Introduction: Minecraft Costume Tutorial (Any Size)

We are going to turn a child's room into a minecraft nerd cave. Wih a lot of work we can do it!!!!

Step 1: Getting Started

If you want to make a Steve, zombie, or really anything, alls you will need is:
•Scissors, a box cutter, an exacto blade, and pretty much anything you can cut cardboard with(or foamboard)
•Foamboard or cardboard, whichever you'd like
•Paint, all colors needed to make the creatures you want from minecraft
•A hot glue gun
•A reference picture(easily found by searching (INSERT CREATURE YOU WANT TO BUILD) Minecraft Papercraft on in the images

Step 2: Getting All the Shapes

Now that you have have all your supplies in order, take out the reference sheet ands card board/ foam board. Cut your costume according to your height, for zombies, or Steve, the head is always 1/3 the height if the body and twice as wide as the body. The arms are always the same height as the body but only half the width. Same with the legs. For measurements on other creatures just look it up. To figure out how large each seperate pixels size, take the # of the width, length, and height ( should all be the same ), and divide that by 8. That's how long and tall each pixel should be (in inches)

Step 3: Assembling

Now, put the shapes together to form whatever part you cut out! You will now have one part of a zombie, creeper, whatever you chose. Cut holes in the bottom of the head, the top inside part of the arms, the top inside and top if the legs.

Step 4: Painting the Base Coat

Now, depending on what color, of what part, of what creature, paint the base coat. Whichever color is most used on that part of whatever creature, paint that part completely that color. Repeat this pattern for all part. Ex:Zombie arm=Green Skeleton head= white.

Step 5: Where to Paint

Now that you have painted the base coat, let it dry. After it is dry, take a pencil, and very lightly for every 2 inches both ways draw horizontal and vertical lines. This should show each pixel for every 2 inches. Now you will know where to paint. So, for every pixel, it should be 2x2 inches.

Step 6: Reference Picture Time

Now, take out your reference picture and start to paint. Of course, before this, you must repeat all the steps before this for each part. Now paint the creature you have as seen in the reference picture. All different shades of all colors.

Step 7: Assembling

Now it's time to put this on, you now have what is probably a Steve or zombie costume
