Gold coins can be used for multiple gold-themed costumes.

Gold is always an attention-grabbing color, especially when wearing gold from head to toe for a costume party or Halloween. Put together your own gold costume or browse online and in Halloween stores for gold outfits and accessories. Spray paint items gold if needed, and don't forget to cover yourself in gold glitter.

Browse Internet costume sites for gold lamé Elvis costumes. Costumes generally include gold satin pants and jacket with contrasting gold trim and sequins on the collar. Coat pockets and sleeve cuffs are also sequined and contrasting gold sequin strips are featured on the sides of each pant leg. Wear a black dress shirt underneath, and purchase a black Elvis wig or dye and style your own hair. Carry a microphone, which you can spray paint with gold if desired.
