Step 1: Clothes + Gloves
For the gloves, cut a rectangle piece of cardboard and cover it with your comic book cardboard or poster board and hot glue it to the glove. you can do this also to the boots.
Step 2: Knife and Gun
Check out the explanation to make a knife and sheath (link underneath) in the previous blog "How to make a snake eyes costume."
However, use the diagram in pic A and B to get the correct shape of the knife. The sheath for this knife is the same as the one located in the above link.
Spray your handguns silver or black and keep them tucked in the back of your waist. if you want to make gun holders instead, the link is also find in the "how to make a snake eyes costume" (above)
Step 3: Helmet: part 1
Once you have your cardboard crown, glue the hockey mask onto the front (pic C). From there, start with putting cardboard on the sides of the helmet. (pic D). If you can do this with one solid piece of cardboard per side, more power to you, if you use several pieces, that is fine too. Make sure you build past your ears, because you will need a reference point to finish the back of the helmet. At this point, you want to carefully cut the mask in half, just past your ear, which will give you a front and back (pic E). lastly, finish the back half with cardboard to cover up the back of your head (pic F). When you put it together, it should completely cover your head.
Step 4: Helmet: part 2
i put bondo on the entire thing. Remember to do this outside and wear a mask, as this stuff canít be good for your health.
Pop your lenses out of the sunglasses and paint black on them so only a silver triangle shows (pic H) Glue them from the inside of the mask. the gap between the lenses and the helmet will give you some breathing room too.

Lastly, after you paint the mask, drill small air holes within the black line. they arenít visible in pictures (pic I).
Step 6: Mask : optional
