DIY Where’s Waldo

Posted on 16 Feb 2011 by Desiree Kane

In case y’all haven’t heard yet, is attempting to break the world record for “The Most People Dressed as Where’s Waldo in One Place” during a bar-crawl on Feb 25th, 5:00 PM, at the Epicenter. The current record was set by 1,052 people in 2009 by Rutger’s University. Charlotte has so many fun bar-crawls and this one just takes the cake!

Morris Costumes on Monroe Rd. is selling Where’s Waldo costumes in advance and on the day-of but, if you’re feeling adventurous, this costume can totally be made at home using just a few items you may already have laying around the house/garage!

Here’s a great Flickr tutorial from FireVixen that outlines how to make your own shirt and how to make your own cap.

There are some costume restrictions though, so if you’re going to participate, make sure you get these few items covered so we can blast Rutgers University’s record out of the water:

a white bobble hat with a red bobble and red trim

clear glasses (sunglasses are not acceptable)

a red and white striped shirt

blue jeans

appropriate footwear

Be sure to twitpic your costume to us @cltblog so we can compile and share them!
