Cosplay of the Day: This Nightwing Owns the Night


Move over, Robin. We all know Nightwing is so much cooler, as evidenced by this cosplayer's very effective take on the comic book character.

Nightwing originated as a Superman character, but when he and his buddy Flamebird teamed up with Batman and Robin (aka Dick Grayson), he really had an impact on the young Batman sidekick -- so much so, that Robin eventually renamed himself Nightwing, turning in the red and green ensemble for something a little more mature and edgy.

Cosplayed here by PhDPepper (clever name), Nightwing is brought to life in all his black and blue glory. This cosplayer put together an amazing, muscle-y costume, mask and all for this dark and moody photoshoot. He even got a buddy to step in to play a bad guy so he could put him in a choke hold! That's commitment to character!

PhDPepper started cosplaying back in 2009. Back then, he didn't know how to sew, which inspired him to get creative with his costume-making, but in 2011, he finally picked up a sewing machine, helping him make some even better designs.

PhDPepper has some other pretty cool cosplays over on his Facebook page, but for now, bask in the glory of Nightwing:
