Snap into a Slim Jim Costume!
by Tom Postl
I got the idea for my costume after watching WWF Classics. As a kid we grew up with WWF Superstars, had pay per view parties, even wet to a few live shows...I decided I would try my hand at making a costume this year for cost reasons didn’t want to buy a store-bought one.
I ended up going to the thrift stores in the area and put it together in about a month. I used a lot of paint and hot glue gun for the fringes, grew my own beard and dyed it black for the costume! Borrowed the boots from a friend.
The jacket was originally purple, black and orange, but it was an exact match for the outfit. Did a hand-painted job on it and am very happy with the outcome of the whole thing together.
My family has a Halloween party every year with contests, drawings, food and fun. This year it was on October 23 and this costume was a huge hit!
I am really looking forward to being out on the town for Halloween weekend!
