Whether you're dressing up for Halloween or a costume party, wearing a sexy costume is one way to get noticed. While buying these costumes is expensive, you can usually make your own without too much trouble. If you want to put together a sexy prisoner look, all you need is a basic jumpsuit, scissors and your imagination to really capture people's attention.
Things You'll Need
- Jumpsuit or sweat suit
- Black tape
Find a jumpsuit that fits you well. For women it should fit tightly around the legs and butt, preferably showing off the bust. If you have a sweatsuit or a one-piece jumpsuit, a zipper down the front is always helpful. Choose your color carefully: white or orange works for a more modern prisoner, but gray or off-white works for more traditional prisoners.
Cut off enough of the legs and arms to add to the sexy look. If you feel comfortable with just showing off your calves then don't cut higher, but if you want to show off the entire leg feel free to go even higher. The same is true for the arms: the more skin you're comfortable showing, the more you should cut off.
Decorate your jumpsuit with strips of black tape. If you want to go for the classic, jailbird look, make horizontal stripes all around the suit. If you prefer a more modern prisoner look, write "Department of Corrections" on the back of the jumpsuit and a number on the front left breast.
Add in costume accessories. A pair of heavy boots (or heels if you want to keep it sexy), some fake tattoos, a cigarette behind the ear or anything associated with prison culture can give you a little more oomph.
