Wear a black and white outfit that looks like it's from the 50s (Judy had a black and white-checked tea length skirt, black stockings, a white top and black button down sweater). You could also wear black, white, or gray pedal pushers. Use gray make-up (can be found in any Halloween store) to cover any areas of skin that are showing. Judy used some shading on her face to make it look like she was wearing regular makeup like blush and eye shadow, but it was all just different shades of gray. You can use different shades of gray eye shadow to get this effect. You can wear white gloves so you don't have to paint your hands. Put on a gray, white, or black wig and bright red lipstick. You will look like you are a black and white TV character, but the red lipstick will show that you're from Pleasantville!
