In “Birds of Prey,” the always-impressive Ewan McGregor gives us a fresh take on the evil Black Mask. If you are looking for a sleek costume involving a fashionable suit, the Black Mask costume is a sure bet to make an impression at your next Halloween bash or comic-con.

In this how-to, I’ll explain what you’ll need to create this hip and current take on the DC villain’s classic look. The mask is the most important part of the outfit, even if you need all the elements to set it off. We will help you select the right mask for this getup.

How to Dress like Black Mask fromĀ Birds of Prey

The Mask:

Most importantly for a Black Mask costume is the mask itself. It’s crucial to pick a mask that fits your head properly because it covers your complete face. The mask resembles a spooky black skull. The likeness to Red Skull’s face in the Captain America flicks is striking.

The Suit:

The Black Mask costume is a masterclass in sartorial elegance, and it all starts with the sharply tailored black suit that forms the foundation of the ensemble.

The sharply-dressed villain shines on-screen in a modern and slim-fit suit, elevated by the addition of tasteful gold accents and detailing.

While the suit worn in the film may not be an exact replica, it serves as a worthy inspiration for those looking to emulate the iconic villain’s style.
