This week’s family Halloween costume is the Avengers! I was so happy when the girls wanted to be superheroes and that they didn’t care whether they were girl characters or not. It would be nice to have more girl options, though. Ahem, Marvel. This was a pretty easy theme for me, since I’m already a huge Captain America and Avengers fangirl. What? I have to google Captain America pics? Dang it. I mean, all in the name of research.
Avengers Halloween Costume
That’s me. Since my daughter already called being Captain America, I had to be Cap’s bestie. I had a pair of black camo-like running pants, wore a long-sleeved black running shirt (I didn’t have the biceps for short-sleeved), and my black boots. I bought a wing accessory kit, and it even came with glasses. Easy and done.
My husband wore a Hulk compression shirt I already had from running the Avengers Half Marathon. We also bought some Hulk fists, naturally. I found a cheap pair of purple sweatpants from Walmart, and we cut them up to look shredded. I did not have much luck finding purple shorts last-minute. So you improvise.
We’ll start with her, because I loved this Thor costume so much, it went to whoever would fit in it. They only had small sizes left, so baby girl got to be Thor, and she loved it! We bought her a hammer and added gray leggings under her dress. She already had silver sandals.
That was a straight up Disney Store costume buy. We added a Captain America shield and black boots we already had. My daughter still wears that costume around the house.
That was a straight up Target buy. And thank you, Target, because my daughter was obsessed with Ant-Man, and I couldn’t find it anywhere else. Where’s the love for Ant-Man? He’s hilarious.
She was my pickiest, and she knew that she wanted this Black Widow costume. She already had black boots. Really though, Black Widow would be so easy to DIY. Grab black clothes, make a belt buckle out of craft foam, and add a S.H.I.E.L.D. patch.
This one was the hardest to put together, because of the color of blue she wears. We finally found a skirt and jacket at Macy’s in the Juniors department. I searched high and low at thrift shops and came up empty handed. I found a red fedora hat at Party City and added white and blue ribbon around the hat. I used an old water gun we had, because I didn’t want to spend the money on a toy gun. My daughter borrowed a white collared shirt from me and some heels. We added red lipstick, and bam! A sassy Agent Carter.
Our Avengers Halloween costume is in my top 2 favorite Halloween costumes my family has done. I just love how much my daughters’ personalities come through. Girls are superheroes!
