Spiderman Costumes Swing Into Popularity for 2012
Halloween is a little over a month away, and with big hitting movies packing our summer full of action, it’s quite clear what will be the most popular theme: the superhero costume. But whether you’re solidly in Camp Avengers or a fan of the Dark Knight, fans can all agree that The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and the new Spiderman movie costume was one of the big surprise hits.
If you’re still on the fence about who you’re dressing up as for this Halloween, consider our web head, brought to life by a new cast full of interesting characters.
The Amazing Spider-Man Plot
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is a young boy living with his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). It’s a story we’ve all heard before. What you haven’t seen, however, is the incorporation of comic character Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) into Peter’s school life. Like the comics, Gwen becomes Peter’s first love and partner as he takes on the Lizard (Rhys Ifans).
Spiderman is one of the youngest Avengers, a web slinging superhero with a sharp wit and sharper webs. It’s too bad we didn’t see him on the big screen with Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans (but hey, there’s always the next Avengers movie!). Still, the big difference wasn’t just the actors and Peter’s age – but the costume!
Spiderman’s New Costume
When the costume was first released, no one was quite sure if they liked it or not, but as it became fully articulated on the big movie screen, fans fell in love with the blue and red spider-detailed outfit that Peter Parker made. New Spiderman costumes feature darker colors (particularly the blues), yellow goggles, and Peter’s self-created web slinging apparatus in his gloves, a new factor in the movieverse.
If you’re going as Spiderman this year, make sure to get the details correct with gloves that have Peter’s web throwing contraptions.
Anyone can go as Spiderman this year, including couples and groups. With black Spiderman and Venom costumes popular, children can go as the good and bad Spiderman. Girls can go with sexy Spiderman dresses from the regular red and blue Spidey to the black Venom. Or go as Gwen Stacy, Peter’s first love and the one featured in the new movie. For a good antagonist costume, try out the Lizard with scaly details and frightening claws.
Choose wisely this year and swing into some action as the superhero Spiderman!
