Wonder Woman is also a great superhero to pair with Superman in a couples costumes, since they’ve fought side-by-side as founding members of the Justice League countless times. They’ll also both be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Plus, Kara and Kal are actually cousins in the mainstream DC Universe, so a Supergirl/Superman couples costume might get a little bit awkward in canon.

These designs are from The Dark Knight Rises, but we’re also big fans of the classic 196os Batman and Catwoman costumes, worn by Adam West and Julie Newmar (and later Eartha Kitt) in the TV series. Add Batgirl and Robin for the ultimate group costume. A great idea for some DIY Batman costume props is to create your own “Wham!” and “Pow!” signs out of cardboard, and use them while posing for photos.
