Begin With the Basic Clothing
Redneck costume ideas aren't only fun to portray but easy to make.Your standard outfit begins with your denim! Be them overalls, jeans or the ever popular short shorts. Rip and dirty them up!
The white wifebeater is the standard but you can also wear a plaid shirt either on its own or with the wifebeater. Sleeves are optional of course! You can mix and match with a puffy vest.Your final basic costume piece is the footwear. Ratty sneakers are fine but the hunting boot really screams redneck.
Hair Makes the Costume
Short on the top; long in the back is the standard style of the redneck. This is known as the mullet of course. An 80's staple that was horrendous at best but nicely feathered and worn by many the glam rocker. No redneck costume is complete without one. There are plenty of wigs you can purchase but if you have the length to pull it off why not style your hair for real?
Dental Hygiene Optional
Unfortunately modern dentistry has apparently escaped the average redneck. Your redneck costume gets a little added juice by adding a set of disgusting, worn teeth. You can purchase plenty of fake teeth of varying styles and quality or use tooth paint to do it yourself.
Accessories Make the Redneck
You have your beat up jeans, mullet, wifebeater and hunting boots. Even your teeth are feeling the transformation at this point, but now what? Sure - you can stop right here but where is the fun in not playing the part full tilt?Try adding some accessories to your costume. Some common items to add to your final costume could be the over fashionable fanny pack, an open bottle of beer, aviator sunglasses, cigarettes, bandanna and the always popular leather wallet attached to you by a chain.
The Final Outcome
When you compile all of your redneck costume ideas together this is what you could wind up with. The costume is so basic that most of it can be found last minute at any second hand store. Feel free to add your own twist tot he costume and mix and match the ideas to really bring out your outer redneck.
