This outfit was unveiled at GenreCon 2013, and my goodness was it ever a blast to rock it at the convention!
Dick Grayson is by far my favourite Robin and probably runs for my favourite DC male character of all time (that is until the New 52. But I pretend that didn't happen ) Anyway I saw Vampy-Bit-Me do her own design of the character that couldn't help but think how cool that would be. However I didn't want to simply wear his noraml uniform, I wanted to make it my own. So I designed a simple top, added the gaunlets, gloves and a vest, making sure to have the nightwing symbol on the front of the top and the back of the jacket. I thought the blue belt looked cool too This pattern is actually something I picked up to make Wonder Woman's New 52 garb but I never got around to it. I added the choker just for some visual interest.
This photograph and the edits were done by my wonderful and amazing Boyfriend who did a fabulous job once again. Be sure to check out his page and his cosplays. You may even find the Nightwing cosplay I made for him earlier this year That's where the gaunlets were originally from.
I hope you guys like the photo and cosplay as much as I do. More pictures coming your way in the coming week
