With Halloween coming up, it’s time get a costume ready, so why not dress up with a military costume? It’s one of the best costumes out there because you can wear the authentic items that real soldiers where.
Camo shirt – There’s all kinds of different camo patterns out there, but one of the most recognizable is the Army Combat Uniform digital pattern. Soldier City has a great price on the shirt for the ACU. Check it out here.
Camo Pants – If you’re getting an ACU shirt, you’ll want the pants as well. Soldier City also has the pants to match the shirt in several sizes here.
Combat Boots – You’d think that authentic combat boots would be pretty expensive, but you can actually get some cheap at Amazon. These are the desert tan combat boots worn in the field, but you can also get the black, shined style.
Those three items should get you started, but after that, the possibilities are limitless. We’ll give you a few suggestions for some more accessories.
Tactical Vest – There’s lots of high-quality vests that are compatible with the MOLLE pack system out there that would work perfectly with the military costume, but those are usually pretty spendy. As an alternative, you can get a cheaper version that looks just as cool. Check out this one.
