Mime Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Easy - no sewing required


  • Black and white striped shirt, or black turtleneck
  • Black jeans
  • White face paint
  • Black lip paint
  • Black French hat (beret)
  • White gloves
  • Black shoes
  • Black or white suspenders
  • Other face paint (optional)

Instructions: Put everything on, then paint whole face white and lips black.

Tips: Do not talk! Act like stuff is there when it really is not. Pretend to be inside a box, pulling a rope, etc. You could also make designs on face (such as a tear drop, or star). To be a French mime, put a black and white striped turtleneck on with a red scarf/bandana around neck. Also, to be a scary mime, apply fake blood to be a "dead mime."
