Complete any Captain America costume with a Captain America Child Shield, which is twenty-three inches in diameter and a plastic vacuum formed children's shield, and a pair of Captain America Child Gloves. 

A Captain America theme party should definitely have a red, white, and blue color scheme. Decorate your space with balloons, streamers, and paper goods in those colors. For some extra decorations hang white stars (like Captain America has on his shield and chest) from ceilings, doorways, and windows. For food, serve your guests sandwiches cut into the shapes of stars and traditional American foods, like cheeseburgers and hot dogs.

Spider-Man is also a great theme for a superhero party. For a boy’s party, go with a red and blue color scheme. For a girl’s party, you can do red and blue or pink and black for your color scheme. For scene setters and photo backdrops you can paint large sheets of butcher block paper or cardboard in either pink or red for the background and paint black spider webs on them. Hang the spider webs on a wall for kids to take pictures in front of and to add color to your party space. You can also buy fake spiders and hang them from fishing line from windows, doorways, and other places or attach them to the paper/cardboard spider webs. For food and beverages, you can serve Green Goblin punch, a cheese ball covered in crushed blue tortilla chips and with black pipe cleaners attached to look like spider legs, and a taco dip with salsa as the top layer and sour cream squirted on top to look like Spiderman’s face.
