Best Captain Haddock Halloween Costume Guide
Captain Archibald Haddock is the seafarer that appears in nearly every The Adventures of Tintin comic! The two come across each other randomly, and they become best friends, hardly inseparable. Captain Haddock helps Tintin solve crimes, but we all know him best as an alcoholic that has a love for rum and whiskey! Get the look of the alcoholic turned boat captain with this Captain Haddock costume guide.
Create your own Captain Haddock costume with a Blue Turtleneck Sweater, a Double Breasted Jacket, Black Pants, and a pair of Lace-Up Boots. Throw in the captain style accessories with a Captains Hat that has an Anchor Patch on the front, a Black Beard, and a Cigar Pipe that Captain Haddock always has in his mouth! With this look, you’re ready to set sail!
Captain Haddock Cosplay Costumes
Captain Haddock dresses much like any other boat captain, and that helps with putting his look together as a costume! Once you have all the necessary sailing gear picked out from your own closet or the thrift shop, head over to a costume shop to find a black beard, captain’s hat, and a cigar pipe. Layer the shirt underneath the coat. Add the anchor patch onto the captain’s hat, and you will be ready to set sail and solve crimes along with Tintin!
Make sure to bring along some of your own crewmates to dress as your pal Tintin and Professor Calculus to make a group cosplay. Be sure to send us a picture of your costume so it can be our next featured look in the Captain Haddock costume gallery!
About Captain Haddock
Captain Haddock wasn’t always a part of Tintin’s team. For twenty years he sailed with his best friend Captain Chester and then he came aboard the Karaboudjan as the commander. He didn’t have very much luck on this boat, because Captain Haddock was an alcoholic. One of the crew members took advantage of Captain Haddock and he was in danger of losing the boat and his own life!
Luckily, Tintin rescued him from the boat and the two became very close friends. Captain Haddock even ushered Tintin around in his boats to help him solve crimes and fight off the criminals. That doesn’t mean that Captain Haddock quit drinking. Oh no! That man loves whiskey more than anything in his life, and he refuses to drink anything that doesn’t contain alcohol in it! Despite his love for alcohol and boats, Captain Haddock was a big help to his friend Tintin!
