Classic Superhero Costumes Go Stereotypically Girly This HalloweenLori Garcia
Make no mistake, I love me some pink. With the zest and sparkle of a 5-year-old girl I love pink. But why, oh why, did classic superhero costumes have to go all stereotypically girly and get pinkified?
Little girls with enough moxie to take on a superheroine this Halloween deserve a costume in true, original superhero form, not some pink-girly version that in no way resembles the original.
Let’s take a look at superhero costumes given the pink treatment just in time for Halloween – after the jump.
Spider-Girl Classic 1 of 9Spider-Girl is actually the daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane who knew? Betcha also didn't know her costume is supposed to be a near exact replica of her father's.
Available from Amazon, $23.86
Wonder Woman 2 of 9Why give the pink treatment to one of the few original superheroines? Long live gold, red, and blue!
Available from Amazon, $19.99
Supergirl 3 of 9According to the comic, Supergirl was sent to Earth by her parents in a costume closely resembling Superman's so that he'd know she was his cousin. Do you think The Man of Steel wore pink? Think again.
Available from Amazon, $21.84
Spider-Girl Deluxe 4 of 9Sweet pink Spider-Girl, you look more like a cupcake than a threat to Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin!
Available from Amazon, $29.97
Batgirl 5 of 9While Batgirl looks absolutely adorable in her little pink number, she hardly looks fierce enough to handle The Joker, The Riddler, and the rest of Gotham's adversaries. Batgirl deserves the black and yellow (and/or old school grey) treatment!
Available from Amazon, $19.95
Spider-Girl 6 of 9Why do I feel like this costume should shoot glitter rather than webs?
Available from Amazon, $14.99
Superhero Barbie 7 of 9I'd expect nothing less than an explosion of pink fabulousness all over this superhero Barbie costume.
Available from Costume Craze, $45.09
Girl Superhero 8 of 9In terms of non-specific superhero costumes, there's nothing wrong with a pink costume. Long live girl power!
Available from Amazon, $15.45
Pink Superhero 9 of 9You got me; this costume is just about the cutest thing with the little girl's name embroidered on her chest. You go, girl!
Available from Pottery Barn Kids, $59
