Best Moondog Costume Guide
Moondog is a stoner poet from the 2019 movie, Beach Bum. He lives a hedonistic lifestyle in the Florida Keys, working on his book and partying all the time. Though Moondog is past his prime, people still consider him a local legend. His rich wife Minnie supports his lifestyle while having an affair with R&B singer, Lingerie, who also happens to be Moondog’s friend. When Minnie dies, she leaves half her estate to Heather and half to Moondog, but his share is frozen under Heather’s control. Moondog, played by Matthew McConaughey, can only get his share once he improves his behavior and finishes his novel.

Moondog Cosplay Costumes
Moondog’s look is as colorful as his lifestyle. His yellow floral shirt and shorts are guaranteed to grab people’s attention. He sports long wavy blond hair which he mostly wears down. Covering his eyes are a pair of flip-up sunglasses. And he sports a spotless white fanny pack around his neck. Moondog tops off his eccentric outfit with a captain’s hat.
The Moondog costume set already includes a wig, so you don’t have to worry about it if your hair isn’t long or blond. If your eyes aren’t steel blue, perhaps you can wear contacts to resemble Matthew McConaughey’s eye color. Darkening your skin with a shade of tan will also help since Moondog lives the beach lifestyle. If you have a smooth face and time to spare, you can also grow some beard before attending your [Halloween] costume party.
Because of his stoner lifestyle, Moondog indulges in escapades that displease his daughter Heather and his agent, Lewis. He discovers that Minnie, his wife, and Lingerie, his friend, are having an affair. Minnie eventually tracks down Moondog and the two of them ends up having drinks at a local bar. These drinks later result in Minnie getting into a deadly accident.
Moondog gets half of her estate, but Heather controls it. He gets involved in even more escapades which result in him being wanted by the law. This prompts Moondog to flee to the Key West with lots of the potent Jamaican weed in tow. Eventually, Moondog completes his book, which he titled “The Beach Bum.” This earned him a Pulitzer-prize and his impressed daughter, Heather, unfreezes his share of Minnie’s estate. Matthew McConaughey plays Moondog, which earned him praise from critics.
