Takin' Out The Trash Costume
Takin' Out The Trash
|Costume type:||Costumes for Men|
This homemade costume for men entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Giles, the 'Takin' Out The Trash' costume creator:
That's me in the costume. To be more precise, I'm Barack's legs and Romney's torso.
The key to the costume was making it convincingly look like Romney's being carried around by Obama. Using a suit helped as the tails of the jacket help cover the chicken wire under Obama's body and all of the wire connecting him to the garbage can.
I bought all of the clothes at local thrift stores, the trash can and gloves at a hardware store and the masks at a Halloween store. I bought the political pins online to give a nice finishing touch (helps, too, in case someone couldn't figure out who was who!).
I had a lot of fun wearing this and may go out and vote in it on Tuesday!
