Power Girl Cosplay Outfit Ideas

Your Guide to Incredible Power Girl Cosplay Outfit Ideas

Super speed strength, x-ray vision, and so many other abilities. Power Girl is a stand-out from the DC comics and a great character to cosplay as. But to unleash your inner Power Girl, you’ll need a guide to find incredible cosplay outfits.

Superwoman and Supergirl may often get the spotlight, but the latest buzz is that it’s Power Girl who could get her feature film treatment. The Supergirl film buzz, though, for now, is more wishlist than it even is speculation. Posted on Nerdist, it seems that many feel it’s high time the iconic character is featured on the big screen. 

This request comes after the announcement of Supergirl ending after its Sixth Season. The series suffered from lowered ratings and shorter seasons due to the pandemic and competition. This may seem discouraging for a potential TV show or film about Power Girl, but many argue that there’s a different way to see it. 

Instead of dedicating an entire show to Power Girl, many see promise in adding her to another series, such as Superman and Lois. By doing so, Power Girl will be introduced to audiences but with less risk. Power Girl could still be showcased as she deserves to be– and also deepen the existing show. 

But no matter where you fall on the debate, there’s no denying that Power Girl is a great character to cosplay as. In this guide, I’ll tell you about Power Girl’s personality, strengths, backstory, and weaknesses. I’ll also give you fantastic power girl cosplay outfit ideas so you can represent the character with confidence. 

Who is Power Girl? 

In my opinion, Power Girl is highly underrated. The problem is people mistake Power Girl as being the same as Supergirl– and while there is a strong connection between the two characters, they aren’t the same. Power Girl very much deserves her cosplay, and here’s what you need to know about her backstory. 

Who is Power girl

Who created Powergirl?

Power Girl, who is also known by the names Kara Zor-L and Karen Starr, was introduced as a DC comic superhero in the January and February edition 1976 of All-Star Comics. 

Is Kara Zor Power Girl?

Kara Zor-El is another name for Power Girl. This name is used mostly to refer to her childhood; it’s only when she reached adult age that she became known as Power Girl. 

What is Power Girl’s, Origin Story? 

Power Girl is Superman’s cousin in an alternate reality. In this way, she exists alongside a different universe– but one in which she is related to Superman and also originally from Krypton.

Like Superman, she was sent via rocket ship to Earth as Krypton was being destroyed. Only in this case, Power Girl arrived on Earth-Two, the alternate universe version of Earth. 

Is Power Girl in Prime Earth?

Power Girl has had countless adventures, and one of them happened in Prime Earth. During an alien invasion, Power Girl was sent to Prime Earth, void of memories, and left near Harley Quinn. What ensued was a series of events, including meeting a Fake Superman and struggling to recraft a bright society. 

Is Power Girl the same as Supergirl?

The reason why Power Girl is mixed up with Supergirl is confusing: they’re technically the same person. Loyal to DC’s propensity for multiverse realities, Power Girl and Supergirl in that they are both related to Superman in the same way, have the same parents, and both originate from Krypton.

However, the differences between Supergirl and Power Girl lie in their personality and their strengths and weaknesses. The idea is that the alternative universe results in Superman’s cousin having a different set of abilities and personalities due to other changes. So, cosplaying as Power Girl is less common– but also quite different than cosplaying as Supergirl. 

Is Power Girl a villain?

For some reason, there’s been talk and miscommunications about Power Girl being a villain, but that’s simply not true. Power Girl is as much of a hero as Super Girl and has been featured in iconic superhero teams ranging from the Suicide Squad to the Justice Society, Birds of Prey, and the Justice League. 

How did Power Girl get pregnant?

One thing you may not know about Power Girl is that she had a baby. Her pregnancy was revealed during the Zero Hour event, where she gave birth to a son, Equinox. The pregnancy was not a happy one, as Power Girl became pregnant after her grandfather forced a demon’s seed.

