Ah, Comic Con. If you’re a veteran, the pressure is on for a costume, and if you’re a newbie, it’s actually a similar situation. With friends, acquaintances, and maybe even frenemies coming out of the woodwork, you need to dress to impress. May we suggest Spirit Halloween for Comic Con costumes?
Naturally, we suggest stopping by the Superhero section first. The site has you covered, with tons of variations on a theme, in addition to lots and lots of character looks. And if your budget is tight, the site still brings it, because we saw looks starting at just $25 (and you can even apply a 20% off coupon to that purchase to cut it down even more!).
Without further ado, here are some of our top picks for Costumes for Comic Con:
Got cash to splash? This is the perfect costume for maximum impact and minimal effort, but it comes at a price. Our suggestion? You only live once, so grab it, wear it, and then rent it out every year after to minimize the pain to your wallet.
Significantly more affordable than Transformers, this costume is an obvious draw. The face paint requirements are relatively easy, and guess what? It’s also included in your costume kit. If you’re a lady looking for something more feminine, try the 1960s Batgirl Theatrical Costume, which is as jaw-dropping as it is low-maintenance.
Comic Con or not, some people hate the feeling of wearing too many layers or too much makeup. If you fall into that group, we recommend the “anti-costume” -- the “Party Suit”! Festooned with logos (and with a rather sharp silhouette), these suits make a statement while avoiding all the complications of other costumes.
Going with a group and can’t decide on what to wear to Comic Con? The good thing about Power Rangers getups are that everyone gets a cool color, you can tell your friends apart, and the price is definitely right.
A word to the wise
If you’re not costume-specific, I have a feeling you’re going to strike it rich. There’s a whole pre-Halloween clearance section of wigs, intriguing theatrical makeup, and accessories that can help a creative person go from Plain-Jane to “Holy Toledo!” And if you’re up for saving even more money, look for costumes with your friends, pool your resources, and get the items you’re selected sent with expedited shipping.
