we need a little more info i think :)

first, i think its great, that youre doing this.

b) do you want a classic fabric robin, batman and robin, arkham city robin, or anything generic?

3) what is your budget, and what materials do you intend to use in general

well, you have your work cut out for you :)

ok i will try and help even tho that kind of costume is not really my kind of town, but i think i can help you nontheless on some parts.

Cape: you will need to sew that. it has a hoodie, and a cape part, and is joined in the front by some kind of round knob. you probably will need a sewing machine and some skills for that :D

pants: look like regular, baggie pants without bags to me. you could get baggy pants with those side bags, and take the bags off.

boots: for the shin part i recommend foam. look up shades desert storm pepakura, it is something in that direction
basicly youre gonna need normal boots, and do the boot covers in foam.

forearms, gloves: also foam appliance, build the forearm guards seperately, and the gloves seperately. i would use leather gloves as a base.

for the belt, you could use one of those army belts, with holes in it

and either buy the pouches to fit in the belt, or make them yourself, either by sewing or modeling (depending on how functional you want them)
if youre not totally out for accuracy, i would just buy the regular pouches for those army belts, and maybe modify them slightly

the beltbuckle, you will probably have to sculpt, and mold/cast and attach to your belt

for the mask, i would rather use silicone, as its more durable, and longlasting, if you can afford it

the tricky part will be on the shirt.
i would contact batpirisss on this one, they made the arkham city batman costume, and its full of win

they will probably be able to help you more in that case

i think thats all, unless you also need help on the broomstick
ok, here it is: buy a broomstick :D and wrap the center part with a leather strip to get the texture

IronBoy,

I am starting one of these. I suggest you read up on the foam suits that are being made here and familiarize yourself with the techniques. EVA would be a great and easy way to do this.
