DIY Fashion: ThreadBanger

Video Demo: Frugal Halloween Costumes | How to Make a Michael Jackson Costume

Compiled by Vicki McClure Davidson

This DIY Michael Jackson Halloween costume not only looks amazing, but is relatively cheap to make, believe it or not.

ThreadBanger's Rob uses some crafty DIY ingenuity, pays attention to the MJ accessory details, uses some easy, basic sewing skills, and of course, the obligatory trip to his local Goodwill to buy a few pieces of used clothing to recycle and restyle into a "gee, that looks really expensive!" Michael Jackson costume for Halloween.

And, what Michael Jackson costume would be complete without the famous sequined glove? Rob shows how you can make a great-looking, sparkly glove easily and frugally.

See how Rob pulls this off creating this unique costume in the ThreadBanger video below.

To view ThreadBanger's embedded YouTube video without its Google ads at the bottom, click the button with the X in the lower right corner (it appears shortly after the video starts to play). However, please view the ads at least once all the way through so that the sponsors are happy and ThreadBanger earns a tiny bit of revenue. Since you'll likely watch this how-to video a couple of times, watching it at least once with the displayed ads, and clicking any of them that are intriguing to you, should be no hardship.
