Today we are continuing our Homemade Halloween series. This strongman suit complete with tattoos is really easy to make. This strongman was impressing everyone with his amazing feats. Find full instructions below and click here for our whole series.
Materials Needed: Red Tshirt, Wrapping Paper Cardboard Roll, Two Black Balloons, Elastic, Nylons, Sharpies, Moustache, and some stripey shorts (we got ours at American Apparel), black and white paint.
Step 1: For the tank top we modified a red tshirt to create a low cut tank top. You’ll need basic sewing skills for this.
Step 2: To make the barbells cut the wrapping paper roll to the right size and paint black. Blow up the balloons and paint numbers on them. Tie Elastic to one balloon and thread through the tube, then tie to other balloon so they are held tight by the elastic.
Step 3: Stretch out nylons over a piece of cardboard and draw tattoos all over, sew the pieces onto the red tank top.
