Legends of the Hidden Temple – Purple Parrots
This costume, never mind it being the easiest one I’ve ever put together, has been the most fun to date! My boyfriend and I dressed as Purple parrot contestants for Orlando’s Mega Convention this past weekend. And, strangely enough, a lot of people LOVED it! So, I figured that even tho it was super easy to put together, that I would do a write up for it anyways.
What do you need to complete this costume?
- Team T-shirt (suppose to be a team comprised of a boy and a girl – 2 people)
- Khaki shorts
- Tennis shoes
- Gold Helmet
- Elbow pads
- Knee pads
- Bike or Weightlifting gloves
- OPTIONAL: game-show prop
Here are the places to find the key parts that you can’t just pick up at your random department or clothing store:
Any t-shirt screen printing place would be able to print the team t-shirt for you. You can also pick them up from: TV store online I got mine from a friend at: SRB ScreenPrinting Thanks Justin, they worked out great!
The helmet we purchased from ebay here: Gold Helmet Buy Now they were good, but not perfect. If you are a stickler for perfection, find yourself a Protec Classic skateboard helmet, a matted one, and paint it gold.
