We didn’t know that we needed Garth Algar in our lives until he first appeared on Saturday Night Live in 1991. Garth is played by Dana Caarvey on Wayne’s World and it wouldn’t be the same without this second half of the group, and we definitely wouldn’t be laughing as hard without him on our television screens. Garth might be a nervous guy, but he sure does know how to make the audience die with laughter!
Get Garth’s look with this Garth Algar Wig and Glasses, a Purple Plaid Shirt, an Aerosmith Shirt, Jeans with Knee Holes, a Black Bracelet, Black and White Converse Sneakers, and Classic Drum Sticks. If you were wondering how to be completely nerdy while loving rock and roll then Garth is the perfect example of that combination!
It’s time to dress as the one and only Garth Algar! You have probably been watching Garth and Wayne for years, and now you can finally create the best Garth costume for cosplay! The best part about this outfit is that you most likely already have all of the pieces you need and you will only need to get your Garth personality in check.
Start recreating this costume with an Aerosmith tshirt underneath a purple plaid shirt. Grab a pair of light wash jeans with holes in the knees and throw on your black and white Converse sneakers. You will also need a black bracelet to wear on one of your wrists and a pair of large rimmed black eyeglasses. Don’t forget to put on a blonde wig like Garth’s hair if you can’t get your own hair to create a similar style. There you go! Make sure you know your rock and roll bands because you are the recreating of Garth Algar! Send us a picture of your costume now that it’s completed and check out the other who recreated this look if you need any other pointers!
Garth Algar is the best friend and other half of Wayne from Wayne’s World! Garth and Wayne first appeared on Saturday Night Live with their hilarious sketches where they had a public access show. On the show they would talk about their love of rock and roll and all the pretty women in the world. While Wayne is the more confident of the two, Garth is quite the nervous wreck. If he’s not nervous about to talking to women in real life, he’s usually freaking out about his fear of heights or being separated from Wayne.
The duo would be incomplete without Garth because the two’s relationship is what the show revolves around. Even when they are faced with popularity and stardom, the two know their friendship is more important than any price or fame they could possibly reach. Garth started the show with Wayne and they plan on it staying that way until the very end.
