Your Costume Pictures | Alex Page
For the droogs' costumes the above items are the same as the Alex Costume. You can read the specifics on that page. This page will cover the differences for each droog.
Close-up of Dim's face
If you are a big person then aim to be Dim instead of Alex. Dim has similar semi-long brown hair like Alex does. Dim's hat differs from Alex's - it is a style of bowler that is smaller in the brim and taller on the top of the head. The scan above is a good shot of the shape of the hat. For the close up note the red orange color of Dim's lips - use some orange/red lipstick to match this. For extra accuracy add a mole to the nose and side of your face.
Dim wearing mask
Dim wears a half clown/hobo latex mask. It covers his eyes with a light brown piece and there is a big red ball for his nose. The mouth is left open and above the eyes are a exaggerated eyebrows.
Bloody suspenders pattern
Dim's suspenders are the same as Alex's except for a dripping bloody pattern on them. This scan will give you an idea of how to make them. Start at armpit level and make a red dripping pattern like a gunshot wound by using the above pattern. It is a piece attached to it, not actually drawn on the suspenders.
Also the shirt is the same style as Alex's - the button down work shirt, except this shirt has black pin stripes which you can see in the scan.
with unwrapped chain
Chain wrapped around waist
This shot shows his outfit is similar to Alex's and I wanted to show Dim's chain. Now a large metal chain would not be comfortable to wear. Dim wears it wrapped a couple of times around his waist like a belt. I recommend a dog chain like the one in picture above - the kind you would hook to a post and then to a dog's choke collar. These are long and lightweight and can be clipped to the suspenders.
Georgie's hat is more like a top hat. It has a flat top, but is thicker than a top hat generally thought of as tall like Abe Lincoln's. The scan above is a good shot of the shape of the hat.
Georgie's left eye has yellow around it, nothing fancy. Apply a decent amount all the way around. There is also a thin blue line that goes from the middle of his forehead to the middle of his nose.
Front and side view of Georgie wearing the mask.
He wears a weird bumpy blue mask that covers his whole face except for his mouth. It has a bit of a point to the nose. Since it is so hard to see in the film you could easily get away with a generic face mask painted a turquoise blue.
You can go with the same white suspenders as Alex, but the shirt is very different. It is a long underwear or long johns type. Where the nipples would be they are raised up and bloody like bullet holes. Cut some round white fabric and sew them on, then use a red fabric marker to make the bloody marks. The head shot also shows a close up of the shirt.
Georgie has a cane similar to Alex's black one, except his is a natural wood color. It isn't painted. The above picture is the best shot of it as it flies through the air.
Face - Close Up
Pete has sandy blond shoulder length hair and wears a black French Beret which is easier to find than Dim or Georgie's hats. Pete also has orangish lipstick plus immediately around the left eye it is blue. Around that it is a light shade of pink. Like all good droogs when up to no good he wears a mask. It is very hard to see it though. It is blue around the eyes, open around the mouth and the weird thing is a piece hangs down past his face on both sides like tusks. He is the least seen, yet most colorful droog.
from the waist up
Outfit from the back
His shirt is like Alex's, but has a button collar like a priest instead of an open collar. Also like Alex he has the bloody eyeballs, but they are on his shoulders next to the suspenders. His suspenders are light gray and have leather on the ends where they hook to the codpiece and cross on the back.
Cane - front and side
Pete has a cane like Georgie with a natural wood color which can be seen in the full body shot. It is dark brown with bumps along the bottom - not smooth like Alex's. The top is also bigger to possibly conceal a knife and a lighter color like is was worn down.

Myron won 2nd place in a costume contest with his Alex. Looks good - nice codpiece.
Amanda and her friends have got the female look down! They spiced it up with a vinyl dominatrix look and I'm sure many vecks were submissive to them that night!
Here is a group of four droogs from DragonCon - unfortunately for them, they didn't have my guide and their costumes are pretty lame - no codpieces or bloody patterns.
Ryan as Alex
Ryan followed my tips and did well for himself coming up with another way to make the maskie.

Devotchkas can be droogs too!
