Superhero Halloween costumes for children
I've recently been writing a lot of articles about Halloween costumes of all sorts, but one thing all my articles have in common is that they're about Halloween costumes for adults. In this article, I'm going to suggest some superhero costumes perfect for dressing your kids in this Halloween.

Why dress up as a superhero this Halloween?
So why get your child a superhero costume this Halloween? The answer is simple; they're great fun. Everybody has pretended to be their favourite hero at some point in their childhood (or maybe even during adulthood) and superheroes take this to the extreme. It's great fun running around pretending to save the world and battling your arch enemy, so check out some of the kids superhero costumes below ready for Halloween.
Favourite Superhero costume
Who's your favourite superhero for a Halloween costume?
Iron Man is extremely popular at the moment with the recent Iron Man and Avengers movies out and these are great costumes. One of the things that makes Iron Man such a great costume is that all the 'real' Iron Man is is a man in a suit, so your kids can really pretend to be the real thing in these fantastic Halloween costumes.
The Iron Man 2 version of the suit complete with mask and muscled torso.
More Avengers Halloween costumes
The Avengers make a great group Halloween costume with so many great characters to choose from. My favourite is Thor. What about yours?
This kids' Thor costume comes complete with a detachable cape. (Hammer not included).
This kids' Captain America costume comes complete with headpiece. (Shield not included).
You can also find children's Hulk and Black Widow costumes on Amazon.
Batman and Robin
An ever favourite combination for Halloween, Batman and Robin make the perfect costumes for two boys. There's only one problem; who gets to be Batman?
The below costumes are based on the 1960's TV show Batman and Robin, but you can also find more modern updates on the costumes if you would prefer.
Kid's Batman costume complete with muscled chest and Batman mask. A child's Robin costume can also be found on Amazon. Great for two people going to a party together, although they may have to toss a coin to see who ends up as Robin.
More DC Comics superheroes
DC Comics' most famous creations are Superman and Batman, but they are also responsible for creating superheroes such as Green Lantern, Wonderwoman, Robin, The Flash and Supergirl. All of these heroes can be found in child costume form on Amazon.
