Introduction: Nacho Libre Costume

Picture of Nacho Libre Costume

Purchasing a costume for a fat guy is almost impossible. Youll either end up as a clergy member, prison inmate or a pirate. All the same stuff. Boring. I went through a bunch of ideas (Stay Puft, Grimace, Snuffelupagus) but this is the only one that stuck. NACHO LIBRE!

---The mask was store bought.
---The cape was as well but I added the gold accent on the back.
---The shirt was custom made of a fat guys chest at fatguyfriendlyshirts.com. (People LOVED that shirt!) I figured it was better than showing MY fatness!
---The shorts were simple excersize shorts I cut to look like wrestling trunks.
---The blue tights were womens tights bought at the Body Shop.
---The boots were just red vinyl hot glued to my shoes and wrapped around my leg to look like boots.
---Shoestrings were glued as well.

Had a BLAST with the costume and the mask actually let me drink as the night went on!

Awesome job putting that costume together. Simple pieces that look great all together.

Much thanks! The boots were the biggest pain but I think they came out rather well considering what they are.
