Frankenstein's Monster Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
The undead monster, Frankenstein, has a very un-kept and simple sort of style. In many depictions of his character, he is wearing clothing in a darker green color, somewhat similar to his one skin color.
This costume is based on that sort of look, with the addition of some very cool platform boots, as well as detailed but simple costume makeup. A Frankenstein costume is a look you can get creative with and have fun while wearing it at the same time.
How to Make a Frankenstein’s Monster DIY Costume
|1||T-shirt, black||The base of this costume is a plain black T-shirt; do not be afraid to make it look a little bit dirty or creased.|
|2||Blazer, green||Frankenstein wears his blazer in a very large size in order to make himself look large and disheveled. It is important to get this green blazer in a size that will fit you large, and try to distress the fabric as well.|
|3||Pants, green, cargo||These simple green cargo pants should be chopped off an inch or two above the hem, and have distressing added to them to be more like Frankenstein’s own pants.|
|4||Boot, platform, black||These black, tall, chunky platform boots are to help you get Frankenstein’s size and mass proportions. He also wears boots that are similar.|
|5||Headpiece||This Frankenstein costume headpiece is green with black hair attached to it. It also has costume stitches, bolts, and medical staples added to it.|
|6||Makeup||To get the rest of your body and skin color more similar to Frankenstein’s, use this stage makeup palette to increase the quality and realness of your costume.|
