Series: Batman (Arkham City)
Character: Edward Nigma - The Riddler
Debuted At: Amazing Arizona Comic Con 2013
Sylar had been contemplating being Edward Nigma from the new Batman games ever since Arkham City came out. And when the Amazing Arizona Comic Con asked him to host the Masquerade alongside our friend Jessica Nigiri (who would be cosplaying Harley Quinn) no time was better than now!
The costume was made last minute for the convention and based heavily on the Riddler's cover art as opposed to his in-game color variation. We chose this difference because we felt the all green suit/purple question mark combination was not as striking as the grey/green look. We liked this one because it felt more gritty, like the game's aesthetic.
The suit was bought and tailored. A leather giant question mark was sewn on the back, and each question mark then hand painted on. A bowler hat was bought and painted green the rest we had on hand. The cane top was made from foamboard and cardboard, painted and attached to pvc pipe.
