How to Make a Pilot Costume

Updated November 21, 2016

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.

  1. Wear white trousers, a short-sleeved, white, button-down shirt and a pair of black shoes as the base layer of your pilot uniform.

  2. Put on a black tie with the outfit.

  3. 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 epaulettes. Attach the epaulettes to the shoulders of your shirt using fabric tape.

  4. 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.
