Reader's Robin Costumes from 1974

This is actually a continuation of the comments sections from last week's post. Back in the 70's, DC allowed readers to send in versions of new costumes for Robin. I don't have the issue that printed the winners, but I do have Batman #259, which printed some of the entries. I thought it'd be fun to show them here. Even back then, most readers knew those bare legs had to be covered. Click to enlarge...

I love the mustache on Carol Strickland's entry!

For those of you that felt that Robin's costume wasn't gay enough...

I come in late ONE TIME and both of the best jokes are taken.

Man.

Some of those look like "Studio 54 Robin".
