Best Eddie Munster Costume Guide
Played by Butch Patrick, Eddie Munster is a character on the popular CBS sitcom The Munsters. The only child of Herman Munster and Lily Munster, Eddie is a typical all-American boy. With one small exception, he’s a werewolf! Sometimes he shows signs of being part-vampire too. He attends school like a normal boy and has normal human friends. Apart from his werewolf traits such as pointed ears, an unusually large widow’s peak, and the fact that he always wears a Fauntleroy’s suit, he’s like any other kid in town. He’s often seen with his stuffed werewolf (no, not a teddy bear) who he calls Woof-Woof. Get the look of the young American werewolf boy with this Eddie Munster costume guide.
To cosplay Eddie Munster’s look, you’ll need a Navy Long-Sleeved Shirt, Navy Shorts, Navy Crew Socks, a Detachable Peter Pan Collar, Black Bow with Clip, Burt Plain-Toe Oxford shoes, Styling Gel, Black Eyebrow Pencil, and White Face Paint.
Eddie Munster Cosplay Costumes
Apart from the fact that he’s part-werewolf and somehow part-vampire, Eddie Munster is pretty much like any other young boy. He looks up to his dad as his hero and often brags about him to his friends. Cosplaying as Eddie is like cosplaying as an eccentric character from the Victorian era. His look is often characterized by a Peter Pan collar atop a navy long-sleeved undershirt, both paired with navy shorts and plain-toe Oxfords. You won’t look like a typical American boy, but you’ll definitely look like Eddie Munster. Especially if you gel your hair back, put on thick eyebrows, and paint your face white.
Go cosplaying with the whole Munster family. Let your friends or family members dress up as dad Herman Munster, mom Lily Munster, grandpa Vladimir Dracula, cousin Marilyn Munster, and uncle Charlie Munster.
About Eddie Munster
Eddie Munster comes from a family of different monsters. His father, Herman Munster, is a monster similar to Frankenstein’s monster while his mother, Lily, is a vampire. The odd monster pairing makes you wonder how Eddie became mostly werewolf. Eddie’s grandpa, who is also a vampire, lives with them too, along with his cousin Beverly Owen. Beverly happens to be the only non-monster of the household, which actually makes her the family outcast. Apart from being a household full of monsters, The Munsters are actually quite typical and all-American, following common themes and stereotypes of the time (the 1960s). Herman, the father, is the head of the household and is the one who brings in the bacon while Lily, the mother, is the typical all-around housewife. Eddie, in this family, is the precocious little kid who was always making up stories about his dad to his friends – many of which his dad had to try to live up to in funny situations.
