Ice Man Costume

So - if you are like me, your kid decides to pick the one character in the world that doesn’t have a pre-made, store-bought costume option.  CheezWaster decided he wanted to be Ice Man from the X-Men this year.

Iceman from the X-Men

This costume is relatively simple to make.  We purchased a boy’s light blue mock turtleneck unitard from an online dancewear company.  I was a bit upset that this wasn’t shiny spandex material when it arrived,  but the website didn’t really have pictures of the unitard colors either.  I think the shiny spandex would have made the costume a bit more true to the character.  We then purchased 2 types of wide ribbon - 1 piece of light blue and one piece of clear/white with silver sparkles.  We overlayed the ribbons and sewed them on to the costume - attaching them to the side and back seams of the unitard.  We then used silver trim to make the X in the middle of the belt.

We used a make-up set from Ice FX.  I found mine at Walgreens but also saw them at Party City and several other costume shops.  These sets come with everything you need to do the light blue makeup and ice crystals.  We added the ice crystals to CheezWaster’s eyebrows, cheeks and hands.  We also used a blue gel hair dye on his hair. And WHA-LA - there you have an Ice Man from X-men costume.

    Good luck, Sam. My boys’ unitard took a few weeks to come in from the dancer’s catalog, so I hope you get one in time for Halloween!

    One of my sons top 3 picks is iceman. They watch spiderman and his amazing friends….his other top 2 picks are cylops (orignal xmen) and the new spiderman 2099 (that can’t be found yet). I might try this iceman…it seems not too hard!!

    Good luck, Kellie. I’d love to see yours if you wind up making it. This was super easy, though I will say that the unitard took a long time to come, so if you are really interested in this, you might want to order one now.

    Thanks so much! This is what my boy picked and i was like “what the heck!?” But being one who loves doing the unusual was a little glad he didnt pick something popular. SO I bought the royal blue face paint and was thinking “dang. This is gonna make him look like he belongs in the BLUE MAN group…” so I am going to return it and buy the face stuff you recommended! Thanks!
