So, now that Halloween is back in full swing, you may be trying to decide which Spiderman Halloween Costume to pick. Well, here we offer a couple suggestions for this popular costume choice. Remember, these costumes are very different than the ones typically worn during the holiday. So, if you are not familiar with these costumes and want a change of pace, consider going a little wild and seeing what you can come up with. Here are a few ideas for this year’s Spiderman Halloween Costume.
The first costume idea is a very sexy little black dress that is super formfitting and revealing. You can find a number of websites that sell these dresses, but be sure to shop around for the best selection. Make sure the neckline is high, and the hem is straight. Then, top off the look with Spiderman themed jewelry. A gold ribbon maybe included in your costume, or a Spiderman shaped hair clip. If you are short on time, you could opt for a basic black jumpsuit and glue on spider web legs.
If you are feeling a bit creative, you can transform this costume into something else as well. For instance, if you have a little boy who loves Spiderman movies, but isn’t quite ready to wear the costume yet, consider making his costume. Start by selecting a plain, solid color t-shirt, a dark pair of Jean pants, black socks, and a Spiderman themed belt. A headband or band may also be helpful. Then, attach a Spiderman themed Spiderman mask and you have your kid dressed in his favorite superhero’s costume!
While your little boy is focused on the movie, why not make him feel special by creating his own Spiderman Halloween Costume. For starters, his costume will need black sweatpants, black shoes, black socks, and of course, his favorite Spiderman movie theme! Along with these items, think about his personality and which part of Spiderman’s world he’ll be most interested in going to. Perhaps he wants to go to a science lab or some other building that is related to Spiderman’s adventure. This will make it easier for you to design his costume.
After purchasing his costume, you will need to choose a mask to attach to it. A large oval or heart-shaped mask will make this a very pretty look. You may want to make it more realistic by adding wires to his face so that he can actually breathe. This will be especially enjoyable for a little boy who will be spending a lot of time wearing his costume.
A large black belt will be an absolute must. You may want to purchase one that has elastic in the back so that your child can pull it down or adjust it as needed. A Spiderman costume will really look silly without any visible belt! The shoes should be black or dark. No brightly colored sneakers. Better yet, wear black Spiderman shoes that you keep in a box at home.
Of course, no costume will be complete without the signature black mask. If money is an issue, a cardboard mask kit may be your only option. These are easily found online and in dollar stores. They are easy enough to assemble that a child of about eight years old can do it.
And don’t forget the shoes. Kids love these! Search Halloween costume supply websites for Spiderman themed items such as black shoes and black socks. He’ll have all the accessorizing he needs to be the superhero he wants to be.
As a final word, be sure to spend plenty of time on the details of your costume. Every little detail counts when you’re making a costume like this. From the webbing between your knees to the splatters of ink that follow when your fingers get stuck in the shoes. Spend enough time on these aspects of your costume to give it a life, even though it’s just going to be one night. Kids will still be going wild when they see your masterpiece!
A wise person once said that creativity is the number one asset any crafts person has. Well, that is true. Your creativity is the single most important asset you will use in making this costume. Without it, you are doomed to fail. So make up your mind to let your imagination go wild and you will create a costume that no one will forget.
I would recommend picking up two or three of these books and learning how to make your own costume. You can choose the different head piece designs and body pieces that suit your personality. This will make your costume something truly unique and that no one else will have. Just make sure that the head piece and mask aren’t made from the same material as the other pieces and make sure you don’t glue them together or they won’t stay on. These are the basic details that will make your Halloween costumes unique and special.
