How to make a Punisher costume

Updated July 19, 2017

The Punisher is a vigilante hero in the movie and comic book of the same name. His real name is Frank Castle, and he swore to take vengeance against all criminals after mobsters killed his wife and children and left him for dead. As The Punisher, black-haired, blue-eyed Castle wears a black outfit with a large white skull emblazoned on the front of his T-shirt. This is a simple costume to make.

Draw a large skull on the white felt. Make it big enough to cover two-thirds of the front of your black T-shirt.

Cut the skull out, and glue it to the front of your T-shirt.

Colour your hair black with the hairspray.

Wear your black T-shirt, trousers and military boots. Put your leather jacket on over the top. Hold the two toy guns.


Look at pictures of The Punisher on the Internet for a clear idea of what the skull should look like. Wear a short leather jacket if you can't find a long one. Swap the black hairspray for a black wig if you wish.
