Coolest Conan O'Brien Costume

Homemade Conan O'Brien Costume

Homemade Conan O'Brien Costume

This Conan O'Brien Costume is our 5 year old daughter. The suit and tie were bought at a thrift store. The wig was purchased at a costume shop. We originally intended to buy a blonde wig and paint it, but were pleased with the color of the "You're Fired" wig which I'm assuming is Donald Trump.

We hairsprayed as much as we could do get the pompadour as high as we could. I built the desk out of 1/8" foam board that I covered with shelf paper to give the wooden appearance. I made a microphone out of Styrofoam and a dowel and painted it black then glued it to the desk. I also glued some blue index cards to the desk to look like the cards he uses while interviewing.

I wanted to make sure people knew who she was supposed be so I traced the Late Night logo onto some poster board, cut out the letters and moon and glued them to the front of the desk. I used fishing line that I affixed to the inside of the desk at all four points and made a loop that would hang around her neck for ease in carrying.

We were so proud of the costume we submitted a photo to the Late Night people. We were pleasantly surprised when they showed it one night. They also showed it the following year using a photo that they themselves had found on the web. Enjoy.

Coolest Homemade Pancho Villa Costume

Homemade Pancho Villa Costume

I wanted a costume that nobody else was going to have, so I put this sexy Homemade Pancho Villa Costume together.

The hat is a Chevy's birthday hat(you know, when you go in and tell them it's your birthday and they come over and sing and humiliate you with this giant monstrosity of a hat?...ya that one). I spray painted it brown (nothing special, just some spray paint from any hardware store)and let it completely dry. I bought the mustache and bullets at a costume store, you can probably find them anywhere they sell Halloween stuff. The shirt and belt buckle are my grandpa's.

I found the pants and boots at a thrift store. The toy gun and grenades were purchased (as a lovely set)at a cheap toy store, and spray painted black for uh... historic accuracy). I bought the gun holster at a surplus store. Painted some scruff on and BAM! PANCHO VILLA!

Hope you guys enjoy. My girlfriend and I got tons of complements that night (check her out under Frida Kahlo). We had a lot of fun putting this together!

Coolest Homemade Bob Barker Costume

Homemade Bob Barker Costume

Growing up I spend morning after morning with my Grandmother watching the Price is Right, and feeling that the tanned man on screen was like another surrogate grandfather. Bob was part of the family.

Now since he is no longer on the air, I felt as though it was proper time to immortalize him in a Homemade Bob Barker Costume form. Although he is retired, he will always remain with all of us.

Grammy Award-winning Hip Hop artist, T-Pain, created some buzz with his "Big A$$ Chain" jewelry so I decided to go one step further.

This homemade T Pain costume took me 2 weeks to complete.
