Overweight Freddie Costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Men|
This homemade costume for men entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from John, the 'Overweight Freddie' costume creator:
The person who is wearing the costume is me John Pereira! I got the idea from the Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody! When I was younger people used to tell me I looked like Freddie Mercury. So when I saw the movie I thought to myself “I can pull this off.” The what tank tee and 80’s Rayband sunglasses were bought for me by my sister for Christmas last year. The pants I bought at the Thrift store. The exact matching studded arm band and belt I bought from Amazon. The 80% matching shoes I already owned. I built the micro phone out of a flash light duct taped to a cane. I then duct taped the rest of the cane and light to get the right color. I then took a sharpie and colored all the parts black that needed it. I built it custom as I could not procure a rea microphone and stand in time. All that was left was for me to shave off my beard that I have had for at least 10 years or more. A little hair gel and Whala...overweight Freddie Mercury!!!
In all total the whole costume was probably around $100!
