This year, Watchmen movie costumes have become incredibly popular for Halloween and other science fiction gatherings. Silk Spectre, Night Owl, The Comedian, Dr. Manhattan – all of the popular characters from the best-selling graphic novel have stolen the Halloween spotlight, thanks to the release and continuing popularity of the smash hit movie by the same name.
Watchmen movie costumes offer a large variety of characters to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that speaks to your inner superhero. They’re perfect for individual costumes, and would work great if you’re looking for a theme for a family or group of friends. Night Owl and Silk Spectre would make great Watchmen costumes for couples. Most of the characters are dressed in relatively simple costumes, making them easy to imitate and comfortable to wear.
Ladies are free to get in touch with their super heroine sides in Sally Jupiter or Silk Spectre Watchmen movie costumes. Both are fearless fighters dressed in yellow and black costumes, with Silk Spectre’s outfit being a little more sleek and stealthy, while Sally Jupiter maintains a look closer to that of a pin up girl. Costumes for both heroines are easy to find in a range of sizes online, or check your local specialty costume shop.
Watchmen movie costumes offer a variety of choices for men wishing to get in touch with their inner superhero. Night Owl, a popular choice in Watchmen movie costumes this Halloween, is a superhero costume in the likeness of an owl, with a long cape instead of wings. Night Owl’s uniform is quite detailed, and the costumes available this season copy the detail well. Night Owl costumes are relatively inexpensive, and include the owl headpiece.
The Comedian is also a hit when it comes to Watchmen movie costumes. When The Comedian stepped out to fight crime, he did so much like Night Owl – in a very detailed costume. Difficult to duplicate, this may be one Watchmen movie costume you’re better off purchasing.
If you’re hoping to make your own Watchmen costumes, Rorschach is one of the easier Watchmen characters to copy. His vigilante crime fighting uniform was quite simple – a mid-length trench coat with a beige colored scarf, gloves, and a fedora make up the clothing, and the mask could be copied with some thick white material and a fabric pen and very basic sewing skills.
Dr. Manhattan would also be a fairly simple Watchmen Halloween costume to duplicate on your own. While you can purchase a mask and gloves to help make your Watchmen movie costumes more authentic, this isn’t necessary. The only clothing Dr. Manhattan requires is a pair of black pants, though you could opt for a full black suit if you wanted, similar to the one he wore to The Comedian’s funeral. Blue body paint or liquid latex will help turn your skin blue just like Dr. Manhattan.
