Harry and Marv from Home Alone (1990).

Who is Harry?

This vicious thief with a shiny gold tooth celebrates Christmas by going around suburban Chicago, robbing houses to rob with his partner-in-crime, Marv. Harry is definitely the brains behind the operation, as he deviously pretends to be a police officer to bait residents into telling him whether or not they’ll be out of town for the holidays. 

His evil plan backfires when he decides to rob Kevin MacAllister’s house, and Kevin fights back. Quite… painfully, as Joe Pesci, who portrays Harry in Home Alone, recalls: “In addition to the expected bumps, bruises, and general pains that you would associate with that particular type of physical humor, I did sustain serious burns to the top of my head during the scene where Harry’s hat is set on fire.”

Who doesn’t love a well-dressed villain? In order to become Harry from Home Alone, you’ll first have to invest in a tan oxford shirt and a pair of grey pants. Chicago winters are icy cold, so you’ll have to layer a brown tweed blazer over your shirt, then slip on a grey coat to finish up the look. Don’t forget your accessories: a pair of black dress shoes, a pair of gloves, a scarf, Harry’s iconic dark beanie, and a very respectable, not-suspicious-at-all crowbar. If you want to add a touch of drama to the costume, you can even try to buy a gold tooth, or set your hat on fire!  (Not recommended)
