Female Superhero Costume Ideas for Women
A few years ago, there may have been only a few female heroes for fans to emulate. But that is most certainly not the case anymore! With superheroines starring in live action movies directly inspired by comic books, as well as all kinds of new science fiction and action flicks, there are plenty of great role models out there to emulate. Check out some of our favorite choices of costume ideas for women. They're all very popular characters and costumes, and any one of them would be a great choice for an action packed Halloween!
Wonder Woman Costume
Wonder Woman has been a comic book star since roughly, oh, 1944, but it took her 70 some odd years to finally get a movie of her own! (Thanks Gal Gadot, we're looking at you!) If you'd like to emulate this modern version of Princess Diana of Themyscira, this deluxe Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman costume is a really great choice. With an armor plated design inspired by Greek armor of antiquity, we're sure you're going to look fantastic as the Amazing Amazonian. Upgrade your look with the movie replica sword and shield, and you'll be ready to go toe-to-toe with whatever threats imperil planet Earth!
Black Widow Costume
Black Widow had been an Avengers hero in the pages of the comics for many years, but when Scarlet Johansson brought her to life in the Marvel Avengers movie franchise, well, the world had never quite seen a lady who can kick butt like her! We'd suggest going in this costume to really up the ante on your own heroic deeds. Agent Natasha Romanoff is a trained lethal killer, and you can emulate her style with this wet look jumpsuit costume. Add her signature red wig if you don't have red locks of your own, and you'll have Black Widow's style down pat!
Who doesn't love Supergirl? She's made a big splash on The CW with a hit show, and even if you'd rather call her Superwoman or Kara Zor-El, we're sure you'll be a fan of getting into this fantastic costume. The sleek and modern look of this dress costume borrows plenty from the classic look of the character, but we think you'll be ready to stand boldly to defend human kind against all kinds of peril. Grab this costume, and when the cape flutters in the wind, we're sure you're going to feel capable of saving the day!
Black Canary Costume
Fans of the hit The CW show Arrow know that there's more than one character who can kick a little butt on the show. In fact, we'd go so far as to say that the Black Canary is even tougher than the titular character! When you're heavily versed in martial arts and know a thing or two about tactics as well, we're not at all surprised that you're going to be saving the day. This signature costume is inspired by the show's look, and it's ready to let you become a DC Comics crime fighter. Grab a bo staff and get ready to beat up the baddies with this black costume!
Spider Woman Costume
Spiderman has quite a famous rap, but maybe you're all about Spider Woman? The character Jessica Drew became this hero who's been affiliated with the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D., and her superhuman strength has been an asset to whichever team she's helping out. You can go on your own mission with this cool costume. The shine finish suit has a spandex blend to perfectly capture the comic book character come to life look. Use your newfound powers to save the day for your costume group or just to rule the party. Everyone's going to get to know the name Spider Woman in a hurry!
Of all X-Men Storm Costumes, this one has to be our favorite. Her signature look from the 2000s, you can grab this costume to take command of the skies! Storm loves to fly and use thunder and lightning to help the X-Men defeat their opponents, and while this Storm costume doesn't come with the power of flight, we're sure you'll have a little extra mutant flair when you rock it. Stand tall and team up with Wolverine or your bestie in a Rogue costume, and you'll be ready to save the day. Just remember to pose your arms like there's a big time storm brewing!
Superhero Costumes for Girls
You might be looking to make a big splash at your annual Halloween get together, but if you're shopping for a younger lady, she might just be looking to save the day while out trick-or-treating or to go all out for a dress up day at school. And we think that's a great idea! Youth is the prime time to instill the traits of heroic role models in a young lady, so check out these costumes to give them a taste of the superhero life. After all, if they commit to their education and training, they'll be able to grow up into the next generation of female superheroes!
We can't ever ever get enough pink, and we think it's just about time superheroes start to wear our favorite shade too. And that's why we think pink Supergirl costumes are a really great idea! This adorable pink costume will let her become the famed hero of Metropolis, but she'll be pretty in pink too. With classic styling combined with modern touches, this costume is sure to become one of her favorites!
