This homemade costume for men entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Mike, the 'Sandman' costume creator:

I wanted to pay homage to my favorite comic book web slingerís most underrated of foes, The Sandman.

Once I found "the shirt", I complimented this basic but interesting look with brown pajama pants for the bottoms and casual, dressy shoes. To appear that I am transforming into sand, I donned a Phantom of the Opera-like half-mask that I caked with several pounds of sand from Michael's. I sprayed the clear mask with an adhesive and let the sand sit on the surface overnight while brushing off the remainder in the morning.

To complete a sandy appearance, gold makeup was applied around my mouth to simulate a transformation.

I also wore a rubber monster hand that I coated with gold acrylic paint and used what sand I had left over from my mask to wreak havoc on that pesky wall-crawler (a souvenir doll I had lying around).
