If you really want your Macklemore costume to be authentic, you would purchase all of the elements from your local thrift shop. All you need is a faux fur coat, either a pro-gay marriage T-shirt (a reference to his song “Same Love”) or a sports Jersey (the Bulls or Sonics or Celtics), gold chains, high top kicks, black jeans and cool shades. Cheat the hair — no need to shave the sides — by pulling the sides of your hair back really tight, pompadour-ing the middle section, and tying it back into a bun. BOOM. America’s hottest white rapper right now. Get the deets on the non-thrifted pieces above after the jump!
