Costume of Aquaman
If you’re thinking of your old aquaman costume that has green spandex leggings, a yellow/orange top, and black underwear bottoms think again! That’s the aquaman costume of yesteryear! The aquaman costume of today is up with the times and as cool as any new superhero costume. The reason? A new Aquaman movie is being released, and they’re revamping the costume so that it fits with the times!
We’ll get our first glimpse of the Aquaman costume in the new Batman vs. Superman movie, however in the meantime, a poster has been released showing Aquaman in all his glory….and boy does the costume look glorious!
You will possibly be the coolest superhero ever if you don this new costume this halloween! Here’s how you’ll need to put it together:
1. Hair. Aquaman’s hair is long and ragged, and a black/grey/white color. He has a matching wild bear to go with his unruly mane. The look you’re after is something similar to a Viking warlord.
2. Shirt/body armor. The new costume actually does not include a shirt! Although it almost appears that he is wearing one. The costume top actually consists of dark-colored tattoos meant to look as though they are shirt or piece of armor of some kind. He does actually have little pieces of armor supplementing the tattoos on one shoulder, with matching arm/wrist guards on each arm. The tattoos are designed in a way to blend effortlessly in with these metallic pieces. The overall look should be regal and powerful looking. To get the look at home, you can try body paint – you’ll want to stick with geometric designs, and try to get them to match whatever type of body armor you’re able to put together for your shoulders and arms.
3. A Trident. You don’t want a trident like the devil uses, rather stick with an all grey or black trident. It should be tall like a staff with points on the tips reminiscent of a spear!
4. Belt / pants. A rough looking with an “A” as the buckle should hold up dark greenish-grey pants (check out the movie poster for a better idea of the style).
That’s all there is to it! Be creative in your version, and look to the movie poster for inspiration. Your aquaman poster is sure to be a big hit at any costume party or halloween event!
