How to Create a WWF Costume - Mankind


Mankind is a villainous wrestler who debuted on WWE Raw in April of 1996. He has since built up a very loyal and devout fan base. Dressing up as Mankind will scare almost anybody, with or without his sidekick, Socko. All you need to create this freakish character is a few simple items and a little imagination.

Things You'll Need

  • Amateur wrestling mask
  • Brown spray paint
  • Leather strap
  • Hot glue gun
  • Silver rivets
  • White dress shirt
  • Neckties
  • Sweatpants
  • Wigs
  • Spray Paints
  • Black lipstick
  • Backcomb your hair if it's already long and style it into the messy style of the character. Otherwise, do the same with a wig.

  • Attach a single leather strap from the top front of the amateur wrestling head gear to the back neck strap using glue. Make sure it allows your long, straggly hair to show.

  • Spray paint the wrestling head gear and strap brown.

  • Glue metal rivets along the strap and around the front of the head gear.

  • Pick out a white dress shirt with short sleeves. Don't tuck it in or iron it, and remember to unbutton the last couple of buttons.

  • Find an ugly brown or solid black necktie and hang it to just above belt level.

  • Wear black or blue sweatpants, but no jeans.

  • Slip on a pair of dirty white sneakers, which make for comfortable trick-or-treating.

  • Apply some black lipstick to your front teeth to make it look like they are missing.

  • Practice the Mankind head tilt and crazy look. Keep your mouth open and your tongue showing.

  • Create Mankind's sidekick, Socko the sock puppet. Take an old, dirty sock, draw on a pair of eyes and a mouth with a black marker, and place it on your right hand. You don't have to practice ventriloquism; just have Socko say "trick or treat." You might even get some extra candy.

Tips & Warnings

  • For some variation, pick out a necktie with a bunch of yellow smiley faces on it; Mankind has worn this on occasion.
