The Greatest Showman is one of those movies that you either love or obsessively fan boy and girl over. There is literally a character for everyone to identify with in some way. Whether you’re a larger than life innovator like Phineas Taylor Barnum, or a soulful singer with pipes to match like Lettie Lutz, we’ve got the costumes to help you prove it. But why put on a cookie cutter circus costume to emulate such a unique, fun cast of characters? No. Celebrate the birth of show business with a Do It Yourself version of your favorite Barnum & Bailey attractions!
Creating the greatest show on earth is no easy feat, which is why we put together this list of 5 DIY pieces to get you started. The only question left to ask is are you ready to change the world this Halloween?
The Greatest Showman (P.T Barnum)
Becoming P.T Barnum for Halloween is a great way to show off your showmanship. But where do you start? Well, you’ve come to the right place because we have everything you need to make the transformation. First and foremost, our Men’s Standard Ringmaster Costume serves as a great base costume, but if you’re looking for a bit more swag, try the Men’s Ringmaster Adult Plus Costume. Add a pair of black Super Hero Boots, a Durashape Top Hat and a Black Parade Cane and voila, you’re ready to run your very own circus.
The Greatest Show (Wo)man (P.T Barnum)
Ladies, if you feel more like a P.T than a Charity Barnum, then this section is for you. Show off your innovation and become the greatest show-woman ever with our Sexy Seductive Circus Leader costume at the helm. Then again, you may be a fan of a more layered look. That’s where our Elite Women’s Sexy Big Top Tease Ring Master costume comes into play. A pair of Black Mid-calf boots complement either version, but it’s our Gold Gogo Boots that bring the razzle-dazzle. Cap off the costume with a Wool Felt Top Hat and Black Parade Cane.
Maybe leading isn’t your thing. Maybe you’d rather grab your bestie and go out as an ensemble this Halloween. Our DIY Albino Twins pieces are perfect for such ambitions. Start with our Angel Costume for Women, add a pair of White Lace Gloves, a White Hot Wig, and White Gogo Boots. Lastly, check out our Festive Value Makeup Kit to add the finishing touches and take your next Halloween party by storm.
Bearded Lady (Lettie Lutz)
A Lettie Lutz costume is bound to have friends and family singing your praises this Halloween. Make sure your outfit hits every note with our Women’s Dance Hall Mistress dress as the costume centerpiece. Next, get Lettie’s curly locks with our Sexy Pirate Costume Wig or Curly Character Wig. A pair of Women’s Brown Boots will have you strutting your stuff but the piece di resistance, a 14 Inch Brown Beard and Moustache, will stop party goers in their tracks the moment you arrive.
Who’s a good boy? If you’re ready to find out this Halloween, then we’ve got you covered with our DIY Dogboy costume. Start with Wolf Gloves, add Custom Fit Werewolf Teeth, and Werewolf Character Make-up. A Ring Leader Costume will only help to solidify the look.
So there you have it. Few costumes tend to fall into weird absurdity as seamlessly as these do, making them the perfect choices to stand out on a day when everyone is dressed to impress, scare, or share a few laughs. So, what are you waiting for? Choose your favorite, or get the whole family involved and put on the Greatest Show on Earth this Halloween!
