Meet Jason Peter Todd aka – Brendon – aka Long Island Red Hood. I’ve known this guy for a couple of years now and I accidentally mistook him for another cosplayer the first time that I met him with his Nightwing costume. But he turned out to be a completely different great costumer. His specialty is Jason Todd, aka the anti-hero Robin. Or the Robin that died and came back to life. Although that title now technically belongs to a couple different Robins. But regardless, we’ll say that Jason is the first out of the Robins to come back to life.
Anyways, Brendon is a badass costumer that has been making his own costumes since he was practically a kid. He has organized several photoshoots at different conventions that he even allowed me to attend in a few instances. (See pic above where he’s choking me and threatening me with a knife). And that’s only one of his shoots. He has done many others that include him as Red Hood, Nightwing and Spider-Man.
Recently Brendon was at WinterCon in New York where he and some other friends of his organized another shoot with several Batman members present. Luckily I was a part of that one too. He is currently dating another cosplayer who’s specialty is Batgirl. This version of Batgirl is not exactly Jason Todd’s girl since this is the Stephanie Brown Batgirl, but we will just pretend that the two of them dated in the comics. Because why not?
When you get a chance, check out and like his Facebook Page over at: Long Island Red Hood. He is new to this and has a lot more costumes that he is developing as we speak. His style and look are beyond awesome and he has a lot of future cosplays to display.
Here’s a couple of other of Brendon’s awesome pics. He’s an awesome guy and I love hanging with him. Every time I see one of his new costumes, his skills just keep getting better and better every time. He’s currently starting to work out more and develop defined muscles to go with his next costume ideas. I’m curious as to what he’s going to come up with next.
