The Red Skull costume is a dramatic ensemble taken from the movie Avengers: Infinity War. He was played by the actor Ross Marquand in the movie but has been around for decades in the comic books.

Red Skull was a Nazi agent who was close to Adolf Hitler during the Nazi regime. He is so nefarious that, at one point, he attempted to kill Hitler so he could take over as leader and orchestrate the Holocaust.

Given that Captain America is an all-American patriot, it makes sense that the Red Skull is one of the main villains in his comic books. Their ideals could not be more different, and they are both tough matches against one another.

  1. Black Long Coat
  2. Red Skull Latex Masks
  3. Red Body Paint
  4. Black Dress Shirt
  5. Hydra Symbol Belt Buckle
  6. Black Gloves
  7. Fake Gun
  8. Black Boots
  9. Hydra Sticker
  10. Black Leather Pants

DIY Red Skull Costume

The most important piece of the Red Skull costume will, of course, be what gives the supervillain his name—his red skull. You can buy a Red Skull costume mask to wear on your head to get his unique look, or try your hand with red face paint.

Red Skull wears a long black leather trench coat that you can purchase a replica of to really look the part. Wear a simple pair of black pants underneath it, in either fabric or leather.

Then, you can step into a pair of black leather combat boots to finish the main portion of the costume.

On your hands, you can wear a pair of black leather gloves for a seamless look. To accessorize the Red Skull costume, you can purchase a prop revolver pistol, so you will have the Red Skull’s weapon of choice on hand.
