This Homemade Comic Book Pop Art Costume was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein pop art. Every year my goal is to wear a costume that’s original. I hate spending too much money on costumes sold at the store for two reasons, (1) the material is cheap, (2) 87 other people will probably be wearing it as well. This year I decided to do be Comic Book Pop Art which involved paint, make up and markers. I used some clothes that I already had and painted my wig yellow at the ends. It took me about 2 hours to create this cartoonish look. The dot placement and black outlining were key to creating the pop art style seen in comic books. I outlined my eyebrows, eyes, lips, nose, collar bone, cleavage, chin, cheeks, ears, arms, elbows and even my feet and created a “POW” out of markers and poster board paper.
This costume is for sure one of the coolest costumes that I have created.

Wow that’s very cool! You totally look like pop art. Very creative!
This girl did an amazing job with costume and make-up! and adding the comic book “comment bubble” was creative!
how did you get that bubble look on your face and arms? Soooo Cool!
I just used a bunch of paint. the dots have to be lined up. I tried to line them up as much as I could. My arms were difficult to do.
