Syfy’s The Magicians features a number of cool costumes and character designs, but none may be as creative The Beast. The villain, once known as Martin Chatwin, can dissolve into flying insects in a second. Coslayer Angry Pixie constructed the costume by pairing a suit with the insect swarm. Her tutorial is useful for a spooky costume, even if you’re not into The Magicians specifically. It starts with chicken wire:
1. Turn sheet of chicken wire into a tube in the circumference of your head plus a few inches for comfort. Hot glue closed.
2. Close one end of tube to create a helmet. I used a zig-zag pattern.
3. Cut thousands of obnoxiously detailed items out of cardstock (85lb weight-ish) using a computerized machine. Or, if you are fond of a particular kind of lucid insanity, use scissors.
