Coolest Homemade Killer Fish Halloween Costume Idea

The Homemade Killer Fish Halloween Costume Idea took me about two and a half days to complete. I constructed it entirely out of cardboard, masking tape, thin wooden dowels, and posterboard for the scales. It took a lot of putting it on and off in the beginning just to make sure that it would fit properly and not be too uncomfortable, but after I got the basic frame all constructed, the scales took me a really long time.

After I finally got all the scales on there, I took it down to the basement for paint. For the finishing touches I added the spherical Styrofoam eyeballs which I painted. It was quite easy to wear all night and dance in, and I had no problem getting a bottle of beer in through the mouth hole. I could barely fit it in my car though!! I actually had to drive to the costume contest with the tail sticking out the side window.

Nonetheless I was the star of the party and everybody wanted to have their picture taken with THE FISH!!

  1. Love the foot sticking out…and the eyeballs…all around the coolest thing EVER!! I wish I could have seen it in person.

  2. With all the costume contests I have gone to in my life I have never had the pleasure of meeting a fish. How creative!

  3. This costume looks really cool, it has an original style, almost from another time period. Love the colors too! and I can’t believe it’s made of just cardboard. Well done.

  4. I found this website while looking for fish costumes. Your video inspired me to create a costume instead.

  5. I love this! THANK YOU for the videos showing us how you did it. My nephew wants to be a killer fish this year and I don’t have a clue on how to do it. Now, thanks to you and your videos, we’ll be quite busy for the next few days! I’ll post it to show the final product. :)
    Well done!
