Homemade Walter Sobchak Costume from The Big Lebowski

This Homemade Walter Sobchak Costume from The Big Lebowski was a lot of fun! So this time I decided to go as Walter Sobchak from the Big Lebowski. I thought of it several months before Halloween when I was trying to figure out a costume or character that would fit my body type well. And then it hit me! WALTER SOBCHAK! I mean, am I wrong?

So we decided to skip the Hollywood hoopla this year and find something a little cheaper and a little closer to home. Off to the Canyon Club! When we showed up the parking lot was empty. Oh no! No one's going to this party. We sat in the parking lot for 15 minutes trying to decide if we should skip town and head to H-Wood or stick our choice out. We decided to stick it out.

There were 10 people there to start. We left and got some dinner hoping something would change between now and then. And when we returned it did!

What a great night! The costume was a hit! I had the great opportunity to take lots of pics with others that wanted a picture with Walter, or as many said, "the guy from The Big Lebowski".
Happy Halloween everyone!

Can't wait for 2010.

I was inspired two Halloweens ago and came up with my (second) best Halloween costume, I've ever had. When I say 'best', I mean most accurate and most awesome. Any Big Lebowski fan loves to see a good dude costume, but nailing the Walter costume is it's own deal. I highly recommend this homemade Walter from Big Lebowski costume to anyone. It takes a couple of hours to track down the clothing, but other than that it's a pretty easy costume to make.

Important things:

- Went to the barber and actually got a flat top hair cut. Used gel and hairspray to keep it up.

- Grew my facial hair out for 10 or so days to have a real beard.

- Wore a fat suit (just the belly that I bought at a Halloween Store).

- Cut sleeves off jacket from Goodwill to make vest.

- Aviators, Dude. Aviators.

- I found some good work boots to wear.

- Found under T-shirt to match color from online photos.

- DID NOT take the fake (painted black on orange) gun in public.

I suggest using multiple online photos. This helps a lot.
