PSY’s Gangnam Style has taken over the world! The music video for hit song has become a global sensation and even becoming the most liked YouTube video in history. Much of that success comes from the music videos pure randomness and killer dance moves. People are even doing flash mobs all around the world doing the popular dance. Celebrities such Tom Cruise and Britney Spears haven even fallen under the spell of this wild Korean pop star by tweeting their love of this wildly amazing music video. So just in time for Halloween we’ll get you set to transform you into PSY, the king of exploding awesomeness, and his dance off partner Yoo Jae-Suk.
Now to start off your PSY costume you’ll need a few things to get the look just right. You’ll need black dress pants, a white tux shirt, a black bow tie, tux shoes, a blue suit coat and sunglasses. With all these things you’ll be almost ready to rock a sandbox beach party!

Now there is a bit work to get PSY’s Gangnam Style just right. Take your white tux shirt and cut the sleeves off at the seams. This way you’ll also feel cooler when you’re dancing all night long.
Now for the suit coat, you’ll need to pick up a black fabric marker from any arts and crafts store. Use the black fabric marker and color in the trim along the lapels and the bottom. You should also color in the trim on the pockets as well.
So when you have these all on and after you got the dance just right you’ll be ready to kick it in true Gangnam Style!
We even have it planned out for you to recreate the epic dance off in the music video with this how-to for Yoo Jae-Suk’s yellow outfit. For his costume we have the perfect yellow tux pants, a yellow jacket, a wig, sunglasses and tights to help you make his scarf.

To make the scarf you take a pair of our black and yellow tights and cut them in half between the legs of the tights.
Then use a sewing machine to sew the two pieces together. When the scarf is together you can tie it like a tie around your neck.
Next the black hair wig will need a bit of work to get Yoo Jae-Suk’s hair just perfect. While being careful cut the back and sides of the wig to give it more of a bowl cut hair style. So when you’re done you’ll look as smooth as Yoo Jae-Suk did when he got out of the sports car!
So once you’re done cutting the wig throw on your tie, jacket, pants, yellow shoes and sunglasses and you’ll be set to challenge PSY to a crazy dance off!
So with these two costumes you’ll be set to live out scenes from the greatest YouTube video ever. All you’ll have to do is learn their dance moves and keep a straight face while having a crazy good time!
