How to: Homemade The Black Keys Halloween Costumes

My best friend J and I have been Halloween partners in crime since I can remember. As young kids we would do the trick or treating rounds in my neighborhood then reconvene back at my house, stash our candy loot, switch costumes and go out there again.

These last few years have been no different. In 2010 J and I dressed up at Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney from the band The Black Keys. Here are some tips for a quick and easy Halloween costume:

Essentials for Dan:
-Beard (you can purchase one and glue it on, grow one, or draw one on with a brown expo marker)
-Button up jean/flannel shirt
-Guitar (optional)

Essentials for Pat:
-Buddy Holly-esque glasses
Flannel shirt/band tee
-Drum sticks (optional)

You can also purchase a dress up kit from their website here.

J and I added a “Hello I am” name tag to our get up – and also took around a signed Brothers album poster.

Happy Halloween!
