We usually attend two or three Halloween events each year, which gives Benjamin an opportunity to wear something from his dress-up box, as well as debut a new Halloween costume. A lot of thought goes in to what costume he picks each year. This year we were going to do a family costume, but time got away with me. I did end up buying the pieces of this year’s costume a size bigger… so maybe next year we’ll add Doc Oc and Prowler to the mix, as planned. Here is Benjamin’s Into the Spider-Verse: Miles Morales Spider-Man costume.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse premiered in theaters in December 2018. It received Best Animated Feature at the 91st Academy Awards. It’s visually stunning, and an easy favorite of ours! Every scene from the movie looks like it comes straight from a comic book. The soundtrack is awesome too!

“Okay, let’s do this one last time, yeah? For real this time. This is it. My name is Miles Morales. I was bitten by a radioactive spider, And for like 2 days, I’ve been the one and only Spider-Man. I think you know the rest. I finished my essay, saved a bunch of people, got hit by a drone (like Peter did), I did this with my dad (to remember my uncle), met my roommate finally, slapped a sticker where my dad’s never gonna find it, and when I feel alone, like no one understands what I’m going through, I remember my friends who get it. I never thought I’d be able to do any of this stuff, but I can. Anyone can wear the mask. You could wear the mask. If you didn’t know that before, I hope you do now. ‘Cause I’m Spider-Man, and I’m not the only one. Not by a long shot.”— Into the Spider-verse 🕷
To take this from Spider-Man to specifically reflect Miles Morales from Into the Spider-Verse, we not only purchased the Spider-Man spandex body suit, but green cargo shorts, and hoodie as well. In the movie, Miles wears a red hoodie under a green bomber jacket. We found this Spider-Verse cosplay zip-up hoodie on Amazon. To save ourselves hundreds of dollars, Benjamin wore his Nike Air Jordan IV’s which he already owned, instead of trying to find Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Chicago’ sneakers.
