This blurred lines group costume makes for the perfect Halloween costume: sexy + topical. You can make each costume in a matter of hours.  I've provided printable patterns in PDF form. The patterns are for a size 2-4, but you can adjust them to fit your size. I will explain how in this Instructable.

There are many ways bring this music video to life. Some other costume ideas include:
  • Couples Costume: Robin Thicke + Model
  • 6 Person Group Costume: The whole cast of the video
  • Mens Group: all the men from the video
Special thanks to Amanda and Brie for helping model the costumes!!!!!

Step 1: Plastic Outfit Materials

In the next step I will go into details on what you specifically need for each costume. This step is just general materials for making the plastic outfits.

(note: this is the amount of material needed to make all 3 costumes)
  • 3 yards of 12 gauge clear vinyl fabric - you can find this at most fabric stores. It usually comes in rolls and is used for covering tables.
  • 1/2 yard of twill tape + 5 large safety pins (only needed for 1 of the costumes - see next step)
  • 1 long white zipper with metal teeth (only needed for 1 of the costumes - see next step)
  • hand sewing needle
  • white sewing thread
  • printer + printer paper for printing patterns
Questionable video? Lets try the lyrics: <br> <br> <br>One thing I ask of you <br>Let me be the one you back that ass to <br>Go, from Malibu, to Paris, boo <br>Yeah, I had a bitch, but she ain't bad as you <br>So hit me up when you passing through <br>I'LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING BIG ENOUGH TO TEAR YOUR ASS IN TWO <br> <br>And theres: <br> <br>Shake the vibe, get down, get up <br>DO IT LIKE IT HURT, LIKE IT HURT <br>WHAT YOU DON'T LIKE WORK? <br> <br>And: <br> <br>NOT MANY WOMEN CAN REFUSE THIS PIMPIN' <br>I'M A NICE GUY, BUT DON'T GET IT IF YOU GET WITH ME <br> <br> <br>Woman are serviceable products for mens pleasure, thats what this video/song is about. Should remember this when I leave the house and my son see's it so he knows how society agrees that its fair to treat women? <br> <br>Astonishingly the author is Instructables staff, its sad when normally Instructables is such a positive influence. <br> <br> <br> <br>
I agree with the above comment. With Blurred Lines being of a questionable nature, does the author really think this a suitable matter for making an instructable?
'We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive' - instructables <br> <br>I agree with the above, how could I not, this is the positive world of instructables but the sexist nature of the Blurred Lines video only has me guessing that we will soon see a Miley Cyrus instructables halloween outfit? <br> <br>For the benefit of men and women, society at large, instructables please remove this project.
The didn't wear clothes in blurred lines, the costume just requires being naked
Whew! Is it hot in here, or is it just... you? ;) ITA on the hair, too.
VERY COOL!!! In other news, I LOVE YOUR NEW HAIRDO, CARLEY!!!! :-)
