Costume Information

Cost : £10~
Time Taken : 2 or 3 hours?

Another pretty simple costume. I owned the shirt and tie, and got the trousers and flag cheaply from ebay.

I used a pipe-cleaner for the curl and thought it worked really well xD

Unfortunately my jacket was destroyed by my attempt to dye it a better colour so I dont have a picture with it =(

I especially like the curl, I'd never have thought to use a pipecleaner, but it looks PERFECT! ^^

Thanks man. Yeah alot of people do it with wigs and it kinda looks stupid... Pipe cleaners all the way! Though I did manage to rip out a big chunk of my hair with the bluetack I used to hold the pipecleaner behind my ear

Ouch, painful!
With Austria's Mariazell hair, I had to gel that part up, hairclip it in place until it set, then hold it in place while I hairsprayed the CRAP out of it.
As a result, I am single-handedly responsible for the hole in the ozone layer!

Yeah, it looks pretty awesome in your pics, but yeah, ozone layer frowns on you. Pipecleaners - ecofriendly and ridiculously cheap <3
