what? a mirror featured here??? yeah but this isn’t just any other mirror. at a glance, it looks to be just another gothic, arty wall mirror but if you scrutinize closely, the mirror is actually the Batman logo. if Batman has a mirror, it would probably look something like this. not a bad idea cos’ the Dark Knight can check out how he looks before he heads out to bash up the villains. you know, life ain’t a bed of roses for a public figure like Batman and even a superhero needs to look sharp, don’t they? well, you can do the same too for just €290 (about US$412). i mean, just ‘the looking into the mirror’ part, the ‘bash-up-the-villians’ part is entirely optional.
