This is my homemade Ke$ha costume. I based the costume off of her music video “Tik Tok” especially the lyrics, “Wake up in the morning feelin like P-Diddy, grab my glasses I’m out the door I’m gonna hit the city before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack, cause when I leave for the night I ain’t comin back” So I had my baby bottle of Jack and a tooth brush. In the video, Ke$ha also gets arrested so I wore handcuffs.
To make the actually outfit part, I bought a plain black t-shirt and cut the sleeves and neck to make it into a bro tank. Then using Elmer’s clear glue and SO MUCH GLITTER I made her signature money sign. I then used that same glue and applied it all over my arms and chest and sprinkled glitter onto me. Since it was clear glue it didn’t show, but by the end of the night it was peeling off. I did the same for my face but just did it more concentrated with silver glitter. The gold spandex shorts were from a dance costume I had when I was in elementary school that somehow still fit and I just wore my cheetah tights underneath. For my hair, we just used a three barrel curler and teased it like crazy and added more glitter.
The key to this costume was glitter and clear glue.
I love the Chappelle show and think that man is a genius. So I was looking for a good costume and at the time the Chappelle show was huge. So my favorite skit on the show was the Rick James skit with Charlie Murphy, loved it so much I said I have to be Rick James. I broke down the voice and everything and made this Rick James Costume.
I was looking for the costume everywhere all over NYC for a Rick James costume couldn’t find one. So what I did was find a white sports jacket from a thrift store. Made some blue and red stars out of felt and sewn it onto the jacket (put glitter on the stars to jazz it up a bit). Found some white pants and white sneakers. Oh the hair is some Cleopatra wig I found.
So I did it and went to the Halloween day parade in the Village and found Prince who was another great character from the Chappelle show.
I spent ages on thinking of a costume for my friends fancy dress party. I wanted something unique that know one else would have. I looked around the costume shop, but i really didn't want a bought costume. I saw few bits like the blow up boobs and I thought that I could make a Pamela Anderson costume.
This costume was too easy to make. I had all the clothes already, all I needed to buy was the blow up bra and I had a blond wig.
For this Pamela Anderson costume you need a red swimsuit and white shorts, but if you're wild, you might not want to wear the shorts. You need FAKE boobs, blond hair or wig, heels,or sandals, I also had sunglasses.
You can dig out all these clothes around your home, so its great for a budget costume.
I had an old pair of gold glasses. I made the make-shift coach's headset from two old Walkman headphones. The Seahawk vest was in my closet and the mustache was trimmed to look like his. Holding the paper to cover my mouth when I spoke was a clincher, as Holmgren did that every game. And this is my Homemade Coach Mike Holmgren Costume!
