Superhero Costumes Infographic #DIY

Superheros are the Halloween rage this year but who wants to pay for an overpriced costume that you will probably only wear once? Not I! The solution: Take a few reusable clothing pieces, a bit of goodies from your craft clothes, place them together and bam you are ready for that spook night outing.

    I already bought my son a $20 iron man costume, which i think is a great price! amazon always offers great deals. a lot cheaper than the costume stores.

  3. Tanya White says:

    Omg I am so gunna make the Batman costume for hubby, He wanted to go look for one at the store this weekend, I was going to go buy one as much as I was against it because of the cost but now I can surprise him with this, very cheap too! Thank you this is so cool.

  4. You have the right idea. Why spend money on something that will be worn once? I love the costume ideas and easy to follow guide.

  5. alihaider says:

    What a fantastic good idea to reshape the old clothes into anew once! I indeed like it.Thanks for the idea.

  6. I love this. It makes it all look so much easier. Plus why waste your money on a cheap costume.

  8. alihaider says:

    This is so exciting. Amazon is in practice of presenting great deals with comparative prices than that of costume stores.Thanks for sharing lovely ideas.

  9. I’ll be wearing a pumpkin costume I made with orange sweatshirt, black felt, green pants and a green stem hat.

    When I was growing up we never went to ‘buy’ costumes for Halloween but instead had to be creative and use what we had around the house. Posting this was a wonderful idea.

  11. I’ll bet those turn out so much better than the store bought costumes. I’ve never been fond of those silly plastic masks and costumes.

  12. This is a great post! I feel like every year the costumes get more and more expensive and a lot of times, it’s not necessarily the costume but the acessories that are “sold separately.” DYI are so much reasonable AND you can have a lot of fun with it, it’s not so generic.

    I love your article on DIY super hero costumes. My son was really too old to dress up this year, but a lot of the moms in our cul-de-sac asked if he would take a lot of the 6 and older kids out trick or treating, so he wanted to dress up to take them. He ended up making a Rick Grimes costume from The Walking Dead. They all had a blast. I don’t know about these moms though — I loved taking my son out myself. I guess things have changed with some moms. I like handing out the candy this year.