Equinox grew up to be a villain– which is perhaps why so many falsely believe Power Girl to be a villain. Equinox also has superhuman strength like his mother, as well as pyrokinesis and cryokinesis. 

Power Girl Personality

Power Girl Personality

Now that you know some of Power Girl’s backstory, what about her personality? She doesn’t have the same personality as Super Girl. One of the main differences is that she’s said to be much more mature and controlled than Supergirl. She may be known as a great fighter, but she has a certain level of control that Supergirl doesn’t have.

She’s very focused and secure and doesn’t spend time focusing on her past. While she’s polite and kind to others, she’s incredibly powerful in her ability to tackle challenges without complaint. In many ways, she has much of the drive and toughness of Super Girl, but her power is also in her ability to control her emotions and stay focused on the task at hand. 

How smart is Power Girl? 

In addition to her mental and physical toughness, Power Girl is also known to be clever. She’s able to memorize information. Some even compare her abilities as only second to a computer program. It’s a lesser-known attribute since she doesn’t often get to use this ability, at least in Power Girl comics.

Power Girl Strengths and Weaknesses 

As is true of all heroes, Power Girl has strengths and weaknesses. After all, it wouldn’t be that interesting to cosplay as a character without any downsides. Power Girl, like her cousin Superman and her alternative persona, has superhuman strength, agility, and speed, as well as x-ray and heat vision, super hearing, and a freezing breath attack. 

How much can Powergirl lift?

It’s hard to say exactly how much Power Girl can lift, but it’s another strength of hers. In one comic, she lifted something that weighed around a million tons. She’s not stronger than Superman, and she’s as strong as Super Girl– though she has the advantage of longer attacks due to her maturity and focus. 

What is Power Girl’s weakness?

Power Girl has an unexpected natural weakness: natural items. This means anything from the Earth, like a piece of wood, can diminish her powers. Unlike her cousin, Power Girl is immune to Kryptonite. However, Power Girl also needs to sleep, as she experiences natural fatigue unless she’s garnering power from sunlight, the way her cousin can. 

Who can beat Power Girl?

Many have confidence that Power Girl can beat many adversaries–including She-Hulk, Thanos, and Ultron– but there are some enemies she might struggle with more. Doctor Strange, Doctor Doom, Loki, and Absorbing Man would be quite challenging, but it’s hard to say for sure. 

Power Girl Quotes

Unfortunately, Power Girl doesn’t have many quotes to pull from, but she does have a few from Injustice: Gods Among Us:

  • “Karen Starr of Earth-2”
  • “Karen, I love that cape.”
  • How many friggin’ Earths are there?”
  • Ever feel like you don’t fit in?”

Power Girl Costume Explanation 

Power Girl has a distinct style with her costume. Her look features a fitted (often depicted as spandex) white bodysuit. The bodysuit is distinguished by a high collar, a scoop cut out, and long sleeves. She always has a red cape trailing behind her, as well as knee-high boots and long gloves– normally blue.

She wears a red belt with a gold medallion around her bodysuit, and you can catch her with red tights or just bare legs. Her hair is medium blond with a shaggy bob cut above the shoulders, sometimes with side-swept bangs. 

Why Does Power Girl have a hole in her costume?

There’s some debate, but the hole in the costume is simply referring to the deep scoop neck of Power Girl’s white bodysuit. It’s mostly to differentiate her costume, but also to draw attention to her figure. Some fans claim the hole is symbolic of a flaw and a weakness as opposed to Superman. 

However, the new Power Girl costume– which not everyone loves– is more or less the same, except the bodysuit is now a full pantsuit with a higher neckline. 

Power Girl Costume Ideas 

Now that you know all about Power Girl’s personality, back story, strengths, and weaknesses, I’ll give you some of my favorite ideas for costume cosplay. You find most of your Power Girl costumes on Amazon. While not perfect, they do a nice job of representing Power Girl’s costume as displayed in the comics.

