without comments

Gorilla suit costumes are a classic, and it doesn’t matter what you’re dressing up for. A gorilla suit costume is just as appropriate at a science fiction convention as it is at a Halloween party. And new versions of the classic gorilla costume look more realistic than ever.

Making your own gorilla suit costume can be a challenge, but it can be a fun way to spend some time with one of your kids, and it can save you a little bit of money. If you’re handy and like doing craft type stuff, give making your own gorilla suit for Halloween a try.

Your gorilla suit will need arms and a torso, as well as pants. I recommend sweatshirts and sweatpants, in black or gray. You can then attach the fur to the appropriate places on the costume. Get yourself a cool gorilla mask to top it off with, and you’ve got a homemade gorilla costume that can’t be beat.

If you really want to have some fun with a gorilla suit, try emulating some of the early Planet of the Apes movies to see if anyone is nostalgic enough to remember the films and make the connection. If you’ve got some buddies who are also science fiction geeks, you could even have someone dress as Charlton Heston from the movie. If someone is creative and artistic, you could set up your own Statue of Liberty prop so that you can re-enact the end of the original movie. That will really drive the crowd wild.
