How to Make a Pilot Costume

Save

Becoming a pilot is a dream for many people, whether they are adults or children. When you are creating a costume for someone in your life, consider making a pilot costume. This costume is pretty easy to make and can be achieved with items you already own, or through a quick trip to a thrift store or costume shop. Whether you create a costume for a military pilot or a commercial pilot, it would be a great option for a Halloween party or another occasion.

Things You'll Need

  • White pants
  • Short-sleeved, white, button-down shirt
  • Black shoes
  • Black tie
  • Cardboard
  • Markers
  • Fabric tape
  • Pilot's hat
  • Aviator sunglasses
  • Wear white pants, a short-sleeved, white, button-down shirt and a pair of black shoes as the base layer of your pilot uniform.

  • Put on a black tie with the outfit.

  • Cut two rectangles from a piece of cardboard that are about 2 inches wide by 3 inches long. Use markers to draw stripes on the pieces of cardboard so they look like epaulets. Attach the epaulets to the shoulders of your shirt using fabric tape.

  • Purchase a pilot's hat from a local costume shop or online and wear it, along with a pair of aviator sunglasses, to complete the look.
