How to Make a Dexter Costume

Save

"Dexter" is a Showtime TV show about Dexter Morgan, a serial killer who works for the Miami-Dade Police Department. At a young age he witnessed his mother's murder, and after that developed a blood lust. His adoptive father taught him to kill only those who deserve it. If you are planning to dress up as Dexter for Halloween or for a costume party, you can use items you probably have around the house to create either his "kill" outfit or his everyday look.

Things You'll Need

  • Thermal shirt
  • Khaki cargo pants
  • Silver watch
  • Lear driving gloves
  • Black socks
  • Black boots
  • Black rubber apron
  • Garbage bag
  • Newspaper
  • Fake knives
  • Red paint
  • Dress shirt
  • Khaki pants
  • Loafers
  • Work badge
  • Silver metal briefcase

"Kill" Costume

  • Wear a dark khaki thermal shirt with Henley-style buttons. Leave the top two to three buttons undone.

  • Wear matching green khaki cargo pants. If possible, choose a pair with only one cargo pocket on the left leg.

  • Add a silver watch on your left wrist and a pair of black leather driving gloves.

  • Wear black socks and black work boots to complete the general look.

  • Add accessories. There are a number of accessories you can choose to complete the look. A black rubber apron is one option. Another is a garbage bag. Fill the bag with newspaper or rags to give it shape. You could also carry fake knives with red paint on them to create a bloody look.

Work and Casual Costume

  • Wear a long-sleeve dress shirt in a light or pastel color. Leave the shirt untucked and roll the sleeves up past your elbows. Leave the top two buttons undone.

  • Wear a casual pair of light khaki pants.

  • Wear a pair of light colored loafers.

  • Add accessories. The same silver watch on the left wrist can be worn with the work and casual outfits. Add a work badge by making a laminated card with "Dexter Morgan" on it. Carry a silver metal briefcase to represent his blood kit.
