben! :)

Oh the memories. That Ben Cooper was my first Batman costume. I’ve come a long way since then. 😁 This was taken Thursday night. I didn’t feel the suit was dark enough so I dyed it a little bit darker. I think I nailed it.

Looking good, both of you! I hope y'all had a great time rocking your suits!

Looks great, Batman65!

Thanks, Ben - I've been dying to do this one for a few years now. Had a fun time in it and yes, the mask is just as hot as I remembered and even worse in the peripheral vision dept. with the '66 cowl underneath, for which everyone seemed to figure out I was Batman (for some strange reason!)

That's great! I'd buy one of those in a heartbeat. Ben Cooper is back and making Marvel Costumes now.

I recently heard that Rubies is the successor to the original Ben Cooper company. I wonder if this is really true and if so, are they re-launching the brand (with those Marvel costumes?)
