My buddies and I wanted to do a group costume so we decided to be the Jamaican Bobsled team from the movie, Cool Runnings. All you need are a pair of black tights (can be two piece, long sleeve compression shirt and compression pants), yellow/gold beanie and some green, yellow and brown paint. The most time consuming part of the project is painting the top of the tights. If you watch the movie you can see the design that they have on their uniforms and you can mimic the design. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just make sure that all 4 people involved have the same design.
After the tights are painted you are almost ready to go. All you need to do is paint your faces with the brown paint. In order to take this costume to the next level, make a bobsled out of cardboard and paint it with the Jamaican flag on the front. This way you can carry the bobsled around together and it really brings unity to your costume. Memorize some of the songs they sing from the movie and be sure to have an egg for your buddy who is dressing up as Sanka. In the movie, Sanka is always pulling out his lucky egg. It is just a fun prop to have. We ended up winning the costume contest at work with this. Best group costume!!
