Calling all revolutionaries! Morpheus from The Matrix franchise is a character worth cosplaying not just because his outfit is awesome. Real fans understand what a dynamic character he is. Portrayed by Laurence Fishburne in the films, Morpheus is the captain of the Nebuchadnezzar and an inspirational leader to his crew. Follow this complete guide for help putting together his trademark look for your next cosplay convention.
For Morpheus’ outfit, dress up in an authentic The Matrix Morpheus Adult Costume paired with Rubie’s Matrix 2 Morpheus Glasses. Add a Van Heusen Black Dress Shirt paired with a Striped Green Tie and Dark Purple Vest. Cap off Morpheus costume with a pair of Purple Stretch Flat Front Pants and Black Oxfords Dress Shoes. Finally, accessorize simply with a Sugoi Steel Morpheus O Katana.
While Morpheus’s look has a little more color on its palette than the typical all black Matrix style, it’s still pretty singular. We suggest ordering his coat and trademark sunglasses. For the clothing underneath, find a fitted suit in dark purple that you can either, rent, borrow, or buy. Then add an essential tie and pair of black oxfords. Accessorize with a variety of faux guns, and you’re ready to lead a revolution at your next convention.
The Matrix has gifted its fans with great characters like Neo, Trinity, Agent Smith, The Oracle, and Spoon Boy. If you’re trying to put together a group for cosplay, those characters would be our top recommendations. They are obviously the most recognizable.
