How to Create a D.J. Tanner Costume


DJ Tanner, played by Candace Cameron, was the oldest Tanner sister on the family-friendly prime time sitcom "Full House," which ran from 1987 to 1995. She served as big sister to younger siblings Stephanie and Michelle, was popular in school, and had a great academic standing. She would be a great Halloween or retro party costume choice for any girl who wants to revive that late 80's TV land nostalgia.

Things You'll Need

  • Full House DVD
  • Hair spray
  • Long blond wig (if your hair is not long and blond)
  • Blue shirt or sweater
  • Blue jean skirt
  • Socks
  • Sneakers
  • Walkman
  • Watch on DVD whatever season of the show corresponds with the DJ you want to represent for some added tips on mannerisms and quotes. The age that you play DJ can vary. You can play her very young or as a high school graduate. She went from around age 10 to age 18 on the series.

  • Get a long, dirty blonde wig. Brush each side of the hair out, and spray it with hairspray so that it stays flared and feathered on each side.

  • Choose a stylish sweater with an 80's feel. It could be like the deep blue one that DJ got on Valentine's Day or just one with a lot of bright colors and patterns.

  • Pick a cute blue jean skirt. Faded is best, but any blue jean skirt will do. DJ wore these mostly in earlier episodes.

  • Wear a pair of cute colorful sneakers with socks that match your outfit. DJ was coordinated when it came to fashion.

  • Bring along an old school Walkman. DJ was often seen singing along to pop music, so make sure you've got your tunes ready when you play her.

  • Talk a lot about cute boys, your love of family, your boyfriend Steve, being a big sister, and music. DJ had many interests, but those are the most easily identifiable.

Tips & Warnings

  • Have your little sisters plays Michelle and Stephanie, if you have any.
