Materials

-1 pair of black leggings
-1 black Long Sleeve shirt
-1 white long sleeve shirt
-1 pair of black socks
-1 pair of white socks
-1 piece of black electrical tape
-Scissors
-Marker

Step One: Making the Helmet

The first step to making your own hockey player costume is to create the helmet. You will need a black Baseball Cap and some silver duct tape. Begin by taping the bill of the cap with the silver duct tape. Then, continue wrapping the duct tape around the entire circumference of the cap. Make sure that the duct tape is wrapped snugly, but not too tightly, around the cap so that it will be comfortable to wear. Once you have wrapped the entire circumference of the helmet in silver duct tape, use a black Sharpie to draw on eyeholes. These will serve as your vision port while wearing the helmet. Finally, use more silver duct tape to create a chin strap for your hockey player helmet.

Step Two: Making the Pads

In order to make the pads, you will need four rectangles of black fabric. The size of the fabric will depend on the size of the person who will be wearing the costume. For an adult, the rectangles should be about 18 inches by 12 inches. For a child, they should be about 12 inches by 9 inches.

Cut two of the rectangles in half so that you have a total of six pieces of fabric. Sew three of the pieces together along the long sides to form a tube. Sew the remaining three pieces together along the short sides to form a second tube.

Position one of the tubes so that it is perpendicular to the other tube. Sew them together at the point where they intersect. This will form one of the pads for the costume. Repeat this process to make a second pad.

Step Three: Making the Skates

— Acquire a pair of long, black socks. If you do not have any, you may purchase some from a local drug store or department store.
— Take the socks and roll them into tight cylinders so that they resemble the skate blades
— Next, take some black electrical tape and wrap it around the bottom of the socks, securing them in place.
— Finally, use a knife or scissors to cut two small holes near the top of each sock. These will be used to tie the skates onto your feet later on.

Step Four: Making the Stick

After you have completed the skates, pads, and jersey, it is time to focus on the stick. You will need a wooden dowel that is about 40 inches long, a saw, hot glue, black electrical tape, and a tennis ball

First, use the saw to cut the dowel into two pieces that are each 20 inches long. These will be the shaft and blade of your hockey stick

Next, take the tennis ball and cut it in half with the saw. These will be the ends of your stick.

Now hot glue the tennis ball halves to the ends of your stick pieces. Allow them to dry completely.

Once they are dry, use the black electrical tape to create stripes down the shaft and blade of your hockey stick These stripes will give your costume a more realistic look.

Step Five: Putting It All Together

Now that you have all of your materials, it’s time to put your costume together! First, put on your black shirt and pants.Then, put on your white socks and your skates. Once you have your skates on, tie them tightly.

Next, put on your gloves. Make sure that the gloves are tight so that they don’t come off while you’re Playing

Now it’s time to put on your helmet. Make sure that the helmet is tight so that it doesn’t fall off while you’re playing.

The last step is to put on your Hockey Stick Now you’re ready to go out and show everyone how much you love hockey!
