Superman Costume Part 2: DIY Pants and Belt

How to Make a Superman Costume Part 2This is part 2 of how to make a Superman costume. This is for the pants and the belt.

The red performance material, as well as the gold foil fabric that I use in this Superman costume I found in JoAnn Fabrics. The blue crushed velvet was left over from my Wonder Woman cape, but that also came from JoAnn’s originally. If you made the first part of the Superman costume, you should have enough performance material and crushed velvet left over to complete this part. (Didn’t quite get a request finished in time for this week, so this is another pre-filmed, but no worries, I’ll be back to requests next week with a little Guardians of the Galaxy prop).

Red shiny performance material (should have enough left from part 1 of the costume)
1 foot of gold foil fabric
Pellon (should have enough left from part 1 of the costume)
Crushed blue velvet (should have enough left from part 1 of the costume)
Navy blue, slightly stretchy pair of pants
Sewing needle and thread
3 large snaps
Hot glue gun

  1. This is so good, loove it! I watched a batman and robin episode from a long time ago (70s?) recently and thought hey, people always do batman as a costume, but robin’s costume (from the 70s or whenever it is from?) is pretty awesome. I hope I get to make a robin costume one day. Have you made one before?

    • Yup, I did actually make one of those 60’s Robin costumes for my cousin for Halloween when he was little (this was several year ago, before I started doing video tutorials). I used a green sweatshirt and green sweatpants for the base (because we wanted poor Robin to have pants for a change, lol), and then I made the red vest out of some duck cloth. And gave him a yellow cape. And then finally, I covered a pair of sneakers with green pleather and gave them the little wing tops like Robin had in the show/comics. His sister went as Batgirl the same year and my brother and I went as Batman and Catwoman. The 4 of us had a great time running around in our costumes.
