costume is one of my favorites though I've only worn it
to a few events. It was a bit of a challenge to make even
with most of it being purchsed from thift stores.
The vest, shorts, and jacket were all purchased at either
Goodwill or Value Village stores. The wig I got from the
local wig shop. The shirt I made by buying a plain white
T-shirt that I ironed the image on to. I had to track down
the image online and edit it and clean it up to get it to
look as good as it does. If you look closely you mightbe
able to tell it is actually printed out in 3 parts as my
printer only prints so wide.
The vest is just a black vest. The shorts are actually pants
I cut down and modified. The sticks on the shorts I printed
out onto iron on paper and ironed on to the shorts.
I made the wide wrist band for the watch using pleater,
snaps and a cheap watch. I also made two simple leather
band bracelets for the costume as well.
The orange jacket I made after finding a bright yellow jacket
at a thirft store. I dyed it with red and it came out the
perfect orange. I went as far as to properly write "Wyld
Stallyns" on the sleeve of the jacket and tracked down
an old shoelace to weave through the button holes like in
The most expensive parts of the costume have to be the wig
and the shoes.
For the shoes I just bought black Converse shoes and dyed
white laces purple for them.
