Holy getup! Batman costume on display in Elkhart

ELKHART -

Holy getup, Batman! A costume worn by Adam West who starred as the Caped Crusader on the 1960s TV show is on display at the Hall of Heroes Super Hero Museum in Elkhart.

Museum founder Allen Stewart tells the Elkhart Truth the costume valued at $75,000 was a partial donation. He says the museum paid $7,500 for the costume. He says the previous owner wanted the costume to go somewhere it would be appreciated.

The costume included the blue boots, the brass buckle on the yellow leather utility belt and comes with a certificate of authenticity and a letter signed by West warning the new owner that "wearing it in public can bring some strange looks and the chance of being permanently institutionalized."
