As it is Halloween season I thought I would have some fun and share a costume DIY with you. This week I am doing a DIY Bob Ross Halloween costume. This year I have become a bit obsessed with watching Bob Ross videos on YouTube, I find them so relaxing to watch and it always makes me want to pick up and brush and do some landscape painting. For my DIY Bob Ross costume, I actually copied one of his paintings and I am pretty impressed with how it turned out. I hope you get a giggle from this video as I had a lot of fun creating it.
My Outfit And Props
I picked up a size small man’s chambray shirt and some vintage style jeans for my outfit. Bob always had a spotless shirt on when he was painting and I don’t know how he didn’t get paint all over his shirt. You could pick up these items easy enough I a second-hand/thrift shop or borrow from a friend. I picked up my wig from The Silly Shop on Liffey St in Dublin. I wanted to make sure I got a wig that had a ginger hue to it and not a black wig. My wig is by the brand Smiffy’s and you can get it on Amazon. I then picked up my moustache from the party shop out in Liffey Valley but here is a similar one from Amazon if you cannot find one locally.
I attempted to paint my own Bob Ross painting and use it as one of my props. I followed the video below to paint my picture. I had an art set that I picked up in Lidl back in Summer. It wasn’t the best set to use but I think I did pretty good considering. You can then use your paint palette and some brushes as props for your costume.
I hope you enjoyed my video this week and got a giggle from it. I actually found painting so much fun and I think I will have a try at it again but with the proper paints.
