If you want to let out your inner superhero this Halloween, it's all about Wonder Woman and Batman. Whether you are looking for a super-powered couples costume or just a way to be the hero your friend's Halloween deserves but not the one it needs, the two most iconic DC Comics characters (okay, Superman too) are the clear way to go this year. After Wonder Woman exploded into theaters, and with the team-up Justice League on its way, Wonder Woman and Batman Halloween costumes are going to be huge at any Halloween party you go to.
Though both comic book characters date all the way back to the 1940s, both Wonder Woman and Batman have received renewed interest in recent years thanks to their major appearances in the DC Cinematic Universe, as portrayed by Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck. Both characters received the DC movie studio's signature dark and gritty treatment in last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and this year they're teaming up again in Justice League, which will be released on Nov. 21. Of course, this comes after Wonder Woman smashed box office records all over the place this summer and became the most critically successful movie in the DC Cinematic Universe.
To unleash your inner Wonder Woman or Batman this Halloween, try these costumes:
1. Wonder Gal
Wonder Women Costume, $50, Party City
Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume is a bit different from the traditional comic book look. To get the updated costume, look no further than this recreation from Party City, which will set you back $50. That may seem a little pricey, but it actually comes with all the accessories you need to perfectly channel the Themysciran hero, including her headband, arm cuffs, gauntlets, and leg armor. All you're missing is the invisible jet (you can probably just tell people that it's parked outside).
Batman has famously gone through a ton of costume changes throughout the years, but today he's best known for the Batfleck look (the name given to Ben Affleck's portrayal of the Caped Crusader in recent films). A perfect recreation of this costume is available for $50 at Spirit Halloween, complete with a mask, cape, and some padded muscles.
3. Vintage Wonder Woman
If you're looking for a more traditional Wonder Woman costume (maybe you're more into the comics than the movies, or you just prefer the bright colors), eBay has got you covered with this iconic Wonder Woman look for only 16 bucks.
4. Vintage Batman
If you want a little more color in you Batman costume than the entirely grey and black Batfleck suit, you can always channel the hero's vintage roots with this ripped-from-the-comics costume with some purple and yellow pops. It's available for a discounted $34 at Costume Superstore.
5. Themiscyran Warrior Wonder Woman
Before Diana donned her red, white, and blue super suit, she was the member of a fierce tribe of warrior women who trained together on the hidden island of Themiscyra. To channel Wonder Woman's badass origin story, Walmart has you covered with her beach battle outfit from this year's Wonder Woman, and it's going for an affordable $34.
6. LEGO Batman
Justice League isn't the only Batman movie to come out in 2017 — earlier this year saw the return of a more comedic Caped Crusader voiced by Will Arnett in The LEGO Batman Movie. You can LEGO-ize yourself this Halloween with this recreation of the movie character, available for $30 from JCPenney.
These are just a handful of the many, many costumes Wonder Woman and Batman have had over their nearly 80 years of existence. You should have no problem finding the perfect version of these two heroes for you to channel this Halloween!
