This is the best Dollar Store Halloween costume I’ve ever seen, for several reasons:
- It’s not a Superman costume. It’s a Brandon Routh playing Superman costume. The kid wearing this costume isn’t pretending that he is Superman, with his own face and everything. No, he is pretending he is the actor who played Superman three movies ago. Or he’s just wearing Brandon Routh’s severed face.
- I don’t remember Superman wearing a mini toga thing. And it’s convenient that the picture stops at the waist, leaving out the ratty sweatpants that the kid probably has on.
- Damn, the “lite” up feature is non-functioning. Even if it worked, though, what is lighting up? Is that … Kryptonite? Here is what Kryptonite does to Superman:
- So if this kid is really into his role as Brandon Routh playing Superman, he’ll pretend to be Brandon Routh pretending to writhe in pain as the
lite-upKryptonite poisons his insides. It should come with blood capsules so he can properly simulate the face-bleeding.
- Which is also consistent with the “I stole an actor’s face” backstory to this costume.
