This is a costume I did for 2010. I made it with huge hands and arms(the arms have a clothes dryer metal hose at the elbow joint for movement and a wood rod inside to move the arm), tall feet and legs(the feet have 2×4 stilts built right in to them)for the paints i used purple spandex and tried to pull and glue it across a foam muscle base.The entire body is made from hand carved foam muscles,a layer of white spandex glued for a smooth layer and liquid latex over that.Almost all of the materials can be purchased at your local fabric shop or even picked up from stuff you may have laying around your house. the entire suite is only 30 lbs and is over 8 foot tall. This project took 3 1/2 weeks working 6-8 hours a day. I hope you enjoy it.
