Robin always looked like a Christmas elf to me. That's a really lame costume. I think it came from his Circus outfit, but really, Batman should have made him wear something darker.

#19 Posted by BoOMbOoMpOw (1711 posts) - - Show Bio

His original costume is kind of ....ähem ......gay . And at least he doesn`t have  to shave his legs anymore .

#20 Posted by Death Certificate (5438 posts) - - Show Bio

That suit is reason why people reading the gold/sliver age comics thought batman was gay.

Weird costumes will be remembered, cool costumes will be acknowledged for a temporary amount of time.

Damian's costume rules. The original looked like a reject from Peter Pan.
#26 Posted by Duo_forbidden (1161 posts) - - Show Bio

 Sorry, but I prefer Tim's old and red costume, and Stephanie's costume.

 Even when Jason wore a different version of it, those yellow tights didn't make it better.

I like Damian's version 

#33 Posted by Son_of_Magnus (15258 posts) - - Show Bio

The original Robin costume was a perfect device. It was built to be a distraction with the bright colors have stocky kevlar reinforced chest guards and the legless shorts were to provide the utmost amount of agility and maneuverability and the pixie boots were better for landings and maneuvering tough acrobatic feats than thick boots. The costume was based off of Dick's Flying Grayson costume. Dick's main purpose was to distract the goons from afar with his bright colors and evade their attacks with his superior agility and speed to even Bruce's while Bruce crept up from the shadows and did the dirty work.

I originally hated Damian's costume but it has really grown on me and I can't choose between it and Tim's red and black

No, people thought they were gay because someone (the name escapes me) published a book criticizing DC and one of the remarks was that since Batman and Robin were two males, living alone together, unsupervised, meant they must be homosexuals. This, of course it absurd, as Dick was just twelve way back then.

I'm starting to view it as sort of a wrestling singlet. You hate to be caught in one, but it's what you have to wear to get the job done.

#44 Posted by RedK (2521 posts) - - Show Bio

NO, Tim's second one and Damien's are the best

I would have to say in order: 
 
Damien's Costume
Tim's 2nd Robin costume 
Jason's 2nd Costume (after his resurrection) 
Tim's 1st costume 
Stephanie's Costume

@DEGRAAF:
Where's Dick's? ;p
#49 Posted by Lion_Heart22 (446 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, it's not the coolest, but it IS the most iconic, in my opinion.. although I think differently of the costume depending on each Robin.

I guess my fave would be Tim's first costume. Robin just feels lacking without the green. Then his red costume, Then Stephanie, she had a great robin costume (her costume and Dick's in comparison is a great arguement in a "women are objectified in comics" debate. Then the costumes Jason and Dick wore. I dislike Damian, so...
