A lot of thought goes into Halloween costume ideas here and this year was no different. Benjamin chose an Into the Spider-Verse: Miles Morales Spider-Man costume this year and it has been a hit! We usually attend two or three Halloween events each year, so Benjamin has an opportunity to wear something from his dress-up box as well as debut a new Halloween costume.

Into the Spider-Verse: Miles Morales Spider-Man
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 became an easy favorite of ours! Every scene from the movie looks like it comes straight from a comic book. The soundtrack is pretty 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 🕷
How I created the Spider-Verse: Miles Morales Spider-Man costume
To specifically reflect Miles Morales from Into the Spider-Verse, we not only purchased a Spider-Man spandex body suit, but also green cargo shorts, and hoodie. In the movie, Miles wears a red hoodie under a green bomber jacket but we found this Spider-Verse cosplay zip-up hoodie on Amazon so he wore that. Benjamin wore his Nike Air Jordan IV’s so we could save some $$$ instead of trying to find Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Chicago’ sneakers.
