| <!-- miva_nodisplay //-->This rhinestone suit was worn by the character "The Riddler," portrayed by actor Jim Carrey, in the 1995 motion picture, "Batman Forever." This signature costume was constructed out of a white spandex material and is encrusted with multi-colored rhinestones, iridescent gold decals, and emerald green ? marks. The rhinestone continuity constantly changed while filming this scene. The adhesive glue that was used to attached the rhinestones, gold decals, and green ? marks would come loose due to Carrey's animated movement and excessive sweating during filming. The costume supervisor had a team of people on set that would put each costume on a mannequin and re-apply new rhinestones before Carrey put the suit on form filming. Eventually some of the ? appliques were hand stitched onto the garment to stop them from popping off the costume when Carrey would jump around the stage. This particular suit does not have any of the ? mark appliques sewn onto the garment. Also included with the costume is the green and silver glitter Creeper shoes made by "Underground Shoes" in London, accompanied by the original box. The soles of the shoes have minimal evidence of use due to the fact that they were only worn on the sound stage and the floor was a polished veneer. The costume includes the original production tags with, “Show: Batman, Char: Riddler, Actor: Jim Carrey, CG: 7, and SC# 494 - 509.”
Mr. Carrey wears this suit when the Riddler sits on his throne in his lair on Claw Island. He confronts Batman (Val Kilmer) with the nearly impossible choice of saving either Robin (Chris O’Donnell) or Dr. Chase (Nicole Kidman). Batman manages to save them both and destroys Riddler’s brainwave device, causing him to have a massive mental collapse.
Directed by Joel Schumacher, "Batman Forever," stars Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Chris O'Donnell, Michael Gough, and Drew Barrymore. It was nominated for three Academy Awards and a Golden Globe award. Producer Peter MacGregor-Scott stated that for the costume design, the Batman suit was redesigned along the lines of a more "MTV organic, and edgier feel." The film was a box office success, becoming the second-highest grossing film of 1995.
