Best Superhero Costume for Boys

This is an affordable costume that includes everything your kid needs to look like Batman. As an added bonus, the sizing is remarkably accurate. Who doesn't love that?

The polyester fabric is quite cheap and some reviewers were quite upset it doesn’t come with muscles like other superhero costumes.


You get a lot of bang for your buck with this Halloween costume. It’s a printed jumpsuit (no muscles) with an attached cape. And, that cape is wonderfully long. Some people find it a little too long, but most love that it's not just a short half-cape.

The mask is sturdily made from hard plastic; on the inside, there is foam padding which makes for a comfortable fit. The belt is on the flimsy side, but you should probably expect that for a Halloween costume at this price point.

One of the best things about this costume (besides the price) is the sizing. Many users report the sizing to be fairly accurate – which is a rarity for Halloween costumes. The other great thing? Kids fascinated by Batman absolutely flip when they get to wear this – and it seems to hold up well despite the thin fabric.

Rating out of five:

  • Originality: 2
  • Scare Factor: 0
  • Cuteness Factor: 3
  • Identifiable: 5

What's it made of? It’s a mix of polyester with polyurethane foam – and you shouldn’t expect much from it; the fabric is quite thin (as many Halloween costumes are). The mask is high-quality hard plastic with foam to keep it comfortable.

Will you need extra bits? If you want to get really specific, you can add a cape with a logo or the like. But, you can totally get away with this inexpensive costume.

Is it hand wash only? Hand washing is suggested, but there are a few parents that have managed to toss this in the machine without totally destroying it.

Will it break the bank? Nope. And, that’s one of the reasons we love it so much. You should pay less than $20 for this and everything that's included. Score.
