Homemade Big Ern McCracken from Kingpin

A couple years ago, I decided to be one of my heroes in all of cinema; Big Ern McCracken from the movie Kingpin.

The costume was fairly easy to recreate. I purchased a comb over wig, and painted the hair brown because it was gray. I went to Wal-Mart and bought a pair of cheap gray slacks, and a cheap button down black shirt (each under $10). Found a good picture from Big Ern's final scene of the movie, and got a white paint marker and drew the designs like he had on the shirt. I also bought some silver material to make my scarf thing, as well as a cheap glove and cut some of the fingers off of that.

Last thing was the back harness that I found around the place that I worked at; painted some white lines on that too. I also put some stuffing for my stomach, because he's got a gut in the movie.

I really think it came out looking pretty good and was fairly cheap. Probably spent around $40 for everything.

My costume is Roy Munson from Kingpin. I basically took a few button-up dress shirts (red, blue, white) and used scissors and spray adhesive glue. I had some parts sewn but found the glue quicker and easier. The pants and stars are made out of fabric that I found at the store and again were just made with scissors and glue. It's pretty easy to make and I struck gold when I found the fabric at the store. It is as close as to the original as you could ever get.

So being a Huge KingPin Fan I really wanted an Ernie McCracken from Kingpin Costume. I bought a black shirt and painted the flames with silver fabric paint. I found some gray pants and bought and painted a wrist guard. The wig I tore apart to make the come over. But the best piece was the bowling ball with the rose. I ordered online a plastic light fixture cover that I then stained using colored plastic paint and mounted a fake rose inside.
