The most difficult thing when making your own Uncle Sam costume will be painting the gun that you use. Here is a complete list of everything you need to make your own homemade Uncle Sam costume from The Purge.
Uncle Sam The Purge Mask
|One of the most essential items you will need to make your own Uncle Sam costume is a mask.
This mask is quite a scary looking thing. It is easy to replicate as there are many Uncle Sam masks available which are identical to what is seen in The Purge: Election Year.
Uncle Sam The Purge Suit
|Yet another essential item of clothing you will need to make your own Uncle Sam costume is an Uncle Sam suit.
These suits come in various shapes, sizes, and styles. However, you can easily find and buy an exact replica of the suit worn in The Purge: Election Year.
Uncle Sam The Purge Knife
|During the handful of scenes where Uncle Sam is seen in The Purge: Election Year he is seen holding a knife.
We would not recommend that you use a real knife to replicate this. Instead we would advise the use of a toy knife or a rubber training knife.
Uncle Sam The Purge Gun
|The gun of choice for the Uncle Sam character is an AK47 so this is what you will need to make your own Uncle Sam costume.
Like the knife, we would never recommend the use of a real gun. Instead we would advise using a toy gun or an airsoft gun.
Uncle Sam The Purge Gun Paint
|The most difficult part of making your own Uncle Sam costume is getting the colors on his gun correct.
His AK47 is pained with a USA flag over it.
If you can not find a toy or airsoft gun with this flag already painted on it you could always buy the paint and apply the USA flag yourself.
