Orange Is The New Black Halloween Costume

orange is the new black halloween costumeOrange Is the New Black is an American comedy-drama series that is set in a prison. It airs on Netflix and has become a real success story. If you are thinking about dressing up as one of the characters from the show, then here are the items you need to create the perfect prison Halloween costume.

The two main characters in the show are Piper and Alex. They used to be a couple back in the day and are now serving sentences for drug related crimes in the same prison.

The prisoners wear two sets of uniforms. They will either be wearing an orange outfit, or they will be wearing a khaki coloured set of scrubs.

Piper’s Prison Costume
The main part of Piper’s outfit is the set of orange scrubs that she wears when she first arrives at the prison. You can get these from any fancy dress store or you might be able to find a cheaper alternative by looking for nurse’s scrubs. They come in all colours and you can pick up a set at a very reasonable price.

The rest of Piper’s prison outfit includes the white long sleeved top that she wears underneath the orange vest. Then you just need the dark coloured sneakers and a pair of white tennis socks to finish the look.

Piper’s Hair
If you want to dress like Piper, you should have long blond hair. If this is not your natural hair colour, you can easily purchase a blond wig online.

Alex’s Prison Costume
Alex wears the tan coloured prison outfit. It is the same style as Piper’s orange scrubs. Again, you could check out the fancy dress stores or see if you can find a set in the nurse’s uniform section of the store.

Alex has long dark hair so if you want to complete the look, invest in a good wig. This character also has a tattoo of a rose on the top of her arm and a ring of vines around her wrist. You can get some really great temporary tattoos that easily adhere to the skin and are then easy to remove once the Halloween celebrations are over.

Don’t forget the pair of black rimmed glasses that she wears.

Crazy Eyes
One of the most distinctive characters in the cast of Orange is the New Black is called Crazy Eyes. She stands out because of her looks and demeanour. She wears the tan set of prison overalls with a grey under-shirt.

If you twist your hair into little plaited knots and cross your eyes, then you are half way to looking like this character.
