My buddy and I went as separate luchadors last year, so we wanted to team up to make the best Legion of Doom wrestling partners costume. We got used football pads from a sporting store, spray painted them red. Bought the leggings, and “spikes” from Michaels, spray painted those sterling silver for the metallic look. Bought dark color iron on paper and designed custom leg art work for based on pictures online of Hawk and Animal. completed it with knee pads, and boot covers.
We did custom face paint also based on a variety of pictures on the internet. We went out on Friday and were complimented and got our pictures taken with random people. We were definitely the most original costume of the night at the bars we went to. The hardest part was definitely the leggings, trying to get the iron-ons to match up and be even on both legs was a lot harder than we expected.
