About Hawkeye in MCU’s Avengers
Clint Barton, or “Hawkeye” as he is known for short, is a long-serving member of the Avengers. We first see him in action when Loki and his alien army attack New York City.
Clint was formerly a special agent with SHIELD but later defected over to the ranks of the Avengers, where he provides the team with much-needed support from a distance. Hawkeye has no superhuman abilities but makes up for them in agility and superb shooting skills. He carries a customized bow-and-arrow set as his primary weapon of choice, which comes complete with an automated aiming system.
Making the Costume
To make your own Hawkeye costume, you’ll need a blonde wig, a sleeveless shirt and pants, leather boots, blue goggles, an arm guard, a brown quiver belt, and an arrow pouch. You can find them in any Halloween store or at one of the online retailers listed below.
