spared us all from a view of that
For the first time, we have a Robin costume without the "R" logo present in almost every other interpretation of the character. (See our original contest announcement; the "R" is on every Robin's uniform.) Instead, he's given his own stylized Robin on the chest, similar to the bat on Batman's. This makes him identifiable as the character we know, while giving him a rather radical makeover since it eliminates the traditional green and yellow entirely from the suit.
This actually makes it very similar to Dick Grayson's Nightwing costume, utilizing red instead of blue. Like Tim Drake's cape two-toned cape, this version has a black exterior and deep red interior.
So what we have is a concept that, while actually interesting, was unfortunately executed in a manner that made it a laughing stock. If done correctly, this could have been something that looked functional and cool. But it is an example of how the concept of drastically moving away from a character's established norms can still make a him or her recognizable.
Again, B&R is a terrible, horrible, attrocious film. But let us know what you think regarding the concept of the design below!
