The BEST COSTUME idea of the Year!
It took me over a week to collect, get supplies and make all these "gangnam costume" pieces and props. It took over a week to film all this and another week to edit it!ha ha ha ha
I hope you guys love all the costume DIY and that it makes you laugh!
AND HERE's some links to help you GET YOUR GANGNAM GLAM ON:
For Psy's sleek, black hair I used:
Temporary Hair Color Gel that totally holds your hair in place, whether gangnam sleek or into spikes, and it washes completely out- we even used it on lil' Ellie's hair, it's kid friendly!
For the yellow "gangnam" guy-
I just got a cheap wig from the costume store that had bangs (or fringe)
Psy has amazing skin, so if you want to get his very even, perfect, no traces of redness skin, you can slap some foundation and concealer on.
Psy has really light eyebrows, so I made sure I coated my brows with extra concealer to lighten them!
Then dust entire face with powder.
WHERE TO GET YOUR GANGNAM FASHION:
I tried my chances at the thrift store and online too!
ORDER A GANGNAM COSTUME JACKET and it comes with a bow tie from:
www.gogangnam.com (they come in blue and green, he's worn both colors, but I like blue)
The yellow jacket and pants.
The black gangnam jacket and pants.
The Gangnam Bowtie.
The white and black Gangnam jacket.
I even got a white tie and show how to cut and pin it to resemble un un-tied bow tie!
*you could just paint the black trim on a blue jacket if you can find one too, or just order the jacket online above! ha ha ha ha
I just got some cheap men's dress shoes and painted them with 2 coats white acrylic paint.
The famous glasses:
I got 2 pairs.
The black pair from the thrift store.
The tortoise shell from a costume store.
I painted the sides gold with Sharpie pens.
PS. My mom who is a good artist, drew the horses on to foam board and I carefully cut them out with a knife and taped them to yard sticks! ha ha ha (thanks mom!)
Heyyyyyyyyy get, get readaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!
