Dress up in any of Black Panther costumes on Halloween and you’ll feel as if you can save the world.
Black Panther, one of 2018’s biggest movies, gives us a vast array of costumes to select from this Halloween.
T’Challa, the main character in the film, made his first appearance in the 60s when he appeared in Fantastic Four. It wouldn’t be until the early 70s that this beloved character would star in a feature.
Along with fighting crimes and rendering justice, he’s also the king of the fictional nation Wakanda. He earned his enhanced abilities by rituals that came from drinking the essence of Wakandan herbs.
T’Challa’s Black Panther costume is a padded jumpsuit designed to keep even the little ones warm on Halloween night.
It may also include the signature mask, which keeps his identity a secret from his enemies.
