Deadliest Catch / Crab Fisherman Costume

Crab fisherman

Costume type:  Costumes for Adults
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for adults entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Melissa, the 'Deadliest Catch' costume creator:

I got the idea for this costume after finding the orange rubber coveralls at a thrift store for 99 cents. The inspiration came from watching the Discovery Channel show "Deadliest Catch" about Alaskan crab fishermen.

I used permanent marker & stencil to draw the name of the fishing vessel "Time Bandit" to the front of the coveralls.
I pulled my hair back into a baseball cap & wore a black hooded sweatshirt that I already had on hand.
I rolled up a piece of white paper to make a fake cigarette.
I used brown halloween makeup as a beard that I applied with a cosmetic sponge.
For the crab cage - I used a metal animal trap that we already had on hand. For the crabs inside I went online & looked up "crab coloring book pages" to find an image that I liked. I printed them out on red construction paper, cut them out & taped them inside the cage.
