Katsucon 2011 – Scarecrow (Batman)


Hi Everyone!

This was taken at Katsucon Last Year! This is probably the best Scarecrow cosplay I have seen at my MANY conventions. I wanted to share with everyone. I am hoping to see him again at Katsucon this year!

In case you don’t know, The Scarecrow is a Supervillain in the Batman series. The Scarecrow, also known as Dr. Jonathan Crane, appears in the Batman comic books published by DC Comics.

The character first appeared in World’s Finest Comics #3 which was published in Fall 1941. It was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane.

Dr. Jonathan Crane was a psychologist who used a variety of drugs and psychological tactics to exploit the fears and phobias of his adversaries. My fear is Spiders and small spaces so thank God this bad dude doesn’t exist in real life.

If you are a fan of the epic movie series, you were introduced to the Scarecrow! Irish actor Cillian Murphy portrayed the Scarecrow in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and will do so again in The Dark Knight Rises.

In 2009, the Scarecrow was ranked as IGN’s 58th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.

Hope you enjoy!
