Step 3: Pull on a pair of yellow spandex pants (or yellow sweatpants). You can find these at a sporting goods store or discount department store.
Step 4: Tuck your pants into a pair of white or black knee socks. Put on a pair of either cleats or white sneakers to complete your outfit.
Step 5: Put on a long curly wig in either dark brown or black. You can pull it back into a pony tail of you want, or just let it hang loose, man!
Step 6: Put on a Pittsburgh Steelers helmet over the top of it. Either buy a Steelers helmet or find a plain black helmet and decorate it with your own decals! Get on your best “game face” and you’re ready to rock!
