So unbelievably happy this past weekend, so just want to mention a few things: I
finished my Red Robin cosplay! Literally since starting cosplaying, I
have wanted to make Red Robin’s suit. Tim Drake is my favorite comic
book character, so I’ve always tried to complete his various suits–but I
never thought I had the skills for this costume. I’m so glad it’s 90%
finished (working on cowl still) you don’t even know.
marcusto ended up reblogging my first official photo of it, and holy crap, I
just about died. He is, without a doubt, my FAVORITE comic book artist
ever. So, as you can imagine, I was completely blown away by his acknowledgment! Thank you so, so much, Marcus! I’m still saving up for some of your artwork, and I WILL (fingers crossed infinitely) be meeting you at a con some day!
Also many thanks to the people who liked and/or reblogged the photo. I never truly feel 100% good in my costumes, but your support (and your tags, holy crap, your tags are amazing) is making me feel great. Especially you atomicrobin. I’m so happy we’re friends!
I’ll be debuting this suit at Anime Expo in July, and San Diego Comic Con shortly after. Hope to see some of you there, and if not, check askthethirdrobin for updates!
