Rolling Rock Spartan Costume

Behold, the Rolling Rock Spartan! It’s a very well done suit of armor, made by Yunk28. He wanted to combine his love of armor with his love of Rolling Rock. Fantastic job! I really like the accessories, too: Helmet, sword, shield– even sandals!

Read the tutorial on Instructables, if you’d like to try to make your own.

For the torso armor I cut the boxes into diamond pieces and attached them together using twist ties. I attached the pieces to make a chain-mail type armor that is form fitting to my body and made it easier to move around. Each piece I also covered in crystal clear packing tape to make it water resistant…

How to Make a Cookie Bra

Here’s a fun idea for Valentine’s Day… Ladies, why not make a cookie bra, molded from your chest?

LOL, what a unique idea! Instructables.com will show you how. Basically, you make a mold of your chest with plastic strips, and cover it in tinfoil. Then add cookie dough, and bake it in the oven. After frosting and decorating, the result is a wearable, edible bra. Awesome!

Transforming into Santa

How many people dressed as Santa Clause this Christmas? I’m sure many of you did.

Cannibalman took advantage of his awesome beard for his Santa costume. He posted a slideshow of his transformation on Imgur. A little bit of Snow White hair color goes a long way, his costume turned out great! Well done, Sir.

Mind Blowing Custom Hulk Costume

This is definitely the best Hulk costume I’ve ever seen. This won the RPF’s 2012 Halloween contest, and with good reason. Totally, completely mindblowing.

This costume is work of Biopredator, a well known costumer and member of the Replica Prop Forum. It took him 120 hours and $600 to make this costume.

I encourage you to read his post, it’s full of many more in-progress photos, Avengers group shots, and a complete tutorial on how he made it. I found it a fascinating read. Stunning work, Sir, and congratulations on winning the contest!

I’ve made some creative Halloween costumes over the years but nothing as elaborate as the Hulk Costume I just built. It all started last month when my brothers talked me into making a Hulk Costume so we could be the Avengers for Halloween this year so I started on the build early last month. Read More…
