Description
For lols! The Mighty Boosh is an absolutely fantastic series and one of my favourite TV programmes. Old Gregg is stupidly creepy yet hilarious and I thought I should do the costume since it's something not many people would expect me to do since it's very different to my usual costumes XD

Most of it came out ok although the wig isn't long enough, the tutu was rubbish and my makeup was very annoying but I still enjoyed it!

The wig was made with spray-painted carpet tape and duct tape stapled (yes, stapled) to a wig I cut short.

Most things were just bought such as the wig, shirt and tie but I made the tutu. I tried to make it rubbish which was a bad idea because I made it TOO rubbish D: If I was ever to rewear this I'd remake it but I probably won't. I really want to have a go at doing a Howard costume now XD

Ah, no, that's not me unfortunately. I did have a Vince but no Howard. That was another Gregg who was very awesome!
