The most popular type of costumes for boys is usually the classic Boy Scout or Superman or Wonder Woman costumes, but there are other classic costumes that a younger boy can choose to wear. It just depends on what your child likes and where you shop. Below, we offer some of the top choices for your son’s next birthday.
One of the most popular choices for your boy’s costume will be the classic blue and white cape and Batman’s famous bat symbol. This costume comes with a hooded green cape and mask and is machine washable. Your child will have a great sense of adventure as he goes trick-or-treating, attending his friend’s bachelorette party, or just cruising around the block in his costume. He will love the way that he looks and feels when he goes out in his Batman costume, and his friends will love how cool he looks as well!
Boy Superhero Costume
Green Lantern is a favorite of many boys, and his love of saving the earth from villains makes him the perfect candidate for this superhero costume. A green hoodie worn over a t-shirt gives this costume a really nice, warm, fuzzy look. To top off this costume, attach a belt with a gold piece, and you have the perfect superhero. Green Lantern will stand out in any group, and he’ll get tons of respect from his peers. He’ll always be able to get the job done without being asked to do it, which is another plus.
Superheroes are often part of boys’ schools, so your little one can dress up as his favorite hero while still in school. Most of these costumes are fairly simple to put on because they are often based on previous comic book styles. However, you might find that you have some extra work to do to get the perfect look. Here are some of our favorite styles for boys who want to go beyond the traditional superhero look.
The Phantom is a superhero who flies. This costume comes in either blue or white. Your child will need a white or red jacket, but you can easily swap it out with a different color sweater. You can also use a pair of puffy sleeves or stockings to complete the look. Don’t forget the mask, gloves, and boots to complete this look, and your child will have the time of their life meeting and greeting all of their superhero friends.
A Much Ado
The Bat can be a great choice for a boy. He’s fast, he’s strong, he wears a mask, and he doesn’t have to worry about being hurt because no one will touch him. Any time a child wants to be a hero, this is the costume for them. One thing that you might want to consider is buying several masks to go with the different Batman styles that you choose. This will give your child lots of options when it comes to getting into the Batman persona.
The Green Lantern is a very popular choice. Kids love this superhero, and they can dress as a member of the Green Lantern family. They’re strong, they protect their home from evil, and they are very good at being a superhero! A true leader, this costume will keep children’s attention span occupied while they sit in the stands watching the game. If you want to be even more unique, you can combine the costume with a pair of pants and a belt, then go with a glove or a helmet to really dress up the character.
Spiderman has been around forever, but he’s just as cool now as he was back in his classic silver and black costume. Children love being superheroes, so let your kid be a superhero this year. Buy him a costume, then let him go crazy with it. Don’t let him sit there and wait for his parents to come along and give him his allowance. He knows he is a superhero, and when he goes out into the community, he is a hero in every sense of the word.
