This Homemade Slash Halloween Costume was created using a lot of things implemented from home as well as Goodwill.
From top to bottom: The hat was purchased at a Halloween store a couple days before Halloween and could have been a top hat from anything. The wig however was a wig you can locate at any Halloween store as it is the Howard Stern Wig. After using these two props I added sunglasses located at the dollar store.
I tore the sleeves off of a black T-shirt and used stick on tattoo’s to decorate the arms. In addition to these details I wore pleather pants (found at Goodwill) and jewelry from my mother (such as the medallion and bracelets) and painted my nails a charcoal color. I also made sure I had a cigarette in my mouth at all times.
The additional picture I have includes my friend who dressed as Axel and my pants are ripped due rock’n out to hard.
Comments for Coolest Homemade Slash Halloween Costume 4
The kids and I LOVE Guns N Roses and what better way to show your age than having them dress up like the two main members?
My son is Slash. His costume was made simple by using a wig and a homemade top hat we made out of neoprene material from a hand made pattern. My daughter is Axl and her costume includes a homemade kilt we sewed up from a pattern and hand drawn tattoos to mimic Axl's real tattoos! The hair is her natural hair and she grew it out all year just for this costume! She intends on donating it to Locks of Love for wigs to be made out of it for cancer patients after Halloween!
We have had a real ball this year with making these convincing costumes and have received much applaud for recreating THE best band from the 80's and 90's!
My older sister and I have been taking our duo dress up costumes very seriously for years now. We have done some pretty successful ones in the past, but last year's Guns 'N' Roses Couple Costume killed it in a big way.
People were really impressed with the level of detail we went into to make the outfits, tattoos and attitude authentic. The funniest part is that I was wearing a wig as Axl (but a real human hair one so I dyed it a couple times to get the perfect shade of orange-y red) but my sister did not wear one, she just happens to have long black super curly hair that she frizzed out for the night...and everywhere we went people were asking her where she got such an authentic Slash wig!
We definitely rocked Miami more than anyone else in these costumes!
My sister and I decided to be Axle and Slash from Guns and Roses. She's wearing a wig that we braided with a big bandana, I teased my hair to no end, bought a fake cigarette and a bunch of metal bracelets from the dollar stores.
We both wore Gun's n Rose's T-Shirts, add leather jackets and jeans. Our Homemade Guns N Roses Halloween Costume was a great success.
