Halloween Location Looks: 30 of 31 – The Big Lebowski

My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 30 is here and it's on my list as one of my favorite Coen Brothers movies. Today’s costume comes from:

Big Lebowski - title card

There is nothing cooler than Jeff Bridges as The Dude.

This opening scene is the best - he's in a Ralphs grocery store, wearing his iconic robe, drinking some milk. Like you do...

I had to hit up a local Ralphs to recreate this fun scene.

The things you'll need for the perfect dude costume are...

1. Robe (mine is from Overstock.com, but anything in the brown family works like a charm!)

2. Beard (this one is c/o Party City)

3. Sandals (I used a freebie pair I got on a flight, but love these $15 Okabashi sandals!)

4. Sunglasses (I'm wearing my prescription ones, but these work as a cheap option!)

Let's go to Ralphs!

I grabbed my robe and headed off to the grocery store!

Employees were restocking while I wore my robe in the dairy section. It's LA, there's crazy stuff everywhere, so nobody blinked an eye!

I tried my best to recreate Jeff's incredible facial hair.

Nothing like a fake beard to really feel like El Duderino.
