How To Choose The Best Iron Man Halloween Costume
You can bet that Iron Man 2 Halloween costumes
are still going to be huge this Halloween. Halloween is fast approaching
and if you plan on going to a Halloween party as Iron Man 2, or if your child loves Iron Man and wants
to go trick or treating as Iron Man 2, it is important to do some planning now so you aren't left out. Here's some ideas for
you to toy with.
First, is it for an adult or a child? Let's face it. An adult who is planning to wear the costume
to a party has a different set of concerns than does and parent who is worrying about the safety of his or her child while
they are out trick or treating. The thought here is that the adult is concerned about having the most authentic and cool costume
available while the concern for the child is one of safety.
With kids costumes, you need to make sure they have plenty of room to move as well as making sure they
have good visibility for wandering around the neighborhood at night. Their mask needs to make it so that he or she can see
clearly... their vision should not be blocked. Also, if there isn't any on the costume, it is smart to put some reflective
tape on both sides to make sure they are easily seen by cars.
Most children will be wearing the costume during a cool autumn night. You want the costume to be big
enough so they can wear their warm clothing underneath. Nobody wants to hide their costume under a coat or sweater, so that
stuff should be worn underneath to keep them warm, and possibly dry.
The beauty of an Iron Man 2 costume is that it
lends itself to be used as part of an ensemble. A group Iron Man theme is easy to accomplish. You might have someone dressed
as Tony Stark without the costume, someone else as War Machine and another as Black Widow.
There are lots of ways to do a "group" costume without having more than one of the same characters.
If you are planning to throw a Halloween party this
year, then how about a Super Hero theme for the party? This would give people more opportunities than by sticking to Iron
Man specifically, but it would no doubt be one of the more popular costumes since the movie was released this year.
you buy or rent the costume. You've got a choice to make. Renting a costume sometimes means the quality of the costume will
be better than the one you could buy for a comparable price. I am a bigger fan of buying over renting. Why? I don't like the
idea that I am wearing used clothing that someone else has been partying in.
It really does pay off to shop around
before making a decision. You can find shops in your area that are dedicated to costumes. Watch out though, they are often
packed during the Halloween time of year. There are incredible choices in costumes online. Better selections
than you can find locally and you can get free overnight shipping and free returns.
Watch out for bargain
or cheap costumes. Remember, you get what you pay for. Some of the better
online retailers will let you check other customer reviews so you can see what others say about the quality. The quality is
often not very good on cheap costumes, and they may not hold up to normal wear and tear very well. Kids often will want to
ear their costumes around the house or neighborhood and not just on Halloween.
