Derek Zoolander: A Model Idiot?

I have spent the last decade trying to convince the family that we needed to create a Zoolander family halloween costume. And not just because the DZ's have the same initials - he and Aiden have been the spitting image of the iconic Derek and Hansel for as long as I could remember. This year we FINALLY did it and OMG it was worth the wait. Bonus: Nearly everything we used was from our closets!

We cast the entire family and some toys to play the parts of the quintessential characters of the cult classic film that still makes me LOL after 100's of views. Honestly, who can resist an ensemble cast filled with Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell and Jerry Stiller that can keep you laughing decades after the release? We even brought out hand model, J.P Pruitt to join in on the fun. 

So, grab some friends and have your favorite Zoolander quotes ready to go - It's a walk off!

How To Re-Create The Looks For Your Group Costume 

Hansel
For Hansel's Iconic Style we pulled out my suede fringe jacket, a printed shirt, skinny jeans and boots. Throw it on with a wig (or your natural hair) and a contemplative look and you're good to go!

Checklist: 
-Tan Fringe Jacket
- Printed Button Down
-Shell Necklace
-Blonde Wig
-Skinny Pants
-Boots

Mugatu
It was only natural that Indy dressed as Mugutu, he was born ready. We went for the iconic grey and black jumpsuit look from the movie but switched it to black and silver. I cut out little letters duct tape to create the MUGATU across the chest and made his hair from Halloween Decor 'Cobwebs' scrunched into place on a skinny headband. I taped a small piece to his chin for the goatee. 

Checklist: 
-Black Turtleneck
-Silver Corset
-Black Pants
-Black Boots
-White Sunglasses
-Silver Duct Tape Cut into M-U-G-A-T-U
- Headband 
- Halloween Cobwebs For Hair (or Wig)

J.P Pruitt
Honestly have you seen a J.P Pruitt costume yet? Chances are that's a no, which is why we had to include him and his homemade hyperbaric chamber, because after all - he is the world's greatest hand model. We made our own DIY hyperbaric chamber by cutting the top off a 1-liter bottle and adding some duct tape details. Finished with a 5 o'clock shadow, glasses and shaggy hair. 

Checklist: 
 Jacket
Loose Button Down Shirt 
Ripped Pants 
Plastic 1-Liter Bottle
Duct Tape 
Glasses

Matilda Jeffries
Indy's "Elsa" doll swapped her gown for a homemade tweed dress from scrap fabric resembling investigatory journalist, Matilda Jeffries "Cheryl Ladd collection from JcPenney" outfit. 

Checklist: 
Grey suit
Glasses 
Blonde Wing
Heels
Pencil
Pad

Kiva, Mugatu's Dog
Like Matilda, we tapped Indy's 'friends' to help lend a hand. This time we opted for a small stuffed light colored dog with black scrap fabric and duct tape with an M across the front. 

Checklist:
Black onesie or scrap fabric
duct tape "M"

Derek Zoolander 
Derek was easily the hardest of the bunch because there's so many good costume choices so we narrowed it down to "DERLICTE - MAGNUM" scene. A black leather blazer, black trash bags, a black shirt and leather pants with the black and silvery makeup was a clear win. We didn't have the best shoe options so we opted for snow boots and somehow it worked. 

Checklist: 
Black Leather or Shiny Jacket 
Black Trash Bags
Black Shirt
Leather or Shiny Pants 
Snow Boots
Black Wig
Black and Silver Eye Makeup

Maury Ballstein 
And last but certainly not least, Maury Ballstein. Literally the only costume I had to order because I some how don't have a velour tracksuit in my closet (that has now changed). I threw it on over a faux fur vest turned backward (gotta have that chest hair), added some gold chains, oversized glasses, a penciled on mustache and big teased back hair to make him come to life. If Mugatu weren't my favorite, Ballstein would be!

Checklist: 
Velour Tracksuit
Oversized Lightly Tinted Sunglasses
Pencil Mustache
Gold Chains
Faux Fur Vest
