|Costume type:||Costumes for Men|
This homemade costume for men entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kristopher, the 'Hulk' costume creator:
I have always wanted to attempt a large project for Halloween and this year I decided to go for it and create a Hulk costume. I am already a big guy (6'7") but needed to have the massive muscles that make a Hulk costume.
With this in mind I planned out how to create a foam suit and then using various thicknesses of foam to carve and glue on muscles. This step was a lengthy procedure and wasn't actually finished until the day of my Halloween event. Purple shorts were also added with a zipper and a second zipper was added in the back of the chest piece. Finally liquid latex was painted over the entire suit in multiple layers to get the costume as smooth as possible, in the time I had this was two layers, however I would recommend doing three layers to achieve a consistent smoothness. Finally I painted on Acrylic paint to achieve the green look. This completed the chest and shorts. For the shoes I used the same process. I used a hulk mask that I custom painted and applied liquid latex too to create a neck piece. Finally I used my collectable Hulk Hands for the hands in my costume with a small paint job on them.
It was truly a crazy time to make this costume and required a lot of effort, logging roughly 100+ hours into it, was all worth it though to see the reactions of people at the party. Hope you all like the costume!
