Prince – Original 1989 Batman Mirror Bracelet as Worn in “Batdance” Video
An original custom-made Batman mirrored wristband, made for Prince and nearly identical to the one he wore in the “Batdance” video. Prince’s former guitar tech, Joel Bernstein, explained to us that a number of these were made for Prince with a more substantial elastic wrist attachment than the one in the “Batdance” video, so they could be worn during Prince’s energetic stage performances. We obtained two of these mirrored wristbands as part of a large lot of Prince and NPG stage-worn costumes, from the collection of a former Paisley Park employee.
We have no way of knowing if this particular example was worn by Prince during a performance, but as it was part of a large group of stage and photo shoot worn costumes, it’s entirely possible (evidently a small number of these were also available in Prince’s Minneapolis NPG store in the 1990’s.) Extremely rare; with Recordmecca’s lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
(Elsewhere on the site is an identical Batman mirror bracelet known to have been worn on stage by Prince, and obtained directly from Joel Bernstein).
