X-Men Storm Costume Ideas For Women
We have found some of the best X-men Storm Costume ideas for women, and as you would expect that because Storm has been around since 1975 and has appeared in comics, cartoons, video games and the movies there are quite a few different looks to choose from. The first costume is a great classic look that is straight from the comics, this is very retro look from the golden era of comics. A really fun and sexy costume. Secondly we found this realistic costume modelled on the suit worn by the gorgeous Halle Berry in the original X-Men trilogy, it’s a more serious and contemporary and modern look but still looks very sexy. And finally because we realise that women come in all body shapes we have found a Black bodysuit that is available in extra large sizes, the down side of the last costume is that it doesn’t come with Storm accessories but a few choice additions can make it a great X-men Storm costume.
While some of the costumes have Storm themed accessories none of them come with that iconic Storm wig, and unless your hair is naturally silver you’ll probably have to get one. Another feature that can really take your costume to the next level is a simple but cool looking X-men belt buckle.

Realistic X-Men Storm Costume
For those looking for a realistic X-men Storm costume this next costume is one worth considering. Before there was the juggernaut that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe there were a few awesome superhero movies that paved the way and convinced the powers that be in Hollywood that there was buck to be made bringing comic characters to life on the big screen. One such venture was the original X-men trilogy running from 2000 – 2006 starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverince, Patrick Stuart as Professor Xavier and of course the beautiful Halle Berry as Storm. This trilogy was a honest and realistic attempt to bring beloved comic book characters alive and make them seem real. And it worked. This authentic looking costume is based on the one from the movies and includes a black spandex jumpsuit and satin cape. People absolutely loved this costume and it was hit for nearly everyone. So for a realistic X-men Storm costume that’ll get you looking as sexy as Halle Berry this is definitely worth a look. Just remember no wig included.

A Quick Look At Storm’s History In Comics
We found a great clip on You Tube that gives a quick look at Storm’s history in comics, the clip is perfect for the uninitiated as gives a brief rundown on her origins as well a look at some of her alternative appearances including the infamous Mohawk originally created as a joke in a comic redesign, but it stuck becoming such an iconic look worn that it featured in the film X-men Apocalypse starring Alexandra Shipp as Storm. We enjoyed the video and we hope you do too.
Who is Storm
So just who is Marvel’s X-men Storm? Well her real name is Ororo Monroe and she is the daughter of American photojournalist David Monroe and a Kenyan princess N’Dare(who was incidentally descended from long line of witch-priestesses, all of whom had white hair and blue eyes) Ororo was born in Harlem, New York, but the family later moves to Egypt where they live until Ororo’s parent are killed in an aircraft attack during the Suez Crisis, Ororo survives the attack but is buried under a pile of debris until she is rescued(the incident gives her Claustrophobia) At this point Storm turns to a life of crime on the streets of Cairo, where she becomes a pickpocket. Eventually her powers of weather control surface and she is worshipped as a goddess. Things change forever when she is contacted by Charles Xavier who is recruiting a new X-men team.
Storm is a powerful mutant who’s powers of weather manipulation allow her summon lightning bolts, create fog, and she is even able to fly utilizing strong gusts of wind. A hugely popular character and long time fan favourite, she has even been a X-men team leader on several occasions, even defeating Cyclops in duel for the position on one occasion(although to be fair to Cyclops there was as suggestion that his wife Madelyn prior used latent physic powers to influence the battle, Madelyn was a clone of Cyclops’s former lover Jean Grey who at the time was believed dead before being resurrected, hey it’s the comics). Storm has been a member of X-men and has at times served with other Mutant superheroes such as Wolverine and Deadpool(believe it or not). And if that’s not impressive enough she has even been a member of the mighty Avengers who’s roster includes iconic superheroes like Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Spiderman, Hulk, Black Widow and of course Black Panther who she would later marry becoming Queen of Wakanda (until their marriage was annulled).
It’s fair to say Storm is a ground breaking and iconic character who will be with us for a long time to come.
