The Creature from Black Lagoon (Gill Man) Costume for Halloween 2019

Costumet Team

The creature from Black Lagoon is iconically known as the Gill Man. He doesn’t have much of a background story and is mostly known for killing people who encroach in his home. But back in the 1950s, he is one of the scariest creatures to ever grace the big screen and thus, he’s a Horror Hall of Famer.

Gill Man may not be as scary in today’s standards but he was definitely an inspiration for many of the monsters that came after him.

Gill Man walks on two feet and has arms like a human. But he looks very much like reptile with the scales all over his body. He has flippers on his hands and feet, and fins and gills on his head. Here’s everything you need to look like the Creature from Black Lagoon.
