    A friend of mine is working on building a hulk costume, but we're having a hard time starting. Does anyone know of any previous builds/experiences...

    He's already a big guy, 6'5" 250ish so I'm thinking we just accentuate his size? Short stilts and bulk up his body?

    Check out this thread for some great muscle suit links.

    Be careful with stilts. It can look real fake real quick. Lift shoes or fake lift feet are a better option. Hulk is always barefoot anyway.

    Good luck, Hulk is a tough one to pull off.

    I don't know a lot about this sort of thing, but i'd be looking at a body suit with sculpted foam muscles attached to it.....

    Giant Muscle Suits

    IMO, that is by far the best website to use. His suits look amazing and I believe he can even paint them however you want. As far as looking realistic, this is as close as you'll get. Much better than a latex bodysuit. I know there was a guy on The League of Heroes making a Kilowog costume from Green Lantern with one not too long ago, might be worth checking out.

    Yeah, those look great, but I know there is no way he'll want to spend the movie for that kind of piece

    best way to start on a bigger guy is get fitted long sleeve shirt for him to wear and block out your muscle scuplts out of 5" to 6" foam it's expensive stuff to buy but if you hop on craigslist and look for curb alert couches. And go take the cushions they work awesome. Im building my hulk aswell im 6'4 but im only 200 lbs so im doing alot of bulking.
