The Amazing Spiderman is one of the best loved of all of Stan Lee’s creations. Everyone can relate to the ordinary nerd suddenly gifted with superpowers after a bite from a radioactive spider. Spidey’s agility, super strength and spider sense have made him a fan favorite all over the world.

It is no wonder then that the Spiderman Halloween costume has been a mainstay for years. Everybody loves your friendly neighborhood Spiderman. The costume, like the character, has had many incarnations over the years. Spiderman fans are familiar with Carnage and Poison, alternate and evil versions of the webbed hero.

Spiderwoman, of course, is a huge hit with women. The all-black Venom outfit is another sure win for kids, adults and teenagers.

The Spiderman costume is essentially a body suit covered with cobwebs, normally made out of spandex. The costume is blue from the waist down, except for the calf-high boots which feature black cobwebs against a red background.  The torso is mostly red, except for the sides, back and arms.

A red spider logo takes up most of the back area with the legs reaching around the ribcage. The black spider logo is placed in front.  The costume covers the body completely to give Spiderman maximum flexibility when battling foes.

Spiderman costumes would not be complete without his mask. The mask’s most distinguishing features are the black rimmed white lenses. There is no opening for the mouth because the hero uses his mask to mask his voice.

Spiderman costumes have evolved over the years but the basic design remains the same. One of the perennial favorites is Spiderman’s black costume. Instead of the red and blue design, the costume is all black. The spider logo was switched to white for contrast. This design has been around since the 1980s. The Venom costume has the exact same design.

The Spider-Woman costume retains the same original red and blue pattern as the original but in the form of a sassy dress. Instead of the full face mask, hide your secret identity with an eye mask and party the night away. Swap the leggings for red or black boots for a sexy effect.

Finish off your Spiderman costume with a couple of web shooters and some acrobatic poses.

Spiderman Background Information

Spiderman informationWhen Spiderman was created in the 1960s, even Stan Lee was not sure that the comic would be a hit. But much to his surprise, The Amazing Spiderman turned out to be one of the longest running and best selling comics of all time. Fans loved the fact that Spiderman was really just an ordinary guy, that he had money problems, that despite his superhero status, he had a hard time getting the girl.

The original design for Spiderman was rejected by the publishers because they thought he looked too much like Captain America. The color scheme and costume pattern were similar heroes of the day. The creators made sure that no one could see Peter Parker’s face, to keep his identity secret. The suit was also designed to hide equipment like his web shooters.

The Spiderman costume was then designed to be completely different from the other. Over the years, Spiderman’s costume has survived largely intact despite the many different versions out there.

Spiderman Movies and  TV Shows

Peter Parker actually draws up and sews his own costume and this is the scene that has stayed in the minds of movie goers for years.

A successful film franchise and several TV shows including an animated hit continue to keep Spiderman in the spotlight. Because he is so popular, Spiderman is actually Marvel’s mascot and listed as number 5 in the top comic heroes of all time.

As well as the dozens of comics like the Spectacular Spiderman, Spiderman has endorsed everything from candy to cola. He has been featured in crossovers with other veteran heroes like the Hulk and the X-men. There is a reason why Spiderman costumes are so popular and is has something to do with the fact that the hero himself is so easy to identify with. And he is just cool.
