|Costume type:||Costumes for Men|
This homemade costume for men entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Nick, the 'Juggernaut' costume creator:
Im Wearing this costume. Im the big red guy in the middle
I have been a fan of Marvel and the X-men ever since I was a child. I was always into the big characters( u know the tuff guys that always smash things. My character is "the Juggernaut"
He possesses incredible amount of strength, invulnerability, and stamina. Once the Juggernaut starts moving he cant be stopped. Nobody messes with him.
I used green cushion foam for the body, e.v.a foam (yoga mats) for the feet, and spandex fabric under latex for the skin.
Tools= scissors, razor blade, electric knife, spray adhesive, gorilla tape, hot glue gun, and a dremel.
Step 1- rolled foam tubes around my arm legs and body
Step 2- rolled another layer of foam around bicep, forearm, thigh, calf, and chest
Step 3- carve and fade to your liking
Step 4- carve muscles and glue to appropriate places (its all eyeballing)
Step 5- once u have the shape u like than spray glue spandex fabric over the carved body (small ares at a time and pull tight)
Step 6- spread a thin layer of latex all over character surface, let dry (repeat)
step 7- use hard foam (ex bogey boards) for feet, add layers for height, cover in foam and carve
step 8 - rolled foam around finished calf of character (for boot leg top)
Step 9- do step 5,6 for the boot
Step 10- cut strips of e.v.a foam for arm bands, and spray painted
Step 11- found the best shaped plastic bowl I could find cut out eyes and mouth with dremel and spray painted
Step 12- for the fist I just layered e.v.a foam and carved then layerd greem foam over and carved
Step 13- do step 5, 6 for the fist
People mouths dropped. There were comments like "I love your costume", "you did an awesome job", "man that things sick", holy s@^& how u do that?", my fav was "that's the best costume ive ever seen"
The Juggernaut is fully moveable, and u can run in it. It stands 7 ft tall and weighs about 45 lbs total (the feet weighing 10Lbs themselves)
