Last year I needed a superhero costume on short notice for a 12 hour, overnight relay. I wanted something that would be comfortable and warm, and this is what I came up with.

Step 1: The Game Plan
Enhance this by adding boots and a belt, mask and/or cape.
Step 2: Base
Start by finding a set of clothes to serve as base for your costume. Raid your closet or a thrift store for comfortable, colour coordinated clothes.
Go for solid, bright colours and clothes that fit tight to the body. Baggy clothes and any logos that can't be covered up will ruin the illusion.
Step 3: Accessorize
You will need:
- Felt (get creative and use an old fleece vest or blanket*)
- Basic sewing supplies (needle, thread, pins) and/or fabric glue
- Rubber bands or hair elastics
*Felt is easier to work with.
