Step 1: CLOTHES + SHINS + BELT
Put on your shoes, tights, shorts over tights, black shirt. *on the shoes, we put some blue tape on the shoes to make them more “freeze”-like.
SHINS (image 1)
We used baseball shin guards and painted them silver and blue for contrast to the black leggings. I just use the natural shapes and details of the guards to determine what to paint.
BELT (image 2)
took the Batman belt and spray painted it silver. it was too short for my friend to wear so i added a belt to extend it’s length.
I took the chest pads and colored them black, silver, and blue. I didn’t want to permanently alter the pads, so i covered some parts in colored duct tape.
I also added a touch light (painted blue) to the center. I drilled tubes into the light that i just tucked into the collar of the neck pads.
Step 3: Forearms + Hands
I painted the soccer shin guards silver and blue along its original details.
For the hands, i just took some cardboard, painted them blue, and then glued them onto the glove tops.
