Gaston is our favorite villain to hate from the Disney films, and he’s annoyingly perfect in both Beauty and the Beast movies. The original animated movie came out in 1991, and the live action remake was released in 2017 knocking the story out of this world! Gaston’s manly character in both the cartoon and live action film are impeccable as always. You can get the complete look of Gaston by following this costume guide.
Cosplay Gaston with a Tricorne Hat, Colonial Man Wig, Red Coat Costume, Rose-Gold Wedding Ring, Oval Onyx Rings, Black Vinyl Boots, and a Fighting Sword. Make sure to bring along his accessories, Gaston likes them almost as much as he enjoys looking at himself in the mirror.
Recreating Disney characters has to be among the best costumes to reenact while attending cosplay conventions. While most people like to dress as the prince and princesses of the movies, portraying the evil guy is secretly what everyone wishes to do at one point. You can dress as Gaston, the conceited, handsome, and desirable (by everyone except the beautiful Belle) villain from the quaint little French town.
You can get most of Gaston’s costume at any costume shop. Start with a dark colonial hairstyle or a similar wig. Add a Tricorne hat too. Gaston is always seen wearing his red soldier coat and matching vest. Wear a pair of tan pants that look like knickers that that stop at your calves. You’ll also need some flashy rings to wear, a pair of black boots, and a fake sword to show off prove your masculinity! Take a look at the other’s who cosplayed this look for some additional pointers!
We know that no one’s neck is as incredibly thick as Gaston’s, and we also know he was determined he would marry the beautiful maiden Belle in the film Beauty and the Beast. The animated Disney movie was released in 1991, and even though we weren’t rooting for Belle and Gaston to be married, he quickly becomes one of our favorite villains. Gaston is the prime example of an egotistical man. The only reason he truly wanted to be with Belle is because he believed her to be the most beautiful.
Gaston couldn’t handle the fact that Belle could love a beast over him, so he made it his mission to kill the beast. This way Belle would be forced to live out her life by Gaston’s side. Unfortunately for him, Gaston’s selfishness got in the way and ended up leading to his own demise. Gaston taught us all that it doesn’t matter how beautiful your outer appearance is, it’s your inner beauty that truly matters.
