Holy Hole in a doughnut! 1966 Robin costume

Well I did make the costume in time for my son’s birthday party. I also managed to produce a Darth Vader & angel costume. Tell you what, it’s almost a production line here!

So here is the 1966 style Robin Costume I made. You will notice my there are no tights and the briefs have been replaced with shorts. I know, not sticking with tradition, but I do think more practical and much easier for a 5-year-old to wear. Well, I have noticed in the 1966 TV show, Robin does flash a bit of unsightly tight gusset from time to time. Not a nice look. I also did not make boots or boot covers, or gloves. I’m hoping I will find some green children’s gloves…one day. And the boots, I’ll get around to that! Please note the utility belt did originally have 6 little canisters on it. One fell off at the party. Maybe I should stitch them on!?

have a great night,

Ellie 🙂
