    I've got a superhero party next weekend and i really have no idea who I should go as. I want something that I dont have to go into too much effort for. I'm broke and cant really be bothered making something up. So I was wondering if you can help me choose something more uncommon.

    I was thinking maybe like indie-movie superhero/movie character...like maybe Donnie Darko or something. Just need a black hoody and skeleton top for that. Any suggestions?

    The Punisher, from the movie anyway.

    Or you could go as a superhero's alter-ego. Bruce Wayne, Bruce Banner, Peter Parker, Clark Kent, etc. Wear a Superman t-shirt under a button down shirt, then you can show the logo when anyone asks who you are.

    Elektra.

    Actually, I say have fun with it. Go with somebody from Mystery Men, like The Shoveller or The Blue Raja and throw spoons at everyone.

    I'd go with the Clark-to-Superman costume: Half-open shirt with Superman costume showing underneath (in this case a blue tshirt with the logo will do, half-undone tie, and black-rim glasses.

    I had a friend that went as "The Greatest American Hero" a couple of years ago and it went over great. You just need a red jump suit, a yellow cape, & a blonde curly wig

    ....that costume idea certainly worked for Brandon Routh. [​IMG]

    You could also get a Guy Fawkes mask, a black cloak, hat and some dark clothing and go as V.

    I have a friend who did exactly that one Halloween, hitting the city's best costume shop the day of the party and collecting as much cheap crap as he could. Cracked everybody up. His utility belt contained a spatula, one Converse All-Star, and a rubber chicken.
