Hey, this is my first Instructable, I know I've left out some things such as pictures for certain steps, but i never thought of making it an Instructable at the time so I'll try to explain what I did at the best of my ability and i hope you enjoy it. :D 

What did I make?
So, my school holds a sports day every year where we get dressed up in our House colours and either compete in events or watch.
Being that I'm in year 12 I thought that would put some effort into what I was going to wear on that day. I was in Wolverton House which is the red house of the school so it seemed fitting to come as Hellboy for the day and make the best costume I possible could with little to no budget.
I would like to say a big thank you to my girlfriend Stephanie for helping me put this together!

How did i make it?
Most of this costume is made from cardboard i had lying around plus a hot glue gun and paint. the other things I used I either already had, borrowed, got for free or bought for quite cheap. for example the coat I had was my father's horse riding coat that he no longer uses and  the make up only cost me a few dollars.

Where did I make it?
I made all of the costume at my house and at my girlfriend's house, whenever I was there we would both work on parts of the costume over the course of a week.

What did you learn?
I managed to find away around money for most parts of this build from asking others for help to finding old things that could be modified to suite what I needed it for, it just requires some imagination and effort. also eyelash glue and getting it in your hair isn't very nice.

This Instructable will be split in to the main parts of my costume.
- Right Arm of Doom
- The Samaritan
- Horns
- Tail
- Belt
- Make up
- Putting the whole thing together

p.s. this isn't exact to the movie because I didn't want to spend any money or not much but I do think it came out very well.

Wow, you certainly got a lot of mileage for the cost. I love the overall look, it's fitting and there is not a single piece that does not go well with the others. Thanks for sharing!
