##Things You’ll Need##

* Blue blazer or sport coat

* Shirt

* Tie

* Newsboy cap

* Guitar (or toy guitar)

* Knee socks

* Devil horns (OPTIONAL)

* Short curly wig

##Putting together your Angus Young costume##

Step 1: Get dressed in your schoolboy best! Button your crisp, white shirt all the way to the top and make a nice Windsor knot with your tie. Swing on the ol’ jacket and pull on your schoolboy of rock shorts.

Step 2: Grab them kneesocks and hike ’em up nice and high!

Step 3: Put on your curly wig and put on the newsboy cap over it.

Step 4: Optional, but if you have clip-on Devil horns or a band of them, you can either fix them to the top of your hat with a bit of glue or wear the banded version beneath your cap.

Step 5: Grab your favorite guitar or a toy one. For those about to rock… we salute you!
