This homemade costume for adults entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Dezaray, the 'The Invisible Man' costume creator:

I saw a picture of an invisible man costume but I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. I put a wire coat hanger through a slit I cut in the back of my jeans to make them stay open and appear empty. I then took 2 coat hangers and attached them to the suspenders and then put them on the jeans to make the jeans 'stand'. I couldn't figure out how to make the jeans truly look empty until I got a brilliant idea to cut the back of the 'empty' jeans and the front of another pair of jeans and sewed that together to make it easy to put the costume on and make it look like it's walking. I found the trench coat at a thrift shop and cut the liner open and was behind the line and pretty much became invisible. To make the hat appear like it was floating was the hardest part. I had seen other people use coat hangers to make a hat "float" but that wasn't invisible enough for me. I happen to have an awesome co-worker who had some scrap acrylic that she gave me. I used that to attach the hat to and make it look perfect. I attached the glasses to fishing line and the look was finished.

trying to make this costume and am totally confused on the pants I don't understand the sewing of the two pairs. help please

For the pants that were going in the front, I cut them on the back side from the center up to the knee then horizontal across the knee so that essentially the knee down lays flat. I did the same thing for the pants I was wearing except I cut them in the front side up to the knee. I then sewed the bottoms together up to the knee. Another thing you could do is just hot glue the bottoms together or cut a slit in the back of the jeans in front around where your knees are and then step into just the knee part. Let me know if this clears up your question

I am going to try and make this costume for carnaval (in Aalst, Belgium) but I have some questions...

Was it difficult to go to the bathroom ?
How dit the sleeves remained "empty" ?
Were the coathangers strong enough to hold the pants open if someone bumpt into you ?

Sorry for the late response. I just now saw this!

No it wasn't difficult as I had the pants in front of me then my pants. I could sit down all day and have no issue.

The sleeves were empty because I had cut holes in the lining of the jacket for my hands to come out of. I also had cut holes in the elbow of the jacket to slip my arms in them if needed.

I had no issues with people bumping into me but I believe they would stay open. I had people trying to give me space because I freaked them out lol.

Thank you so much for your instructions; I think I have everything figured out with one exception. What does the jacket actually sit on?

How did you get the coat to stay up?

#7 comment by Dezaray October 20, 2017

I am in the lining of the coat and stuffed the arms with grocery sacks to help form the arms of the jacket

How did you make the scrap acrylic stay up for the hat?

#9 comment by Dezaray October 8, 2018

It was glued into a small opening I created. I had a small piece of acrylic inside the coat horizontally that it was glued to

Could you see well through the lining? We've tried several coats and the lining has been too thick to see through!

#11 comment by Jonny Diaz October 18, 2018

How did you keep the suspenders up?

#12 comment by Dezaray October 18, 2018

Teresa: I had a little bit of a hard time seeing but I cut tiny holes in the lining for me to see out of.

Jonny: I lined the suspenders with wire coat hangers and then covered the wire hanger with a tape the matched the suspenders so it looked seamless
