Lil Sweet & Diet Dr. Pepper Costume

Lil Sweet & Diet Dr. Pepper Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Couples
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for couples entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Greg, the 'Lil Sweet & Diet Dr. Pepper' costume creator:

Me as "Lil Sweet" from the Diet Dr. Pepper commercials, and my girlfriend Davi as my very own can of Diet Dr. Pepper!

Found most of my costume pieces online. Leather pants and red snakeskin shoes from eBay. Jacket, wig and gloves from Amazon. Fabric for scarf and headband from a fabric shop and sewn by my lady :)

Davi's got a white H&M dress with a Diet Dr Pepper logo printed on a white shirt with iron-on transfer paper, then cut out and taped to the dress (she didn't want to ruin the dress for future use). Same fabric form my sash used to make her headband with a pop can top as the center! Her red leather Chuck Taylor heels are all hers :)

What did you search for a wig? I can't seem to find anything similar to that one. What style is that? Is it red?

This is the wig I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NHDM00A

NOTE: I did have to trim it, it was pretty long! The lady that cuts my hair did it for me when I came in for a haircut. Pretty funny sight haha :)

Do you happen to still have the link for the jacket by chance? Can't find one similar to that. Ordered one & seems too shiny, not right look ��

I used this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BTHVK0G

Definitely runs small; I'm 5'6"/140lbs, and VERY glad I ordered a Large instead of a Medium (I'm normally a mens' Small).

Damien-

Glad you like it man! Was pretty happy with the way it all turned out. Here's my list for ya:

Jacket: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BTHVK0G

Pants: Got on EBay, but purchased from an individual auction, seller 'abbotmik'. They' were womens' Newport News Jeanology maroon leather pants.

Wig: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NHDM00A

Gloves: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JSJMEDU

Boots: Got on EBay as well. Auction page is no longer up, but was called "Mens Ankle Boots British Style Pointed Toe Metal Buckle Korean Fashion A161" from seller 'goodying66'.

The headband and scarf are just from fabric I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. Had a black spandex-y shirt on hand, and made a necklace out of pop tabs. Hope this helps!
