If you’re looking for some of the best authentic and realistic Batgirl costumes then at Superheroes Central we have found a great selection for fans of the one of the most popular and iconic female super heroes ever. First appearing way back in 1967 in Detective Comics #359, Batgirl was originally Gotham City’s police chief Jim Gordon’s daughter, Barbara Gordon(not that he knows that), created by and wearing a costume designed by Carmine Infantino, and in that story she first created her costume for a policeman’s ball, and not as a superheroes disguise, but on her way to the ball she came to Bruce Waynes rescue(not that he was ever truly in danger), but did provide him with a distraction to allow Bruce to change into his alter ego Batman. And ever since that fateful encounter which she regularly teamed up with Batman and Robin fighting villains like the Joker and Catwoman, and even having a romantic relationship with Dick Grayson’s Robin. Indeed Barbara was the Batgirl right up until 1988 when the Joker shot and crippled her in her civilian identity in the acclaimed graphic novel The Killing Joke written by Alan Moore. And although Barbara’s stint as Batgirl would end for the next 30 years, other woman would come to pick up the iconic mantle and wear the Batgirl costume, until Barbara Gordon’s return. And now with our help in finding some of the best Batgirl costumes out there you too could be the one to wear the fabled costume.

So obviously you are a big fan and are looking foe some great Batgirl costume ideas for the adults, well we’ve put together a few. Firstly we should mention that this is a page dedicated to Batgirl and not to the similarly garbed but completely separate and different character Batwoman, who shares similar costume design elements but instead of her accessories and trim being gold, Batwoman’s are red. So now that we’ve cleared that little point up, here are some of the ideas we’ve got, firstly that we tried to pick mostly authentic and quality costumes that you’ll look fantastic in and for costumes that others have bought and shared their positive experiences. We have also included on our list one costume that is a quick and easy solution for those who don’t want to either spend either a lot of time or money getting in character for their costume party but still want to have fun. So next we have also included two outfits which are based of Carmine Infantino’s original depiction and style of costume, these sleek and stylish costumes are essentially a black jumpsuit(or dress) with gold trim, and finally but certainly not in the least is Batgirl costume that most die hard fans would both know and love, and that of course is the purple and gold costume from the iconic 60’s cult show Batman and worn by the glamorous and sexy Yvonne Craig.Realistic Batgirl Cosplay Costumes

Authentic Batgirl Costume For Sale
Another great addition to this list is this super authentic Batgirl costume for sale, which of all the costumes selected really struck us as the closest thing to Carmine Infantino’s original design from the comics and although there are slight differences they are slight(originally Batgirl had a blue cowl and cape identical to Batman’s but over time the colours have varied slightly). So this amazing costume is nice form fitting black body with attached black hood, and all the yellow trimming like the gloves, boots and belt also part of the body suit. It just looks fantastic, wearing this you look like you stepped right off the pages a comic book . So a few things that are not so great is the lack of a cape which will have to bought separately to the costume, in the comics it’s actually a reverse sided yellow/black cape, and fortunately we were able to find one like that for sale and inserted a link. But actually either a yellow or a black cape works really well with this costume. And the other point worth mentioning is this great costume has been reviewed by lots of people and although there were lots of positive comments, a common theme running through the review was the fact that costume runs small compared to the size chart so it may be worth thinking about buying a size bigger than you would normally. Other than that we really loved this authentic Batgirl costume and we think you will too.
