This week I’m offering five costumes you can make at home with things you probably have or can get quickly. Find the others @austin360.com/raisingaustin.
Watch this video and see how we did it. (The instructions are also below.) Share your own DIY costumes #360Costumes.
Superman T-shirt or blue shirt and gold marker
Blue long-sleeved shirt or sweatshirt
Red towel, sheet or a red T-shirt
Blue tights or blue sweatpants
If you have a Superman T-shirt use it. If not take a blue T-shirt and a gold marker to create the logo. Wear it on top of a long-sleeved blue shirt. You can add padding with towels or a pillow to create muscles if you like.
Pin a red towel, sheet or T-shirt to the back of the blue shirt with safety pins. If you have time, you can create the Superman logo on the cape with a gold marker or yellow construction paper taped on.
On the bottom, wear red underwear on top of blue tights. Finish with boots.
Change out the color scheme and shirt and you’ve got Batman or a lucha libre wrestler.
