Hades from Disney’s Hercules

Hades from Disney’s Hercules

Hades (voiced by James Woods) is the villain of Disney's classic take on Hercules. While he doesn't have that much in common with the actual Hades from mythology he is one of the most entertaining villains in Disney's gallery.

Hades' costume is pretty simple but does require some DIY. Most costume tunics don't come in black or dark grey so you'll have to dye a white one. The tunic linked above has a belt that you should remove before dying the tunic. Once it's done, however, you can use the belt to keep the garment snug under the sash you fashion out of a sheet large enough to wrap around your waist and then go up over your shoulder. Although it might seem silly to use a sheet, togas in Ancient Greece were largely made of fabric squares that were belted, pinned, and folded into various designs. In this case you can use safety pins in spots nobody will see and a skull-shaped pin at the shoulder, just like hades.

A little hair gel will spike up a blue wig to look like flames while a purple-grey body paint should give your skin the same pallor Hades' has. Finally, some sandals keep your feet safe while you put your plans in motion to rule the world!
