What do homeless people look like?
There are many homeless people who look like everyone else in jeans and a normal shirt. They sleep in shelters or on a friend’s floor, go to work, shower and wear clean clothes. I would take this slant on the idea and run with it. I think you will shock your classmates and get yourself an A. Contact a local shelter to get more information. You will learn a great deal. Not every homeless person is a dirty bum on the street. Don’t wear designer anything for your project. A person about to lose their home sells everything, just check craigslist, people sell their couches, beds, clothes, TVs, cars, everything to try to stay in their home one more month.
Homeless people dress in all different ways, depending on where they are and how bad their case may be. You can easily find how homeless people look like by going to google.com or any other search engine and type in pictures of homeless people and going to the websites and you will get ideas from there.
Hair: you should let your hair get dry and frizzy like you don’t have shampoo and water on a daily basis. Style: get like one of your old dusty faded hoody’s/sweater’s or even a beatupTshrit with matching toosed and thrown looking pants if you dont have them make’em cut small hoes in your clothing ripe and tear away to make it seem as though you been wearing the same thing for months but not to dramatic though make it look real not a fashion statement. make up: wear none chaped crusty lips and dark eye circles is the look your going for.
