Faux leather costumes

Published by at 4:33 pm under Costumes

Faux leather Halloween costumes are incredibly popular among both men and women, whether you are a woman looking for a seductive and somewhat naughty costume or a man looking for an edgy costume.  Popular women’s costumes include “biker babe” costumes, dominatrix costumes, superhero costumes—including Catwoman and Batgirl, and pop star costumes, like red Britney Spears “Oops I Did It Again” jumpsuits and Lady Gaga costumes.

Although faux leather jumpsuits can be unforgiving, they are a look that ensure that you will stand out from the other Gaga costumes at a Halloween party, which are frequently reproductions of the blue monokini from the “Poker Face” video.  Lady Gaga has a wide variety of leather looks, which can also be reproduced infor a shinier look and more stretch, which can be valuable if you are a less experienced seamstress or are unsure about sizing for an outfit with little stretch.

One of the most fabulous faux leather costumes for men in a KISS costume, which takes a skilled seamstress to complete.  Although it can be intimidating at first, the key is to take it step by step.  Start by making black lycra pants with a comfortable elastic waist; next create a faux leatherV-shaped vest that goes on like a women’s one-piece bathing suit.

From there, it is all about the accessories: create a scalloped cape and use the scraps to create armband to attach the cape to and kickpads to over the boots, which simplifies the process of finding dramatic boots by simply covering tennis shoes with leather that attaches with elastic under the shoe.  Using a large grommet machine, attach silver grommets on the cape, vest, and boots.  Although it is a bit more involved than your traditional Halloween costume, a good KISS costume runs close to $500, so it saves you a great deal of money in the long-run and ensures that it is customized and tailored to your specific desires.
