This homemade costume for men entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Nicole, the 'Electro' costume creator:
My husband Floyd Gardner is wearing this costume. We got the inspiration from the new Spiderman movie. We used a motorcross armored jacket, motorcycle boots, black workout sweat shorts over black jeans, a black turtleneck under the jacket, baseball knee guards, foam floor tiles, UV face paint, white UV glow contacts, wire hangers, black electric tape, hot glue, silver spray paint, regular white and blue paint and battery operated UV black lights. I formed an around the chest harness out of wire hangers and wooden dowels to hold the UV lights in the correct position to shine on his face. Then took the black tape and covered the whole harness is in it. I used white and blue paint to hand paint the lightning bolts all over the motorcross jacket. The collar is carved out of a foam floor tile, spray painted silver, hand drawn on designs, two screws put on, and hot glued it onto the jacket. Once the contact lenses were in and he was dressed, I hand painted his whole head and neck first with the white UV paint, then the blue, I dabbed a few spots of red, then I hand drew all the lightning bolts in white, silver and a touch of red to give them definition. I hand carved the small pager for his head from the floor foam and hand painted it with a mix of regular and UV paint to look like the one in the movie and so it would glow. I then used eyelash glue to stick it on to his head. He put everything on and I adjusted the lights to make him glow.
