Your Guide to X-Men Costume Ideas

mens-marvel-universe-deluxe-adult-wolverine-costumeBefore Spider-ManThe Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy hit the big screen, Marvel’s X-Men franchise kicked things off right in the year 2000 when the first movie was released. Following a successful trilogy, Wolverine received two of his own films, a New Class was introduced, and the entire team rejoined for Days of Future Past. Between that hit and its sequel Apocalypse, which hit theatres this past summer,  the X-Men are sure to be a hot property this Halloween.

Of course, before the films, the X-Men were known for their countless comic book appearances as well as the incredibly memorable animated television  series that aired from 1992 to 1997. Because of this, there are many versions of your favorite characters that exist in costume form. For example, there’s the gritty Wolverine with his white tank top and mutton chops as seen in the films and then there’s the classic yellow and blue outfit (akin to his University of Michigan mascot namesake) that fans of the TV show might associate him with.

To help you find the perfect X-Men costume for your Halloween party, we’ve assembled some of the best costumes and accessories available. From Cyclops to Storm and from Rogue to Quicksilver, check out our chart to find the right X-Men outfit for you:



Through many iterations and mediums, the X-Men remain as popular as ever. With the success of both Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocolypse combined with the memories of beloved cartoon series still fresh in the minds of fans, the mutants of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters are a great source for costume inspiration this year. So suit up as your favorite X-man or woman this Halloween!
