Free Greasy Fifties Mechanic Halloween Costume
Here’s yet another chance for kids to get dirty. Make a free costume that turns you into a greasy fifties mechanic. Borrow your dads work coveralls. Roll up the sleeves and legs if they’re too big. Stick a wrench in the back pocket or use the tool belt again. Smudge your face and hands with charcoal mixed with Vaseline. Slick your hair back too.
Free Hobo Halloween Costume
Being homeless is no joke but you can dress as an old fashioned Hobo without offending anyone. Find some old holy, baggy clothes at a thrift store or in the rag bag. Get a stick from the back yard. Tie a bandanna filled with your pretend hobo gear and grub to it. You can just stuff it to make it look full. Hang an old tin pan and spoon from your belt. This is how Hobos traveled lightly by rail back in the day. As a final touch, smear your face with charcoal again.
Free Silly, Squirt Gun Packing Robber Halloween Costume
When you design this free Halloween costume, be sure your gun is obviously fake so nobody mistakes you for a real robber. Choose a brightly colored neon super soaker as your weapon. It sillies up the costume a bit. Otherwise, all you need is some black clothes and pantyhose for your face. Stick one leg of the pantyhose over your head and face. Don’t cut the other leg off. Just leave it dangling for a funny effect.
