Greaser from the 50s Costume
Time: 30 minutes
Effort: Quick and easy no sewing required
- Blue jeans
- White T-shirt
- Converse All-Stars or motorcycle boots
- Buddy Holly style glasses or sunglasses (optional)
Instructions: Dampen your child's hair and put the pomade in it. Try to comb it into a fifties- style hairdo. (If you're not sure about this, look at a picture of Bill Haley or Elvis.)
Have your child put on the jeans, the T-shirt, and shoes (or boots). Cuff the jeans about an inch or so. Stick the comb in his back pocket. Roll up the T-shirt sleeves so that they cuff.
Other details: Teach your child these expressions: "Hey, Daddy-o" or "Hey wanna race?" or "Wanna rumble?" Remind him to constantly check his hair with his hand or the comb.
