Even in the comics that mystique lasts for a only a bit, probably not even batman's first year. TDK played that well when after begins criminals realized batman was a man.
If batman really wanted to seem like a beast he wouldn't include that mouth opening and would probably actually dress up much more like an actual bat. Besides the begins suit was very armoury but batman arguably never looked more "beastly" in any film. It's more actions that make batman more creature like than appearance.
