Best Colossus Costume Guide

Colossus is a fictional character who appears in the massively successful Deadpool and Deadpool 2 films. Stefan Kapicic portrays him, and he originally appears in several of the X-Men films. In Deadpool though, we first meet him when he comes to Deadpool’s aid in the opening fight scene. It is suggested that he is one of the few remaining X-Men, and he wants Deadpool to join him and start using his powers for good rather than being a mercenary.

An enormous metallic guy with a big heart, Colossus wants nothing more than to do good in the world and puts up with merciless taunting from Deadpool but still keeps coming back to help him no matter how often he is told to go away.  If you’d love to become Deadpool’s persistent sidekick, you’ll need a Colossus Mask, Silver Bodysuit, Leather Vest, X-Men Belt Buckle, and Combat Boots.

Colossus Costume Tips & FAQs

Step into the formidable shoes of Colossus, the iconic metal-skinned mutant from “Deadpool” and “Deadpool 2”. Our specialized costume guide FAQ is designed to help you recreate the impressive and heroic look of this beloved X-Men character. Learn the essentials of crafting a Colossus costume that captures his strength and stoic demeanor.

Colossus' costume in the Deadpool films is characterized by his metallic, silver skin and his towering, muscular physique. Key features include a red and yellow X-Men uniform with a utility belt. The outfit is simplistic yet iconic, focusing on his metallic skin and muscular build.

To mimic Colossus' metallic skin, you can use silver body paint or full-body metallic silver suits. Pay special attention to achieving a shiny, reflective finish to replicate the look of metal. For added realism, contouring with darker shades can help give the appearance of his defined muscles.

Wear a form-fitting red and yellow bodysuit that represents the X-Men uniform. If you're skilled in costume-making, you can add armor-like padding to mimic his muscular build. A utility belt with X-Men insignia completes the ensemble.

While Colossus doesn't typically carry specific weapons, having X-Men related props like an X-Men badge or simulated mutant power effects can enhance the authenticity of the costume. Remember, Colossus is known for his physical prowess, so props should complement, not overshadow, his physical presence.

Colossus is known for his moral compass and gentle giant persona. Including lines like, "We can do this the easy way, or the hard way" or "Deadpool, please. You are better than this," helps embody his character. Additionally, practicing a strong, upright posture and a gentle, yet firm, speaking style will bring your Colossus cosplay to life.

About Colossus

Colossus is a fictional character whose real name is Peter Rasputin, a mutant who was born in Chernobyl and therefore manifested his abilities at an early age. Colossus first appeared in the original X-Men film, only in a very brief role before appearing more in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. As he was only a supporting character in a huge range of massive stars, he is perhaps more widely known for his appearances in Deadpool and Deadpool 2.

As a member of the X-Men, Colossus attempts to recruit Deadpool to use his powers for good. However, he is unsuccessful and bears the brunt of Deadpool’s razor tongue throughout the film. Despite this, the huge metal man with superhuman strength shows a gentler side, continually coming back to help Deadpool even if he doesn’t deserve it.
