Before you go around to gather the stuff required to create the superhero costume, a little planning is required. First of all decide for whom the costume is. If the costume is for a boy or for a girl. What is the age of the person, and what is the build of the person. Noting down the body measurements at different areas, will help you to be precise while stitching the superhero suit.

Also, on a piece of paper draw various rough sketches of how you plan the suit to look like. So, if you wish to create a new superhero you can use these ideas. However, if you want to learn how to make a superhero costume of an already existing superhero, then get from the Internet as many pictures you can of the costume, so creating the costume becomes easier. Keep in mind the gender of the person who will be wearing the costume, because for men and women styles differ a lot. So, have your plans on paper ready and use these steps to create the cosplay costume.
Stretchy material stuff is good for a superhero costume, so start with some spandex. For the costume base, use a leotard, a unitard or bike shorts over bike leggings, then use a stretchy spandex t-shirt. Make sure you tug everything properly. For how to make a superhero costume for a girl, you can consider adding a skirt over the stretchy pants, or wear stockings. When trying how to make a superhero costume for kids, make sure you use cotton material more and less stretchy material, to keep them comfortable in the costume.
Then comes the headgear. There are many homemade costume ideas to create it. The simplest is to just use a big pair of swimming goggles in bright color. You can also use face paint, to create a mask like effect. You can also use a helmet or a tiara to add headgear. You can also use a swimming cap, to hide your hair.
Then add some footgear, long boots look cool. Make sure you choose a color of boots which goes with your costume. If you can't find proper boots, then you can consider wearing plain black gum boots.
Then add the main stuff, which makes the superhero look like the superhero, which is the cape. Wondering how to make a superhero cape? Take a long sheet or a thin plain blanket. And on it, use colors or stitch a patch to add the superhero logo. Then tie it around the neck, and the cape is done.
The last step to make your own superhero costume, is to add some super accessories, which the superhero needs for fighting crime. Accessories like sword, or a super tools loaded belt, or a gun, or a multi-function wrist watch, etc.
These were the steps on how to make a superhero costume. So, use the above steps, and remember the above tips on planning, to make an awesome superhero costume. Good luck!
