US Gymnast Halloween Costume | 2012

You Can Be an Olympic Gold-Medal Gymnast Too (For Halloween, That Is)


If you were an avid watcher of the London Olympics, then you're probably already on a first-name basis with Gabby, Aly, Jordyn, McKayla, and Kyla, yes? In that case, following suit on their bold "uniforms" might be one of the greatest — not to mention easiest — tributes you could pay to the Fab Five this Halloween. Warning: emulating a US gold-medal gymnast may require some serious skin-baring (we've included a classic Adidas track suit for a quick coverup option, no worries) and a generous amount of hair spray. That said, we think this costume is perfect for rallying the troops (otherwise known as dressing up with four of your girlfriends), or doing the solo thing à la the individual all-around. Whatever route you take, you'll still need these four things to get the look: a sparkly long-sleeved leotard, a faux gold medal, a hair scrunchie, and a full bottle of hair spray. Then, enhance your gymnast credibility with a little body shimmer thrown into the mix too, and don't be afraid to apply liberally. Seriously. The rest is up to you — although, a few backflips and somersaults might help your case. At the very least, we're pretty sure this Halloween costume will impress McKayla.

Clockwise from top left: Gold Medal ($10), GK Elite V-Neck Long Sleeve Mystique Leotard ($50), DCNL Hair Scrunchies ($3), Julie Hewett Shimmy All Over Face and Body Shimmer Pot ($24), L'Oréal Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray ($15), Adidas So Fresh Jacket ($50), Adidas Tiro 11 Training Pants ($45, not pictured)
