So my friend Big dave asked me to build him a “Thing” suit from marvel comics for the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo.
-Special note that some of the pictures do not correlate exactly with the directions. This is because I work on the costume as a whole instead of specific segments.
-You may get burned a few times as some of the rocks can be tiny and hot glue is ... well.. Hot
- You may get lost in the madness of putting hundreds of rocks on a suit.. it helps is your cut out a bunch of rocks first and then just randomly glue them.. and THEN start cutting rocks into particular shapes to fit the empty spaces.
Step 1: Materials
-several packets of craft foam
-high density foam (the foam used in weight rooms, or underneath dryers).. we found a roll at big lots for about $20
-buckles (got a bag from ebay)
-double sided roll of velcro (from home depot)
-mickey mouse hands from party city
-white lycra spandex fabric (for eye pupils)
-old ski mask
-plexi glass ( or just some type of clear solid square) for eyeballs
