Fred Flintstone Costume – The Flintstones
Making your own Fred Flintstone costume is relatively simple. This makes it a brilliant last minute costume idea for halloween or fancy dress parties. Here is a complete list of everything you will need to make your own homemade Fred Flintstone costume.
Fred Flintstone Top
|The first and most important item of clothing you will need to make this costume is Fred’s dress style top.
You may be able to find a replica of this but you always have the option of buying a sheet of animal print fabric and making your own. This is done easily by cutting the hole for your head and simply stitching up the sides leaving holes for your arms.
Fred Flintstone Necktie
|While Fred wears a necktie you will find a normal blue necktie may not look that good as part of your Fred Flintstone fancy dress.
The easiest and best way to replicate his necktie is to use a wide strip of fabric with a jagged edge or a simple blue scarf. This can then be tied around your neck like a normal necktie.
Fred Flintstone Mask
|If you are really wanting to make your Fred Flintstone fancy dress look amazing you could buy and wear a mask.
These masks are readily available and are usually based on the animated version of The Flintstones.
