Homemade Dazed and Confused Group Halloween Costume
My friends and I all dressed up in this Homemade Dazed and Confused Group Halloween Costume a few years ago. My twin brother (Slater) and I (Wooderson) love Halloween and we always make our friends get as dedicated as us when we make our costumes.
From the left of the picture moving right: Pink: A simple pair of jeans, a grey t-shirt, and shell necklace make up the clothes and then he added a 70's style wig. In the movie Pink never has is own paddle but this design is from the friend Melvin Slater: A pair of black converse all-stars, green pants, and tan t-shirt are all easy to find but my brother actually drew the marijuana leaf on the shirt himself. He had a super long wig that he trimmed to the right length and then topped it with a driving cap. Dawson: A pair of overalls, blue t-shirt and some mascara to make his eyebrows bushier and another handmade paddle completed his outfit. O'Bannion: Pair of jeans with shirt found at Goodwill and yet another paddle. Wooderson: I found some orange pants at a thrift store. I printed off the Ted Nugent album cover and ironed it onto a t-shirt. I already had a good necklace to use. Found a nice blonde mustache to glue on and this is my real hair that I styled. I also had a tattoo drawn on my forearm as well as a pack of cigarettes rolled into my sleeve.

For Halloween 2008 we dressed up as some of the characters from Richard Linklater's cult-classic "Dazed and Confused". My friend and I dressed as the "Senior" girls in the hazing scene, and our boyfriends went as Dave "I love them high school girls" Wooderson and O'Bannion (complete with paddle).
Everything was a Homemade Dazed and Confused Group Costume - including O'Bannion's patchwork shirt, which was crafted by cutting up pieces of fabric and gluing them onto a button-down shirt. We even scanned and printed out a cover of the Ted Nugent album that was on Wooderson's t-shirt throughout the movie and ironed it onto a white t-shirt. For the Senior girls, we cut up some white sweatshirts and sewed them back up to resemble vintage football jerseys. Then we ironed on the word "SENIORS".
We also carried around trick ketchup and mustard, which actually "squirted" out string. Everyone who saw thought that we were fantastic!