Harley Quinn Girl Costume
The hottest line of the year is most definitely the DC Superhero Girls. And in this incarnation of the classic DC Comics characters, Harley Quinn is a teenager so she's not even a villain yet! Your girl can be this younger version of Gotham's bad girl with this popular costume. She can team up with her friends as the whole Super Hero High gang, or just make sure Harley ends up supporting good deeds and not a life of crime!
Super Hero Tutu Costume
Sure, she can soar high above the city ready to save the day, but can she do it in a tutu? Of course she can! Okay, so she can't really fly or harness the powers of our yellow sun, but that's no reason she can't be tough, brave, and a little cute to boot by choosing this kid's Supergirl costume. With a touch of glitter and a tulle skirt, she'll have the super style worthy of the shield on her chest!
Is she ready to save the day in Gotham City? Is she ready to do it in purple? Then she's going to love this costume! Out of all Batgirl costumes, this one inspired by the 1966 television series is our tip top favorite. The velvet finish is downright superhero chic, and with the yellow accents on the cape, wrists and boot covers; it's an awesome throwback style that's really perfect in any era. She'll be ready to battle all the baddies with this costume.
Sexy DC Comics Costume Ideas for Women
Female superheroes aren't just known for kicking butt, they're awesome at that, but they're generally pretty well renowned for having some sizzling sex appeal too. Sure, perhaps it was intentioned just to appease male fans, but that's no reason not to own it and show off your appealing style. Check out some of these costumes to add a sexy touch to Halloween!
Sexy Supergirl Costume
She can soar through the skies and defeat any villain who's threatening the day, but she can also look damn good doing it too! Supergirl really can do it all, and now you can as well with this costume. With a wide scoop neck and short cut metallic dress, we'd have a hard time finding any fan who wouldn't describe this look as sexy.
Sexy Batman Costume
Bruce Wayne is always brooding and hiding out in the shadows as Batman, but you won't have to do any of that when you go as Batwoman. Sex appeal with the utility belt to match, this sexy dress costume has a wet look finish and it's sure to stop villains right in their tracks. Then, just tie up the baddies with your Bat-rope, and you can skip the scene in time to make your late night date!
Sexy Robin Costume
Who says Batman's partner needs to be a boy? We'd love to hop into the cockpit of the Batmobile with Bruce Wayne and go for a spin, so why not try this Robin costume for women? You're sure to catch Batman's eye at the big party, and before you know it, you're going to be side by side with him fighting to save Gotham City. The bad guys are never going to know what hit them!
Sexy Harley Quinn Costume
Harley Quinn took the world by storm in 2016's Suicide Squad, and now you can do this same at your party with this scintillating deluxe costume! Styled just after her appearance in the blockbuster flick, you too can go in the hottest costume of the season when you choose this style. Team up with a Mr. J of your own or just strike out solo to find your own partner-in-crime at the big party. We're sure whatever you do in this costume is going to be smashing!
Female Flash Costume
There's nothing better than being fast. Like super-fast! And that's what The Flash is all about. There's nothing about being speedy that's only in a boy's purview, and if you'd like a look that's as sizzling as it is speedy, then we're sure this sexy Flash costume will be just the ticket for you. With the red-on-red style of this getup, we think you're going to be zipping all around the dance floor all night meeting new people!
Villainess Costume Ideas
In the course of shopping for a superhero costume, maybe you've come to the conclusion that you'd rather just be bad this year. Maybe crime really does pay! If that's the case, then there's plenty of female supervillain costumes for you to choose from! Look to the Batman franchise for classic enemies like Poison Ivy, The Joker, or you could even pick out a women's Riddler costume! And instead of looking at Spiderman costumes for girls, we think a Venom costume would be a downright wicked choice! Whether you're looking to go on a wicked costume crime spree, or you just want to be the foil to your costume partner for the night, these comic book inspired looks will have you ready for all of the action!
