Homemade Indiana Jones costume

Filed Under: kids, miscellaneous

Harrison Ford as Indiana JonesThere's no doubt about it: Indiana Jones is cool. After waiting almost twenty years for the fourth installment of the Indy series, the buzz is beyond buzzing. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, although it is not my favorite of the series, has every ingredient you have come to expect and love about an Indy movie.

So what's this got to do with DIY-ing? You can capitalize on all the movie hype and make your own Indiana Jones costume. Will you be perceived as cool, too? With lots of leather items and some electrical tape, how could you be anything but?

You'll need brown and black electrical tape, rope, a light brown and a dark brown leather belt, jeans, a fedora, and just a few minutes of your time. There are details about how to make a Indy-style shoulder bag and a whip using rope and electrical tape. Add a few key clothing items and your costume is complete.

So wear it to the movie, don that costume on Halloween, or just put on those duds and venture to the grocery store. You'll be Indy-cool, and that much cooler because you made it yourself.
