Batman is a super popular costume choice on Halloween — this particular Batman costume stands out because it is completely upcycled from men's slacks and felt scraps (how cool is that?). Check out the pattern at Red Ted Art and let us see what you make!

If your little girl is a Batman fan, let her get in on the fun with tights and a tutu!. Let the Tutu Girl show you how to make her costume stand out. Don't forget to add the Batman symbol!
