Cosplayer The Letter Jay > Costume of Robin from Batman: Arkham City
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Well, the shirt is made from a thick vinyl that was painted with automotive paint, and a lot of the pieces were inset, and then there were a couple of pieces that were appliqued on top. If I didn't put a zipper in that thing and set lycra in at certain parts, I am not too certain how I would have gotten into that. A special thanks to Ammie for helping me with the lining in that beast.
The pants have an inset red stripe running down each leg. Other than that, it follow basic patterns for denim jeans.
Ammie patterned out the cape and actually made that, I was moving too slow, lol. It is constructed from lining material.
The utility belt has 10 pouches all made with real leather and each are riveted together. They close with magnetic bag clasps. The designs on the front were carved in by hand. I achieved the color with dyes, rather than paint, so that there would be no cracking or chipping.
As for the armor again it is all dyed, and parts of it were water formed (the greaves and the mask). All of the armor fastens with snaps, with the exception of the mask. That just sticks on with flash tape.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I miss my hair :(
