If you’ve not yet purchased a Halloween costume for your little boy and they’re a fan of the Marvel universe, Spiderman costumes are definitely something you should look into. The acrobatic web slinger is a firm favorite with young boys and they’ll love donning their very own ‘Spidey’ suit this October 31st.
Spiderman made his first appearance in 1962 and since that time has been a huge hit with kids. He started out in the comic books before transitioning to the TV screen as both a cartoon character and a live action hero. Between 2002 and 2007, Tobey Maguire gave the Spiderman character a new lease of life by bringing him onto the big screen and spawning three successful movies. The franchise was then re-booted and brought to the big screen again in 2012 with the lead role of Spiderman/Peter Parker this time being played by Andrew Garfield in the hugely popular The Amazing Spiderman. What this means for you as a parent is that Spiderman will never go out of style and will always be a timeless Halloween costume choice.
There are lots of different Spiderman costumes available which allow your boy to dress up as the hero himself or one of his many nemeses. If your child fancies being ‘Spidey’, he can choose from either the ‘classic’ Spiderman costume or the ‘amazing’ Spiderman costume. These two suits share many similarities including a red and blue full body jumpsuit, a web pattern design and spider style eye holes. However, if you take a closer look at the ‘amazing’ Spiderman suit, you’ll notice that it features a full blue wrap section on the warm (the ‘classic’ Spiderman features just a blue patch) and a finer, more detailed web design.
Alternatively, if your young boy finds dressing up as villains more fun, there are lots of options. Some of Spiderman’s most famous foes include The Green Goblin (with this costume featuring a green full body jumpsuit and a goblin shaped mask), The Lizard (with this costume comprising of a full body lizard costume complete with a tail) and Venom (with this costume bearing many similarities to the regular Spiderman suit but instead of being red and blue, it’s all black). However, if they have another Spiderman villain in mind, you should be able to find a suitable costume online or in your local costume store.
The best thing about choosing a Spiderman themed Halloween costume for your boy is that their use of this costume won’t be restricted to one night per year. Instead they’ll be able to use the costume at any fancy dress parties, during play dates or simply when they’re playing superhero at home. As a result, you’ll get superb value for money by going with a Spiderman costume and ensure that it gets much more than a single use.
