On Halloween, all heroes do wear capes! It’s just more fun that way. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best DIY superhero Halloween costumes so you can make or buy a cape of your very own—and rock it on October 31. Save the day (and the night!) with our all-time favorite ideas for both male and female superhero costumes, plus a few scheming villain looks for good measure. If you happen to have pushed your costume decisions all the way to the last minute, there’s no need to worry: You can still make some superhero magic happen. The truth is, all you really need to make many of these get-ups is a cheap Halloween mask or a cape made from a few swatches of old fabric. Meanwhile, plain old tape and foam can transform a regular, everyday outfit into a Captain America outfit—just in the nick of time. And if you’re cutting it even closer to the time of your annual Halloween party and don’t have time to scout out an awesome sidekick, we’ve got ideas for that too: Coax your family pup into wearing a matching outfit for the most loyal co-hero around! From Wonder Woman to Superman, kids and adults alike will ooh and aah over these fabulous costumes.
