How to make a fat suit…
Our school is performing Hairspray and we had to make the skinny singers in the leads look fatter. We needed fat suits, but nobody knew where to begin.
This is what I did.
1. Buy two T-shirts – one in the person’s original size and one
4. You would also need an opening and fasteners at the back. I chose Velcro. Sew this onto the outer layer before putting everything
6. Stitch all the layers together. Cut out the neckline and shorten the sleeves if the character has to wear a low neckline or short sleeves.
7. It is a good idea to stitch elastic around the neck to keep the shoulders from sliding off during the performance.
The finished suit!!
