The Robin CowlEdit
The Robin Uniform differed between Robins but carried over a notable color scheme of Red, Black and Yellow. Dick Grayson's first suit was based off of his mothers design for Dick's acrobat costume. It featured a red sleevless shirt and green tights to represent his family. After becoming Robin, Dick and Batman altered it with green sleves, finned gloves, the utility belt and a domino mask. During his teenage years Dick altered it into his most recognizable suit which featured the first red, black and yellow scheme with a red shirt with black sleeves, his tech gloves, the utility belt, black pants, boots and a cape covering Robin's neck to his shoulders.
Once Jason adopted the role from a young age, Dicks suit was left alone and Jason created a smaller suit with no legs which more closely represented Dick's young suit. Once becoming a teenager Jason took Dick's old suit and altered it with full red sleeves, his own utility belt, gloves, boots, Robin Insignia and tights which depicted the legless look but with red legs with black in the crotch area. Jason's suit was severly damaged after he was murdered by the joker.
Tim Drake was much older then the other Robin's when he adopted the role and therefore created his suit from scratch. It highly resembles Jason Todd's old suit which Tim modeled it after. His is a full body suit featuring mostly red colors in the upper and lower body, it also featured many yellow and red designs on the body. The suit also had finned gloves, small footwear and a detachable cape and utility belt.
