How to Dress Like Black Widow from the Avengers

Hair:
Black Widow has undergone many revamps in her character history throughout the years, from long red hair to auburn hair down to her chin, but in the movies she’s taken on a slick ultramodern hairstyle, a stylish platinum blonde bob that goes down to her shoulders.

To get this look for your costume, you can dye and style your own hair yourself using a hair bleach kit, or you can purchase a platinum blonde wig and cut it to your preferences.

Search online costume websites and Halloween shops for a decent wig, and use hairspray to style it if needed. If you’d rather be the more classic version of Black Widow, purchase a short dark red wig with slight curls at the bottom to match the character.

Makeup:
Black Widow wears a simple light red lipstick and black mascara. You can purchase these cosmetics from any online beauty shop or local drugstore.

Outfit:
Black Widow wears a classy black tactical suit with black leggings, thick sleeves and knee-high black platform boots. You can easily improvise this look with a long-sleeved black leather jacket and yoga pants.

In some versions, her character wears a suit with glowing neon blue stripe accents. You can purchase a replica suit online or use blue blacklight fabric paint to create the stripes yourself.

Accessories:
Whether gracing the pages of comic books or appearing on the big screen, Black Widow is always seen with a glock pistol in her hands, a black tactical belt around her waist and black leather gloves.

You can purchase a pistol prop from a costume store, or you can create your own using foam, cardboard or other craft materials.

For the gloves, you can find a basic pair of black leather gloves at any online retail website or shopping mall. For one final touch of authenticity, purchase some black leg holsters for your pistols online.
