1. Superman Tee Shirt
2. Long sleeve button front shirt, solid color is best
3. Denim jeans
4. Glasses (3D glasses from a movie theater work perfectly!)
To complete the Man of Steel costume, dress in the pieces of clothing mentioned above, buttoning the long sleeve shirt only a few buttons up from the bottom. Next, slick hair back with water and spray with hairspray to hold in place. Remove the lenses from the 3D glasses (simply pop them out), leaving just the frames and place on head. These black framed glasses work well and resemble the superhero seen in the TV series, Smallville.
Sure, one can purchase the standard Superman costume at a local retail shop or on Amazon.com, but isn’t it more fun to create your own outfit? Isn’t it also less expensive to build your own Halloween costume or character dress?! To save money, shop local thrift stores and garage sales for comic book t-shirts before heading to the retail stores (Wal-mart or Target, for example). Check your family closets for a pair of blue denim jeans, dress slacks and a long sleeve button front shirt.
