Top 10 Halloween costumes
This list is entirely composed of superheros, because ever since I was young, I have only strayed from this genre once- when I was a pumpkin at 4. This is once again a personal list that does not reflect the views of this website.
10. Green Hornet
I consider his level of superheroness to be on the same as Batman, with less martial arts training and not as bright. Since the remake of the original Hornet, I would consider this to be up and coming in this season’s trick or treat fest. The cool green mask, green peacoat, and gas gun will cost you only around $45 dollars.
9. Bruce Lee/Jackie Chan
Once again, they may not technically be superheros, but the things they did do make them heros. I’ve always thought it was fun to do spin kicks and make loud high pitched noises when standing on my head, so when I watched Jackie Chan’s cartoon show on Saturday mornings, I’d wake up my brother with a headbutt to the groin. I understand just putting on sweats and kicking doors down doesn’t make you Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee, so I’d suggest putting on a karate suit and some nunchucks.
8. Green Lantern
Personally my favorite superhero, the power to create anything, only limited by imagination. The Green Lantern movie, with Ryan Reynolds, didn’t turn out to be the smash hit I hoped for. However, I do believe it got people to think about the green superhero more, so if you want to put on a tight green suit, green mask and a ring, then this is the perfect costume.
7. The Flash
I think many people enjoy this superhero but think that there is not much to do with a superhero whose only power is super speed. The costume itself is one of the better ones in my opinion, though. Being one of the lesser picked costumes, it will most likely be on sale.
6. Danny Phantom
A Nickalodeon superhero who fought ghosts, and who himself was a ghost. His powers were pretty diverse, and his costume wasn’t so outrageous. I can relate to him, being the same age, so he’s a pretty unique costume to wear.
This hero has never gone out of style. Since I’ve been alive he’s been one of the most popular superheros around, doing well in comics, in movies, and relating to people of all ages. The movies helped him become a national treasure. With another series of Spider-Man movies soon to come, the fame is sure to return.
4. Iron Man
I was not a big fan of Ironman, until I watched Robert Downy Jr portray him- funny, sauve, and smart. I believe kids will love being able to put on a robot mask. The ability to pretend to shoot electrical shots from their palms is going to make this costume a giant success. Also, being able to do the robot.
Logan (I share that name with this superhero) is widely renowned as the biggest superhero currently. He has outgrown his X-Men counter parts and has had his own comics and movie. The costume is one of the most fun- by strapping on some claws, and a cool yellow mask, you’re able to growl all you want without social repercussions.
2. Star Wars characters
To call the Jedi force superheros is an understatement, so to come in second place I believe those who think they aren’t superheros should be greatful. The main things to remember about being a Starwars character is that the color of the lightsaber you pick will define who you are, unless you are Darth Vader, Yoda, Hon Solo, Princess Leia, and Bubba or Jenga Fett in which all have costumes.
This is obviously the epitomy of superhero halloween costumes- the cool mask, the awesome body suit, the gadgets. I remeber for three straight Halloweens this was my costume of choice. The fourth year I had grown too big, and after much fuss chose a ninja. I put Robin in the mix because I feel like there are those who want to go as a group and being sidekick for a night, you’ll get the same amount of candy. Batman will cost you around $55 and Robin about $50.