I’m focusing on the classic Power Girl costume, but I’ll also include some full white pantsuits if you like the new version of her costume, under my family buying recommendations. 

As a final note, be wary of buying Power Girl cosplay just anywhere. I came across several listings on websites that have failing ratings from the Better Business Bureau and a history of poor customer service, including websites designed for Cosplay costumes. 

White Bodysuit 

Of course, you’re going to need a great white bodysuit, or you can find a pantsuit if you prefer the new vs comic costume style for Power Girl (see under Final Buying Recommendations).

I’ve included a mix of white bodysuits, some of which nail the style more, and others are a little bit of a creative twist. All of these could easily become staples for your wardrobe, both for casual and night-outs.

Red Tights/ Leggings

Now, these are optional. Many times you’ll see Power Girl sans red tights. But I like adding tights because it provides a bit more coverage and is simply more comfortable. Plus the red tights add a bold pop of color that emphasizes her power as a character.

Since I’ve expanded the definition and added leggings, some of these work for lounging around the house.

Now here’s where nailing Power Girl’s outfit gets tricky. If you want the more costumey look, sometimes you’re better off with a full-body Power Girl costume for that red belt and gold buckle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Does Kara get pregnant in Supergirl?

Answer: Just as Power Girl had a child, Supergirl also has a child though, in a more happy way. Kara has a romantic fling with Mon-El during an Earth invasion. Their daughter is Rose Rose.

Question: What’s Power Girl’s jewelry style? 

Answer: Power Girl isn’t typically depicted wearing jewelry. The only element of her style that incorporates accessories is her gloves and the metallic chain detail with her red cape. It’s tricky to find a red cape that comes with metallic detail, but you can always opt for a simple gold brooch as an accent. 

Question: Why can’t Supergirl fly in space?

Answer: It’s unclear where this idea came from. In theory, Supergirl doesn’t have any obstacles to flying in space. As she is from Krypton, she stores solar energy and should be able to fly in space as her family members can. 

Question: Can Supergirl beat Wonder Woman?

Answer: Something you may not know is that Power Girl’s regular universe counterpart has battled Wonder Woman more than once. Unfortunately for Supergirl, she lost the battle to Wonder Woman twice. There’s no denying that Super Girl has incredible powers, but Wonder Woman is more strategic and experienced. In this way, I’d argue that Power Girl may be able to defeat Wonder Woman in ways where Supergirl falls short. 

Question: Who is Powergirl vs Supergirl?

Answer: Powergirl and Supergirl are both cousins of Superman, but they exist in a different universe. Power Girl is said to be the more mature and experienced of the two, and exist in the alternate universe. Supergirl is better known by many fans since she exists in the regular universe.

Final Thoughts

Power Girl deserves more attention, and she’s a powerful character to cosplay as. She’s arguably a stronger hero than Supergirl, with her gift for memorization, experience, and focus. Embrace her confidence and concentration for the best cosplaying experience possible. 

Final Buying Recommendation: Full Body Jumpsuit

Embrace the new Power Girl outfit by ditching the regular bodysuit and tights for a comfy full-body jumpsuit– just replace these with one of my bodysuit picks above. Jumpsuits may be more comfortable, cover more, and are great for cool weather. They’re also very much in style right now, so as a bonus, you can get double use out of this and wear it outside of cosplay, too. 

MEALIYA Women Embroidery Zipper High Neck Bodycon Jumpsuit 

Sure, this isn’t the exact look of the new Power Girl jumpsuit costume. But it happens to be of the top-rated Amazon jumpsuits and popular, with nearly 1,500 ratings and counting.

The polyester fabric provides a great stretch for a soft and comfortable fit. The bodycon look is very much in theme, but even with full coverage, it’s more lightweight than you’d expect.

Wear it for your cosplay, and dress it up for a right out with accessories. They do recommend sizing down, as the suit runs large. Buy Here
