Another gift from Marvel Comics comes in the form of Frank Castle, aka The Punisher. By following this guide, we’ll have you looking ready for revenge with just 7 items. Start with the small stuff by arming yourself with two weapons make a convincing cosplay—a Crosman Airsoft Pistol and a M4A1 Carbine with Grenade Launcher.
For Frank Castle’s outfit, we recommended an authentic Punisher Skull T-Shirt underneath a Black Leather Trench Coat. We also chose a pair of Black Tactical Pants cinched with a Multifunction Tactical Belt. We capped off the look with a sturdy pair of Black Jungle Boots.
A wildly popular character among the Marvel comics greats, Frank Castle is more attitude than a costume. You’re on your own for that part. As far as his outfit, we’ve got you covered. Think black—black sleeveless t-shirt and black pants. You can easily purchase a Punisher branded t-shirt online or make your own with white fabric paint from any craft store. Add a pair of black tactical gloves to really sell the look.
Arm yourself with faux guns in a holster. A costume shop should be able to suit your needs. For group cosplay, we suggest adding Marvel allies Spider-Man or Daredevil. You can also go in a completely different direction by joining up with his enemies like Dr. Doom or King Pin. Be sure to check out the featured cosplay pics for more costume ideas. Show us your best Punisher look too!
Frank Castle wasn’t always The Punisher. Once upon a time, Frank Castle was a decorated U.S. Marine veteran. He was a husband and father. One day, that all changed, and Frank Castle went from proud soldier and family man to a vengeful, tortured soul. A soldier and survivor of the Vietnam War, he is a fierce tactician. He left it all behind to settle down and raise children.
Years later, he would watch his wife and two children be shot and killed. Justice failed Frank when the perpetrators of the murders went unpunished due to corruption. That’s when he became The Punisher. Vowing to take down the crime system that failed him and his family, he uses his finely honed military skills to punish all involved. When he’s not chasing down the mafia, he’s defending and revenging those who can’t find justice by any other means.
