Best Herman Munster Costume Guide
Herman Munster, played by Fred Gwynne, is hundreds of years old and yet still behaves like a child—throwing tantrums and pouting. But, all of this is done in a good-natured manner. His character is the exact opposite of the hideous monster that his appearance deceptively portrays him to be. In fact, even inanimate objects have been known to be so startled by his appearance to come to life reacting in terror! Affectionate and adoringly lovable on The Munsters television show, Herman is the massively oversized teddy bear that is way too large to cuddle! Get the look of the Frankenstein-like character with this Herman Munster costume guide.
Cosplay Herman Munster even if you lack the height to do so. For the costume, you’ll need a matching Black T-Shirt, Brown Suit Jacket, Brown Pants, Black Belt, Cosplay Boots, Frankenstein Mask, and Body Paint. Happy Munster-ing!
Herman Munster Cosplay Costumes
You’d naturally expect a family comprised of an immaculately groomed vampire grandpa, a diva-like vampire mother, a young werewolf son, and a Frankenstein-like patriarch to be completely dysfunctional. Yet, The Munsters are grounded with old-fashioned family values like love and mutual respect. Aside from that, the rest of the classic show is a melting pot of comical blunders in the Munster mansion. There’s Grandpa with his quips of wisdom, Lily with her aristocratic demeanor, Eddie with his inquisitive nature, and Herman who loves to amuse himself with his son’s toys.
It’s an oddball family of ghoulish characters that are the ideal characters for cosplay. Dress up like Herman this Halloween and encourage your other friends to dress up as the other family members from The Munsters—Lily Munster, Grandpa, and Eddie Munster.
About Herman Munster

From there he was resident in England as the adopted son of the Munsters of Munster Hall. Herman then departed to Transylvania, which was where he met Lily Dracula, the woman who became his beloved wife.
