Marty McFly ((BTTF Part One)) - Back to the Future


This was one of the first costume I ever put together in 2013 for a non-uniform day in my last year at school. It came a long way since then, though, and I'm still not happy with it - I still want a more accurate jacket and body warmer. Although, I am really proud of all the small details I put into this outfit. I had headphones, sunglasses, a walkman, genuine 1980s Nike trainers, braces (that you can't see in any photo) and a black Casio watch.

Granted, though most of the pieces in this outfit are not hand made, I had to alter the shirt to fit me, and I had to size down a very large denim shirt to fit me. I would really have loved to have had a more accurate wig and a more accurate bodywarmer. I also didn't get time to finish off the insides of the sleeves, which I wanted to line with a green spotted cream fabric, but unfortunately didn't get around to.

I struggled to get my wig into a suitably "Marty" hairstyle, and regretted the amount of styling I forced into it the next day when I had to try and get it back to it's factory settings for my Merlin setting. It was also extremely hot to wear so many layers in the Con. So hot.

New Wig WIP

I’ve been trying to improve this costume since 2014 — BTTF is my favourite film and I love Marty so I’ve been trying to do him and the film justice for forever. I bought a job lot of gross old wigs in 2017 and cleaned and fixed them up with detergent. Today I’ve thinned the wig out and steamed and and tried to style it.
