I grabbed a lady's suit from what must've been the 80s, a curtain, a button-down shirt and some rubber boots at a thrift store. Picked up some cardboard from the local supermarket, and some wire, glitter, glue, clips, paint and tacks from a craft store, all for this Prince costume.

Since I couldn't find a frilly sort of pirate shirt, the end ruffles from the curtain were sewed onto the button down shirt, and the cuffs of the jacket. The guitar was made from layers of cardboard, with extra bits to raise the ends so that the wire could be raised. Tacks were painted and put in the top of the guitar to for "tightening" the strings, and the whole thing, along with the boots which were cut down to look more like platforms, were painted purple. While the paint was still wet, I added the glitter to both.

Details on the guitar were done with Sharpies (black and silver). And a strap from a bag was clipped to the clips that were attached to the guitar.

Finally a two week mustache eyeliner, gelled hair, skinny jeans, and a symbol belt buckle made from cardboard, glued solid then silver Sharpied, later and I was Prince.

This is the coolest Prince costume! I saw it in a Google image search and was going to ask you where you bought it; I wouldn't have guessed that you made it. It's very sweet!

F-in Awesome!

That is some amazing stuff. I'm going as Prince this year and thought it was an original idea, guess not. Bravo on the home-made job. I was going for a different look, the Rave un2 the year 2000 look, but I don't know if anyone but true fans would recognize it. Might have to go more traditional. I do want to get a real nice symbol necklace though. Any ideas? Keep it real fellow Revolutionaries, U Got the Look.

I love Prince. i found this one piece suit in my mom's closet, she claims it used to be hot. I sprayed some boots, cut a guitar out of plywood with a jigsaw. This Homemade Prince Costume was pretty straightforward.
