Superman / Super Girl / Wonder Woman.
Superman (and supergirl!) and Wonderwoman are probably the first choice for superhero themed fancy dress, being the most iconic superheroes. The costumes are relatively easy to find and don't need many added accessories. Most costumes come with everything needed. When buying a Superman costume, size is very important and you want to make sure it fits comfortably, but snugly.
If going for a more classic look, the 'Christopher Reeve' style Superman costume id the right choice. However, for a more modern look, perhaps the 'Man of Steel' Superman costume would work well, as it is from the most recent Superman movie.

Batman and Robin.
Batman and Robin is a great idea for friends, or you could simply dress as one or the other. There are some great officially licensed Rubies costumes, which are relatively cheap and easy to wear.
There are also the newer style Batman costumes, from The Dark Knight films.

For a Stag-do or any party where you and your friends want coordinating outfits, the X-men is a very good idea. The costumes all work well together, but everyone will still look unique. There are plenty of opportunities for men and women, and all costumes are easy to put together. Our website has a whole category for Superhero costumes.

The Avengers is another great group fancy dress idea. All costumes are quite cheap, depending on what you're looking for. For example, with the Iron Man costume, you can either go for a realistic looking printed jumpsuit or plastic armoured pieces. Rubies makes great officially licensed costumes for a great price and great quality.

There are plenty of costumes to become your favourite villain. Every Superhero franchise has a main villain that would be a great costume. It works especially well if you dress as someone who is easily recognised. Our shop has a range of these costumes and The Joker costumes are very popular!
The Rubie's Joker costume comes with everything and a mask, so no face paint is required! Also, The Joker and Harley Quinn would make a nice costume for couples. Similar to the Superhero costumes, there are printed jumpsuits, or deluxe costumes with plastic armour pieces. Both are very effective.
