If you’re in the market for a new funny costume to make you look like a superhero for whatever occasion but don’t really know what to buy because you’re the type who reads James Joyce or something like that, then we’ll drop you the hint that Spiderman is always a popular choice. Everybody has heard of him and he has lots of fans, who will surely find something to their liking among our selection, whether they’re after an amazing cosplay costume or just dressing their kids for Halloween.
Disguise Spiderman Deluxe Child
This is a rather well made Spiderman costume for boys which comes in 2 sizes — a 10-12 husky and 11-14 large. You shouldn’t worry if your kid isn’t really on the chubby side (actually, you should be happy about that) because as we’ve gathered from reading customer reviews this 100% polyester piece can fit leaner children quite well.
While the fabric itself is entirely polyester, the hood and various shoulder and chest inserts intended to make the wearer look more like Spiderman than like a child wearing a red and blue overall, are made of foam.Click to see the price on Amazon!
Rubie’s Marvel Spiderman
This is more or less the “official” Spiderman costume, endorsed by Marvel Comics so it should be a safe bet for cosplayers who don’t want to put the time into making their own outfits. It’s available in 3 sizes, from medium up and is remarkably stretchy, so it can provide a tight fit.
The colors are very bright, taking after the classic Spiderman look from the early comics, so there’s no risk of looking drab among other colorful cosplayers. The downside to this is that the costume isn’t really machine washable, but then again, you’ll probably only be wearing it a couple of times a year.Buy from Amazon.com for ($37)
Dressy Daisy Boy’s Halloween
This Spiderman suite is aimed at smaller kids and has a number of features to accommodate their particular needs. The mask has wide eye slits and a mouth slit so it won’t feel constraining to a small child. It’s a 2-piece with pants and a shirt, so it’s as easy to put on as a pajama.
In fact, this costume might see a lot of use as such, since it stands loose enough on the body for day to day comfort. Furthermore, people who bought it comment that it’s true to size so the measurements you’ll be looking for will correspond to those of regular clothes.Buy from Amazon.com for ($18.99)
Wraith of East Venom Black
No one can deny that as a child he or she might have sometimes found Venom to be way cooler than good ol’ spidey. Of course, there is merchandise out there to satisfy this dark streak and the Wraith of East costume we’ve looked at appears to be among the better ones.
It’s made of Spandex, so it should fit kids of multiple sizes and even allow you to use it in consecutive years for Halloween. The eye slits offer good visibility and the mask is a one-piece with the rest of the outfit. In true full bodysuit fashion, it also has attached shoes.Buy from Amazon.com for ($39)
Wraith of East Spiderman
Very similar in all other respects to the Venom bodysuit from the same manufacturer, this one is intended for the kid who can’t bring himself to associate with a bad guy. Otherwise, it is made of the same spandex, this time colored a bright red and blue, and the mask and shoes are attached to the costume for that full bodysuit feel.
The eye slits are easy enough to see through and the costume provides a good degree of comfort, but it does hang rather loosely, which some people might not appreciate.Buy from Amazon.com for ($48)
Wraith of East Black Bodysuit
We don’t remember the Spiderman animated series so well as to tell what exactly this black Spiderman costume is supposed to represent, but it does look cool enough to impress a kid under 10. On top of that, it is a full bodysuit, meaning the mask, gloves, and shoes are stitched to the overall; a concept that children seem to be taken with.
However, as many users have reported, it might not resist all that well to regular use, as the quality of the stiching isn’t the best. However, it should hold up well to being worn for special occasions, such as Halloween or birthday parties.Buy from Amazon.com
Rubie’s Iron Spider Ultimate Deluxe
This product looks like a cross between Spiderman and Ironman which we’re not really sure if it fits any cannon. It’s been endorsed by Marvel Comics, however, so if your child is a fan of both super-heroes you might as well hit 2 birds with one stone and buy this item.
It features high definition printing and a lot of soft padding, to turn a child into a veritable robot-suited arachnid superhero. The overall quality of the piece is reported to be good, but multiple users noted that the mask sometimes fits too tightly for comfort, but you can always buy a new one from a local store, as this one is detachable.Buy from Amazon.com for ($27.37)
Red Plume Men Cool Dry Compression
This is more of a Spiderman themed long sleeve shirt rather than anything else, and it will provide great use for those who don’t want to go with a full bodysuit to conventions and other such events. Since it’s pretty thin and comfortable, with excellent elasticity, it could also be worn around the house or the gym, or as casual everyday attire for repelling girls.
