Cosplay of the Day: An Appropriately Miniature Damian Wayne as Robin
Perhaps Batman’s tiniest sidekick to date, Damian Wayne (son of Batman himself) is a cute — but deadly — little ass-kicker, and we love this tiny imitation.
Yesterday we brought you a classic Batgirl courtesy of Teri Standiford, a reader who submitted her own cosplay photos, and today we bring you another submission from Teri — her son Owen dressed as Damian Wayne, aka the fifth incarnation of Batman’s sidekick, Robin.
A little background on Damian Wayne: he’s the product of an affair between Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul (daughter of Ra’s al Ghul). While his character had various stories over the years, it wasn’t until Grant Morrison took him on in 2006 that he got a really solid arc — Damian is trained by the League of Shadows to be a killer, but then he goes to live with his dad, Batman, who teaches him how to hone his skills in a more productive way, and thus a new version of Robin is born.
We love little Owen dressed as an appropriately sized version of this superhero, and we think his mom Teri is pretty awesome for getting her son involved in the cosplay action. What kid doesn’t like to dress up as someone they admire? Owen’s just got it even better because his mom is super talented!
