Just one week after the release of Marvel Rising’s official trailer, we are already getting word of new and upcoming products from the series,the first of which will arrive just before the Halloween season: a line of officially licensed Marvel Rising costumes to be sold at Party City.
The trailer showcased the first team-up of Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe as they attempt to capture Ghost Spider, who is presumed to be a superhero gone rogue. Coincidently, those three heroes are also the first costumes in the Party City line.
Until recently, Marvel’s costumes for girls have been limited to variations of Spider-Man, Captain America and Black Widow. But last year, Disney released their first Ms. Marvel costume for kids – and it left people wanting more. These three new additions will dramatically expand options in the tiny world of girls’ superhero costumes.
Although you will have to add your own squirrel companion, for the first time ever we have a Squirrel Girl costume, which includes a tail, ear headband, boot toppers, and utility belts. We also see a new take on Ghost Spider’s (a.k.a. “Spider-Gwen”) costume which comes in electric blues and a shocking pink, while Ms. Marvel’s costume is equally eye-catching with its vibrant gold bracers and dramatic scarf.
Whether they are worn for a night of Halloween fun or cosplaying at a comic-book convention, these pieces make a great addition to any young superhero’s wardrobe. Each costume retails around $30 and online orders will launch August 1st. The costumes will land on store shelves at various Party City locations starting September 4th.
Marvel Rising: Initiation premieres August 13th on Disney XD.
