HULK COSPLAY FAIL! Fan Uses Submarine Paint To Become Hulk - Can't Remove It

Urgently need a costume? Sorted; rip your jeans at the knees and cover yourself in green paint - Wham! Instant She-Hulk/Hulk outfit, ready to party! Brazilian Paulo Henrique dos Santos had such an idea, only in the hurry to show off his biceps to the bypassing ladies, he didn't realise the paint he was buying was a special type of military paint, usually reserved for use on ballistic missiles and submarines. 

The key there is 'submarines'. If paint is designed to plough the ocean depths, you can bet it won't wash off easy. And you'd be right...

While we ponder how you get your hands on military paint, Paulo ticks the career objective box for all guys who've ever wanted to appear in the media, being scrubbed down with a toilet brush by their mother. Proving it truly isn't easy being green, media even first reported the woman in the photo as Paulo's girlfriend.

Eventually freed by a communal scrubbing from friends and neighbours that lasted over 24 hours, this wasn't Paulo's first time cosplaying as the Hulk. That makes me wonder if this brush with green has put the DJ off imitating the Jade Giant or if he's decided to stick with the ballistic theme and from now on appear as Nova, the Human Rocket.

More pics and details after the jump.

  1. One note to youngsters considering something along these lines: Your skin is actually one large organ with many pores and they need to breathe just as much as your lungs do. Cover most of them and you'll be fine as long as you're not allergic to the paint and you can drink water or have some other way to regulate your temperature. However, if you cover ALL your pores for an extended time then you're causing yourself unnecessary problems.

  2. Thanks for the comments guys!

    Yip he sure wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. You make a great point to PBL - always check the paint you're using is face or skin paint designed for such a purpose and always apply for the minimal time needed.

  5. Got a nice laugh out of the fact they thought the woman in the picture w/him was his girlfriend. LOL. At least there's something else to be embarrassed about besides the bad paint job:)

  8. Speaking as a mother, I probably would have taken the pictures and posted them myself, and then told them to fix it themselves. No way would I scrub that for them. That might sound cold, but seriously.
