Homemade Alex Delarge from Clockwork Orange Costume
I really like getting into character for Halloween. Rather than going to a costume shop and picking something off the shelf, I like to think about movie characters that have intrigued me or other ideas that you might not see on a regular basis. I love going to thrift shops and pulling the pieces together and it's a challenge to me to see how inexpensively I can put together a costume. I also love the make-up portion of the whole Halloween mystique.
With that in mind, I remembered the movie Clockwork Orange and thought it would be fun to make a Homemade Alex Delarge from Clockwork Orange Costume. It was a simple costume yet fun to pull together. I scrounged through the clearance racks for off-season white pants and found those for only $9. I already owned shoes and a white shirt; I found a pair of suspenders, as well as a hat, on clearance! The only thing I paid full price for was the cane at $4.
The most fun was doing the make-up. I really like how it turned out and I hope you do too.

The 4 of us (Me as Alex in the middle) decided to do a group costume for this years Halloween, and what cooler group is there than Alex and his Droogs!
The Homemade Clockwork Orange Group Costume was made up from what we had lying around at our homes (luckily, including the hats). The shirts are all mine except for the one I am wearing which was from a charity shop. The charity shops also provided us each with a decent set of braces and the trousers were taken from an army surplus store. Altogether each of our costumes came to a grand total of £12 ($20).
Th costumes went down fantastically well, although it did mean we couldn't have many drinks because we were always on photo duty; we were constantly bombarded by strangers who wanted their photos taken with us.
The submitted photo of us is at my friends house watching Clockwork Orange and drinking "Moloko Plus" (in our case milk and white rum) as a warm up before our night out!
