'The Prisoner' Costume

How about this:  a very obscure character from a weird and revered cult TV show from the 60s:  ThePrisoner: starringPatrickMcGoohan

This is a super cool and quick costume you can put easily together easily at the last minute.

Step 1: Stuff

All you need is a cheap black suit jacket.  I got this one at Goodwill for $7.  Some black or dark blue tennis shoes.  A dark blue tshirt.  And some white electrical tape.

Optional:  large white weather balloon.

Step 2: Trim the Shoes and the Jacket With the Tape

This character always wore the same getup in every episode:  a black suit with a particular white trim around the edging and the lapels.  black or blue deck shoes with white soles.  That is all there is to it, it doesn't get any easier.

Work the electrical tape around the lapel and all the edges of the coat.

Wrap electrical tape around the soles of the tennis shoes. 

And you're done.

Step 3: We Want INFORMATION!

Now practice your scowling. 

You are "Number 6".

Your costume is complete!

    Completely weird, yes. Points for knowing what it is and only 18.

    thanks, I never finished it. I got like 8 episodes in and was afflicted with too much "what the hell am I watching" to bother continuing. I should rewatch one day.

    Not every pop culture reference is funny or interesting to everyone I suppose.
