Easy DIY "Robin" Toddler Halloween Costume


Sami was only 18 months old last Halloween, so he had no clue what was going on of course. Honestly, I wasn't even going to dress him up in a costume until my dad mentioned he already had a Batman costume for himself....that got me thinking that Sami could be his sidekick - Robin!

I did not want to spend a lot of money on a costume, but I was also excited to get creative & DIY his costume like we usually did as kids.  My parents always helped us make our costumes when we were little & I have great memories of that process (again, not that Sami has a clue it's Halloween, but it made for some cute photos!).

First, I had to decide which "Robin" costume I was going to try & recreate.  Even though my dad's Batman costume was a modern version of Batman, I ended up making the original Robin costume that Burt Ward portrayed in the 60's:
After looking at some old photos, I realized that it actually wouldn't be too difficult to recreate.  This is a really cute & fairly easy costume to make for your toddler!  Here's how I did it....

MATERIALS:
-yellow men's button down shirt
-green onsie
-red t-shirt or long sleeve shirt
-white tights
-black, yellow, & green felt
-yellow ribbon (optional)
-fabric glue or hot glue
