Evolution of Spider-Man costume from 1962 to 2014 Infographic by Halloween Costumes.com

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens today in Singapore and you can expect all the movie theaters / cinemas to be packed since it's also a public holiday. I for one am headed for the theater this evening for my "movie date" with Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker / Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and Jamie Foxx (Electro). I was invited to the red carpet reception for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cast which was held at Marina Bay Sands The Skating Rink, Canal Level followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 International Press Conference at MasterCard Theatre on March 27, 2014 and got pretty close to the stars :) You can check out my toy blog post HERE for the coverage.

There have been so many versions of Spider-Man with so many different Spider-Man costumes that it can get pretty confusing. Guess what? The creative team at HalloweenCostumes.com has created an infographic that shows the evolution of Spider-Man's costume from 1962-2014. This infographic is not comprehensive and is missing a few of the minor suits, but for the non-comic expert this should be more than cursory.


I think this is pretty cool and goes with the other costume evolutions I have shared previously, most recent being Captain America characters' evolution from the 40s to Winter Soldier (2014) posted HERE. Another interesting article was "Fashion Heroes - The Costume is a Superhero's Most Defining Characteristic and Stuck for Life" posted in my toy blog HERE

Oh Geez...Scarlet Spider. I could have lived without seeing that thing again. I still have those comics in the basement when I bought them in high school.

Very cool, in addition to these there's about a dozen more Spiderman threads! Armor Spiderman, Iron Spider, Future Foundation, Stealth, Man-Spider and Cosmic Spiderman to name just a few.
