Homemade Deep Sea Diver Costume

Homemade Deep Sea Diver Costume

This Homemade Deep Sea Diver Costume came up from exploring the depths of the ocean to show everyone how useful and exciting recycled materials can be. We had a blast creating this costume. It is unisex, versatile and durable.

The diver's helmet is made from recycled cereal boxes, hot glue, paper mache, recycled plastic bottles and Shellac to weather seal it and give it that copper effect. The valves are removable to prevent murky vision, which, any experienced diver will tell you, can be debilitating and prevent you from finding the coolest of treasures. There are four ports for high visibility - on the right, left, front and top of the helmet.

The only thing that was purchased was the jumpsuit at a surplus store; it was bought new and white for $5. However, I soon had fun dragging it through the mud to give the impression that it had seen many deep sea adventures. We used an old belt with suspenders attached. We added chopped-off sock tops to extend the gloves.

This Homemade Deep Sea Diver Costume took approximately twelve hours total.

This is the best example of human ingenuity I've seen in a while. I really love the authenticity of the helmet. The creative juices were flowing fast when this eco-groovy costume was conceived. I'd love to see more from this designer!

Coolest Homemade Deep Sea Clam Diver Costume 2

Homemade Deep Sea Clam Diver Costume

I am 5'4" tall and I used a size 58 coverall (so I am the legs of the diver) with a backpack to support the upper torso, drain pipe for arms, flower pots, PVC, coffee can lids and an old "fortune teller ball" for the Helmet of this Homemade Deep Sea Clam Diver Costume.

I made the sea creatures out of painted foam rubber and used fish net to cover the rest of me.
My view is un-obstructed, my arms are free and the whole thing stands about 6'6", so walking indoors is not an issue and I can still "heed nature's call" if need be.

This Homemade Deep Sea Diver Costume was done with the famous "Art Attack Mix" half white glue and half water. It took me three days of work but the result was worth it.

What do you think about? It was the best of all the party.

yay!
by: gambitgirlie

This looks great and is a really original costume idea. You could also jazz it up even more with fake seaweed dangling off the helmet or dragging behind you. Great job!
