Day 20 – Robin Super Hero DIY Halloween Costume Tutorial + {GIVEAWAY!}


Robin Super Hero Costume

This costume is sure to be a hit with the popularity of all the new super hero movies coming out! You could spend a lot of money on a super hero costume these days, but why do that when you easily make one yourself for less than half the cost?

We’ll show you just how to do that with items from Always Under Pay.

(our pieces available for ages 2-5 years)



Red Loopy Surround Bow (You’ll need about 15” or so of the 3/8” red grosgrain ribbon to make this.)

Yellow Boutique Bow (I made my own using the tutorial in the link, but you could also buy a boutique bow clip and remove the clip piece.) If you make your own, you will need about 1 yard of the 1.5” yellow grosgrain ribbon and about 6” or so of the 3/8” yellow grosgrain ribbon as well as about a foot of string.

Lime Green Marabou Puff Clip

Hot glue your Loopy Surround Bow to the center of your marabou puff clip. Then, glue your boutique bow to the center of the loopy bow as shown.


For Top:

Black Dance Leotard

5/8″ Black Grosgrain Ribbon (about 1 yard)

Yellow and Black Felt Sheets

Glue Gun and Stick


Straight Pins

I downloaded this free Robin Super Hero Logo Template here. Then I sized it to what I needed to fit the top and cut the pieces out of felt as shown below.

Hot glue the ‘R’ to the black oval, then hot glue that piece to the red crochet top as snown below.


Use the length of 5/8″ Black ribbon to thread through the center of the red crochet top as a neck tie. If you are using this piece on top of a leotard, you can skip the neck tie if you like.


For Bottom:

Lime Green Tutu (we layered two for a fuller look)

1.5″ Black Grosgrain Ribbon (about 1 yard)

Glue Gun and Stick


Make a big black bow with the 1.5″ grosgrain ribbon. Trim the ends and use a lighter to heat set them so they do not fray. Hot glue the ribbon to the front of one of your tutus.


And that’s it! All done. Isn’t this just too fun and cute? We love it!
