Some Facts About Aquaman and His Super Powers

Why do you want to dress up like Aquaman for Halloween? Love the Sea? Love superheroes? Love this super-bad superhero? Why not combine the above reasons and make your own Aquaman costume for Halloween this year? Aquaman was cast out of Atlantis when he was a baby and has lived his entire life thinking he was Arthur Curry, a human, and the son of a lighthouse keeper. His Atlantean name is Orin.

His Atlantean powers include:

  • Breathing Under Water
  • Swim At Unbelievable Speeds
  • Communicate With Sea Life
  • Having Superhuman Strength
  • Super Enhanced Senses
  • Skin That Cannot Be Penetrated By Even Machine Gun Fire

There are a couple of different storylines that tell us about Arthur and how he finds out he is King of Atlantis. But now that he has learned who he really is, he must protect two worlds he loves, the one under the sea and the one above the sea.

This is the look you are going for.  I found this picture on etsy, it's a great costume, but it costs over four hundred dollars.  Cheaper to make your own.

You can buy a trident or watch the video below that will tell you how to make your own trident, and it will cost you about one dollar! Cheap is great at Halloween time. There is also a video that will show someone drawing scales on the orange shirt if you decide to do that. I don't think it's necessary, but I am not the one making this costume, am I?

Justice League Movie

Find out more about the Aquaman movie that's going to be released in 2018. Jason Momoa, who I love as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, is going to play the Atlantean King. Good choice, even though he is not who I ever pictured as Arthur Curry/Aquaman. I can't wait to see this film.

Put Your Costume Together

Finding the right pants, shirt, gloves, and boots is the challenge in making this costume for Halloween, and that shouldn't be that difficult. The trident is easy to find and buy, and it's easy to make yourself. Get some spray hair color and color your hair blonde. Justice League fans are going to love seeing this DC Comic character come to life!

Halloween comes once a year, and it will be here before you know it. Start looking for your costume today. Check your closets, thrift shops, cheap clothing stores, and sale racks. If that doesn't work, take a look at what you have that you can paint or dye the right colors. Just use a little bit of creativity and imagination, and you are sure to make yourself a great costume for Halloween this year.
