Best Invisible Man Costume Guide
Is there really a Halloween costume better than Dr. Griffin as The Invisible Man?! The main character from the 1897 sci-fi novel and 1933 movie invented the ability to change his body’s refractive index so that it doesn’t reflect light. He’s mysterious, insane, and best of all invisible? This classic character will always be a great choice for a Halloween costume. No matter where you go wrapped in bandages and wearing sunglasses, everyone will know you are the one and only Invisible Man! Get the look of the classic horror character with this Invisible Man costume guide.
Start the process of cosplaying The Invisible Man by wrapping your face and neck with Gauze. Then, cover the rest of your body with a Men’s Dress Shirt, a Necktie, and a Scarf under a Fitted Overcoat. Throw on a pair of Black Khaki Pants and Oxford Dress Shoes. Get yourself covered with the rest of the accessories, a Magic Hat, Sunglasses, and Cotton Marching Gloves. Now you’re just as invisible as The Invisible Man!
Invisible Man Cosplay Costumes
Choosing a Halloween costume or cosplay that is invisible probably wasn’t your first thought, but dressing as The Invisible Man doesn’t actually require you to be invisible. All you need is a pack of gauze to bandage up your face and neck to make it look like you still have a body. Then, get dressed in a similar suit that Dr. Griffin wears as The Invisible Man. Most of the accessories can be found in a thrift store or a nearby costume shop!
Even The Invisible Man has other people that he is connected to, so grab some of your friends to dress as Flora, Kemp, and Cranley to have the entire laboratory crew together for a group cosplay! Check out The Invisible Man costume gallery to get even more cosplay inspiration than the costume guide.
About Invisible Man
The Invisible Man also goes by Dr. Jack Griffin. He is a scientist from the hit film, The Invisible Man from 1933. The film is a science fiction horror based on H. G. Wells’ novel with the same name. Dr. Griffin has discovered that the power of invisibility can be acquired through a scientific experiment involving the new drug, monocane. Dr. Griffin could easily use this new-found aspect about himself for good, but unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Dr. Griffin may have found out how to turn himself invisible, but now he can’t escape it. He is going insane with his new body, and he is murdering innocent people. He has become consumed by power, and now everyone is out to capture him and stop him from hurting anyone else!
