“Life is locomotion. If you’re not moving, you’re not living.” So says The Flash, the fastest member of the Justice League!  Even if you don’t know WHO “The Flash” is, you might like this get-up for your own resident “Flash”.  (I know my little guy is FAST 😉 — I’d sure get a kick out of seeing him in a Speedy Superhero dress up outfit!)

Your little guy can save the day, dressed up in this Deluxe Muscle Chest Flash Child Costume.  The costume ensemble includes the jumpsuit with boot tops, belt, and headpiece.



THE HULK Boys Costume

Little boys just love to stomp around the house being BIG and SCARY and NOISY, don’t they? I certainly get a kick out of watching my little guy do that! 🙂

The HULK will no doubt fascinate many boys with his size and strength, and of course, that interesting green skin!

This is a detailed full jumpsuit and mask from the Hulk in the Avengers 2 movie.



SUPERMAN Boys Costume

This Superman Costume is sure to become a quick favorite for your little guy! Which boy DOESN’T want to be a) called Superman? b) fly? c) perform daring rescues including incredible feats of strength, and d) be a symbol of hope?

This is the Deluxe Kids Man of Steel Superman costume, and includes the jumpsuit with boot tops and the cape.  Definitely one of my personal favorites!



SPIDER MAN Boys Costume

If your little guy is a big Spider-Man fan (a Spider-Fan?), then this boys dress up clothes addition is THE Spider-Man outfit he might go crazy over… it is reversible to the Venom costume (The Black Spiderman). Very cool!

This a reversible black to classic fiber filled costume and comes with a reversible fabric mask. It’s an officially licensed Spider-Man costume.

Wearing this one, he’ll be web-slinging to victory of the Bad Guys like only he can!



BATMAN Boys Costume

This is one superhero costume that would be recognized anywhere… the classic BATMAN! Your little guy will look muscled and ready for anything in this Muscle Chest Batman outfit.

No doubt you’ll be hearing that “Nana-nana-nana-nana…. BATMAN!!! song line over and over and over and over if you do purchase this one. Fair warning, friends. You may just have to retreat “To the Bat-Mobile!!” 🙂

Costume ensemble comes with headpiece, cape, jumpsuit with boot tops, and belt.

(Also check out my post on the Best Batman Costumes For Kids to see other top choices!)



ROBIN CostumeRobin Costume For Boys

And then there’s Robin… Batman’s trusty sidekick, Boy Wonder, and unofficial leader of the Teen Titans!

When little boys play Super-Heros together, having both a Batman and a Robin outfit certainly comes in handy as they can team up to defeat evil. Fighting crime together, in sync, as only they can, your boys will have a blast!

This is a super awesome Muscle-Chest Deluxe Robin dress up outfit, and includes the jumpsuit with boot tops, cape, belt, and eye mask.



BUMBLEBEE Boys Costume 

Although I have yet to see the new Transformers movies (I know, I know… but my little guy is just a toddler yet… 😉 ), I have many memories of Transformers being THE COOLEST TOYS ever for my brothers when I was growing up in the late 80s. No doubt they have been made EVEN COOLER now, so I felt I HAD to include this incredible looking Bumblebee costume.

This yellow, black and silver jumpsuit, with chest-piece, and AWESOME mask will let your little guy transform completely into Bumblebee in robot mode! Transformers, roll out and check out this Deluxe Kids Costume!


IRON MAN Boys Costume

If your boy is an Iron Man fan, especially as featured in Captain America: Civil War, then he would probably really love having this outfit as part of the boys dress up clothes collection at his house.

This costume comes with a lightweight jumpsuit (attached shoe covers) and also the plastic half mask that makes millionaire Tony Stark unfamiliar when he goes into his alter ego mode as Iron Man. Lots of good, hard fun here! 😉



Superhero Boys Dress Up ClothesSUPER ME!!

I know the title of this page says “9”, but I think we need a “10th Super-Hero Costume” suggestion.  Because sometimes the BEST Superhero is the one your child dreams up himself – the one that has unique super-powers and skills that only HE can dream up. And sometimes parents don’t want their house inundated with brand names and Hollywood… this Generic Super-Hero set might be the answer to both.

Comes with the shirt, removable cape, and reversible eye-mask!




Kids Love Dress UpBoys certainly love their Super-Hero play. Don’t get me wrong… girls can and DO play Super-Hero/Super-Heroine too!  And that’s why I made a page about Superhero GIRLS costumes… check it out! For now though, know that each of the above costumes would also provide a lot of fun to a little girl! I sure know one in our household who probably never take off “The Flash”. 🙂

    I love costume ideas for boys. My son has now grownup, but I remember him wearing a towel around his neck, pretending to be a superhero.

    Boys will always love their superheroes because they save the day.

    These costumes are a great halloween idea as well, since it is right around the corner.

    They outgrow them pretty fast I wish there was a way to extend the life of costume to have use of it later.

      Hi Jettaranda, Thanks for commenting! I can so relate to both the towel-around-neck-cape thing… I think that must be a universal game. Maybe it’s the “save the day” theme that’s universal though.

