DIY Jimmy Jr. Costume

10.29.14

I’m a lucky girl—two accepted proposals in as many months!

First Alan agreed to be my lawfully wedded husband in November. And this Friday, he’s going to be the Jimmy Jr. to my Tina Belcher. All my dreams are coming true.

Here’s what you need for your own DIY Jimmy Jr. costume:

Be the Jimmy Jr. to somebody's Tina - everything you need for your DIY Jimmy Jr. costume!

vest* || pants* || sneakers*

If you’re looking to embody this dancetastic character for Halloween, you may be hard-pressed to order everything online in time for Friday. BUT it’s a really easy costume to put together from your closet and/or local thrift store!

Just be sure to practice Jimmy’s slick moves.

Ok gang, what are you doing for Halloween??

Oh, and I promise that there will be photographic evidence of our couple costume experience. And if enough people request it, perhaps I can even get Alan to do his dance rendition on video—so speak up everyone! Hehehe.

+++ UPDATE: We pulled it off! Check out our costumes!

  1. So. I’m beginning to think I should watch Bob’s Burgers. I’ve been noticing a growing craze around it and wish I knew what was going on! This looks like an adorably unique couples costume idea, and you’ve got all the perfect pieces planned. Your preparation is admirable, something I cannot say for myself this yr haha!

  2. I LOVE these costumes!!! I was seriously considering being Tina before, but now I have even more of a reason- my fiancé has to be Jimmy JR!

    Please do Louise next!!!
