|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
I am wearing the costume. My costume is loosely based on David Bowie's early personas, Ziggy Stardust and Halloween Jack (Rebel Rebel?Diamond Dogs era). My costume wasn't store bought pre-packaged...but I bought a shiny red orange David Bowie looking wig and the authentic vintage 70s button up shirt from ebay. I bought the polka dot scarf for only $2 at Goodwill. I already had the red pants and black platform boots (hard to tell in the pictures). The only thing I bought at the Halloween store was the pirate eye patch and earring. I bought the red guitar off of ebay but you probably could get it from a Halloween store too. Gathering the items were fun, although a took a bit more effort since I was trying to look as accurate as possible. In the end the makeup took the most time as I had to learn how to cover and hide my eyebrows as I sure didn't want to shave them off! It was a very fun costume and end up being a hit at where I partied!
