Described as “the greatest dragon master this world has ever seen,” Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III from book series and DreamWorks film adaptation of How to Train Your Dragon is a lovable underdog. If you’re looking for a fun and easy cosplay idea, follow the Hiccup costume guide, and you’ll have a rocking look at your next costume party.
With six simple pieces, you can be transformed into the fierce but friendly dragon master. Start with a long Sleeve Shirt over a pair of Pants cinched with a Brown Sash Belt. Hiccup’s look can be capped off with a Fur Shaggy Vest and a rugged pair of Brown Boots.
While his costume becomes more elaborate as the series continues, Hiccup begins the series in a simple costume that includes a shaggy vest and boots over dark green garments and a horned helmet. The clothing he wears beneath the fur accents can easily be found in your closet. Just think forest colors. His shaggy vest and boot covers are an easy find at any local costume shop.
While the horned helmet is optional, you can instead accessorize with a sword and shield, which can also be purchased in a shop or ordered online. A stuffed Toothless is also a nice touch to bring home to others who you’re cosplaying. A group endeavor can also drive this point home, including characters like girlfriend Astrid or twin friends Ruffnut and Tuffnut. Be sure to check out our featured pics for more style ideas.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is the only son of Stoick the Vast and heir to the throne of Berk. Raised to fight and kill dragons, especially after his beloved mother is kidnapped by one, Hiccup in his heart believes what his mother once felt…that dragons are intelligent, peaceful creatures that can be trained to help and live alongside humans. After being pressured to make his first kill, Hiccup was surprised to learn that dragons were just as scared as human beings and wanted nothing more than to be cared for and protected.
Having to go against generations of training, Hiccup is mocked for his softheartedness but eventually earns the trust of a small dragon he names Toothless when he repairs her tail fin. Displaying an impressive ability to train his dragon, he manages to change the thinking of those around him and begins a relationship between humans and dragons unlike anyone has ever seen. Becoming an unstoppable team, Hiccup and Toothless go on to adventures together, proving to those around them that friendship and respect are not only possible between the species but preferred by all.
