Although Bruce Lee’s popularity began in the mid-sixties to early seventies, his legacy still lives on in many people today through his introduction of martial arts to the Western society. Born as Lee Jun-fan, he took martial arts on his own path and created Jeet Kune Do.
Due to the popularity and honor still felt towards this exceptional martial artist, he is still kept alive by many fans who opt to dress up like him for Halloween.
He had his first acting debut on television in 1966 on The Green Hornet. He later took it to the big screen and made movies before his sudden death on July 20, 1973. Bruce Lee had three different looks in his movies, and it all depends on what your favorite movie was on deciding on the look you want for Halloween.
Bruce Lee’s Topless Martial Arts Fighting Look
Bruce Lee kept himself very physically fit, and believed in complete nutrition. He stayed away from processed food and ate lots of vegetables and fruits. Bruce Lee also enjoyed different types of training, including weight lifting and lots of abdominal workouts.
If you are in this same shape, you can purchase loose fitting black pants with an elastic or string tie top. The pants should be tapered at the end and have lots of leg room in the thigh area. The look is completed with a black sash, similar to a martial arts belt, which ties around the waist of the pants.
In addition, Bruce Lee was known to use white socks with slip on black, flat shoes for his fighting and regular acting scenes. If you want to take the look further, there are Bruce Lee wigs available in his standard bowl cut, black hair color.
