You’ve never seen a Halloween costume like this! PrankvsPrank YouTube star Jesse Wellens dressed as Silver Surfer from the Marvel Comics ahead of Oct. 31 — and he took New York City by storm in his getup. Watch here!
Leave it to Jesse Wellens, 34, to pull out a totally epic costume for Halloween! The YouTube sensation decked himself out in silver paint and hair to take on Marvel Comics’ Silver Surfer character…and the results were totally epic. Jesse added a silver surfboard atop wheels to the look and skated around the Big Apple in character, swerving through busy traffic and leaving pedestrians in awe.
Dozens of people stopped in their tracks as Jesse whizzed by, with many quickly grabbing their phones to take pictures and videos of the iconic moment. Cars even slowed down to get a better look, including a New York Police Department van, with the driver capturing it all on video. SO GOOD!
Jesse’s look was completed by help from makeup artist Alexys Fleming, and we have to say, she totally nailed it. But it’s one thing to just put on the costume, and it’s another to actually embody that character, so we have to give Jesse some major props.
The 34-year-old gained notoriety thanks to his PrankvsPrank YouTube channel, which he created in 2009 with Jeana Smith. The two actually dated for more than ten years, but devastated fans by announcing their split in May 2016, which is when Jesse moved to New York City to take the next step in his career.
Interestingly, the former couple uploaded a YouTube video of them together, riding around Philly, in August, but quickly shot down rumors they were back together. “We’re friends, we like to hang out,” Jesse explained. Aw man! Well, at least this costume proves he hasn’t lost his creativity since the split!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Jesse’s Silver Surfer costume? Is it an amazing costume…or totally lame?
