Easy Referee Costume


Today is the last of my mini Plus Size Costume series we've been running this week. This outfit is the simplest of the bunch – a soccer referee!

How I created my costume:

Outfit – I wore a black polo shirt and a black and white skort (a pair of shorts that have a short skirt over the top of them) that I bought from Rebel Sport (a sporting goods store here in Australia).

Shoes – I wore black tennis shoes (cheap ones from Kmart) with knee high black & white soccer socks.

Accessories – for the accessories I bought a whistle (a soccer ball one!!) from the dollar store. We also made red and yellow cards by laminating coloured cardboard.

What really made this a ‘costume’ is that we bought some white stick-on felt sheets and cut ‘REF’ out and stuck them to the back of our shirts. I didn't get a picture of it, but no one had to ask what we were dressed up as so it worked!

And that’s it! It’s such a SIMPLE and easy costume – and what’s more comfortable than going to a party in sports clothes and sneakers!?
