Dress up like the "A-Team"
Creative Idea for a Group Costume! Be The A -Team:
The 1980s classic A-Team could be a sure hit for a group costume.
Get three of your friends to form your team. Of course, you get first dibs on what character YOU want to be on your Team.
If you have lots of "bling" you are a cinch for being Mr. T.
If you have a tee shirt with a cool saying and a leather bomber jacket, you are for sure Howlin Mad!
Get your creative juices flowing and head to Amazon on the nearest thrift store to create your A-Team today--don't wait too long or all the good stuff will be gone.
FYI: This page is a spin-off of my page "Dress Like Howlin' Mad Murdock" where you will find several ideas.

Who was the A-Team? - A Heartwarming Halloween Story:
In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
In 2006 our A-Team costume brought in over $800.00 in prize money.

Create Mr. T for Halloween: - B A on the A-Team
You might already have all the right items for a Mr. T costume, but one can never have enough bling! Note, if the jewelry items are sold out, just do a search for "bling" on Amazon.com.
Of course you might need another size for your Mr. T costume, so click here to go find it.
One reviewer on Amazon stated that this fake gold necklace was not light weight and looked real. A good inexpensive way to get Mr. T's bling look.
You can BE Hannibal on Halloween: - He was "the Boss" of the A-Team
One could probably go to the thrift store and get some of Hannibal-like clothing (say, army fatigues) but you will probably have to buy the white hair and a cigar--real or fake on Amazon or a mall store. Bet you already have a light blue shirt!
No one ever said that a "costume" could not be used after Halloween!
No wig needed to look like Hannibal.

Now for a Lt. "Faceman" Peck Costume! - Played by Dirk Benedict--how frightening is that?
This could be the easiest costume to create for Halloween. If you really like the style, you could wear the elements of this costume every day! You might even have some of the clothes in your closet. Feel free to click on any item below to search Amazon for A-Team type clothing or accessories on Amazon. It costs nothing to look.
Very 80's hair deserves volumizing. You hair will stay in place while you are jumping off the A-Team van. Take a hit to the chin and you hair will hold your face together, too.
Wear a tee shirt and look oh so A-Team. No one said you cannot save the world from the bad guys and not dress for the occasion.
