Guys — have you heard? Baywatch is coming back and Zac Efron and the Rock are starring in it. This is a YASSSS on so many levels. We decided to celebrate with a Baywatch group costume for our favorite holiday — Halloween. These costumes are a breeze to put together and surprisingly let you show a lot of skin or no skin at all! Follow along to see how we brought this group costume to life.
Can we all take a minute and talk about how hot these ladies are?! For their costumes, I purchased these high cut Stripsky One Piece Backless Swimsuits ($19) from Amazon, along with the signature Baywatch Patch by movie patches ($6). Attach the patch to the bottom left corner with fashion tape or hot glue.
Okay ladies, these bathing suits are high cut and low cut in a lot of areas, so step one is to make sure everything is covered. I suggest pairing these suits with nude tights and a lot of fashion tape. If the tape is just not doing the trick, you can always throw a nude body suit (long sleeve or spaghetti straps) underneath the bathing suit as well. This will definitely hold everything in place and add warmth, since Halloween tends to be a chilly night.
Lifeguard Marisa is here to save the shoreline with her amazing jumping skills. Pro tip: If you are planning to walk the streets, throw on your tennis sneakers underneath the tights so it looks like you are barefoot but really aren’t ;)
Maddie is here to save the beach with her amazing windblown hair. Keep these looks pretty casual when it comes to makeup. You can spice it up with a red lip and beach waves, but just remember, you don’t want crazy runny makeup lines when you need to jump into the water to save lives.
Um, excuse me, Ashley, could you be any hotter?! Finish off your costume with accessories such as a Crown Sporting Goods Red Plastic Whistle ($5) and/or floatation devices.
If there’s trouble on the beach, Brian is there to rescue you. The men’s portion of this group costume is pretty simple: red swim trunks (like these Speedo Surf Runner Volley Swim Trunks ($17), a fanny pack (Kemp Lifeguard Fanny Pack [$7]) and a floatation device (this Smiffy’s Men’s Baywatch Inflatable Float [$12] is perfect!). Throw some zinc on your nose for the ultimate lifeguard look.
Sean just finished his set of 200 crunches and all of a sudden saw some trouble in the distance — oh no! To add a bit of warmth to this skin-baring costume, throw on a red Apparel No. 5 Windbreaker Jacket ($19), just like David Hasselhoff.
Grab the gang and set some time aside for Baywatch modeling before hitting up Halloween parties or events. Also, make sure you practice your slow motion run ;)
Uh oh, something fishy is happening over there on the beach. Good thing we’ve got these babe’n lifeguards to save the day.
