A really fun costume which is ideal for beach parties, summer fun, halloween, and fancy dress parties is a Baywatch costume. The Baywatch costume is one of the best costume ideas for couples as there is a male version and a female version.
Baywatch Costume – Woman’s Baywatch Costume
First we will look at the Baywatch costume for women which is based on CJ Parker, the character portrayed by sexy Pamela Anderson. This is an exceptionally easy costume to make yourself and therefore the perfect last minute costume idea.
|As you would expect this entire costume is made around the famous red swimsuit which Pamela Anderson and other female characters wore in the TV show.
You could buy a replica Baywatch swimsuit or buy a simple red swimsuit and apply the required logos yourself.
Baywatch Life Float
|Another must have item for this Baywatch fancy dress is the red lifeguard float that both female characters use in the show.
You could use a solid plastic lifeguard float or an inflatable one which could work out to be a cheaper option.
|If you have chosen a simple red swimsuit you will need a Baywatch logo to attach.
It is possible to buy Baywatch logos which can then be stitched to the left side of the stomach area of the swimsuit. This will complete your Pamela Anderson Baywatch swimsuit.
Baywatch Pamela Anderson Hair – Wig
|Blonde women will have no problems copying the hairstyle fo Pamela Anderson.
However, you can always buy and wear a long blonde haired wig to create the perfect Pamela Anderson style.
Baywatch Costume – Men’s Baywatch Costume
The male version of the Baywatch costume is based on the Mitch Buchannon character who is portrayed by David Hasselhoff. Like the female version of the Baywatch costume the male variant is exceptionally easy to make and therefore a great last minute costume idea for couples.
|The Mitch Buchannon costume is based largely around the shorts that the character is famous for wearing.
You could find a pair of replica Baywatch shorts or use a pair of red shorts and attach a Baywatch logo yourself.
Baywatch Life Float
|Just like the female version of this costume you will need a red lifeguard float.
You have the option of using a solid plastic lifeguard float or a cheaper inflatable lifeguard float specifically designed for fancy dress.
|Only the most body confident men will want to skip on the Baywatch jacket that Mitch Buchannon wears in the TV show.
It may prove difficult to find a replica jacket but like the shorts you could use a red jacket and add the Baywatch logos yourself.
|If you have chosen plain red shorts and a red jacket and need to apply the Baywatch logos yourself you will obviously need the logos.
You will need several Baywatch logos which need to be attached to the arms of the jacket and the chest. There is also a Baywatch logo on the left leg of the shorts.
|The final part of the male version of the Baywatch costume is optional. However, it is a really nice finishing touch to your Mitch Buchannon costume.
A pair of aviator sunglasses will look really cool. They can be worn or attached to a strap and worn around your neck.
