This homemade costume for groups entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Adriane, the 'Coming to America' costume creator:

To capture the essence of the entire cast of the comedy classic "Coming to America" we each made our costumes from scratch using yards of fabric, liquid stitch, and various household items. It was a lot of fun see people's faces light up when they realized who we all were!

Thank you for proving that "black face" is not needed to capture the essence.

where can i get the vest

#4 comment by Adriane October 8, 2015

[at]Bob - We made them. We brought the fabric from a fabric store and just cut them into a vest shape and used fabric glue to fold over the edges. No sewing required.

Not a single face was painted brown, yet we all know who they're supposed to be. See? It's possible. (But can we take a minute to appreciate that they even included Sexual Chocolate!!)
