I use to love the WWF when I was kid! Although many young people now do not remember the old characters, many remember Macho Man because of the many commercials he did. So I wanted to recreate that. He wore so many different outfits, it was hard to pick one. So I did a collaboration of a few.
I had a Macho Man Shirt I used to start. I cut slits in the sleeves and in between the slits I added gold and silver metallic wired ribbon. I pinned them and used the rest to wrap my hands like he did. I found 2 pairs of tights, lime green and stripes. I wore them over each other and cut holes in them to show two tones. I wore a leotard over the tights to look like the wrestlers underwear. I got a WWF wrestling belt at a kids store. I wore a pair of old boots and put a goatee on and mullet type wig. I took an old cowboy hat and made and big M on it like Macho man did and tied it around the hat. LAST but not least I threw a few slim jims in my belt and I was done!
P.S. I am a girl!

Comments for Coolest Macho Man Randy Savage Costume
For the Macho Man Randy Savage costume the first thing I got was the hat then I designed the rest based on the hat. Then I got the pants and cut streamers to tape on the bottom to man then wrestling pants. For the shirt I just got a plan white shirt and bought some shirt dying spray and sprayed it to match the hat, and did the writing with a permanent marker then cut the shirt to make it look like one of his shirts. I also bought a white bandanna and sprayed that as well. I grew out my beard and used a wash out hair dye for my beard and hair.
Bought white slot glasses at the costume shop. Then taped of my hands with sports tape. And final touch was the boa and a slim Jim.
I hadn't the money I did in 2009 to purchase a professionally assembled costume. Since I had grown a beard (for the Blackhawks' playoff run) I opted to use the beard to my advantage. It took no more that $40 worth of material and knowing someone with extensive sewing skills. I used a pair of old professional wrestling tights (what I do as a part time job) and a leather jacket I was able to find at the local thrift store. In total, about 8 yards of fleece material, and the finish product of this Macho Man Costume earned me significant notoriety on the greatest day of the year.
