Bad Santa Costume – Bad Santa
Making a Bad Santa costume is as simple as using a Santa suit alongside a white t-shirt, a fake cigarette and a hip flask, with or without the liquor and a handful of other items. Here is a complete list of what you will need to make your own Bad Santa costume.
Bad Santa Suit
|As you would expect the first and most essential part of any Bad Santa costume is the Santa suit.
There is no hard and fast rule regarding anything specific regarding the Santa suit that should be used.
There are plenty of Santa suits available to buy that can be used.
Bad Santa T-Shirt
|When making this costume the end result could very easily be confused with a simple Santa costume.
To combat this you will wear a white t-shirt and leave the jacket of your Santa suit open so that you look slightly slobbish just like Bad Santa in the movie.
Bad Santa Suspenders
|In the scenes where Bad Santa takes off his jacket in the movie he is seen to be wearing red suspenders attached to his pants.
Not only will a pair of suspenders be a nice touch to your Bad Santa costume they will also help in holding up your pants at your fancy dress party.
Bad Santa Cigarette
|There is no getting away from the fact Bad Santa smokes cigarettes.
As you would imagine using a real cigarette is probably not an option due to laws regarding smoking indoors.
For this reason the best substitute is to use a fake cigarette.
Bad Santa Hip Flask
|Not only does Bad Santa smoke he also drinks. Of course this is probably a good thing if you are attending a festive fancy dress party.
You have to choices when it comes to making sure that people you are wearing a Bad Santa costume over a regular Santa costume. A bottle of liquor or a hip flask.
Bad Santa Watch
|Eagle eye fans of the Bad Santa movie will have spotted that Bad Santa wears a silver wristwatch.
A silver wristwatch is in no way essential to a Bad Santa costume but it is a really nice finishing touch to the costume or cosplay.
Bad Santa Gray Hair Spray
|Bad Santa has gray hair and facial hair.
If you have gray hair then this is easy to get right. If not there is the very simple option of growing a little stubble and using gray hairspray to color your hair and beard gray.
This will be the final touch to your Bad Santa costume.
