Nightwing Cosplay Costume

Nightwing is a classic-style superhero, and his dress reflects that. He wears a skin-tight suit that covers him from neck to arms to feet. You can buy a spandex suit in black and blue or specifically seek one out that is made to look like Nightwing’s attire. You can also wear black protective body armor to really pull the look together. Nightwing wears a mask around his eyes to help conceal his identity. Get a black mask for the eyes and add the blue accents as needed. 

Nightwing wears armbands and a black utility belt as his main accessories. He fights using batons, so try and find a pair of blue and black ones. You could also secure a set of simple black batons and decorate them in blue to get the look.

About Nightwing

Born under the name Dick Grayson, Nightwing is a character in the Batman franchise. As a boy, he was taken under the wing of billionaire Bruce Wayne. This happened after Dick’s parents died in an acrobatic accident. While growing up with him, Dick eventually became Nightwing. Nightwing was essentially another Robin for Batman. 

While Dick seemed to find purpose in it at first, as he gets older, it begins to wear on him. Dick eventually decides he wants to leave Batman’s shadow and take his own path. He feels conflicted about fighting evil on his own and leaving Batman behind as he watches Bruce get darker and darker.
