Bikers may look tough on the outside, but deep down they have a strong passion for travel and all they want is to live in freedom. Capture the romantic notion of living on the open road with a revving Harley and be a biker this Halloween! Here's how:
A biker's threads are his most obvious trademark. Bikers tend to wear leather, both for practical reasons such as its ability to reduce road rash and for the simple reason that it looks really cool.
At the very least, get yourself a leather jacket and a pair of leather pants. Just make sure that there are no biker gang insignias on the jacket or you might find yourself in trouble with rivals. Wear a simple shirt underneath, preferably in black. If you can't afford all of that leather, especially for just one night of festivities, then you can get some fake leather clothes. Some costume stores also sell pre-made biker costumes with cheap clothing options.
The hairstyle of a biker will vary, but of course the coolest would be a long hairstyle that screams metal. If you don't have long hair already, you can buy a wig. The next best style would be a buzz cut. Add some chains, a bandanna, and some fake tattoos.
If you apply fake tattoos make it ironic and silly like; for example, a tattoo of a pretty butterfly alongside a skull and crossbones. As far as shoes, bikers wear boots, especially the steel-toed kind. Ready to conquer the road? Be a biker this Halloween and zoom through the streets on your hog.
