I wanted to dress up with my roommate so I kept looking for ideas that two guys could do. We eventually decided on the classic Napoleon Dynamite duo of Napoleon and Pedro.
I started collecting materials for my Napoleon costume from all the local Goodwills and Targets. Napoleon required really big and old-looking jeans, moon boots (very hard to find), a belt, a white T-shirt (plus letters I bought to iron on the words "vote for Pedro"), goony glasses and big hair. The costume was finished off with a droopy face and slowed speech.
It was a really simple costume to make. I also picked up an old-looking red jacket, because it was freezing outside, but it also added nicely to the costume. It was awesome; no-one had to ask who I was supposed to be and everyone said 'hi' to Napoleon.
We wanted to be something that would make people laugh. We thought that maybe we could pull these two off. And we did, we were a hit. It was probably two of the best costumes ever! And we had endless Halloween photos taken of us!
