Larger Size Costumes

Hi

I'm looking for something for the larger gent for halloween.
I'm 6ft 4" so a lot of them seem too short as I'm more like a 34" inside leg and around 40" waist.

It doesn't have to be just a halloween costume anything will do really.

Any suggestions?

Hey,

What about Frankenstein? You could get a really old suit (possibly from a second hand shop) and fray the ends of the trousers.

A bit of white & black face paint and something to look like screws for the neck.

I'm 6'3" and I went as Worsel Gumedge last year. Got some old gear from a charity shop for less than €20, a bag of bedding straw from a pet shop €2 and was pretty much set.

Going as an Uumpa Lumpa this year with a mate thats 6'5"!!

Good luck

X-Large would suit you. The legs, at 32" may be a bit small, but everything else should suit you. 6 foot 6 myself, leg @ 34" usually, but getting a 32" X-Large pimp costume from TheCostumeShop.ie

Hoping it won't be too short.

Hi couerdelion,

Yeah its something that totally amazes me the lack of thought our suppliers give to tall people. It's something i going to work on next year to have a better range.

I would suggest something that either you can wear your own trousers with (ie black trousers) or something such as Zeus (below) that doesnt require trousers so height isnt a factor:

@the_syco let me know how if the costume suits you, should be with you today, if it doesnt you can always sent it back for a refund.

Fits nicely. The 32" fits a 34" inside leg

Forgot to order the Aviator Glasses, though Would have completed the look. Meh. Will pop into town tomorrow evening and see if I can grab one in Dublin.