It is made out of 86% polyester and 14% recycled polyester fabric, so besides alluding to your favorite superhero, you will also be saving the planet a little by purchasing this item.Buy from Amazon.com for ($25)
How to find a cool Spiderman costume
Whether you’re a kid or a fully grown man and you happen to love comic books or superhero movies, it’s almost impossible not to have heard of or even know about Spiderman. If Peter Parker were real, he certainly would have been grateful to that weird spider that bit him, turning him into one of the most renowned and loved comic book characters of our time.
Therefore, it really comes as no surprise that Spiderman is not only among the most popular themes adopted by clothes designers and whatnot these days, but also a perfect choice for a costume when Halloween comes around. Is there any bigger joy for a Spiderman fan, be he a kid or an adult, to dress up as his favorite superhero during this celebration?
We believe not. That is why we have undertaken the task to provide you with some important insights on how to search, analyze and buy the perfect Spiderman costume for Halloween. Our reasons don’t stem from generosity alone; while the multitude of Spiderman costumes on the market is explainable by what we have stated above, it can get a little tricky, if not really difficult, to select and purchase one for your personal needs and tastes.
How we chose the coolest Spiderman costumes
With it being as popular, if not even more popular than, say, a Batman costume, a Spiderman one is relatively easy to find. The most obvious place to start looking is, of course, the Internet. Sites such as Amazon are sure to have outfits of this type in stock during the days preceding Halloween, and you’re guaranteed to spend a bit of time looking for a costume that fits your preferences.
Also, be sure to check out the stores and supermarkets in your area, not just around the end of October, but even when the next Spiderman movie hits theaters in your town. The promotion campaign should provide a stimulus for said supermarkets to boost their sales by including at least Spiderman outfit accessories, if not full costumes, among their wares. So next time you see an offer for the best spiderman costumes for sale, don’t hesitate. Your inner child (or real one, should it be the case) will be forever grateful.
When and where to wear your cool Spiderman costume
It’s really a no brainer as to the opportunities you or your child could get to wear that cool new Spiderman costume: either a mask or costume-themed party at/for someone’s birthday or…yes, you’ve guessed it, Halloween.
It’s also important to distinguish and separate clothes that have the logo or Spiderman’s face on them, meaning they can get decent wear occasions all year round, and the actual Spiderman costume movie replica, which, unless you have his powers and abilities, you can’t wear as often as you’d like.
A spider’s fit
For a Spiderman costume, the fit is quite important, given that the comic books and the movies present you a spandex-clad superhero, whose muscles and features are accentuated by the fit of a relatively tight outfit.
Of course, the actors depicting Spiderman weren’t probably too comfortable wearing it, but that definitely shouldn’t apply to you or your child for Halloween. It’s important that whoever wears such a costume for this celebration has a good time and feels at ease with the choice he’s made.
Concerning this aspect, we would recommend that if you go out and buy Spiderman costumes, you try on as many of them as possible, choosing the one which fits you best and irrespective of the price tag. It goes without saying that a price tag that’s too big for some would apply only to hardcore Spiderman fans.
Big Spiderman vs. little Spiderman
Buying a Spiderman costume firstly means taking into account the age of the person who will be wearing it. The gender choice should be quite clear, given the fact that such a costume is addressed to boys and men. Not that a girl wearing it would pose a problem; many young girls have a pronounced boyish side to them at a certain age, with some retaining it their whole lives, even.
But, logically, the age of the wearer is crucial for determining the size of the costume to purchase. With the subject of fit being touched upon above, we would also like to stress here the importance of a well-made Spiderman costume. It’s quite possible that you find spandex and cotton versions of this outfit, inflatable or not, but it’s ultimately up to you to choose the material you or your child feel the most comfortable in.
Once you got this covered, try to pay attention to the sewing or manufacturing details for your chosen costume, so as to determine its degree of durability. A Spiderman costume breaking at the seams on Halloween night is never funny or entertaining, unless you’re going for the “superhero in misery” vibe.
As for the general design, the almost overwhelming majority of Spiderman costumes come in the classic design of red and blue, with the black shaped white eyes. The only elements that would differentiate the design aspect would be the presence or absence of Spiderman’s outfit gloves, or the lower half of the face being revealed, in certain cases.
Fortunately (or not, depending on how complex a look you wish to obtain on Halloween), a Spiderman costume doesn’t come with any accessories. Keeping in mind that the web he shoots appears from the suit’s hands, it’s somewhat logical not to have an accessory.
On the other hand, the look of the costume alone is quite impressive, especially if you find a good one, which fits you perfectly and is made of quality spandex. Therefore, you don’t really need to have accessories for your Spiderman suit.
To sum it up, choosing a Spiderman suit for Halloween can be a good decision. Even if one (or more) of your or your child’s friends might want to wear it as well, you could gain the upper hand by finding yourself a cool and quality-made replica, which would attract the admiration and envy of your other Spiderman-clad friends.
