What a girl wants. What a girl needs.  What's more exclusive and has more cachet than scoring a Birkin bag? Pow!!! A Batgirl Birkin bag! Holey Haute Couture, Batman!

Yes, you too can knock off a version of this famous bag.  Okay, even mine started out as a knockoff so you ain't doing anything iffy by copying another knockoff. No need to worry about the caped crusaders coming after your Fn a... wait, maybe they need it for a costume party.

Jam packed full of functional features, this bag is equipped with a Bat Signal, Bat Proximity Alarm, Bat Taser, Bat Phone and plays the Batman TV Theme. Na na na na na na na na BAT MAN!   It looks just marvelous.

This concept is based on the Batman television show from the mid 60's that I grew up on.  That is the classic TV Batman. From that, is the classic TV Batgirl which provides the inspiration for this purple piece of couture and handbaggery.  I think the Iron Lady would have carried one of these.



The song played by the Flora at the end is low in volume as the camera didn't really pick it up.  Kinda like the hearing test you get in school.  Raise your hand if you hear the tones.

Maybe this Vine clip lets you hear the sound better https://vine.co/v/b2M9F2LHu1Y. and https://vine.co/v/bQ9TmpTd5Wd

Thanks. Any new ibles from you in the works?
I have over 10 at last count sitting in iPhotos as photos, text takes me days. I think today might be the day to start tackling one - thanks for the nudge.
I love this! You have too much fun when you think of ideas don't you?! I only wish I was arduino capable, I *think* I could get as far as gluing felt on a bag but programming a circuit seems a bit taunting!

Arduino is so easy to use because there are so many tutorials out there to get you started. Simple stuff like getting a few LEDs to blink turns out pretty impressive. Sparks and zapping some expensive components happens once in a while but don't let that scare you off.
One day when my baby is a kid I'd love to work on a Halloween light display with arduino, right now I just don't have enough long blocks of time to learn, but until then I will love vicariously through instructables :-)

Before I got my arduino I hacked those cheap bicycle flasher lights to embed in things. A layer of fiberfill to diffuse even more. Press dome lights, book lights, all have the batteries, switch and LED wired up for you. Transplant one in stuffed animals.
