Homemade Michael Jackson Billie Jean Halloween Costume
Many people plan to pay tribute to the one and only King of Pop by dressing up like him in one of his extraordinary costumes this Halloween. There are several costume stores that sell a huge variety of Michael Jackson costumes. However, you can add more weight to its importance by wearing your own homemade Michael Jackson costume.
The materials you need to make your own costume are black jacket, black shirt, black pants, white glove and white socks. You can buy them at your favorite clothing store. You also need several packages of oversized shiny black and silver sequins, small size silver sequins, glue, glue stick, and a glue gun that you can find at any craft store. Here’s how you can make your own homemade Michael Jackson Billie Jean costume:
First step: the jacket
Recreate Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean jacket by removing the collar portion of the jacket and simply sew the portion you removed. Then completely cover the jacket in large shiny black sequins with a glue stick and glue gun. Glue each of the sequins to the surface of the jacket. Just be careful when handling the glue gun as it may be hot. Large sequins will reduce the time to completely cover the entire jacket with sequins.
Second step: the shirt
Once the jacket is ready, do the same with the black shirt. This time, don’t take your collar off and wear large silver sequins instead of black. Glue each of the sequins onto the black shirt. There is no order to follow when putting the sequins on the shirt. As long as the entire jersey is covered, you’re doing a great job.
Third step: the pants
Choose matching black pants that are short for your height, but fit well at the waist. Michael Jackson’s hanging pants are one of his popular trademarks. However, if you have your own black pants that you haven’t worn yet, you can simply cut them shorter and sew the pants underneath.
Step four: the glove and one-piece socks
Make your own sparkly one-piece gloves and socks by covering them with small-size silver sequins. Since the sequins are quite small, it can be dangerous to use a glue gun to attach them. Maybe you can use fabric glue and stick them on the glove and socks. Let them dry overnight before wearing to ensure hold.
Now, wear your black shoes, do the jheri-curl hairstyle and makeup. Practice his moonwalk dance move and you’ll be ready to act like Michael Jackson in your very own homemade Billie Jean Halloween costume. This is an easier homemade costume to make than any other Halloween costume. You can surely pay tribute to your favorite pop star with this homemade Billie Jean costume.
