I had a request for a DIY Spiderman costume so here’s the first part of the tutorial showing how to make the top half of the costume. This will be followed next week by the mask, and the remainder of the costume the week after. This is sort of a cross between the Spider-Man Homecoming suit and the Tobey Maguire version of the costume. It’s mostly the Tom Holland design, but I added the Tobey Maguire-era puffy paint, because I like the added texture.
This is a bit of a time-consuming DIY Spiderman costume (particularly if you choose to do the puffy paint), but it’s very cheap to make. (The 2 shirts I used for this I picked up for about $3 each at my local Salvation Army, so check your 2nd hand shops). There’s also no sewing on this part of the costume, just glue, which makes it pretty easy to assemble. The spiders are fairly easy to draw freehand, but if you want a guide, I do have a free template here.
1 Red turtleneck
1 long-sleeved blue shirt
6 inches of fake black leather (stretchable if you can find it)
Fabric glue (here’s the Amazon link to the stuff I used)
Blue fabric marker
2 drinking straws
Metallic silver paint
Scrap pieces of 3mm craft foam
Hot glue gun
Black puffy paint (optional)
