Does anyone think the original Robin costume was the coolest?

Robin always looked like a Christmas elf to me. That's a really lame costume. I think it came from his Circus outfit, but really, Batman should have made him wear something darker.

That suit is reason why people reading the gold/sliver age comics thought batman was gay.

 Sorry, but I prefer Tim's old and red costume, and Stephanie's costume.

 Even when Jason wore a different version of it, those yellow tights didn't make it better.

The original Robin costume was a perfect device. It was built to be a distraction with the bright colors have stocky kevlar reinforced chest guards and the legless shorts were to provide the utmost amount of agility and maneuverability and the pixie boots were better for landings and maneuvering tough acrobatic feats than thick boots. The costume was based off of Dick's Flying Grayson costume. Dick's main purpose was to distract the goons from afar with his bright colors and evade their attacks with his superior agility and speed to even Bruce's while Bruce crept up from the shadows and did the dirty work.

No, people thought they were gay because someone (the name escapes me) published a book criticizing DC and one of the remarks was that since Batman and Robin were two males, living alone together, unsupervised, meant they must be homosexuals. This, of course it absurd, as Dick was just twelve way back then.

I'm starting to view it as sort of a wrestling singlet. You hate to be caught in one, but it's what you have to wear to get the job done.

Tim's 2nd Robin costume 
Jason's 2nd Costume (after his resurrection) 
Tim's 1st costume 
Stephanie's Costume

Well, it's not the coolest, but it IS the most iconic, in my opinion.. although I think differently of the costume depending on each Robin.

I guess my fave would be Tim's first costume. Robin just feels lacking without the green. Then his red costume, Then Stephanie, she had a great robin costume (her costume and Dick's in comparison is a great arguement in a "women are objectified in comics" debate. Then the costumes Jason and Dick wore. I dislike Damian, so...
