Super Villain Costumes

Don't get us wrong, it's a great idea to dress-up as a super hero. Sometimes though, it's just more fun to throw on one of our super villain costumes and be a bad guy. It's like what actors say, occasionally it's just a little more rewarding being a heel.

Female Villain Costumes

Clockwork Orange Costume Women's

If you've ever seen Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, chances are that you'll be able to appreciate what a wonderful piece of twisted cinema the New York native has created.

Villain Costume Suggestions

    "My pick of villain costume would have to be one of fairytale's best bad guys. With big eyes, big ears and big teeth, this Big Bad Wolf costume could transform me into Esther Ranson, but no, I am a wolf, a lone wolf that eats little girls in capes rather than the old bag from That's Life."

    "As a child, I wanted to be Medusa so bad that I unfurled a handful of worms upon my own scalp at a parent and teacher evening. I pounced on boys and screamed “turn to stone you nasty, demented boy!”. Today, as a grown woman I merely slip on my sultry Medusa costume with no need to make my hair filthy like the smelly boys I used to prey upon."

  • Alan - Warehouse

    "My wife's nickname for me is 'Gremlin' because I've been known to snack after midnight and also buy pets from Chinese men called Mr. Wing. As a result, this unnerving connection has led me to procuring a Stripe Gremlin costume for me to wear on special occasions when fancy dress is a prerequisite."

Even More Villain Fancy Dress!

Adult Catwoman Costume

We're willing to bet that most people will be familiar with Batman, even if they haven't read the comic book or seen all of the recent Christian Bale movies. Such is the popularity of the Dark Knight, that we deem it next to impossible to be able to see the names of the five costumes below taken from the Batman universe and not know at least one.

The DC comic book universe has given birth to a series of supporting characters, each offering itself as a superb choice to dress up as, and, such is the demand, that official licensed costumes from the Batman universe including his arch nemeses are readily available. Take for example the official Bane costume , modelled on the outfit as worn by Tom Hardy in The Dark Knight Rises. It just looks like a costume that a super villain would wear. The terrifying mask also makes it a great Halloween costume option.

Christopher Nolan's Batman series has featured scarily daunting Batman villains, perhaps the most famous being that of Heath Ledger's Joker. Slipping on the Joker costume , Ledger put in an incredible performance in what turned out to be his last complete appearance on film. The outfit makes a great tribute and will also allow you to become one of modern cinemas most revered villains.

Don't forget to check out the comic book Batman Penguin costume . We find this outfit is particularly handy if you need to go somewhere with an umbrella! Stay dry and maintain your appearance as a super villain!

We haven't forgotten the ladies either! Don't panic gals, we also have a couple of top villain costume ideas that will have you looking as evil as you desire to appear. The Catwoman costume is a delightfully simple outfit that allows you to show off a little cleavage and feel as sexy as Gotham's finest cat burglar. We also have an officially endorsed Female Riddler costume too! Available in three sizes, it'll give you reason to become thoroughly enigmatic.

The Star Wars franchise provides us with a decent selection of bad guys to choose from also. Men have the choice from some of cinemas best remembered characters. Look no further than the Darth Vader costume . The deluxe version of the outfit comes in two sizes and looks about as close as you could wish to without splashing out on the replica supreme edition. There's also a superb official Emperor Palpatine costume , featured in almost all of the first two trilogies of films, Emperor Palpatine is portrayed by Ian McDiarmid and is the evil Emperor of the Galactic Empire. Finally, be sure to take a moment to see the Jabba the Hutt costume . It's a one-size fits all outfit that is inflatable and will ensure you grow large, like the 600 year old crime lord.

For the ladies, when it comes to Star Wars, we suggest the Asajj Ventress costume . The deluxe outfit is a replica of the Dathomirian Dark Jedi. Featured in Star Wars: Clone Wars, Asajj Ventressis is Anakin Skywalker's arch nemesis.

Still not hitting the spot? Horror movies are a great resource to find your perfect villain fancy dress costume.

If you've ever seen The Silence of the Lambs, you'd know that the Hannibal Lecter costume would be ideal, especially if you've always wanted to become a cannibalistic serial killer. The Freddy Krueger costume is another cult offering that will allow everyone to know who you are without needing to ask, and, is now available in the Miss Krueger costume offering. The same goes for our popular Jason Voorhees costume , it's an iconic part of modern cinema, and with the Miss Voorhees costume will allow you to go to a costume party as a couple.
