We all know looking for a costume is a huge ordeal, and if you're like us, buying a store bought, cookie cutter costume, is well.... boring.
Don't despair here to rescue you (sense a theme here?)!. Here is your guide to creating a fun, unique, and inexpensive DIY costume for Iron Man, Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America for your little one. Enjoy!
Iron Man Boys Costume:
Think Red! Gather up red pants, red gloves, red shoes or boot covers from the costume shop, Iron Man Costume T-Shirt and an Iron Man Mask (if the hooded tee isn't enough for you). Pro Tip - buy some silver/gold duct tape and jazz up your pants and gloves to give a high tech feel!
Spider-Man DIY Costume:
Is your spidey sense getting stronger? Get yourself a Spider-Man Hoodie T-Shirt or Toddler Costume Hoodie and accessorize with blue pants, a mask if your little one requires it and some awesome Spider-Man boots/gloves. If you're really daring you can pick up those toys that shoot sillystring / spider webs.
The Incredible Hulk Toddler Costume:
Hulk Smash! This is a fun one and you may have some of these already (if your toddler is already a Hulk fan). Grab an old pair of Jeans or Jean shorts and cut them to give them a ripped look, add a Hulk shirt (with or without a hood), Hulk Hands, a cool wig and some green face paint. This is a fun one and super easy and inexpensive.
Boys Captain America Costume:
This costume can be a bit more involved if you're looking for a bigger challenge. Let's get the must-haves out of the way - the recognizable shield and mask. Now get creative - find/make yourself some fingerless gloves, over shoulder straps (maybe make out of an old belt?), boots and of course a branded Captain America Shirt.
