The Book of Life Manolo Sanchez Costume
Manolo Sanchez from the Book of Life
|Costume type:||Costumes for Men|
This homemade costume for men entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Martin, the 'Manolo Sanchez from the Book of Life' costume creator:
I am wearing the costume. I loved the movie a lot that I had a friend help me out in making me a Manolo Sanchez lifesize costume.
Given that Manolo was like a block wooden type character, we tried to copy the whole look using and cutting rubber pieces and piecing them together. Think as if you were putting several boxes together.
Used super strength glue for everything to hold and let it sit a couple of days. Arms were linked by small thumb tack like link screws and bore a hole in between where the arm could go through.For the decor on the costume, decided to spray paint left of thin rubber pieces and again glued it on the costume and printed other detail through paper stickers.
The pink socks were just sewn from a pink cloth and put over a pair of black pants to act as the colored bottom area similar to the actual character.
That's about it, hope you enjoy the Manolo piece I wore, thank you! :)
