Cheap Thrills just published a guide to building your very own Kanye West "I Love It" costume for Halloween.
Kanye West's "I Love It" costumes for his single of the same name can be your to behold thanks to a DIY video by Nate, aka Tabasko Sweet of Cheap Thrills. Of the two options at his perusal, Nate bases his DIY (Do It Yourself) project on Lil Pump's rendering of the costume: different footwear, and a personalized chain. To begin his step-by-guide, Nate rounds up all the suggested materials: a large pliable cardboard box, equally large fabric(s), and pieces of foam to match the dimensions you've set.
As you'll see in the instruction video, to build the costume, you must begin by cutting a t-shirt out of the cardboard box. Nate's word of advice: "Make everything bigger than your body and you’ll be fine." The padding is glued into place for "authenticity," as Nate would have it. From there the steps getting a little trickier, and require more attention so be advised: the video is a must-see top to bottom if you are to embark on this DIY project without a team of seamstresses and embroiderers by your side.
If Kanye-Spike Jonze's Goomba-look has galvanized your interest in Halloween this early in the game, then, by all means, plan ahead. This may be your one and only year to pull the costume off in convincing fashion.
