Looking for something with a bit of attitude? Then you can’t go past the Wolverine costume. Wolverine is the most popular member of the X-Men team and a fantastic Halloween costume choice for young boys. The iconic yellow costume and Wolverine claws make him instantly recognizable to children and if your child is a fan of superheroes, Wolverine’s definitely a costume that’s worth considering.
It was way back in 1974 that Wolverine first appeared in a comic book and has since become a firm fan favorite. He has also appeared in many cartoons and video games. In 2000 the movie X-Men was released and Hugh Jackman gave the character a new lease of life with his highly acclaimed portrayal of Wolverine. Jackman has continued to increase the popularity of this character with his appearance in the two X-Men sequels – X2 in 2003 and X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006, plus two Wolverine films – X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009 and The Wolverine in 2013. With this latest release, interest in Wolverine is at a high and now is a fantastic time to dress up as this character for Halloween.
There are two options when choosing a Wolverine costume – the black, blue and yellow comic book Wolverine or the more rugged, human like movie Wolverine.
The comic book Wolverine costumes are available in both basic and ‘Classic’ versions. The basic comic book Wolverine costumes include a full body jumpsuit with a black, blue and yellow design and a black and yellow Wolverine facemask. The ‘Classic’ comic Wolverine costumes feature a similar jumpsuit with faux muscles molded into the arms, legs and torso for a more realistic look. They also come with plastic claws and a more detailed facemask which allow your child to represent the comic book Wolverine more accurately.
Alternatively, the movie Wolverine look can be easily replicated with the Wolverine Wig & Necklace Kit and a set of Wolverine claws. A white shirt with black pants and a black zipper jacket will complete the costume.
The Wolverine outfit is not limited to Halloween. Your child will get plenty of wear out of it all year round as they masquerade as Wolverine.
