Side Show Barker Costume

Ladies and gents, step right up to see some of the world's most amazing wonders!

Costume type:  Costumes for Men
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for men entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Dan, the 'Side Show Barker' costume creator:

The costume I'm wearing was created using a store-bought vest, arm band, & bow tie, along with a showman's hat I'd gotten for a buck years ago from Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor at Westland Mall in Miami. I already owned the shirt & pants. I had a photo taken while pointing with a stick and then created a photo composite, placing myself into a side show scene to complete the effect.

Congrats Dan! Westland mall still exists after all these years but I doubt Farrels exists. I remember going to that Farrels for ice cream with some church people from Miami Gardens church of Christ back in 1973 or 1974. Your photo is definitely a winner. It should proudly hang on the wall of any Lums restaurant or ice cream parlor.
