In my campaign to bring back shorts shorts, I've decided to do another costume from Wet Hot American Summer, a movie featuring fine early 80's fashion.
First you'll need the right hair.
Proper aviator sunglasses are also necessary. Costume shops usually sell them for pretty cheap.
Then, get some yellow short shorts. American Apparel girls running shorts are always a good bet.
Next, some Navy blue tube socks. I got mine from American Apparel. They're pretty good, but it seems they recently made the stripes narrower for some reason...
Finally, a pair of old school running shoes.
Hunting for a group costume? Pair up with McKinley and Gene, your fellow employees at Camp Firewood, and form a hilarious trio.
