Costume Ideas/Help for Nightwing and Robin
So I want to make costumes of Nightwing and Robin, but I'm not sure where or how to start. This is going to be my first time attempting to make a legit costume, so please be as specific as possible.
For Nightwing, I was thinking of a black wetsuit and using some sort of black tape to get the "sections" look of his outfit. And the blue logo, maybe something with paper clay/mache? Also what do you all recommend to use to hold his escrima sticks on the back (I want this to be not be bulky either).
For Robin, I'm not sure what material to use to make the arm guards and shin guards. Also how would I make the armor look for the red shirt? And also what should I use to make his belt and cape that's black on the outside and yellow on the inside.
Like I said, I am new to this but want to make this as legit as possible. Thank you in advance for your advice.
