In my humble opinion, Batman and Batgirl are the coolest superheroes, and thereby make the coolest couples Halloween costume. Batman and Batgirl are fierce and relatively non-violent (fighting crime by imprisoning villains, not killing them), and above all, they’re mortals! I mean, they’re really rich… but money technically isn’t a superpower.

This Halloween, grab your S/O or your BFF and dress up as the two coolest caped crusaders! This costume is really doable, and you might already have most of the pieces in your closet. Ready to save Gotham City? Let’s do this!

Batman Costume

I didn’t want to go *too* literal when putting together these costumes. Practically speaking, it’d be hard to walk around all day with a cape and armor. For Batman, I dressed Motion Graphic Artist Simon in black skinny jeans from Old Navy, a Kjdshwan Leather Jacket ($30) from Amazon, and Globalwin Combat Boots ($30) from Amazon.

I ironed-on a Batman logo on a black t-shirt and bought a UTG Pistol Belt ($15), a Batman Costume Mask ($5), and Milwaukee Leather Fingerless Gloves ($11) from Amazon.

Batgirl Costume

Batgirl’s outfit is just as accessible and fashion-forward! I dressed Visual Designer Torii in a Haoduoyi Cap Blazer ($21), ROF Over-the-Knee Boots ($30), and leather gloves ($9), all from Amazon. I picked up some black workout leggings with mesh cutouts and ironed on a Batgirl logo on a dark gray turtleneck. I topped off the look with a pair of Batman Sunglasses ($8) and slung a UTG Pistol Belt ($15), both from Amazon.

Don’t mess with Batgirl.

Gotham needs you!

Now the question is… who’s the best Batman? George Clooney, Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, or Ben Affleck?
