It’s always difficult to come up with a unique costume for the next Halloween party. A new Halloween costume was created this week, for the entire world to see. A Chilean Miner costume!
What will be necessary for the look? You will need a green jumpsuit for the realistic version. But any color will basically work. Don’t forget that you can always dye it to the right color. Try to get it dirty enough as you were underground in a mine for 69 or 70 days!
A pair of black, Oakley look alike, sunglasses are a must have. The miners were given these by Oakley. The real version is on Oakley.com for $180.00. Any black glasses will work when on a budget!
A construction hat will need to be worn, preferably in bright blue. Try to have a headlight put on it (a flashlight will work in a pinch). There are lights that are made for hiking at night. Walmart has bicycle helmets with headlights that could be substituted as well.
A woman can also wear the Chilean miner costume. Imagine all the alterations you could make to it. There could be a sexy miner version. Wear a little cleavage or make it a short hot pants outfit. You were supposed to make it “dirty”, right?
We don’t mean to make light of the situation of the Chilean miners. Thankfully there was a good ending to the rescue efforts. We will see how they fare with their new success in the weeks to come. With Halloween almost here, you have to admit this will make a great costume!
