    While Domino Lady wore a mask to hide her identity, I wouldn't go as far to say she wore a costume. That honor might go to the Woman In Red who wore a distinctive costume that served to identify her.


I guess that would in part depend on your definition of costume. For instance, does Amazona's red bodice constitute a costume? She premiered the same month and year as the Woman in Red.

Some heroines who premiered earlier definitely wore costumes during at least part of their career, though I can't always tell if they wore it earlier than March 1940, the month in which Amazona and the Woman in Red first appeared:
Ritty (September 1939, Minimidget's sidekick) wore a short red dress with a little cape.
The Magician from Mars (November 1939) had at least one quite distinctive costume featuring a cape and a beret.
Vana (December 1939, partner of Martan the Marvel Man) wore a suit and helmet seemingly based on ancient Greek armour.
Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle (February 1940) kept wearing the same set of clothes, although obviously her way of transforming her head into a skull while in action was more eye-catching ;\-\)
Taia of Thebes (February 1940, partner of Ibis the Invincible) wore a short dress with an "Egyptian-style" collar very reminiscent of the one worn by Ozymandias from Watchmen.
