Frightful Edward Scissorhands Costume

edward scissorhands costume

If you want to build an Edward Scissorhands costume, the first step is raiding thrift stores and hardware shops to find tons of belts and buckles. Instructables user mattm5000 used 12 belts and several steel rings. Though the outfit is important, the scissorhands are the focus. Mattm5000 used 1/4 inch balsa wood to fashion them:

I started out by making a template on paper by hand, I made thumb pieces but did not end up using them. I then taped the template to 1/4″ balsa wood and cut it out with an X-acto knife. Next I painted the wood with a hammered silver spray paint. Its best to use one that has a primer and paint in one. No matter what it will take 3-4 coats to get a nice smooth finish. Some of the blades have scissor finger holes; these I wrapped in either black or red electrical tape to make them look more like scissors. Next I sewed them onto black leather or pleather gloves. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure that you put the longest blades on the middle fingers and then the next longest on the ring and index fingers and then the smallest blades on the pinky fingers.
