Morty's costume is quite minimal, but you can add a brown belt to your blue jeans for an extra touch of authenticity. Additionally, carrying a portal gun toy or prop can enhance the costume, instantly connecting you to the "Rick and Morty" universe.

Morty is known for his anxious and often exasperated dialogues. Here are a few classic Morty quotes: "Aw, jeez, Rick...," "I mean, why would a Pop-Tart want to live inside a toaster, Rick?

Come watch TV?," "You're like Hitler but even Hitler cared about Germany or something!" and "I'm more than just a hammer."

About Morty Smith

Morty Smith Jr. is a good-humored teenager who is easily manipulated. Suffering from a pronounced stutter, he gives off the impression of being slow-witted, but nothing could be further than the truth. Though pliant and by no means a leader; he is the perfect sidekick for his grandfather. Through misadventure, his true being seems to come to light. He is capable of making good decisions for the right reasons and his remarkable ability to understand complex concepts leads viewers to believe in his understated intelligence.

Despite this intelligence, Morty is constantly told by his parents and even by his grandfather, that he is stupid. His poor performance at school seems to lend truth to their opinions. This causes Morty to have a relatively low opinion of himself. However, this does not prevent him from sticking up for himself on numerous occasions. He’s an unlikely father to his half-robot son Morty Jr. and cares deeply for his welfare. In all, Morty is the perfect underdog and a wonderfully simple character to cosplay!
