How To Make A Biker Costume

Updated on August 12, 2017

The biker costume is a great choice for Halloween dress up fun. Men, women, boys and girls can all dress up as motorcycle gang members with the ideas on this costume tutorial page. Haven't you ever dreamt of riding the roads, wind in your hair, wild and free, nestled in the big leather seat of a Harley Davidson motorcycle?

Well, bikers come in all shapes and sizes and so do the clothes they wear. Fancy duds and grubby garments, the choice is yours. Different strokes for different folks. Some of you might dream of riding down the road on a brand new bike, while others are into the Easy Rider look or a Sons of Anarchy costume look. Watch a couple old motorcycle movies to see which kind of biker you want to dress up as...and then get to work finding just the right clothes.

So many biker costume looks, so little time...

Where To Find Clothes To Make Your Biker Halloween Costume

Where do you find the clothes you need to make your own biker costume? Dig through your drawers, closets, and attic to see what you've got and then hit the thrift stores in your area to find the rest of your outfit. Thrift stores are a treasure chest of old clothing and accessories like belts with big buckles, studded one or two and see if you can't find what you need at an inexpensive price.

You can find different bike gang logos on line. Print them out and cut them. Glue them onto your clothing where needed. You can find motorcycle patches on Ebay or You can use temporary tattoos to give yourself a tough guy or girl look. Wigs and beards are available at costume stores and usually are pretty inexpensive to buy to complete your look.

Biker Boots

Boots are the common footwear for a motorcycle rider, and the good news is you probably have a pair you can wear in your closet. Big boots, big buckles, straps, chains, are all a great look for the motorcycle rider. If you have plain boots add some chains to them to make them look authentic. The best thing about a homemade costume is you can use clothing you already have...that saves you a bundle versus buying everything at a costume store. I love to save money, so homemade costumes are my favorites.

Don't Forget The Biker Cop Look For Halloween

Bikers are not all bad guys, we know that...but sometimes bikers are really good guys...we're talking about the motorcycle cop. For this costume idea you will need:

  • Dark blue shirt
  • Dark blue pants
  • Duct Tape (thin) to make a stripe down the side of the police uniform pants leg
  • Printed out emblems
  • A Badge
  • Black boots
  • Sunglasses
  • Police hat

Some police have khaki colored uniforms, but where I am from they wear blue. You can use khaki colored pants and shirt to make your costume if you like. The khaki uniforms always make me think of the California Highway Patrol, or CHIPS.

Print out or draw an emblem to glue or sew onto your uniform shirt. This is a very easy costume to make. You might have to purchase a police style cap, but that shouldn't be too expensive at all. Again, check Ebay, Amazon, or your online costume store for the hard to find accessories you will need to complete your costume look.

Leather, Chains, & Pins, OH MY

I love all the chains and pins this biker chick has on her hat and jacket.

This page has been focused on the motorcycle gang style costume but there are also some very modern looking biker looks too. You can see one in the video I've posted below. The modern looking bad biker is a sleek looking leather outfit and this character carries some big, shiny black weapons. You know right away he's not fooling around.

Look at all those emblems on his jacket and the fringe at her waist.
