A Superman Costume Is More Popular Than Ever This Halloween

Oct 8, 2007
Superman is a popular comic and movie hero developed in the 1930's by Joe Siegal and Joe Schuster. The Superman costume and concept evolved in many forms, but his current look came about somewhere in 1934.

The original idea of Superman from the early 30's made Superman a villain. But in 1934 he was no longer a villain and the costume that included the blue tights, the giant S, and the red cape, was conceived. Though his character's costume experienced minor changes through the years, the basics are still the same.

Intrigue of Superman

Superman is appealing for every age. The character spans multiple generations so great grandparents to young children are familiar with the character. Superman is not one of those characters that is unknown by the parents.

There's an air of intrigue surrounding Superman. This makes him a popular choice when it comes time for Halloween or a costume party.

The Superman Costume

The Superman costume is one of those that can be easily made, rented, or purchased in a department store. You can even find vintage Superman costumes in stores or on the internet. His look hasn't really changed over the years, though there have been slight modifications - the size of the S on his chest, the shade of blue, etc.

Superman Costume Accessories

There are a few essential accessories that are part of the Superman costume. First, what would he be without his signature red cape? You also need the characteristic belt with the S-logo buckle.

What about Clark Kent?

If you want to really have fun as Superman, also bring a bag filled with a Clark Kent costume. In order to really do the Superman character justice, dressing up like Clark Kent will offer a fun twist to the evening. Dress up occasions where you actually get to be the character in its entirety are often the most memorable.

And remember, for Superman, Clark Kent is actually the "costume" - the blue and red outfit are his real clothes. He "dresses up" as Clark Kent.

When you wear your Superman costume, it is more fun to completely play the part. Of course, you can find a costume and just be yourself through the evening, but where's the fun in that?
