I spent a whole month, and about $100, on this homemade rocketeer costume. The helmet is made of a honey comb box and paper mache top with gold spray paint. The jacket I found at Salvation Army that I stitched a front plate on to and then hot glued gold painted beer bottle tops for the buttons.
Pants came from some decade and found in my garage and boots and gloves were bought at Target. I felt like I could fly with my soda bottle rocket pack (duct tape and spray paint). So that’s my costume, the coolest homemade Rocketeer costume EVER!
