Picture of Practical Superhero Costume
Comfortable. Easy. Last minute.

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

Most well known and original heroes' costumes can be represented using only a few solid coloured elements. If you wear a matching colour shirt and pants/skirt, with a large logo in a contrasting colour on your chest you will look like a superhero. No spandex required.

Enhance this by adding boots and a belt, mask and/or cape.

BUT as Edna Mode said "NO CAPES!!" :-D

However, the cape does add to the SuperHeroness of the costume.
