What Could My Costume Be For Gcse Drama?

I am doing my last exam for drama in may. It is a very macabre themed, creepy play, set in an old circus, (say, 1920s) to do with a clown who is murdered by the rest of the main people in the circus, and then, years later, comes back to haunt the people who killed him, and eventually kill them off one by one. Each time he kills someone, he is wearing a different clown mask. For example, when he kills the Ring Master, he will be wearing a psychotic looking mask, and after the ring master is murdered, he is hung up in the murderous clowns hall wearing the same mask as when he killed the ring master.
I am going to be the circuses strong man, and I need to find a suitable outfit for my role. I think we’ll be wearing the same costume for the whole play, and throughout the day. So it has to look good, and be comfortable. Again, set in the 1920s, so it can be shorts and a vest or anything. I had the idea of some plain black stirrup leggings (without shoes or socks), :P, and some gymnasts shorts, and maybe a plain black t-shirt. Say, stuff like this?http://www.marksandspencer.com/Heatgen-F… (LEGGINGS)http://www.dancewear365.com/gymnastics/m… (SHORTS)http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004ZCU5T0/re… (T-SHIRT)
I am a guy, but I think I need to put the same effort in as everyone else, even though I’m not overly confident about wearing the leggings :P.
if you have any suggestions, please say them, even if you don’t think they’re the best.

    Daniel, for some reason circu strong men always used to wear a leopard skin leotard over close-fitting long johns and a long-sleeved vest! Try Googling ‘Circus Strongmen’ and I bet you’ll see what I mean!
