Last we checked, coating your body in melted silver wasn’t the safest way to dress up for Halloween. So Jesse Wellens instead enlisted the help of makeup artist Alexys Fleming to help turn him into the Silver Surfer. His impressive getup was made even cooler with a silver electric surfboard that let him cruise through the streets of New York City.

He might not have been able to help Galactus find a new world to devour, but he certainly must have whizzed past a few shawarma trucks as he surfed through the Big Apple.
