    The REMAKE/REMODEL meme is one of my favourite things. Artists need a place to show off and Whitechapel should always be It. A handful of entries will be showcased on Bleedingcool at the end of each challenge.

    GODDAM COUTURE BATMAN

    THE RULES:

    This is for ART ONLY. Any pen-portraits, or crappy scribbles padded-out with words, will cause a deployment of the newly-trained Urethral Attack Maggots. And a banned account.

    No stock-photo manipulation. No half-arsed bollocks. Anything deemed to be piss-takery will be nuked from orbit. Original photography is fine.

    No more than ONE submission by any one person.

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    THE GODDAM COUTURE BATMAN

    Let’s do something pure and redesigny.

    2012. Bruce Wayne realises his relentless crusade against the superstitious and cowardly criminal classes has left him totally bankrupt. Luckily he’s spent 30 years creating outrageously fetishy costumes for his own use, and has hence accidentally become the world’s foremost sartorial designer.

    Once upon a time he fell down a hole, saw a bat, blubbed like a baby, then decided to go kick ass while sporting pointy ears. Now he’s going to rebuild his fortune on the catwalks of Milan using the same winged-rat, utility-belted, caped-bondage-goon vibe in his amazing frou-frou couture ensembles.

    You will bring the Fashion. You will bring me the mighty centrepiece of the Brüs/W?n Studio Collection, and god help the poor model stuck inside the thing if he/she can’t move well enough to beat up some criminals while sashaying.

    Go.

    Original photography is fine, huh? That includes iphone in the mirror shots, right? Because I'm waaaaaaay ahead of you on this one.

    A bat-themed challenge? Must be a carryover from the previous challenge....

    So, we're going to be fashion designers this time around? Well, that's different! Right, I think I know where I could have Bruce show off his bat wares. But first I need to think about how to get it going.

    Interesting. It'd be really easy to go goth vampire if you're not careful to stress the Batman elements of the design. Hmm...

    I wish artistic talent was something that could be lent out, so I could borrow a bit for a week. :)

    "You will bring me the mighty centrepiece of the Brüs/W?n Studio Collection"

    Is this mandatory for the fashion line's name?

    It is not. But you one-up me at your peril.

    I hope this is how Nolan's Batrilogy ends - with a fashion show. With these clothes.

    I wish I was making Batman

    [EDIT: these are brilliant btw]
