Groucho Marx fancy dress is a very popular costume look. It is instantly recognisable. I’ve recently seen, believe it or not, quite a few hen parties dressing up as group groucho marx hen party theme. So let’s take a look at the kind of things you need to make a great Grouch Marx fancy dress costume.
How to make Groucho Marx fancy dress?
Groucho Marx has a very easy to spot style which makes it perfect for a fancy dress costume. You’ll need a big curved nose, round glasses, bushy eyebrows, a thick moustache, a fake fancy dress cigar. Then you just need to comb your hair in to a suitably unfashionable Groucho style look, don a black suit and you are good to go. One of the more specialist and unusual looks that Groucho Marx is famous for is a red fez. If you look at some of his publicity photos you will often see him wearing his red fez. I like this as an accessory for this look as it might confuse people as to who you are at first but who know their Marx films will quickly pick up on it.
