Super Hero Costumes Gone Wrong

Updated on January 8, 2015

Not all fancy dress costumes look good on those who wear them. What do you think of these examples?

Super Hero Costumes have become very popular fancy dress themes, especially when October comes around and people start to think about what to wear for Halloween.

Dressing up as your favorite Super Hero can be fun if you are going to a Halloween fancy dress party, but there are some people who shouldn't be seen in costumes like the ones you are about to see. I feel sorry for their pets as well, if they have dressed them up.

Just be sure that if you or your kids are going to dress in Super Hero Costumes for Halloween or for a Fancy Dress Party that you don't end up looking like some of these below.

I think that in some way everybody wants to be an invincible being with super powers who is capable of saving the universe, and this appeals to even the least macho of males. The power and muscular physique of a super hero also appeals to some ladies as well.

Not all people are built to be Super Heroes though. Even Clark Kent in his civilian clothes has nothing on the people you will see in this lens. Superman would have a heart attack if he were to see some of the attempts people made to look like him.

So be prepared for some of the most unlikely Super Heroes to appear on your screen.... enjoy... And next time you think it's time to don a Halloween Costume - think before you make a fool of yourself... Are you ready to turn into Superman, Spiderman, Batman or Wonderwoman...

Which Was Your Favorite Super Hero?

See results

Batman and Robin are two of the best loved Super Heroes.

This is a scene from one of the special Christmas episodes of the long-running British sitcom "Only Fools and Horses" in which Derek "Del Boy" Trotter and his brother Rodney enter a fancy dress contest as a popular crime-fighting duo, but run into some trouble along the way...

The scene shows them breaking down in their 3-wheeled Reliant Robin car in the early hours of the morning. Initially they don't want to get out of the car for fear of being seen, however they finally decide to make their way to a friends house nearby. Switch to a city official leaving work....

Well I will leave it up to you to watch this incredibly funny clip of a great British tv show to find out what happens next...

Some of the accents and slang may be a bit difficult to understand, just so you know.

Super Hero To The Rescue

DC Comics on eBay - DC Comics started the whole Super Hero craze.

While some DC Comics are still easy to find and relatively cheap, some of the older issues are very hard to find and are now very collectible. Maybe there is a DC Comic that has been listed on eBay just waiting for you to buy it now...

      Too funny! Okay, I know it's not kind to laugh at other people's errors in fashion judgment, but hey, it's superhero costumes - that's fair game, eh?

      What a cool collection, Wonderwoman is brilliant such a funny picture had me laughing from the intro. I'm pleased you included the only fools and horses clip, I must have seen it hundreds of times and it still has me rolling on the floor, one of the greatest comedy shows that has ever been on telly. I think I might start every day with one of your lenses.

      Did I ever tell you you sometimes have a weird sense of humor? But you probably knew that. I couldn't find a favorite but Elvis was the worst. You still seem to have a few You-tubes missing that would have been fun to watch. It was kind of painful to see Thor in action, lol. And thanks for blessing my Gitchee Gumee lens!
