Thrift Store Halloween Costumes: Superheroes AND Alter Egos

This Thrift Store Halloween Costume inspiration is from a cosplay group I witnessed at an anime con last weekend. Equal parts super hero and alter ego, it's really clever and easy (easier than the whole damn superhero outfit, naturally). Use a suit you already have or find one at the thrift store. Obtain a mask (often a mask and no costume at thrift stores) and voila, fun costume.

And if anyone asks "What're YOU supposed to be?" you can uppercut him Mortal Kombat style and say, "I'm Batman AND Bruce Wayne. My fists are registered weapons!"  then a roundhouse kick for the KO. Wow, I want to dress up as Batman for Halloween now...

By the way... I'll have Thrift Store Halloween Costumes featured here until the sorrowful end of October. I love Halloween! 

And... I'm still giving away vintage and homemade Halloween goodies. Enter for your chance to win.
