How to Make Your Own Gorilla Costume
If you are a Halloween amateur and you have not found the right costume to wear at the long-awaited Halloween party, the perfect solution is to dress up as a gorilla and you won't regret your choice not even for a single moment. And since the most trustful costume are those made at home because they are personalized and very adjustable, here are the tips for some very useful crafts.
In order to create such a character, no matter if it's for adults or if it's a kids gorilla costume you are looking for, you will need the following things:
- 1 sewing machine
- 1 pair of scissors
- about 7 m of black fur fabric or dark brown one
- 1-2 m of gray or pinkish rubber fabric
- strong black thread
- a gorilla mask
What to do and how to do it:
First, you have to start with the pants. You just mark the back of the black fur fabric, after measuring the person who will wear the costume in the end and you cut the fabric afterwards, but you have to make sure the margins are bigger, for the costume to be comfortable and not too tight in the end. Also, make sure you have some elastic prepared in order to hold the pants.
The second step is to make the upper part of the gorilla costume. Make sure it goes till the subject's hips, so that the final gorilla does not look as if it had been cut in half and then resewed. The way to obtain the shape and everything may be somehow as in the case of the first step or you just make the subject lay down on the fabric.
Now, it's time for our gorilla to have some muscles. After all, it's the king of the jungle, not just any monkey. So, take the rubber fabric and cut a shape which is round at the bottom, for the stomach and square in the upper part, for the impressive chest. After you cut it, you have to sew it on the upper part of the gorilla costume, described in step two.
Now, you are almost there. You just have to sew the upper part on the sides, for it to be all around, not separate and comb the fur in the extremities a little bit. There you are. From now on it is all about the accessories.
You should wear black gloves, black shoes and the gorilla mask, which you can adjust according to your tastes. Also, you can bring along your banana. If you are an adult, you can dress you kid in a banana for Halloween and, just as well, if it's a kids gorilla costume you have just made, you could dress your mom and dad as a Halloween banana. You should really check the gorilla costume out for such an occasion.
