One Man Wayne’s World Cosplay

waynes-world-cosplay-1

Don’t have a Wayne to cosplay alongside your Garth? Then just be both characters. Redditor johnny5k came up with a creative way to do a one-man cosplay featuring two characters. If you’re not into Wayne’s World, you could apply his technique to any duo. johnny5k explained how he inhabited two bodies at once:

Wayne’s (fake head/torso) shirt is cut across the front, so I slipped my body through the cut and put the bottom of his shirt over my (real) waist/legs so my legs look like they’re his. Garth’s (my) shirt is cut in the back, so I can put the bottom “tube” part of the shirt in front of me and around the fake legs, so it looks like the legs in the front are connected to my (real) torso.

Garth’s legs & Wayne’s torso are build out of foam insulation (the rigid pink/purple stuff that comes in big sheets). I glued a few layers together and carved it to loosely match my size. Then I attached the mannequin head & arms and shoes to that. (fun fact: both hands are right hands – one of them is turned backwards. Apparently nobody sells left-handed severed halloween arms). The head is a “cosmetology human hair” head, for practicing cutting hair I guess.

I used 2 belts – one around the back of my waist to hold the legs on, and another around the front of my waste to hold the torso on; with some soft foam in between so I didn’t get too bruised.

You can see a couple of in progress pictures below, and then visit Imgur to see more.
