From animated series, Rick & Morty, Mortimer “Morty” Smith Jr. is a 14-year-old high schooler bound for misadventures with his grandfather Rick. While the show is not necessarily appropriate for younger cosplayers, Morty’s signature look is simple and easy to pull off. Follow our guide, and we’ll have you looking like the Harry Herpson High School in no time!
You can start with an American Apparel Yellow T-Shirt over a pair of Men’s Slim Casual Pants. Fruit Of The Loom Men’s Crew Socks inside of a pair of PUMA Men’s Classic Sneakers will complete the clothing portion of this cosplay. As an accessory, we recommend a Light-Up Toy Space Gun with Sound to complete your Morty transformation.
Due to this simplicity of his style, only real Rick & Morty fans will be able to pick you out in a crowd. However, he is still a character well worth cosplaying. Honestly, any yellow t-shirt and a pair of jeans would technically complete his look. We would suggest adding his signature white sneakers to help better identify who you are.
To lend credence to your Morty look, group cosplay will contribute to making you more recognizable. You can have a friend cosplay his partner in misadventure, his grandfather Rick, or for a more authoritative character, Morty’s father Jerry. For couples cosplay, there are a few surprising options. With a choice of Jessica, Annie or Gwendolyn you can complete a successful cosplay couple or even add all three for some added mischief. Take a look at our featured pics for more style ideas, and as always, we welcome your submissions!
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!
