Every self-respecting geek has a few fandom-related items of clothing in his or her wardrobe. But some aren’t satisfied with store-bought clothing until they rip it up and piece it back together to create something unique, like these ten reconstructed Batman items. Most of the designers featured here sell their creations online, so be sure to check out their wares!

10. Joker Dress & Hoodie
Technically this is 10 and 11, since Romann had five Dark Knight t-shirts to work with and came up with three separate items of clothing (check her post for the third, plus a cool Zelda shirt).
