Michael Jackson Costume Pieces

Creating your own Michael Jackson costume and finding all the pieces and props in time for your Halloween party is part of the thrill of constructing your own masterpiece. It's also the only way to get lots of compliments and win contests! And you can bet there will be plenty of Michael Jackson costumes out there this trick or treat season!

Going as the "king of pop" is a great way to pay tribute and it's also a fun costume to make. Over the decades, MJ had a handful of very recognizable dress themes for particular albums, songs or videos. You need only find a good picture, easily done by Googling in Michael Jackson and the name of the song. The attire consists mostly of a shirt, pants, shoes, hair style, hat and vest. Give or take, depending on the look.

Here's a good tip that's often overlooked. Take a good look at his face! His eyes and brows in particular, and even the lips. By adding the eyeliner and shaping the brows like his, you really add a subtle and recognizable feature to your costume! Be sure to darken or lighten your skin accordingly, depending on the photo or time period. The hair is another thing that changes between albums and videos so be sure to pay attention to that.

The best place to start looking is your local thrift store. You should be able to find a few pieces of costume clothing or props there for very cheap! But finding your entire costume there will be difficult, especially as Halloween approcaches. The next best place is eBay. You will surely find a good selection there and more variety in sizes for shirts, pants and vests. There will likely be more choices in women's clothing too.
