Hellboy creator Mike Mignola says anyone can be the red-faced, devil-like creature just by using two Dixie cups, a piece of string and some red face paint.
Mignola says hes seen many homemade versions of the costume at various comic book conventions but the Dixie cup and string invention takes the cake.
Hes hoping the costume will take off with his biggest demographic 5 year-old boys and their mothers.
Says Mignola: Ever since the movie came out Ive had so many parents come up to me and tell me how much their 5 year-old loves Hellboy.
Plus, he figures the Hellboy-oween costume is good promotion for his latest project, an animated series called Hellboy: Sword of Storms that debuts Saturday (Oct. 28) on the Cartoon Network.
