A Lois Lane costume is a perfect fancy dress, halloween costume or cosplay for fans of any of the Superman movies or comic books. To dress like Lois Lane is easy enough with only a few items of clothing needed. For this Lois Lane costume we will focus on the character portrayed by Amy McAdams in the movie Man of Steel.
Lois Lane Costume – Man of Steel
Lois Lane is a reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper who often wears smart office style clothing with high heels. She usually wears either a button down shirt or a sweater with a tight fitting skirt. This is the style you should keep in mind when trying to dress like Lois Lane and making your own Lois Lane costume. Here is what you will need.
Lois Lane Skirt
|Lois Lane is often seen wearing a pencil skirt in the movie Man of Steel.
Her skirts are usually black or grey and they are usually short enough to hang just above her knees.
To dress like Lois Lane choose a smart skirt. We would recommend a grey pencil skirt like the one in the photo.
Lois Lane White Shirt
|Keeping with the office clothing to dress like Lois Lane you will need either a woman’s white or light blue shirt or blouse.
To replicate the Lois Lane costume keep the top couple of buttons loose.
Also make sure that the shirt or blouse has a collar and choose one that has long sleeves which you can then roll up copying Lois Lane’s style.
Lois Lane High Heels
|Lois Lane is always seen wearing high heels.
Although she is seen wearing knee high boots in a couple of scenes for your Lois Lane costume we would recommend that you choose a pair of dark colored formal office high heels.
To truly dress like Lois Lane we recommend a pair of black office high heels.
Lois Lane Waistcoat
|In several scenes of the movie Lois Lane is seen wearing different waistcoats.
To dress like Lois Lane you should copy the colors she wears and choose either a grey or black waistcoat.
We would recommend a black waistcoat for your Lois Lane costume as this is the color she is most often seen wearing.
Lois Lane Sweater
|If you decide that you would rather choose a sweater over a waistcoat for your Lois Lane costume then this will work also.
You will still need to wear a blouse or shirt with your Lois Lane sweater.
Make sure the sweater that you choose for your Lois Lane costume has a low cut v-neck and try and choose a sweater that is tight fitting and has three quarter length sleeves.
This is because to dress like Lois Lane you should copy her style by rolling up your shirt sleeves a little.
Lois Lane Trenchcoat
|To dress like Lois Lane make sure that for a coat you wear a dark colored, preferably black, trench coat.
The trench coat that Lois Lane wears has a big collar with buttons down the front and also features a belt around the waist.
Lois Lane’s trench coat appears to be made from wool although a wool trench coat is not an absolute must for your Lois Lane costume.
Lois Lane Handbag
|When Lois Lane is out and about in Metropolis she carry’s a handbag which she carry’s on her shoulder.
The strap of the handbag allows it to hang by her waist.
Lois Lane’s handbag is usually relatively plain in style and is usually leather and brown in color.
You do not necessarily need to use a brown bag but make sure it matches the rest of your Lois Lane costume.
Lois Lane Necklace and Name Tag
|In order to make sure everyone knows that you are wearing a Lois Lane costume buy or make a Lois Lane name tag and wear it around your neck on a necklace.
If you make your own make sure to include her name and an ID photo and make it look like it is her ID badge for her job at The Daily Planet.
Because Lois Lane ID badges are so cheap we would personally recommend that you buy one over making your own.
