So they have just seen Bugsy Malone and have decided that this is the costume they want for Halloween or for that party. So now what do you do? Read out guide and find out what steps you can take to make their dreams come true!
- There are a few things that you need to guarantee that the theme hits the spot:
- Black trousers
- Black shirt
- White or black tie
- Black suit jacket
- Black lace up shoes – school shoes will do the trick!
- Tin foil
- A black hat
- Gold chains – you don’t have to use real gold for this one!
- Eyeliner pencil
- Hair gel
- Looking at the above, do you spot anything? Look a little harder and you might realize that absolutely none of this involves sewing!
There is no need to sew a needle of thread. All these items can be found is his or her wardrobe or around the home. This is great news – not only does this make a gangster costume a great last minute option but it also makes it a very affordable one. Forget having to hit the shops for the key items – you can put this one together without needing to dip into your purse.
Next whip out the shoe polish and get those shoes as shiny as you possibly can. They should have a reflection that would impress an Army Major! Don’t let the little gangster get away with not putting in any effort into this outfit – this can be their job and will keep them busy for a least 15 minutes!
The hair needs to be tidy and gelled perfectly. Don’t just slap the product on – take some time to create the side parting and comb through the product to create a flat, smooth base. A temporary black hair dye would be perfect for this look but can be messy so feel free to skip this item!
Gold and plenty of it should be added as the second to last step. Gold rings and chains should be draped and adorned – it gives the impression of wealth and importance and will help give your little gangster that added bit of attitude!
The last step is to place that hat on the head and perhaps add a little tin foil to the teeth.
