Convict, Prisoner and Inmate Costumes
Dressing up for fun or for a Halloween party requires just the right costume, one that allows you to show off your inner bad guy with a convict costume. Available in a range of styles and sizes, these fun Halloween costumes also make a great family or couple costume, as you can let your family members dress as the cops hauling you in to prison. You can even add fun accessories for an unforgettable gaollbird look.Costume Types
When it comes to putting together a prisoner costume, you have a variety of options. You can opt for the old-fashioned black-and-white striped jumpsuit, or you can choose a more modern orange or tan jumpsuit or shirt-and-bottoms combination. There are styles for men and women, including a sexier variation for female convicts that features a dress or skirt. Kids' costumes typically consist of a matching shirt and trousers.Costume Brands
Some costume brands offer high-quality costumes, including Smiffys, Amscan and Forum. There are also jumpsuits available from brands like Rubie's and California Costume Collections. As you shop, choose a costume brand based on the costume designs, prices or accessories.Size Options
Sizes for robber costumes depend largely on whether the costume is for men, women or children. Some costumes are sized generally, such as small, medium and large, while others offer more specific numbered sizes. Women's costumes, for instance, are sized 10, 12, 14 and so on. There are even one-size-fits-all options. For a more custom fit, opt for a petite or plus-size costume to accommodate and flatter every figure. Kids' costumes are often sized to fit multiple ages, such as ages 7 to 12. If you're not sure about size, size up to ensure that the costume fits.Convict Costume Accessories
Complete your convict costume by adding the proper accessories. These include a hat, handcuffs or even a ball and chain that you can attach to your leg. For a rough and tough look, slip on some tattoo sleeves or carry an axe to mimic being part of a chain gang. A robber mask adds a fun touch, while a pretend bag of money can demonstrate your success.
