Dear Doctors SWM, 

Long time lurker, first time topic creator. My girlfriend of 2+ years has been through a lot of bad things in her life, which has left her with pretty serious anxiety and a very distinct lack of self-confidence and self-worth. One of the things that seems to help with those issues, at least temporarily, is for her to be "super". On that subject, I'm not quite sure how much of it is just "pretending" to be super, but I only have suspicions...

Anyway! She has a Supergirl costume which she likes, but it's very clearly a cheaper Halloween costume, and it's beginning to show its (lack of) quality. She's mentioned wanting a nicer Supergirl costume similar to the recent live-action one (with the skirt), and recently expressed an interest in a Power Girl costume, among others.

I want to get her nicer, higher quality costumes, but I'm having trouble finding ones that look like better quality workmanship and accuracy without breaking the proverbial (or literal) bank, so I'm turning to people with far more knowledge on the subject. Any suggestions or advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

Hi man, actually, my girlfriend (and I) are buying our supercostumes on Aliexpress, please find some links and some old old pictures from my GF wearing some of it.

As you see, she loves to wear my old costume too, and in my opinion it looks good on her.Theses costumes are not so expensive, from 40 to 100$, which is a good when you get shot each week or contain explosions with your body. By the way the good things with zentai type costume is that the material is really durable, especially against small firearms bullets. Some shops can offer you fast delivery if the need is urgent.

The choice depends on the body shape of your girlfriend too, but my advice will be to buy several different costumes and let her choose the one she loves the most and as you said the one she makes her the most self-confident. But if I take the example of my GF today she had 5 SG costumes, the same number of belts, boots, capes… she likes to mix it, and choose it depending on the mission, the weather, the enemies…
