  1. 1

    Paint the ballet shoes and surfboard silver.

  2. 2

    Put on the muscle shirt. The Silver Surfer is traditionally very strongly muscled and few people have the definition to truly look like a superhero in spandex.

  3. 3

    Put on the spandex suit.

  4. 4

    Put on the bald wig. Unless you have a shaved head, the liquid latex used in later steps will stick to your hair.

  5. 5

    Apply liquid latex to your head, face and hands.

  6. 6

    Allow the latex to dry.

  7. 7

    Put on your silver shoes. You should be covered from head to toe in silver and have a silver surfboard.
