Please note: this costume is "50 Shades of Grey," not "Fifty Shades of Grey."
My husband wanted a simple costume for Halloween. This is what we came up with. Neither of us has read the book "Fifty Shades of Grey." While this makes it difficult to build a costume around the characters, we decided to interpret the title more literally and made a "50 Shades of Grey" costume.
Step 1: Supplies
This will produce one t-shirt with roughly painted blocks of color in fifty different shades of grey.

Names for 50 types of grey (find my list in Step 6)
