How to make a Milton from Office Space costume
Ask yourself: “Is this good for the company?” Chances are, as long as you’ve still got a job in this turbulent economy… Who cares!! Show your office apathy by dressing up as the ultimate disgruntled worker and pulling together a Milton from “Office Space” costume! Follow these simple DIY tips and you’ll be ready to stick it to The Man in no time!
##Things You’ll Need##
* Thick nerd glasses or drugstore reading glasses
* Short sleeved button-down shirt
* Black necktie
* Black pants
* Initech “badge”
* Pocket protector
* Black pants
* Black nylon socks
* Dress shoes
* Padding for shirt (to give a round effect)
* Red Swingline Stapler
* OPTIONAL – Carton of matches and a Margarita drink
##Putting together your Milton from Office Space costume##
Step 1: Put on your short, sandy brown wig and matching mustache, adhering it to your upper lip with spirit gum. Milton isn’t the most well-groomed guy, so a little hangage over your upper lip is perfectly okay.
Step 2: Put on your oversized thick nerd glasses or pick up a pair of cheap reading glasses from a drugstore.
Step 3: Put on a short-sleeved button down shirt and a plain, black tie. You can use your computer to print out and create a Milton/Initech “badge” to pin to your chest for “security” purposes.
Step 4: Fill a pocket protector with pencils and put it in the pocket of your shirt.
Step 5: Put on your black nylon socks, dress pants, and shoes for a simple, understated look that Milton favors.
Step 6: OPTIONAL: If you’re not really as round as Milton, stuff your shirt with some padding for effect.
Step 7: Grab your prized, red Swingline stapler (you can pick them up at any office supply store) as the piece de resistance for this costume! You can also accessorize with a large box of matches and a margarita for a “celebratory” drink! Ummmmm…. Yeaaaahhhhhh….
