This year, we're ditching the traditional superhero costumes for these fab girl-power and patriarchy-smashing options. For those of you who want to strut your super stuff this Halloween, here's how.
With the incredible sucess of the CBS-turned-CW show Supergirl, costumes portraying the girl of steel should not be difficult to find this year.
Superhero T-shirts are everywhere these days. Grab a WW tee and some red leggings, and you're good to go! Add in a starry tutu and a yellow crown and wristbands, and people won't be able to tell you apart from Gal Gadot.
Transforming yourself into Black Widow is as easy as wearing a black shirt, black leggings and combat boots.

Go for the Sara Lance version (so much better than Laurel).
This may be as close as we'll ever get to being an Olsen.
Smashing the Patriarchy
Pulling off a Clark Kent/Superman costume could not be easier or more inexpensive. Grab your favorite white button-down, a Superman T-shirt, some black leggings and oversized spectacles, and you'll be a Kryptonian disguised as a journalist.
As Cisco Ramone once said, "It took us two years, but we finally got one: a lady speedster." That would be you in this case.

Got a green hoodie and leather pants? You're good to go!
