This homemade costume for men entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Cj, the 'Power Glove' costume creator:
Hi and thanks for reading. I desired a costume idea that had to meet the following criteria: (1) be creative/original...meaning I haven't seen someone else execute the idea, (2) be something vintage/old, (3) be challenging to execute, and (4) be possible to execute with only Duck Tape and reclaimed cardboard.
While I jammed out to three Halloween stations on Pandora during execution, I spent an approximate total time of 36 hours on pondering, planning, measuring, cutting, and taping numerous pieces together. While measuring is vital, I believe most of my execution successfully relies on my "feel" for what's best when considering the desire end-result...including the unknown variables. For example, I didn't have a clear vision on how I'd "wear" the costume. Meaning I didn't know for sure where my face/head would need to be...I sensed it'd be in one of three locations, but I knew I should focus on the quality of the costume first and then where my head would be located second. Fortunately, it all worked out well in the end.
Several people commented that I have way too much time on my hands. That opinion has a negative connotation, but I am proud to spend time, energy, and finances on creative endeavors that are worthwhile for my talents and interest. Hooray!
