Coolest Homemade Heisman Trophy Costume

This Homemade Heisman Trophy Costume is my boyfriend Brian dressed up as the Heisman Trophy. We bought bronze spray paint and painted an old sweatshirt and sweatpants (the pants were originally dark blue; in retrospect, a lighter base color would have looked better), knee socks (from a sporting goods store), and old tennis shoes. I think we ended up using at least 3 cans of spray paint to achieve the desired color.

The helmet is a replica vintage leather football helmet that we bought on eBay. It was turned inside-out to hide the logo and also painted. I just used metallic acrylic craft paint for his hands and face, which probably wasn’t the safest option, but no permanent damage. It was a big hit and lots of people wanted pictures with him striking the pose!
