Innovation in Uberaba Posted by on Dec 15, 2009 in Brazilian News, Culture

An interior designer in Uberaba, Minas Gerais decided to start his own personal project one day when he needed a costume for a costume party. He gathered together recycled materials and created a character from the Fantastic Four. Since it was such a success, he started making even more costumes. He uses all sorts of materials, like discarded eletronic parts and chair legs, and the result are incredibly detailed, unbelievable costumes.

His most expensive costume cost R$1000 ($500) and took seven months to make, but the outcome is one of his most spectacular pieces: a full body alien costume. He has also created monster, soldiers, and ninjas. Now the designer is often hired to create costumes for mascots.

Check out this video from Via Brasil to see the amazing costumes and hear more about the designer!
