Dressing up as a celebrity can be an entertaining costume choice for Halloween or any other dress-up occasion. Using your natural features will make the costume much easier to pull off. If you're a tall, skinny guy, there are a variety of celebrities to choose from as your inspiration.
Use your height to your advantage and dress up as your favorite basketball star. Since most popular NBA players, past or present, exceed 6-feet tall, with some pushing 7-feet, you'll be able to pull of this costume. If you're fair skinned with light hair, honor Larry Bird by dressing up as him. You'll have to be willing to bare your legs in a pair of short, vintage basketball shorts. Finding a costume for current players, such as Kevin Garnett, might be easier, as you can find players' jerseys in many sporting goods stores.
Radio shock-jock Howard Stern measures in at 6 feet, 5 inches tall, and if you're a fan, dressing up as Stern can be a suitable costume idea. Stop by a costume shop and pick up a black, curly-haired wig that hits slightly above your shoulder. You can trim a longer wig if necessary. Wear wire-rimmed sunglasses, and dress casual in jeans and a long-sleeved T-shirt. Wear a pair of headphones to complete your look.
Movie legend Clint Eastwood is a healthy 6 feet, 4 inches tall, and his decades-long movie resume gives you many costume choices. Pick your favorite Eastwood character to use as inspiration for your costume. A classic Eastwood look is a cowboy, which he portrayed as his character Rowdy Yates in the television series "Rawhide." Find some cowboy boots, jeans, a flannel shirt and a cowboy hat, and you can resemble Eastwood's many famous cowboy characters.
Show off your athletic prowess by suiting up as five-time Olympian Carl Lewis. Measuring 6 feet, 3 inches tall, Lewis is best known for the nine gold medals he brought home for the U.S. from 1984 to 1996. Put on your running shoes and pair them with a red, white and blue track uniform. You can pair red jogging shorts with a blue tank top with U.S.A. written on it. Wear plenty of faux gold medals to honor Lewis' accomplishments.
