DescriptionThe main goal of the costume was to make the best Cross Punisher I could, and I came close to my original design. It is a hard-and-ply wood box (about 62" x 32" x 4") with steel studding used for the metal plates. The grip is a 6" PVC tube with a plywood grip, sandwiched in masonite. It took about 50 hours of work and weighs about 40 pounds. I had guidance and assistance from a friend who is a general contractor and had many more tools and more knowledge than I.
The rest of the costume is straightforward: a black suit, white shirt.
As of 2011 I had made sterling silver cross buttons on the suit. I also found more appropriate shoes.
As of 2012, I redesigned the wrap for the Punisher, making much more convincing "buckles" while also allowing all of the straps to come off more or less at the same time, quickly.
