In May, Tyler, The Creator released IGOR. The release was teased with with short clips of Tyler, The Creator performing songs from the album wearing bright colored suits while rocking a blond wig. Unclear about the aesthetic, but I was into it. And thus it prompted another Halloween idea – another nod to a Hip-Hop artist I have grown to appreciate over time.

Now, how to achieve this look?

Do it all yourself, boo!

Simplicity patterns has plenty of options. In my Halloween rush, I went for Simplicity 8528 which is a men’s suit pattern which likely caused some issues with fitting in the shoulder and sleeve, but hindsight is 20/20 right!?

But another great go to pattern is Simplicity’s Mimi G 8749 pattern which has an online sew along.

You can’t lose with that one. You can get step by step online instruction with Mimi G!

I was stubborn about having welt pockets on the blazer, which I think you can forgo (if you have on all the other accessories and have the bright colored suit, I think folks won’t mind that you do not have welt pockets.) If you are like me and like to make more trouble for yourself on the DIY front, there are plenty of tutorials on welt pockets on the interwebs. I am fond of Shwin and Shwin’s tutorial.

Do some of it yourself

The Suit

Suit making on the fly not your cup of tea? If you have some sewing skills you can purchase a couple of suits on the cheap and modify them to achieve the look.

Going for the red and pink number buy one red and one pink suit in the same size. Cut out the red sleeve and pant from the respective suits and do a little switchero and stitch them to the pink suit.

Buy it yourself

The Suit

About a week before Halloween, Tyler sold his infamous suit in three different colors. Though sold out, maybe, just maybe they will get restocked for next Halloween. Bookmark the Golf Wang site, just in case.

Though I have made a wig or two in my day, I am not going full on DIY with this costume. I bought a wig on Amazon and cut it into the IGOR style.

Accessories

The grill will have to wait for another day, but if you are so inclined use that Amazon flex and buy a grill online. Costume jeweler of the faux gold kinds is available online and in brick and motor stores like Claire’s and Forever 21. I purchased Tuxedo shoes from Poshmark. Oh and the mic, I just happened to have one lying around, but you can certainly buy one from a costume shop.
