Arkham City Robin

Continuing my adventures in costumes involving glue, synthetic trims, and metallic paint, I helped Mike make a new costume for the Penny Arcade Expo East (PAX East) convention. Mike chose to make Robin from the Batman: Arkham City video game. I sewed the cape, sewed red trim to the pants, constructed the belt, and sewed the logo on the shirt. Mike made the staff and the utility pouches for the belt. Together we built the armor, using soccer shin guards for the arms and craft foam for the legs, which we then painted silver. The boots and mask were purchased. The latter from Ravenwood Masks.
