HULK costume

Contest Winner

This is a costume I did for 2010. I made it with huge hands and arms(the arms have a clothes dryer metal hose at the elbow joint for movement and a wood rod inside to move the arm), tall feet and legs(the feet have 2×4 stilts built right in to them)for the paints i used purple spandex and tried to pull and glue it across a foam muscle base.The entire body is made from hand carved foam muscles,a layer of white spandex glued for a smooth layer and liquid latex over that.Almost all of the materials can be purchased at your local fabric shop or even picked up from stuff you may have laying around your house. the entire suite is only 30 lbs and is over 8 foot tall. This project took 3 1/2 weeks working 6-8 hours a day. I hope you enjoy it.

This is one of the most incredible (pardon the pun) costumes I have ever seen. Can't believe anyone would ever give you second place in any contest!

Thanks alot, but it isn't what the judges think at that point of a contest, its the crowd. Unfortunately the winner had more movement and could better position himself on the stage because he was small. My costume was 8 feet tall didn't have the ability (yet) to jump on stage! Next year I'm going all out with 6 homemade costumes 3 will be new 3 redone.

I LOVE IT. I think this gives me an idea for next year!

WTG!
Costume looks good. Glad you won second at the Contest in Akron. Did you make it to the boneyard in Mayfield Heights?

After one night in Akron, I had had enough on the stilts. No way I was doing two nights in a row.
