Intro: Last Minute Costume Idea: French Kiss Mime
Ah, the mime. The most non-verbal clown that performs without a single word. Now, you can give it a rock n roll twist with this last minute costume idea using items that you might already have in your closet!
Step 1: Basic Outfit
To start, I began with a black & white striped shirt and black leggings. These make the base for your classic mime costume!
Step 2: Shoes and Accessories
Now, for accessories, you can use the following:
- red or black sneakers
- a red neckscarf
- a black beret or newsboy cap
- white gloves
Most of these accessories were all found inside my closet...well, except for the white gloves which were bought from the Dollar Store.
Step 3: Make-Up
Finally, of course, a mime can't go out with this classic make-up. So, I gave it a rock n roll spin with a design inspired by KISS. Today, I did Paul Stanley's Starchild, but you can choose whichever other KISS bandmate you like!
Step 4: Done!
Now, get ready to rock n roll all night! Clearly, last minute costumes, like this one, allow you to get a little more creative, even if you can't afford a highly expensive piece. This French mime, for example, is one of them. The costume takes no more than 10 minutes to put together (including, if not including make-up), and it's a great way to add a fun twist to an otherwise tried and true ensemble!
