Riddler is a villain from the DC comics. Developed by Bill Finger and Dick Sprang in the late 1940’s, the Riddler is a cunning and devious villain who uses riddles and puzzles to orchestrate is criminal activities. He is most notably known for being an infamous enemy of batman.
The riddler costume we are going to put together will be from the batman forever film. The riddler in this movie is portrayed by Jim Carrey. There are two variations of the riddler costume in this film. The first one is the suit like Riddler costume and the second is a once piece morph suit style. I will show you how to make both. I will have links to all the elements need below with descriptions on why I choose a particular piece of clothing.
For the cane, I came across several replica riddler style cane’s but a lot of reviews said that it arrived broken so i avoided those sellers. I did manage to find one on eBay that doesn’t seem to arrive broken. The cane itself looks great for what you’re paying for.
Riddler green suit (hat included and eye band)
For the suit version of the riddler costume, I found a full version. The full version includes both the hat and eye band which is great as we have to order fewer items which mean fewer deliveries which I’m all for.
Black Pointed Shoes
For the riddler costume footwear, I decided to go with a pair of black shoes as I could find a pair of green shoes that I liked. A lot of the riddler costumes I see opted for black shoes as well. For this particular costume, that has black trousers, I personally don’t think green shoes would work.
Riddler Green Hat
I managed to find a replica riddler style hat on eBay. I went for this because it has the question mark on the front of the hat and I personally prefer the dark green colour than the bright green ones I saw. It also includes a purple mask as well which is an added bonus.
Riddler green morph suit
For the one piece riddler costume, I went with a morph suit version as it is the closest representation of the one piece costume riddler uses. I look great in my opinion if this is the riddler look you are going for.
