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.

Iron Man

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.

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.

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.
