This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Mercedes, the 'Lil Wayne' costume creator:
I actually got the idea from another costume website and decided to do my own version of it. I am a girl, so it was pretty funny to act like a guy for the day.
I probably only spent around $25-$40 for the entire costume.
For the outfit, I bought a pack of cheap white tees and boxers from Walmart and I borrowed a pair of black guy skinny jeans from a friend. I also happened to have a pair of white vans that went perfectly.
I went to downtown LA to get a belt that had a big "LA" buckle and a black hat that said LA. I also found a cheap black watch there that I thought added to his character.
For the cross necklace, I found one at a Halloween store in the priest section and I just glued on jewels to make it all blingy. The hair was a dread wig from Walmart that I wanted to turn into more of the style of dreads/braids he has so I twisted pieces together and took an old straightener to it so that it would stay. I also had black sunglasses that I used.
For the grill, I found vampire teeth that I cut the fangs off of and glued on the jewels to make them look like actual grills.
For the makeup, I bought the darkest color foundation which I believe was cocoa from Walmart. I only applied it to my face and it actually ended up being too dark so I had to apply lightly.
For the tattoos, I used liquid eyeliner. I looked up all the face tattoos so that those would be correct but for my arms I just got the general idea and tried to fill in the spaces with whatever I could think of.
