BoJack Horseman Costume Tips & FAQs

Dive into the complex and colorful world of “BoJack Horseman” with our comprehensive costume guide FAQ. We’re here to help you capture the essence of BoJack, the anthropomorphic horse and faded TV star, with tips on how to replicate his distinct look and style.

BoJack Horseman's outfit is distinct yet simple. It consists of a blue sweater, gray blazer, red sneakers, and light blue jeans. Don’t forget his most important feature: a horse mask or makeup to replicate his horse head, complete with a black mane and white diamond on the nose

To recreate BoJack's horse head, you can either use a realistic horse mask or apply makeup for a more DIY approach. If using makeup, focus on a horse-like snout, a white diamond on the nose, and black coloring around the eyes and mane area. Adding a wig or extensions for the mane can enhance the look.

BoJack typically wears a plain, gray notch-lapel blazer and a blue crewneck sweater. Aim for a casual, slightly worn-in look to match his character's style. The sweater should be a bright, solid blue to contrast with the more subdued blazer.

To add authenticity to your BoJack costume, consider accessories like a bottle of whiskey (or a non-alcoholic equivalent for a prop), sunglasses, and perhaps a script or a copy of "Secretariat," referencing his career as an actor. These items capture BoJack's Hollywood lifestyle and his complex personality.

Embodying BoJack's character through his quotes can add depth to your costume. Here are some memorable lines: "It's not about being happy, that's the thing. I'm just trying to get through each day.," "When you look at someone through rose-colored glasses, all the red flags just look like flags.," "I don't understand how people... live. It's amazing to me that people wake up every morning and say, 'Yeah, another day, let's do it.' How do people do it? I don't know how.," "Settle. Because otherwise, you're just going to get older and harder, and more alone. And you're going to do everything you can to fill that hole with friends, and your career, and meaningless sex, but the hole doesn't get filled." and "Life's a bitch and then you die, right?." These quotes reflect BoJack's cynical outlook on life, his struggles with happiness and meaning, and his dark humor, making them perfect for portraying his character.
