Dexter is the main character from the tv series “Dexter”, a horror/crime drama by showtime. Dexter tv series is based around the books created by Jeff Lindsay in which Dexter’s thirst for blood is channelled into killing brutal criminals that the justice system failed to convict. Dexter hunts the criminals at night, knocking them out with a lethal tranquillizer. He then carefully constructs the infamous kill room, wrapped in plastic. He unleashes his final blow upon is victims with a knife to the heart.
The dexter costume I have chosen to make will be the kill costume, primarily the costume he uses to stalk his victims. I have included the kill costume (apron, face guard) as optional extra if you want that particular costume.
Dexter Long Sleeve T-shirt
The infamous dexter costume kill t-shirt, nothing much to say, it was fairly easy to find. Looks and feels great, no issues.
Olive Drab Cargo Trousers
Dexter uses cargo trousers. For my dexter costume, I went with surplus airborne vintage trousers in an olive tone. I was worried about the color being a little lighter than the original costume, but it looks great.
For the dexter costume gloves, I went with some simple black leather ones I found on amazon.
Brown tactical Boots
For the footwear, I went with some brown work boots. The footwear for this dexter costume doesn’t affect the costume that much. If you have a pair of boots, shoes that are low key in terms of colour, I think will work well. The most important item in this costume is the shirt as long as you have that then anything else is ok.
Dexter Blood Spatter Face Guard
I added this as an optional extra because they are really two dexter style costumes. The stalker dexter costume (above) and this, the dexter kill costume. The face guard I found on amazon, it just a simple face guard, very affordable and had good reviews.
Dexter Style Black Apron
For the dexter kill apron, I went with a branded dexter style kill apron. I choose this primarily because of the blood splatter logo on the front. it really makes the costume stand out than the other basic looking aprons.
