Dressing Up? A Sartorial Look At Halloween 3/4: The Mummy #halloweencostume @CostumeBoutique

DC Editor Adam writes…

Are you dressing-up for our Halloween Ghost walks? Today I'm looking at the famous monsters of movieland from a sartorial perspective. We've already looked at Dracula and The Wolfman. Now here's the toughest look of 'em all. The Mummy…

The Mummy

I will be VERY impressed to meet a London Walker in full-blown Mummy costume on one of my Halloween ghost walks. In fact I'd go so far to say that if I do meet a Mummy bandaged from head-to-toe, then I'll give her or him a free walk to compensate for he HOURS it would take to get the look just right!

From a sartorial point of view, however, it's not a good look. Drab drab drab. Can The Mummy accessorize? Cufflinks, perhaps? In Scarob beetle blue? Or even, instead of bandages, why not add a few stocks or cravats to the mix?

The Mummy features in the most recent London Walks Podcast…
