Zoe Washburne Halloween Costume

August 12th, 2012 by Kelly 5 Comments

If you don’t know this already, I am a HUGE fan of the short-lived TV show Firefly. I have seen the season like 14 times, along with the follow-up movie, Serenity. So naturally, I thought it would be great to do a Zoe Washburne costume!

First off, the basic outfit. Zoe’s look is surprisingly uncomplicated for how post-apocolyptically awesome it is. The vest, holster and gun are what pull together an otherwise every day sort of outfit.

The good news for you is that you probably already have most of these pieces, or can easily score them at your local department store!

Here are the inexpensive pieces I found across the internet (mostly Amazon). I apologize in advance if they are sold out by the time you read this article!

Costume Pieces for Zoe Washburne

  1. Green V-Neck Thermal – $8.90 at Amazon
  2. Dickie’s Pants – $17 at Amazon
  3. Black Boots – $32.70 at Go Jane
  4. Leather Vest – $40.30 at Go Jane
  5. Belt – $16.10 at Go Jane
  6. Holster (not pictured) – $22.44 at Amazon
  7. Old-fashioned Revolver – $23.55 at Amazon
  8. Suede Necklace – $66.24 at Amazon

Now I think that necklace, pictured above, from Amazon is pretty cute, but believe me, I would never spend $67 on a necklace.

Instead, you can make an even more authentic version using some crafting suede, like this $5 pack at Joann Fabrics (note there are multiple colors available). Just wind it around your neck 4 or 5 times, and then on the last round, wrap it a little bit looser, and make a large knot at the center of your collar bone. Here’s a picture of the real thing, for reference!

    Hello Ireland, point to similar areas

  5. You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be really one thing that I think I’d never understand.

    It kind of feels too complicated and very large for me.

    I’m having a look ahead in your next put up,
    I’ll try to get the hold of it!
