King of Spades Card Costume

The King is Here!

Costume type:  Costumes for Men
Category:Halloween Costumes

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

A word from Michael, the 'King of Spades Card' costume creator:

Had a bunch of boxes and scratch paper hanging around and was thinking of what to make out of them. Halloween was approaching so thought of making something iconic and catchy. Decided with making a Card!

So King of Spades it is!

It was going through my head as to how I will make it pop out and make myself fit into it and this is what I came up with... A card with half of it popping out to make me fit in it. Decided to have the crown and beard separate initially and also decided to have the sword pop out as well.

Everything here is hand made with only the spades and K printed out. Materials are corrugated boxes, scratch paper, home made paste (flour cornstarch water) markers. The king is hand drawn by the way. The process was mostly cut, tape together, paste with layers of scratch paper. And there you go.

Used it in our office Halloween costume day and everyone loved it and wanted a picture. Hope everyone else likes it. :)

Wow! The playing card costumes I've seen in the past did a sandwich board with straps going over the shoulders. This one is so much better that those. He literally pops right out.
