1. HULK OR SHE-HULK
Children dream of being a superhero or maybe a raging green monster once in their lives. The Hulk and she-hulk are probably one of the easiest homemade superhero costumes to do because all it requires is inexpensive green body paint. This is a very simple costume design but it will surely leave a smashing impression.
- Buy green body paint in any supplies or hardware stores. You can buy brown body paint as well. Mixing a dab of brown paint with the green will create a deeper shade.
- Spread the green paint all over your child’s face and body. Make sure the body paint you buy is hypoallergenic. If in doubt, try it on your skin first before putting on your child.
- Get a pair of your child’s old worn-out shorts and T-shirt. Cut the apparels about 4-5 inches shorter than the original length (depending on your child’s height and frame)
- Mess up their hair.
