Ok, so a friend once told me that the day you decide to stop dressing up for Halloween is the day you officially accept that you are old lol. I almost through in the towel until I was watching an old episode of MASH and immediately got the idea of becoming Mr T.!
I Googled images of him and A LOT of different variety of outfits came up. I didn’t want to spend too much money so I decided on the old school militant Mr T.
I borrowed a friend’s camo pants and ordered an official Mr T. wig online. When the wig arrived it didn’t look as good as I had imagined. So I consulted with a make up artist friend and I bought a bald wig, then cut the hair from the wig and glued it onto the bald wig.
I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money on gold chains so I only bought 6 and layered it on top of cheap Mardi Gras beads. I originally planned to be shirtless but the forecast predicted rain so I went to my storage of old clothes and found a camo tank top which was perfect!
I never imagined this costume would be such a hit. All of my friends were amazed and so took hundreds of pictures with random people yelling “Mr T!” This by far was the coolest costume I have ever worn and I styles and crafted it by myself for cheap!
