Best Pluto Costume Guide

The 2019 movie Us is a psychological horror film. The movie follows a family who return to the mother’s childhood beach home. The mother, Adelaide, is nervous because of a traumatic experience from when she was younger and it is soon revealed that there’s more to this place than first thought. Four masked strangers break into the family home, making them fight to survive. It is later revealed that the attackers are actually copies of the family and their goal is to remove the ‘tether’ connecting them.

Just like all good psychological horror films, there are many suspicions and theories about Pluto’s character. Pluto is the dopplegänger of the son Jason Peele, played by Evan Alex. Pluto doesn’t speak and, like most of the dopplegängers, has an animal-like behavior. If you want to get the disturbing look of Pluto you will need a Pluto Mask, Red Coveralls, Brown Leather Gloves, Sandals and Gold Scissors.

Pluto Cosplay Costumes

Us has some classic elements of a good horror film and really plays with your mind. From what the movie reveals, each person has a dopplegänger. It seems these dopplegängers try to imitate the human copy but in a more disturbing and violent way. The good thing about this costume is that they all seem to wear the same, or similar outfit! So this is perfect for a Halloween group cosplay! The signature look for the tethered is the Red Coveralls, a pair of Gold Scissors or shears and a creepy mask.

This outfit really works best in numbers, so why not get your friends to join in the fun? Have some hairs raised when you’re walking the streets as Pluto and your friends are some of the other tethered like Red, Abraham or Umbrae. We’d love to see how your costume turns out, so don’t forget to submit a photo to our Halloween Costume Contest!

About Pluto

Pluto is a fictional character played by Evan Alex in the 2019 movie Us. During the 80s, Adelaide Thomas is on vacation with her parents in Santa Cruz when she has a traumatic experience in the hall of mirrors. She doesn’t speak again of that experience until she returns with her own family. Adelaide is sure something is going to happen if they go, but her husband thinks she’s being silly. However, when they arrive things go wrong very quickly. 

A family dressed in red jumpsuits breaks into their home and reveals themselves to be tethered dopplegängers of the family. Their goal is to break the link, which means they need to kill the real copies above ground. Pluto’s the tethered of the son Jason. While each double takes care of their own, Pluto goes to “play” with Jason in the cupboard. Pluto is a little different from the others because he doesn’t actually try to kill Jason, but that’s not to say he doesn’t cause him any harm.
