Some of the most popular costumes for teens most years are superheroes, especially the ones from the Avenger movie franchise. Also popular are costumes based on the Star Wars movies.

But, the most popular superhero costume this Halloween is based on the all-American boy next door appeal of Captain America. The Captain America Winter Soldier Stealth Costume is an in-demand costume, so get yours early before they sell out!

Because this costume is so well loved, it’s a strong possibility that the costume shops and retail stores won’t have this one, so be sure and check online shops. This is a jumpsuit that’s made of 100% polyester and has to be hand washed.

The material is comfortable and durable but is thinner to allow for ease of movement. Because of this, you might consider wearing some clothing underneath it especially if you’re going to be outside and it’s cold.

The bottom of the suit is a pair of pants with durable stitching in the hem as well as in the seams. At the waist of the jumpsuit is a brown belt design that features a silver buckle.

The top of the jumpsuit is a long sleeved shirt. The top of the shirt is padded so this gives the illusion that the wearer has a superhero type muscled torso. What a lot of buyers love about this costume is that it has the muscle look without being overdone the way that some costumes can be.


So you’ll be able to move around with ease while wearing this one. At white star is at the neck of the top. On each side of the star, there are gray stripes. These stripes extend from the shirt down onto the sleeves.

On either side of the star, there are also two brown straps with buckles designed onto the material of the top. It’s easy to put this costume on and take it off thanks to the velcro fasteners in the back of the costume.

There is a mask with this costume. This one is a form fitting skull hood that has the Captain America A in the center of it. There are small openings for the eyes as well as for the ears.

The red and white striped shield with the white star that Captain America carries does not come as part of this costume. However, you can buy this as a separate piece when you get the Rubies Captain America: The Winter Soldier Retro Costume Shield.

2) Green Lantern

The Green Lantern movie has created renewed interest in these famous comic book characters. The Green Lantern costume is, not surprisingly, all green and lit up on the chest. But to really complete the look, you’ll want to get hold of the ultimate weapon: the light up Green Lantern ring. Why not team up with a few friends and go as Hal Jordan, Kilowog and Tomar Re?

3) Black Swan

The Black Swan movie wowed audiences in 2010 with its stunning choreography and uncomfortable psychological themes. For Halloween 2011, why not choose to dress as the dark side of yourself, in the form of the Black Swan? This costume plays on the traditional ballet outfit – it’s all in black with the distinctive black feather makeup over the eyes.

4) Tron Legacy

The 2011 Tron Legacy movie took the original Tron costumes to the next level, with futuristic light up suits. Although it might not be easy to make your costume light up for Halloween, you can still recreate the general look with a black jumpsuit and some reflective tape. You can’t fail to impress people in this costume from a virtual world.

5) Sucker Punch

We chose to include the Sucker Punch movie for the fifth spot simply because it finally provides some excellent costume inspiration for women! Most main characters are male, as are the officially licensed costumes available to buy. Although women can choose to adapt the male costumes, choosing a theme like Sucker Punch gives you a lot more to work with. The dancers in this movie are excellent at fighting, and all have unique feminine, yet tough, outfits for you to choose from.
