Updated July 20, 2017

Once industrialist Norman Osborn, he was transformed into a bomb throwing maniac by a strength-enhancing experiment gone wrong. He continues to wreak havoc on the innocent and cause Spiderman all manner of problems.

Dye the white shirt, swimming costume, cloth and gloves purple according to the direction on the dye.

Spray paint ears green and boots purple.

Measure around your head. Cut two triangles from the cloth. The base should be half the diameter of your head plus about 2 1/2 inches. The other two sides should each be about 24 inches long.

Lay one triangle on top of the other and pin together. Sew along the two long sides up to about 2 inches from the base. Cut the base of one triangle into a point. Turn inside out.

Put on bald cap making sure all hair is hidden.

Apply green make up to face neck and just beyond the hair line of cap.
