DIY Halloween Costume Series - The Dude

Hipster, Trucker, Homeless Guy, Uncle Ted; you can call this whatever you want.

I make fun of hipsters a lot but it's only because of their trendiness that it's just too easy to avoid. In fact, I'm probably a little bit hipster myself although I'll deny it till I die. The real truth is I'm just jealous that I can't grow a beard that thick.

Disclaimer: This is the worst fake beard anyone has every done.

Gather supplies; trucker hat, old tee, flannel, costume hair or any sort of thing that will work for a beard unless you can grow a full lustrous beard then you're set.
all thrifted except the costume hair

 I love that I found this. It's perfect.

The beard gives me the creeps, just a little bit.

By the way, I left an award for you on my blog: http://www.thedailysnapshot.org/

Deanna - I don't doubt that you did ;)

Kendahl - sorry, for once I wasn't going for creepy but the beard is so bad I think it made it that way.

Charlotte - Thanks so much for the award you rock!!

Love it! Although I've never seen a trucker with such fantastic eyelashes.
