Tacky Tourist Ideas
Use each of our ideas below to pull together the perfect tacky tourist costume for Halloween. This is one inexpensive way to dress up for a Halloween party.
Start with your hair! Pigtails are perfect and you want to be sure to add a few scrunchies to them! We actually made the pigtails slightly off to add to the look. You can also of course add a hat if you wish. Think big and loud when finding the perfect topper. A beach hat perhaps or an outrageous ball cap. The thrift store is sure to have some great options.
Next, you will want to peruse the men’s section of the thrift store for a Hawaiian shirt like no other. This fun one with cars seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Pair that shirt with khaki shorts, of course. Think about clothing that a typical tourist wears to a beach vacation or even outfits you have seen at Disney.
We also had to have a fanny pack! One with Mr. Kool Aid on it? Even better! Look for colorful options that “work” with your outfit. In other words, they need to be as tacky as possible.
Khaki shorts complete the ensemble but what do you wear on your feet? Sandals with socks of course! Look for strappy Velcro sandals and also long socks that you can pull all the way up! Look for the sandals at the thrift or second-hand store to keep prices low.
A quick trip to any thrift store can yield the tacky tourist costume of your dreams! Head out and find the perfect tacky outfit and then make this your go-to Halloween costume this year. You are sure to turn some heads! Use our tacky tourist costume ideas above to help you complete your look. Make a list of what you need and head out to find your perfect DIY Halloween costume.
