    Hey guys I'm currently in the planning stages for my Robin costume to wear to the Pittsburgh Comic-con next year. I have some questions though and am looking for information/ suggestions.

    [​IMG]

    1. Where can I buy EVA foam, are there any stores that carry it or do I need to order this online ?

    2. What about his belt ? Any Suggestions ?

    3. The mask ? I don't have the means to sculpt anything right now as I'm staying with a friend, so is there anyone on here that sells these masks or does anyone have any other suggestions ?

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    This is the coolest Robin I have ever seen. Who'd of thought boy wonder could look so badass.
    You can usually find EVA foam or something like it at walmart or (up here anyways) at Canadian Tire.
    You can try leather or vinyl work for the belt since it sort of looks like pouches in the pic. As for the buckle, you may have to try and find something.

    You could always just paint the mask on with make up.

    Thanks guys ! I actually searched the net and found a lot including the mask for sale. I'm thinking for the shirt that I'm going to buy a tactical vest (the ones without the pockets) and refabric it with red fabric after I build up spots on it with EVA foam, I'm going to wear a under armor shirt underneath that matches the fabric. Then sew the Robin insignia on the upgraded vest. The Gauntlets are going to be fingerless tactical gloves with EVA foam over them to make the "armor" part. The boots will be made using this same method. I'm going to order the vest later this wee

    I also want to make a Arkham City Robin costume
    I'm going to use EVA foam for gauntlet and shin guards
    Belt will be difficult, and I think I'm going to use a red under armor shirt and buy a second one to use for the armor part, but idk, i havent found a good tactical vest
    Any links?

    This isn't my instructable, but I immediately thought it would be perfect for this type of mask.

    My main question on the costume that Brad made is how he made the belt. Everything else looks simple. I think I'm doing a combination of Animated Series and Arkham City.....since I don't want to shave my head lol and I'm just 19 years old lol so yeah haha

    I am willing to shave my head just to get that look for an up coming party.

    Chiming in a little late here - I will second the plug for Xtreme Design FX masks. I bought (ironically enough) one of their Red Robin masks a few years back for my Mr. Incredible costume, and thought it was a great deal. Shipped fast too, IIRC.

    Don't have the costume anymore, but I kept the mask - you never know when something like that might come in handy.

    Awesome job on this one!
    Wasn't really a fan of the shaved head thing, but he wears his hood up the entire time during gameplay anyways so... not really a big deal.

    I love BFX.

    Good luck with the Robin build. It's quite similar to the look and feel I'm trying to achieve in my build, so I'll be watching this one for your progress.

    While I think the idea of painting on the mask could be done to good effect, if you must have one why couldn't you make the mask out of foamies?
