Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s the greatest holiday of the year! I love the costumes, I love the pageantry, I love the candy; I love Halloween! And every year for my blog, I do a list of the best superhero and villain Halloween costumes of the year. I usually break it down to women, men and children’s costumes, but I decided to just look at all costumes in general this year!
So if you haven’t got your Halloween costume picked out already, here’s your chance to see the best — and worst — that online Halloween costume stores have to offer! It’s not too late to change your mind either! You know you’ve always wanted to be Batman for Halloween. Or just owned a Batman costume in general…
Halloween is here again and it’s time to have some fun, my friends! Every Halloween, I scour costume websites to find the best and worst superhero costumes available. In case you didn’t notice, superheroes are kind of a big deal these days, and they’re perfect for my favorite holiday!
This year we’re tackling kids costumes, because Halloween is supposed to be about kids, right? To some extent? When I was a wee little lad, I would have loved to have superhero costumes as detailed and as awesome as those available today. Kids have it pretty great. And there have been plenty of movies and cartoons to make costumes from.
So join me after the jump to see the best and worst superhero costumes for boys and girls this year! You can also check out my previous list of kids costumes from a couple years ago.
I love Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday of the year! I love the pageantry, I love the costumes, I love the very idea that children walk the neighborhood collecting candy from friendly neighbors. Is there any more deliciously elaborate holiday? And who doesn’t love candy?
In the spirit of the holiday, I’m going to carry on my tradition of critiquing the best and worst superhero-themed Halloween costumes! Last year it was the women, and now we’re back to more male superhero costumes!
All of these costumes were found for sale on various Halloween costume websites. I tried not to repeat any costumes from the last list I did of male costumes. It helps that a ton of new superhero movies have come out since then! I don’t have any kind of official grading system. This list is based on what looks good, what looks accurate, as well as a few personal preferences. The point is to have the best damn Halloween costume possible!
Join me after the jump for the six best and six worst male superhero costumes this year!
