Homemade Ultimate Warrior WWF Costume

Growing Up in the 80's I watched WWF, as many people did, and my ICON was the one and only Ultimate Warrior! I took one look at him and thought to myself, I could make a mirror image of him for Halloween...and then it began!

At the fabric store I bought out all their rainbow fluorescent color fabrics, to match the Warrior. I cut the arm and leg bands into thin strips. I found a mullet wig at the store which was a perfect match to his real hair. Face paint from the usual Halloween store. Nothing like some green Speedo's from Ross, and some white Volleyball knee pads that I covered in fabric and painted his logo on them.

For the face, I spent 45 minutes in the mirror with Q-tips applying the paint, simply by looking at a picture of the real Ultimate Warrior! Turned out Amazing! The best ad-lib part was the boots. I couldn't find white boots for the life of me that matched the wrestler, so instead, I found some cheap white tennis shoes, and white tube socks. Then I cut up a white T-Shirt into strips, and sewed them on the tube socks to give the impression of frilly boots! Perfecto!! Oh and cannot forget the all body spray on tan I bought, so I actually looked super dark like he did...well I tried!!

To top it off I bought a kids WWF Belt, and painted it yellow to match, then I was set, walking around the streets and parties yelling and being crazy like the Warrior was! I got a lot of shout-outs for sure, people loved it! I was the hit of the party for sure!

No one can top the Ultimate Warrior, one of the 1980's greatest superhero's in the Wrestling Ring, next to Hulk Hogan!

I too am going to be the Ultimate Warrior (albeit a girl version - the ultimate warrioress??).

What kind of paint is best to use?? I bought some from a Halloween store but it's really not the best quality.
