Spiderman Costume Part 2: How to Make a Spiderman Costume Mask

How to Make a Spiderman Costume Part 2Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can…at least when he has his mask on. So here is how to make a Spiderman costume part 2, the all-important, identity-hiding mask.

I don’t have a template for the main part of the mask, since it’s super easy to just freehand. However, you’ll want to make sure that it’s long enough to cover your neck. Also if you have long hair like me, you’ll have to add an extra couple inches to account for it (I didn’t, so my mask ended up a little short in the back). The white chiffon for the eyeholes can be found cheaply at JoAnn fabrics.

Like the first part of the Spiderman costume, I chose to go over the drawn-on lines with some black puffy paint just to give it a bit more texture, but that step is optional. Be sure your red material is super stretchy so the neck hole will fit over your head (I used an old red knit shirt for it). You can just hot glue the seams together if you’re not comfortable sewing, but I think a stitch holds it a little more securely.
