Pyro is part of a team of nasty characters from the video game Team Fortress 2. Pyro is decked out in fire-retardant gear, including suit, boots, gloves and gas mask. Pyro is one of the deadliest characters in the game, wielding a flame thrower as well as a fire axe. Pyro makes a great subject for a Halloween costume. With her grisly reputation and cold and emotionless mask, she is sure to make an impression.

  1. 1

    Cut out an axe blade shape from a piece of cardboard using a pair of scissors. Tape the blade onto a wooden stick using duct tape. Spray paint the axe using silver spray paint. Let the paint dry. Spray on one more coat of paint. Let it dry. This will be your fire axe.

  2. 2

    Cover the goggles of the army gas mask with masking tape. Spray the mask with black spray paint using an even back and forth motion. Let the paint dry. Apply one more coat of spray paint and let the mask sit over night. Ignore this step if you have a black gas mask.

  3. 3

    Put on your orange or red jumpsuit and zip it up. Attach one black canvas belt around your waist and another canvas belt over your left shoulder and under your right arm.

  4. 4

    Put on your black rubber, winter or combat boots. Tuck the pant legs of your jumpsuit into your boots. Put on your gas mask. Put on your black leather gloves. Pick up your fire axe.
