Superman's powers were what made him, well, super! On his home planet of Krypton, he would have just been a regular Joe. But here on Earth our yellow sun gave him the ability to be "Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound..." And of course flight, invulnerability, super-speed, super-vision, super-hearing, super-intelligence, super-breath... the list goes on and on. That's a pretty exhaustive array of powers but we've come up with some ideas to let you convey your ability while in costume. Read carefully, practice, and employ these techniques. People will be in awe of your super style!
Superman was well known for his superpowers and one of his most famous was his heat vision. He can cut through metal, fry bad guys, and spot weld broken machinery. You can practice your heat vision pose by staring intensely at a fixed point!
As a non-kryptonite it's going to be hard to replicate Superman's super speed. You can, however, practice your starting stance. Hold your arms steady at your side like you are about to take off running after a nefarious thief. All of your fans will be so impressed they'll forget that you're not the real deal!
One of Superman's greatest traits was his super-strength. He was of course able to perform amazing feats that no human could replicate. You can augment your costume by taking stoic stances. Flexing your muscles will assure everyone of your Superman authenticity. Even if your physique is not particularly muscular you can still practice these stances for dramatic effect!
Superman of course used the power of flight to fight his foes and traverse great distances. While donning a Superman Costume won't give you the power of flight, you can practice your up, up, and away pose. Just put one fist in the sky, one at your side, and utter the iconic phrase!

A Superman costume is great for any situation, any event, any circumstance. But sometimes Superman is better off with a partner! There are three main women that crossed paths with Superman from time to time, so any of these pairings would make for a great couples costume.

Supergirl first appeared in 1959. As the last survivor of Argo city she was sent to Earth to be raised by her cousin Superman.

This is the perfect costume combo for a guy and girl who share a platonic connection!
When Superman paired up with Wonder Woman, they would become the ultimate crime fighting team.
