Have you seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse yet? It is such a fun movie, so fun that when Elliot asked for a Spider-Man Noir costume for a school performance, I had to say yes. 😉
Ok, I don’t really need an excuse to make a costume. You know me, I’d make costumes every day if I could. 😉
How to Make a Spider-Man Noir Costume
My favorite kind of costume is a simple one, using items we already own or can borrow. This Spider-Man Noir costume is the perfect example of that. We only had to order one thing for it and it is something we can use again when the boys go snowboarding again.
DIY Spider-Man Noir Costume
Spider-Man Noir is an alternate dimension Peter Parker, he looks like a 1930’s private investigator complete with a fedora and trench coat. His ‘noir’ dimension is black and white, with shades of gray. There is no bright red or blue Spider-Man outfit.
Spider-Man Noir Trench Coat
I think the key piece of the Spider-Man Noir costume is a black or dark gray trench coat. I initially tried to find a trench coat at local thrift stores but didn’t have any luck. Luckily I did have a long black coat that could work, it sort of looks like a trench coat on Elliot. Otherwise, I might have bought this boys trench coat on Amazon.
Spider-Man Noir Fedora Hat
Spider-Man Noir always wears a black fedora hat. We already had one on hand, Elliot’s always been a fan of interesting hats. I did attach a black ribbon along the edge to cover up the color details on this particular hat.

Spider-Man Noir Costume Mask and Goggles
Spider-Man Noir wears a black face-less mask with goggles. The one thing we had to buy was this black snow/bike face mask. One of the boys will the face mask when snowboarding next season, to help with the wind and cold.
The mask only has eye holes which we covered up with a pair of black swim goggles we borrowed. There was a little white plastic on the edge fo the goggles that I covered up with a sharpie. Luckily we borrowed them (probably permanently) from my dad but he wouldn’t care about the sharpie enhancement anyway.
Spider-Man Noir Costume Materials
Underneath, Elliot wore a black t-shirt and pants which we already had. So you see, this costume really was easy to pull together.

If you haven’t watched Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse yet, go watch it and then come back and tell me if I should make another costume from that movie. I think a Spider-Ham costume might be fun to make…
