Robin Cape Collars.


Hey everybody,
After visiting Australia's movieworld, I've been thinking about putting together a B+R Robin costume, but I'm not quite sure where to start... and on top of that, the one peice that seems to be a real mystery is the latex collar peice... it looks like it sits on top of the cape, and mounts to the chest using cape clips.

The collar on that suit is beautiful, but can I suggest another possibilty?
I have in the past created a collar by cutting the upper head part of a cowl off. If you can get one of the bros to part with a cowl that might be flawed up top, you can have a perfect Robin collar.

Hey Brin,
I thought about doing just that, but was worried about the fit... most cowls (the non-rubies ones, anyway) are designed to pull on over the head, so wouldn't that make it a bit large sitting around the neck? I suppose I could add a slit, but then I'd be worried about making the sides line up... Guess it'd just be a matter of taking my time?

Brin speaks wisely. I put together a Robin suit for my buddy for when we do our appearances, and used the bottom half of a Sonar cowl. it works fine and looks good. it's by no means accurate, but it works. especially on a budget. and the other choice would be to follow Markus's advice and contact the RPAC.

here's a pic of the one I use

the law is inadequate. in order to shame it's inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law. to pursue natural justice. this is not vengeance. revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. no, not vengeance, PUNISHMENT

The Rubies Sonar actually has a pretty small neck, so as James says, use one of those if you can find it.
