For forethought, a complete set of this costume is available online. But since you already bothered to check this out, don’t hesitate to read on further to learn how to create your own Dee Snider costume. It is a bit complicated compared to other 80’s inspired costumes, but you should know that it would be worth your time.
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 unique costume. One company even made official Dee Snider costumes for Halloween.
But if you want to make your own, here are the tips:
Hair – Dee’s hair was bigger than a typical 80’s woman. It was very curly and blond. Make sure to check out photos of him and follow the hair because it was one of his many signature looks. Unless you have long hair that you would just perm, you have to get a wig styled the same as Dee’s.
Outfit – First, get a black shirt. Cut the sleeves of the shirt to horizontal strips so that it would hang loose as fringes over your arm. Cut, the bottom of the shirt so that your abdomen is exposed and get black suspender with the ‘X’ facing upfront. After that, get football pads to sew on the shoulders of your shirt. To design your Dee Snider top, cut strips of a hot pink cloth and sew it on the football pads. Second, get tight fitting black pants. Sew more hot pink cloth strips on it.
Make-up – His make-up was very popular because it was as unique as his outfit so make sure that you do it right. Wear thick electric blue eye-shadow, black eyeliners, and bright pink lipstick. Draw thick brows, and a pink trapezoid-shaped blush-on for the cheeks.
Accessories – You will need black fingerless gloves with hot pink cloth strips sewn on it. Also, wear bright pink nail polish.
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.
