Mr. T and his girl costume..."I pity the fool" that does not love this homemade costume. The hardest part is painting your face. I gathered up some army cargo pants, red tight shirt, weight training belt, army boots that laced up, and all the gold bling for the perfect Mr. T!!! You can NEVER have too much gold.
I cut the mohawk out of some black felt I bought at Hobby Lobby. My hubby is bald anyway so I just painted his head and then used double sided velcro to adhere it. I also bought a black mustache to give Mr. T is perfect look. I added some gold sunglasses for extra disguise.
My outfit was random but it was a couple theme party so I went as his date. I recommend you allow enough time to paint all the brown makeup on well. It takes quite awhile to get total coverage.
This costume is a SURE HIT and it will get lots of laughs. Good Luck... so many people did not even have a clue who we really were that night. Memorable costume for sure. Happy Halloween
I went to an 80's hockey team fundraiser costume party. Won first prize for the Mr. T Costume.
My Mr. T took a lot of paint and a whole lot of patients to make it work. I am 6 foot 1" white guy trying to pull off one of the toughest dudes in the world. Worked out well. Though the blue eyes kind of gave away who was dressed up like Mr. T to all of the attendees. My wife took 2nd prize for a punk rocker.
The costume is made up of a scull cap wig, paint, chains, torn shirt, cargo pants and boots. Had a ball but I began to melt in the heat and by the end of the evening the paint was dripping off me. It was kind of scary. I went from Mr. T to dawn of the dead in just a few hours.
Cheers to all of the Mr.Ts that took on the challenge of the costume.
It took me over a month to grow my beard, I used rope painted gold for most of the chains. Painter's bib and brace for dungarees dyed several times, once pink. Plimsoles that were too small, clip on earrings that left me scarred for life. Brown face paint (several layers as I am pretty pale). Mascara to dye my beard black.
I am naturally bald so had to find some realistic afro hair so I got a fancy dress chest wig which doubled for T's mohawk. Kitchen roll inserts sprayed gold for T's cuffs. Took me over 4 hours to get ready but was really worth it as my costume went down a storm. I even bought a lot of Snickers bars to throw at people. I pity the fools that think my Homemade Mr T Costume isn't good. Check me out sucka's!
It actually took me almost a month to have everything ready for this DIY Mr. T Halloween costume. The hair was all my real hair I grew it out and then shaved it for the costume the beard was also real.
To actually apply the make up and get the costume ready to go out it took me almost 2 hours for the make up and black hair color to completely dry. I bought everything from the striped socks, combat boots, camo pants, weight belt, feather dream catcher ear ring, and all the gold chains.
