If you are a fan of comic books, specifically Into the Spider-Verse, a great idea is to make your own Kingpin costume. This is a relatively easy fancy dress to make yet it is somewhat unique. It will certainly stand out on halloween or at a fancy dress party.
Kingpin Costume – Into the Spider-Verse
A Kingpin costume is actually a relatively easy costume to make therefore it is a great last minute costume idea. The most difficult part of making a Kingpin costume is is replicating the bulky, fat appearance that the character has. Here is a complete list of what you will need to make your own homemade Kingpin costume from Into the Spider-Verse.
Kingpin Fat Body Suit
|As we have already said the most difficult part of making your own Kingpin costume is the bulky appearance of the character.
This is actually a lot easier than you may think. To recreate the body shape of this character the costume should start with you wearing an inflatable fat body suit.
Kingpin Black Suit
|Next you will need to choose a suit to wear.
This suit should be simple and should be black in color.
When choosing a black suit you will need to take into consideration that it will need to be excessively large as it will be worn over the top of the inflatable fat body suit.
|A simply button down shirt will be needed to create your own Kingpin costume.
This shirt should be a simple formal style shirt and should be plain white.
|You will need a necktie when putting together your Kingpin costume.
This should be a simple black necktie. You will notice that the necktie worn by the character appears to be quite thin. You can recreate the thin appearance of the necktie by wearing it with the thinnest part at the front. The thick part can then be hidden inside the white shirt you will be wearing.
|A pair of shoes will also be need as the final clothing item of your Kingpin costume.
These shoes should be a formal style to match the rest of the characters outfit. They should also be black in color and be lace-up shoes.
Kingpin Walking Cane
|The very final item you will need to complete your Kingpin costume is a walking cane.
This should be a black walking cane preferably with a silver ball shaped handle on the top. You should be looking for a walking you would expect a gentleman in a suit to use in the early 1900’s.
