There are sidekicks out there that define their roles past their relationships to the name on the cover of the comic. Such is the case of one of the most iconic sidekicks in all of comic book history, the Boy Wonder, Robin.

With so many characters having taken up Robin’s mantle, there's a wealth of variety to choose from in the cosplay community. Whether the character is paired up with the Bat-family, taking charge of the Teen Titans, or flying solo, Robin and Nightwing offer a lot of great cosplay options. These cosplayers bring the “dynamic” to the Dynamic Duo. These are the best Robin and Nightwing cosplays.

The Replacements: Dick Grayson And The Legacy Of Robin

Robin-Featured

Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

The first truth of Batman is that he was never alone, he always had help and he's almost always had a Robin by his side. Bruce Wayne has always needed the lightness of Robin to balance the darkness of Batman, and despite some tragedy along the way, the title of Boy (and Girl) Wonder is one of the most enduring legacies in the DC Universe.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum.

Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer's chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.
