I want to dress up as a character from a 1980s kid TV show...and of course, the one show that springs (quite literally) to mind, is Inspector Gadget!

Believe it or not, there is only one, yes ONE Inspector Gadget costume available. So here it is...

Sing along...the Inspector Gadget theme tune is so catchy...

Putting together your own Secret Agent Halloween Costume?

Top Inspector Gadget DIY Costume ideas

Everyone loves spies. They've been in movies and stories for years and years and they're super easy to create your own version.

You'll need to get together a few accessories to really pull it off and I've had a few helpful hints and links to help you out.

To start off, you'll need at least some black sunglasses, a long coat (ideally with a collar that you can flip up) and some sort of fedora style hat. You should be able to get these at any Thrift/$1/Charity store, or eBay. Lastly...underneath wear the sort of clothes you would wear in an office (so shirt/blowse, tie, smart shoes etc) so your double agent has a double identity (work and spying, of course)!

You'll need a trench coat for your Halloween Spy Costume...
