Batman : Arkham Asylum Paper Props

4 02 2010

For the last few days I’ve been playing Batman: Arkham Asylum on the PC.  I’ve had it for ages but wanted to wait until I got the new PC so I could crank up the graphics and play it properly.  It’s a brilliant game.  I’m not going to review it right now, but maybe I will later.  There’s really very little to pick and ‘perfect’ doesn’t take up much space.

Anyway, as I was wandering through the asylum and beating up the scum of Gotham, I was paying attention to anything I might be able to reproduce as a paper prop, because that’s my current passion.  I found quite a few things but a couple seemed like they’d be a good start.

Name tags struck me early on, and there are three types I spotted while I was wandering around.  The most obvious one is pinned to the boob of the Joker’s main squeeze, Harley Quinn.  She’s stolen the Warden’s ID card, and that’s the first I recreated.  Second belongs to Commissioner Gordon, who is escorting the Joker on his way back to the Asylum.  It’s a Visitor card.   Finally there is the Doctor ID which is most common and found on all of the medical staff who work at the facility.   Oddly I didn’t see any cards for security, which is a bit disappointing.

I also re-created a mug label as well.  I took a bit of creative license with this one because the 3d model they’ve stuck it to is very low resolution and blocky, which distorts the label a bit.  If you want your own Arkham mug you can use the PNG file at online printing places like and to name just two.

Finally I printed a picture of the Penguin, who isn’t featured much in the game.  Hopefully he’s going to be in the sequel which was recently announced.

There’s more things I could take from the game and turn into paper props, which I might look at doing.  Stay tuned.
