So if like us you are really enjoying the man of steel’s latest movie incarnation and want to be him at your next party or convention this costume is modelled on his appearance from the Man of Steel movie, the jumpsuit itself is made from a blend of polyester and spandex with a large ankle length satin cape, it also has a foam molded belt and symbol on the chest. A great costume that people for the most part seem very happy with, some comments in the customers reviews were that the jumpsuit isn’t as clingy as normal spandex(which for men who aren’t in great shape is probably helpful) overall people thought it was of good quality and very realistic.

Real Dawn Of Justice Superman Costume
This real looking Superman costume is the best one for those of us not in such great shape. So we all know that Superman is known as the man of steel right? But why do people call him that? Sure he’s virtually invulnerable, right. But he’s also really, really buff. Especially since Henry Cavill took over the role, that guy is a beast. Unfortunately not all of us men are blessed with a physique that will look great under a super tight set of super tights. Fortunately the guys who design these great costumes know this and in this case they’ve got us covered, an awesome and cheap Superman costume for sale modelled on his appearance in the movie Man Of Steel, which not only is real looking but includes some fake muscles for us men who need the extra help to pull off that classic superhero look. Made from 100% polyester, this costume has been purchased by many and has received hundreds of reviews and they are overwhelmingly positive with two minor negative themes running through them, they are that when ordering this costume the sizes do run a little on the big side so it may be worth ordering a smaller size than you would normally(just something to consider) and also that most people found the boot covers to be small generally, and when ordering the costume you should bear that in mind and if that is going to bother you, perhaps have a back up plan, like buying some Superman boots separately. Definitely the best Superman costume for the slightly out of shape.

Cheap Superman Costume For Sale
A very similar costume to the one above, made from polyester and again the designers were nice enough to give us men those much needed extra foam muscles, there are a few minor differences, firstly this Superman costume is modelled on his appearance in the Dawn Of Justice movie, also the cape is slightly shorter and broader across the shoulder area and there is no little gold trim around the midriff giving the illusion of a belt. While there were not as many reviews as the previous costume, it did receive more overwhelmingly positive reviews and so was a worthy addition to this list, as we are trying to give our customers a great range of tried and tested products to choose from.

A Look At Superman Costumes In The Movies
Superman has been around for nearly 80 years and has actually been in the movies nearly that long, first appearing on the big screen in the 1940’s, and it is only in the last 10 years that there have been any changes to his iconic costume, we thought you’d appreciate a stroll through time and remember some the great actors that played this legendary superhero. He’s a great clip showcasing the best authentic and realistic Superman costumes.
Who Is The Real Superman
Just who is the real Superman? Superman’s origin story might perhaps be the most famous of all, it began when as an infant his father Jor-El a brilliant scientist predicted the destruction of the planet Krypton but he could convince the world’s leaders, so he and his wife Lara placed their infant son Kal-El(Superman) into a spaceship which would take him far into space to the planet called Earth, because they knew that Earth’s yellow sun would grant him superhuman abilities. And after crashing into farmland in Kansas he was found by Jonathon and Martha Kent a childless couple who raised him as their own naming him Clark Kent. For years he was presumed Krpton’s only survivor until the arrival of his cousin Kara Zor-El better known as Supergirl, there were actually quite a few other survivors, some criminals from the Phantom Zone and the entire city population of Kandor shrunk down by the villain Braniac. (It is the comics after all)
Superman has been around for nearly 80 years, and is a superhero worthy of admiration, for his values are synonymous with the American values, truth and justice, along with the Flash, Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter, he founded the Justice League of America.
