Superman had humble beginnings as a comic book character that sold to DC Comics in 1938. Since then, Superman has been played by many actors in movies and not too long ago even had a show named Smallville that portrayed Clark Kent growing up as a teenager. Everyone has always had a sweet spot for the man in blue and red. The Man of Steel is a favorite among superheroes.
You can’t mistake Superman with any other superhero because of his signature red and blue outfit with the bold “S” on his chest. Cosplay Superman’s look with this Men’s Superman Costume, a Superman Deluxe Wig, Red Costume Boots that match his cape, and Superman Kryptonite Crystal Shards from his home planet, Krypton.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a Superman costume! You can never go wrong at a cosplay convention if you decide to dress as The Man of Tomorrow. This costume is great if it’s your first time dressing for cosplay or you want to go with a classic superhero character. Superman’s look is easy to recreate because you can find his costume pieces almost anyway since he is such a well-known character.
Start the costume with a Superman wig or any wig that is short, black wavy hair. Now, Superman wears a blue body suit with a belt at his waist. You can’t forget the red cape with matching red boots! The costume wouldn’t be complete without the bold “S” on your chest! You can find all of these pieces separately or find them already put together as an easier option. Now if you could only learn how to fly then you would have everyone fooled for sure! Send us a picture of your super cosplay when it’s complete. Check out the cosplay gallery for a little inspiration.
The Man of Steel didn’t always know he was a man from another planet. He grew up on a farm in Smallville with his adopted parents. While he was a young boy and throughout all of his human years, he went by the name Clark Kent. Clark grew up knowing he had special powers, but it wasn’t until after his childhood that he found out who he truly was—Superman.
Clark learned that he was from the planet Krypton and that his actual name was Kal-El. His birth parents sent him from his home planet all the way to Earth in hopes of rescuing him before Krypton was destroyed. Clark made it his mission to save humans on Earth while learning as much about his past life as he could. He kept his true identity secret from those around him. He even had many of his close coworkers and acquaintances fooled by his disguise as Clark Kent the writer for the Daily Prophet.