Female Superhero Love Your Look
Getting the costume experience right isn't just something we preach; it's something we practice. And that's why when we're testing, photographing, and writing about our top selling costumes, we put in the extra effort to really bring the costume to life. It's what we like to call Love Your Look! We want to do whatever it takes to make sure your experience is top notch, and we're more than willing to go the extra mile. Check out some of these images from a recent photo shoot to pick up on the tricks of the trade that we use to bring both the costume and cosplayer to life. It's not just an industry secret anymore!
Love Your Look as Harley Quinn
So you want to go as Harley Quinn this year. But you don't just want to be Gotham City's number one bad girl, nah, that's not good enough for ya. You want to be the top renowned villain world-wide. We can respect that. In fact, we'd have to say we highly encourage it! You can take your Suicide Squad look to the next level with a little extra attention to detail and a few extra touches.
In this photo, you can tell that our model's not just excited to be Harley, she's downright estactic about it. (Well, maybe it's just all the jewels she's planning on getting her hands on from her next crime spree…) You can practice your own devious smile, but when you have the signature Harley Quinn Suicide Squad wig, you're going to want to make sure your facial expressions convey the not-so-deep thoughts of a certified mental case. Her makeup is on-point, just like Margot Robbie, and when the sequins catch the light just right and she holds the Harley Quinn inflatable bat at the ready, well, there's no way we'd try to cross this villain.
Love Your Look as Wonder Woman
Gal Gadot totally rocks as Wonder Woman, but for us, that vintage style is tried, tested, and true! We love reminiscing about Lynda Carter rocking the WW insignia in the 70s, or pouring over vintage comics for some of the most amazing moments from the Amazing Amazonian.
If you're anything like us, then we're sure you're going to really dig this classic long dress Wonder Woman Costume. Our model did, and she really loved that the dress and padded bust offered more coverage than some of the more revealing Wonder Woman costumes. With the polyfoam wristlets positioned just right on her arms, and the golden foam Tiara on her head she feels bold, powerful, and ready to kick some butt. Of course her mission is probably just going to the big party or watching over the little ones to keep them in line, but you don't always have to save the day when you go in costume. Sometimes, you can just enjoy the extra boost in confidence!
Love Her Look at Wonder Woman
The task of saving the day really should be left for the young and imaginative, so we're sure any young lady will love choosing from our selection of superhero costumes for girls. Most little ladies look up to Wonder Woman and this modern costume is styled directly from the latest DC Comics movie universe. She'll be able to look up to Gal Gadot and her portrayal as the Amazing Amazon as a serious role model with this costume!
This Batman v Superman costume perfectly captures the iconic new look of Wonder Woman, and you can tell that our model got a serious boost of confidence from these threads. A step down from the full armor set worn by Gadot, this simple costume still carries all the right costume cues with wristlets, armband and a tiara. You can tell that she's ready to battle the worst-of-the-worst DC villains, even though she's probably going to be content just working on filling up her trick-or-treat bag. Best of all, when she has this costume, she can be serious, or just a fun modern hero. It'll be her call!
Love Her Look as Catwoman
Catwoman is all devious; sometimes a hero and sometimes a villain. If you've got a girl who can play that part to a tee, well, then it's time to introduce her to this classic Batman character. We all watched when Anne Hathaway stole the show in The Dark Knight Rises, and while we wouldn't exactly call her a role model, we think that her ever-capable demeanor is very much worth emulating!
She can become the legendary catburglar with this deluxe Catwoman costume. A knit armor print contrasts perfectly with wet-look vinyl accents, and when she dons the goggle enhanced eyemask, her identity will be safe and secure. Our model had so much fun as this classic character that she couldn't even decide if she wanted to be a hero or a villain. And that's how we like to play it, too, right in the middle! Arm her with this movie look for a truly memorable Halloween.
