In fancy dress, trends come and go, but the recent box office success of the Dark Knight trilogy
means that superhero costumes are sure to be big in 2013! There are so many iconic superheroes

Man of Steel, the latest Superman movie, is coming out in cinemas later this year. Although some of
the more recent Superman films haven’t fared so well, it’s always fun to dress like Clark Kent’s alter

The third instalment of the exciting superhero franchise will see Iron Man costumes become popular
once again, and no wonder. They’re so much fun to wear and look a little different to the normal
