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