Avengers: Infinity War came out on Friday and ruled the box office. You won’t find any spoilers here, just an appreciation of Jerry Almond’s excellent and intimidating Thanos costume. He wears a muscle suit underneath the clothes (photo below) to bring the Mad Titan’s massive form to life, and he has a mask and Infinity Gauntlet to go with it. The detailed Thanos mask is silicone and from Evolution Masks; Almond added some violet paint to the mask so it would better match the skin tone of his costume. You can see how flexible it is in this Instagram video.
