Indiana Jones and Henry Jones

The perfect father-son duo and perfect for any best friend Halloween costumes. An old leather jacket, hat and a homemade whip and Indie is a go-go. As for Jones senior, have a look in your dad’s wardrobe for a Tweed suit.

Another plentiful supply of hair gel, a suit and a pair of black framed glasses. The final touch is a cheap Superman t-shirt underneath the getup.
