If you have your heart set on dressing up as Piccolo this Halloween, simply continue reading to discover a step to step guide on creating a high quality DIY Piccolo costume.
How to make a homemade Piccolo costume:
Use long green gloves in order to give the illusion that you have green skin:
If you visit your local dollar store or costume store you shouldn’t have any trouble finding long green gloves, which you’ll be able to use to give the illusion that you have green hands and arms. This is a great idea if you are afraid of green paint rubbing off on your clothing or furniture or wearing off over time. If you have trouble finding green gloves, you can also purchase plain white gloves which you’ll be able to dye green in a bucket, using a bit of green food dye.
Create a Piccolo mask or paint your face green:
When it comes to creating Piccolo’s face, you have two viable options. Firstly, you can choose to paint your face green, in order to look like Piccolo or you can opt to make your own home made Piccolo mask.
If you’re keen to take on the challenge of creating a Piccolo mask you may want to print off an A4 picture of Piccolo’s face, which you’ll be able to glue onto a piece of cardboard. Such as the back of a used cereal box. Once you’ve cut out your cardboard mask, use a hole punch to punch two holes on the left side of Piccolo’s face and the right side of Piccolo’s face, so that you’ll be able to thread some elastic string through each hole in order to complete your DIY Piccolo mask.
Use a plain white sheet or a white towel to create Piccolo’s iconic cape:
One of the easiest parts of putting together a homemade Piccolo costume is creating Piccolo’s iconic white cape. As you’ll easily be able to use a white sheet or a white towel to create your cape. If you’d like your white cape to be shaped just like Piccolo’s cape, use an old wire coat hanger in order to fix your cape into place.
Sew a purple onesie or jumpsuit to wear:
The most important part of your Piccolo costume is Piccolo’s outfit. To recreate Piccolo’s outfit, simply sew a simple purple onesie or a purple jumpsuit. Remember to sew a blue sash or ribbon around the waist of your onesie to recreate Piccolo’s blue sash.
Find the right clothes to recreate Piccolo’s outfit:
Alternatively if you don’t have the skills or time in order to sew a whole outfit, simply pair a plain dark purple tank top with a pair of purple pants. As Piccolo’s pants fit loosely you can also get away with using dark purple pyjama pants in order to create Piccolo’s outfit.
Create Piccolo’s iconic hat:
Your last job will be to create Piccolo’s iconic hat. You may want to wrap a long white gauze bandage around your head before pinning a small circular piece of purple felt to the top of your makeshift hat. Or you may want to pin a piece of purple felt to the top of a white beanie. The choice is up to you.
So if you think that you can handle following all of the steps which are listed above, it’s well worth creating your very own home made Piccolo costume for Halloween!
