Poor Man’s X-Men

Want to be a superhero, but were born without a genetic mutation or billions of dollars to spend on gadgets? Never fear! Vo Maria is here with an answer, homemade X-Men costumes!

She’s put together a handy four part craft set that allows you to become Gambit, Cyclops, Magneto or Wolverine, on a budget! Sure, you will probably injure yourself, or at the very least get your ass kicked, but it’s worth a shot, right?

Not pictured, dipping yourself in molten metal to try and become Colossus, or taping a microphone to your throat in an effort to scream like Banshee. Check out the rest of the attempts below:

  1. I was originally gonna note that for Gambit’s gloves, you should only cut off the index finger and pinky. Then I saw the rest of the costumes…

  2. Funnily enough I used to like gambit so much I learned how to throw cards really far. I would kind of bend them a little holding the edges of the long side and let through go with a flick of the wrist. It kind of snaps away spinning but ya never know exactly where its gonna go lol.

  3. Hahaha! Man, this is awesome, made me gigglesnort like mad! Cyclops is definitely funny, but Wolverine is absolutely hilarious! Kudos to the person who came up with this and to you for featuring it!
