Superman is a classic superhero and hugely popular with kids which makes him an excellent Halloween costume choice for young boys. The iconic red, blue and yellow costume design is instantly recognizable and sure to be a big hit with your child this Halloween.
As a costume idea, Superman is timeless with the hero first being conceived in 1933 and portrayed across a range of media formats (including comics, movies and TV shows) over the years. However, with the recent release of the movie – Man Of Steel, interest in Superman is at an all-time high, so there’s never been a better time for your child to dress up as this iconic hero. They’ll have hours of fun donning the famous suit, running around and re-enacting scenes from the movie.
When it comes to choosing a Superman costume for your boy, you have plenty of options. There are a range of classic Superman costumes on the market which feature red boots, a blue jumpsuit, red pants, a red cape, a yellow belt and the famous red and yellow ‘S’ logo on the front of the suit. However, if your child prefers the modernized Man Of Steel look from the movie, there are lots of costumes for that too. These costumes may look similar to the classic Superman costume but there are a number of subtle differences which include the suit being a slightly darker shade of blue and the removal of the yellow belt and the red pants.
Alternatively, if your young boy favors Superman’s nemesis – General Zod, there are plenty of costumes available which allow them to step into the shoes of this super villain. These costumes feature grey boots, a grey full body jumpsuit, a black cape, a grey belt and chunky body armor, allowing your child to perfectly replicate Superman’s rival. Many of the ‘Deluxe’ versions of the General Zod costumes also feature a mask complete with eye holes which looks just like the one Zod wears in the Man Of Steel movie after first arriving on planet Earth and adds to the overall authenticity of this Halloween costume.
One great thing about choosing Superman or General Zod as a Halloween costume idea is that your young boy’s use of these costumes won’t be restricted to Halloween only. He can wear it to birthday parties, fancy dress parties or even just for playing around the house. So if you’re child is a big admirer of the Man Of Steel, a Superman costume is an investment you won’t regret and one that they’ll look forward to wearing on Halloween and beyond.
