First off, this costume could be bought in a complete set. But if you want to give it a truly home-made feel, you can actually create this costume in the comforts of your own home. But know that redemption is waiting for you just in case you throw your arms in defeat.
Dee Snider is the front man of the rock band Twisted Sister. Back in the 80’s the band was a big hit and so was his costume. A company even made official costumes of him for Halloween.
Here are the tips on how to make a Dee Snider costume:
Dee’s hair was so big, blonde and curly. His hair is an important part of the costume because it is one of his many signature looks. You will need a wig for this one unless you already have very long hair then the only thing you should do is perm it. Although it would be very advisable to just get a Dee Snider wig.
For Dee costume, rummage your closet for a black shirt. Then cut the sleeves of the shirt horizontally into strips so that it would hang loose as fringes. Next, cut the bottom of the shirt so your stomach would be exposed and then get black suspenders with the ‘X’ in front. Also, get football pads and sew it on the shoulders of the shirt, and get a lot of hot pink cloth cut in strips and sew it on the football pads as well as on your tight fitting black pants.
For the make-up, which is also one of this signature looks, get electric blue eye-shadow, black eyeliners, and bright pink lipstick. You would also need to draw brows, and a trapezoid-shaped pink blush-on for the cheeks. Also, get a bright pink nail polish.
For the accessories, get black fingerless gloves and sew hot pink cloth strips in there as well.
And there, with all the hard work you have just made yourself a Dee Snider costume. It’s not so hard, is it? Now the next thing you have to do is to put on a rocker attitude and enjoy the rest of the night.
