Black Panther Costumes for Kids & Adults
One of 2018’s biggest films was Black Panther. The character made his first appearance back in the 60s when he appeared in Fantastic Four. It wouldn’t be until the early 70s that this beloved character would star in a feature.
The character Black Panther’s real name is T’Challa. Along with fighting crimes and rendering justice, he’s also the king of the fictional nation Wakanda. He earned his enhanced abilities by rituals that came from drinking the essence of Wakandan herbs.
He debuted in American comics as the first superhero of African descent.The Black Panther’s costume is a padded jumpsuit designed to keep even the little ones warm on Halloween night.
It may also include the signature mask, which keeps T’Challa’s identity a secret from his enemies. If your little one wants to dress up as the Black Panther, you can purchase a costume that lights up.
This allows you to keep track of your child and lets him spend the night as one of the greatest superheroes of all time. The light-up costume runs on batteries that may or may not be included with the purchase.
If you’d rather go as a villain, Erik Killmonger’s costume is available as well. Erik’s real name is N’Jadaka and he was exiled from Wakanda after his father helped another supervillain.
After changing his name to Erik, he returned to Wakanda in the hopes that he could avenge his father’s death. Erik’s costume is a black jumpsuit that’s designed with different colors to look like his iconic battle suit.
The costume may come with attached boot covers. It can also include a mask or have an attached hood. Another popular costume choice among the Black Panther ones is Shuri.
She is a princess of Wakanda and is T’Challa’s sister. She’s a skilled martial artist and assumes the role of Black Panther while her brother is forced to recover from the wounds that he received in battle.
Shuri’s costume is a colorful, fitted catsuit that’s sleeveless. It may come with the armbands that Shuri wears throughout the Black Panther movie. It can also include the belt and gloves.
The silver face paint to complete the look is not sold with the costume. If you’re looking for a group costume, you’ll want to check out the Dora Milaje. In The Black Panther universe, the Dora Milaje is a group of women who are bodyguards as well as special forces to the nation of Wakanda.
In the original comics, there are only five members of the Dora Milaje. The costume comes with a colorful long-sleeve tunic. It includes pants, with boot covers, so you’ll look just like these powerful women. It can come with a belt that has the signature emblem on it.
