Looking to turn the world upside down with a DIY upside down man costume? Before starting your unique Halloween costume, you’ll need to collect some essential supplies that you already have in your closet. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pants or Jeans: The base of your upside-down look. Opt for a pair that fits snugly.
- Shoes or Sneakers: Ensure they’re clean as they’ll be drawing a lot of attention up top!
- Button Up Shirt: This will be worn as the ‘lower half’ of the costume, giving the illusion of an upside-down torso.
- Belt: Not just for style, it helps hold the shirt in place around your waist.
- Safety Pins: Use safety pins to hold your outfit together.
- Ski Gear: A ski hat and gloves will help with the illusion of a head and hands.
With these items in hand, you’re all set to create a costume that’ll surely be the talk of any event. Ready to see the world from a different perspective? Let’s craft away!
Upside Down Costume Instructions
- Grab some old discarded pants – bigger is better because you’ll need a big booty area since your head will fill the space. Try them on your head and cut a couple of small eye holes. Wear shoes on your hands.
- Grab a long-sleeved shirt and put it on your legs. Use safety pins to hold it up by pinning it to the pants (if you are in the costume you’ll need help with this.
- Dig a ski hat and gloves out of your winter gear. Safety pin the hat onto the shirt to be a head, and wear the gloves on your feet.
That’s it!! If you hop on one foot and wave your arms (which look like legs) it gives a crowd-pleasing break-dancing effect -so fun!
