Rick and Morty is one of the hottest shows at the moment and for good reason, the show’s third season has upped the game with more comedy and smart jokes. The show is a loose parody of the Back to the Future trilogy and started out as a short film later developed into a series.
It follows Rick (a parody of Doc) and Morty (a parody of Marty) in their adventures on Earth and out in interdimensional space. In today’s post we’ll be looking at Rick and Morty costumes which will be perfect for cosplay, fancy dress parties and Halloween.
We’ll be dissecting both character’s looks so don’t you worry. I predict this is gonna be a popular choice come Halloween so make sure you’re prepared well in advance. So without further ado let’s get into the meat and potatoes of the guide.
Rick Sanchez Costume
The first character we’re going to tackle is Rick Sanchez who is an obvious parody of Doc Brown from the Back to the Future series. Just like Doc Brown he is known for wearing a white science lab coat and has crazy scientist hair that stands up on end as if he’s just been electrocuted.
If you don’t have a wig handy use blue spray dye to get your hair the right colour and then use copious amounts of hair spray or gel to get that standing on edge hair finish, add a lab coat from the thrift store for a couple of bucks and you’re ready to go.
Morty Smith Costume
Then we have Morty who is an obvious parody of Marty from Back to the Future. His outfit is very simple and consists of a yellow shirt and blue pants. All you need is those two items or wear a pair of blue denim jeans if you don’t have appropriate pants. Don’t forget Morty has brown hair so you may want to wear a wig if your natural hair is not that color.
Rick and Morty Gun Blaster
The last thing you’ll need is Rick and Morty’s space blaster gun that comes in handy on their interdimensional space journeys.
That is everything you’ll need for these two character’s looks. This is would ideal for groups who want to dress up in a theme or friends who want to go Halloween together.