      My mother actually kept the dress up box my siblings and I played with as kids… now my own kids are having a riot with the items I used to wear myself – that’s ONE way to extend the life of the costume! 🙂

    I personally like the look of the Robin and Superman costume. I think my 3 year old boy will love it! But I think if he wears the Robin costume, the mask won’t stay on him for long as he’ll keep tugging at it. Lol!

    These costumes will play time so much more fun for the little ones. Thanks for sharing!

    • Marlaine September 27, 2016 at 4:36 pm

      Hi Yvonne, I love the colors on the Robin one too… and yes, I agree with you about the masks not staying on very long for on little ones. I think in some ways it scares them a bit to have something attached to their faces/obstructing their views a bit. As they get older, it gets easier for them, it seems. Thanks for dropping in!

    After raising 3 girls, we now have a little grandson. Jack is 18 months old and is like a whirlwind. With Halloween coming up I wanted check out ideas for dressing him up. I love your 10 super hero suggestions. The descriptions are great along with the visuals, I almost want to get the superman one for myself. I think for the grandson it would have to be the Hulk, just to fit in with his wrecking abilities. Great fun going through this. I have passed your site details on to my daughter.

    • Marlaine October 15, 2016 at 7:33 pm

      Hi Eddie,
      Raising three girls must have been a lot of fun! But yes, a grandson brings a whole new world, no doubt! I had to laugh at your Hulk comment… funny how our little guys fit the Superhero characteristics sometimes! (My little guy AND little girl would both need The Flash costume LOL – they are FAST!) Glad you enjoyed this page and thanks for commenting!
      Have a lovely day!

    My nephews love to dress up as super heroes, my youngest nephew was so in love with Spiderman he would climb the walls in the corners and drop down on my brother yelling I AM SPIDERMAN, BAD GUY!

    Good times. LOL.

    Makes me remember when I was a kid my mother created a martian costume for my brother out of a cardboard box, spray painted it green, covered him in green grease paint and put a sign on him that said Mars OR Bust.

    Still one of the more fun Halloween costumes she made back then.

    Sorry about the memory lane post but your post was so fun that it made me remember a few things. I enjoyed it.

    • Marlaine October 24, 2016 at 1:47 pm

      I LOVE reading “Memory Lane” comments… dress up play is one of those “transcending time” types of kids fun, isn’t it? I bet that Martian costume got some great reviews from the neighbors on Halloween but man, what a mess it would be to have to clean up green grease paint off of a boy! 😉 Thanks for dropping by, Michelle!

    Your post brought back memories of when I was ten years old dressed up in a cat costume with a painted face and whiskers. I had to sing to another cat …

    It was a riot and my mother was in fits of laughter when she saw me perform on the stage.

    I really believed I was the cat. Costumes for children are a marvellous way for children to develop confidence and use their imagination. My hero was superman and I would take my mother’s red scarf , drape it around my shoulder and pretend I was flying. There is a hero in everyone and as you say we all would love to become one.

    • Marlaine November 22, 2016 at 1:20 am

      Thanks for sharing, Richard! That’s a fun memory. You’re so right that dress up is a riot!

  6. Dan November 25, 2016 at 8:55 pm

    OMG i am definitely getting my future child an Ironman suit! He’s my wifes favorite hero too. That would be so cute to see a little kid running around acting like Ironman lol

    • Marlaine November 25, 2016 at 11:30 pm

      So true! I love how dress up fun can pull together different generations… an adult’s favorite character becomes a child’s new favorite! 🙂

  7. Lisa January 25, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    Oh man! I really need to get some of these… as we speak my two boys are wearing princess dresses! They LOVE dressing up and playing pretend, but we live with my sister and she has a daughter… all ruffles and tutus. These would be so great! I especially love the bumblebee costume. I did just get them knight costumes for Christmas, which they love, but they like to mix it up and superheros are so much fun, especially with all the great superhero movies that are out now.

    • Marlaine January 25, 2017 at 5:50 pm

      These sure ARE cool, aren’t they? If your boys like the knights ones, maybe if none of these superhero boys costumes are just right, I have a page called “Costumes For Boys Who Love Adventures” – it might be just what they love.

      And just so you know you aren’t alone with the sons wearing princess stuff sometimes… my little guy’s favorite accessory from our dress up box is the Cinderella heels. 🙂

    I absolutely LOVE your site!!!! It takes me back to the best days of my life. I have three…and each of them lived in dress-up. I have an extra large, heirloom-worthy trunk full of their well-worn, lovingly repaired and saved superhero and heroine dress-ups. You should consider reviewing and offering some heirloom trunks on your site. I can’t wait to pull mine out of the attic in celebration of my next generation of superheroes. Looking forward to hearing them say…”Dress-up days at Sugar’s are my favorite days.”

    Incredible site. Job well done!

      Angie, thanks so much for your encouraging note! It means so much to me to read that people enjoy the time they spend on my site. 🙂

      I love the idea of heirloom trunks for dress up – I’ll dig into that idea a bit and see what I can come up with! Thanks for the suggestion!

      I’m sure you’re going to be building a huge bank of memories with and for your grandkids… that’s so wonderful!
