Even now, Dick is still young and when he first became Nightwing he was a Teen Titan. That look was hilariously of its time and he currently prefers red to turquoise (why DC why?!) but this is the costume I think of as Nightwing’s (it even showed up in the cartoon, remember?).

Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Wonder Girl (Back-to-School Series)

And this outfit has a lot to do with it. I love its silly nineties earnestness.
