Our family has never done a theme before but this year we are all going as characters from Batman and Robin comics and movies. Daddy is Batman, the girls are Catwoman and Batgirl and my son is Robin. I am still working on mine. My brother is hoping to go with us as The Riddler and our friend might go with us as Joker.
My Son as Robin
For my son’s robin costume, we got on from Wholesale Costume Club. They have a good selection of Batman and Robin Costumes as well as costumes for just about everything you could think of.
They have two types of Robin costumes: Justice League and Teen Titan Robin. They basically look the same but the first comes in 0-6 and 6-12 months sizes while the Teen Titan comes in 2T-4T.
If you have two sons, one being Batman and the other Robin would be an adorable idea.
How It Fits
I got a Toddler size for my 18 month old son which is listed as size 1-2 and it fits pretty well. It’s basically the 2T. It’s baggy enough to fit over warm clothes. It’s a little long in the legs but we can easily pin it so it won’t go over his feet. The only problem is that the mask is too big, but what toddler keeps a mask on anyways? We will just paint a mask on his face for Halloween.
When buying clothing online, it’s often difficult to decide what size to buy. Each costume has a size chart with specific measurements so you can measure your child at home and match it up instead of relying on whether the size they say is the same as your child.
The cape is detachable and the mask is by itself, the rest is a one piece suit that closes in the back with a piece of Velcro. It’s made from flannel and can be hand washed.
I am impressed with the costume, it is good condition, looks like it will last pretty long and looks adorable on him. Add black face paint for a mask and shoes and it will be perfect.
I can’t wait to get the rest of our family’s costumes and see what we all look like together. I know it will be great!
