Our group was pretty tall so we thought Globe-Trotters would be perfect. Not to mention we had two college basketball players in our group. Can you guess who?
We started at sports authority and found red shorts, tall white socks, blue t-shirts, wrist and head bands. We cut our shirts to make them look more like jerseys. We couldn’t find the striped tube socks so we made our own out of blue and red sports tape. We also bought thicker white athletic tape to create our shorts.
Finally we went to Michael’s to get iron on transfers. We created our design on the computer and printed to these fancy iron-on sheets both front and back. The guys supplied their own wigs (which we lost during the night). Our costume probably cost about $20-$30 a piece. Biggest costs was the athletic shorts.
Needless to say, everybody loved our costumes and made way for the Globetrotters on the dance floor. We even had a team ball!
