Len here! As the self-proclaimed fan of the show, I don’t get to play around in makeup, costuming and SFX as much as Frank does. So Halloween is the time of year that I get to stretch my creative muscles. In the past, I have tried building my own StarLord mask or cosplay as Short Round, all the varying results. This year, I decided to buy a costume off the rack and modify it slightly. And the costume I chose was DeadPool!
Check out the picture above to see what my costume looks like. I may try modifying it a little more and if I do, I will post some pics. In the meantime, feel free to post your own pics to show off your work.
Happy Early Halloween!
