SPIDERMAN UNDERWEAR COSTUME TUTORIAL

FEATURE VIDEO



The Amazing Spiderman reboot has kicked off a new series of movies for the big screen and it seems that Spiderman will continue to be a popular pop culture character for decades to come. The latest movie series has brought many affordable officially licensed products to the market via the Disguise costume company so assembling this outfit is relatively easy. I had fun with reinterpreting the most minimal version of Spidey's outfit and I went for the edge using the Gregg Homme Boy Toy thong.

This was a surprisingly effective outfit to be able to pull together without spending a lot on the individual items. I think what really takes things to the next level are the quality of the mask and gloves which are really standouts at the low price points.

Here is a detailed breakdown of the various items used in this outfit. I've included all the original items as well as several alternates whenever possible.

Spiderman Mask

Amazing Spiderman Deluxe Mask by Disguise


Price: $25
Amazon.com Product Page

There are three major options for the Spiderman Mask tow of which are based on the latest movie reboot design. Given the inexpensive nature of the items I'd strongly advocate going for the deluxe edition as it seems to be a significant step up from the cheaper regular version.

For those of you who are a fan of the classic Spiderman from the comic books I've included the alternate version of the mask also by Disguise. Whenever purchasing costume items make sure you are buying the adult sized versions and not accidentally the children's versions which is easy to miss since they look identical.

I've included a rather random pair of Spiderman eye-wear which could be an easier-to-wear option if you don't feel like you want to go with a full head mask.

UnderArmour Compression Sleeveless Shirt

Under Armour Sonic Compression Sleeveless Shirt


Purchase this shirt at:
UnderArmour.com
for $25
Amazon.com for $25
DicksSportingGoods.com for $25

The top is an easy purchase given the range of Under Armour and Nike compression shirts available on the market. For a brighter red the Under Armour version works well and if you like a darker, less saturated red the Nike version works well.

I've included the long-sleeve version of the top in case you're interested in something that covers up more.

When assembling a costume outfit I like the underwear to be low-profile with minimal or no branding since that interferes less with the look. Gregg Homme currently offers a great range of cuts in the Boy Toy line with a Royal Blue color option that matches up extremely well for a Spiderman costume. I've also included suitable options from Joe Snyder, Cover Male and BodyAware in case you're looking for something flashier, a different cut or a little more affordable than the Gregg Homme lines.

Spiderman Deluxe Gloves
Zoom Icon

Amazing Spiderman Deluxe Adult Gloves by Disguise


Price: $8
Amazon.com Product Page


The gloves are an important addition to complete the overall Spiderman look and luckily Disguise offers a nicely printed set for a bargain price. The manufacturing quality isn't super durable and the size is going to be a little small for guys with bigger hands (even for the adult version of the gloves) so be careful you aren't too rough with these gloves when you wear them for your costume.

I've included an alternate set of gloves that don't go past the hands as well as a set following the classic red Spiderman look from the earlier comic books.

Nike Pro Combat Core Compression Short
Zoom Icon

Nike Pro Combat Core 2.0 Compression 6" Short


Purchase this short at:
Nike.com
for $28
Amazon.com for $32
DicksSportingGoods.com for $28

I realize it might feel a bit throwaway to buy a set of compression shorts simply to use the lower leg portions as leg straps but I feel they help make the outfit feel more "head-to-toe". Nike's blue shorts have contrast stitching which might interfere a bit with the look although the blue is a nice darker tone. Under Armour's version has longer legs which gives you more material to work with.
