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 story lines 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.

Assemble Your Costume

Did you find the shirt? Did you find the pants? Great! If you decided to use the netting to make it look like your costume has scales, hang it over the shirt, see where you want those scales to be and pin it to your shirt. Add the boots, the yellow belt with the big letter "A", and the gauntlet style green gloves.

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.
