Rick Sanchez Cosplay Costumes

If you’re into cosplaying animated characters, we highly recommend zany grandfather, Rick Sanchez from television’s Rick & Morty. Accessories are vital to pulling off this look. Stopping into your local costume shop for a cotton candy colored, blue wig is an excellent way to start. His trademark white lab coat can also be purchased in a costume shop or in a uniform store. A t-shirt in the same shade of blue as his hair should be worn beneath the lab coat.

For his pants, khakis will do, over a pair of utilitarian black shoes will complete his outfit. Group cosplay is a fun option as there are plenty of characters to include. For instance, sidekick and grandson, Morty Smith or granddaughter Summer are worthy of the group. You can also add daughter, Beth Smith or son-in-law Jerry Smith!

Rick Sanchez Costume Tips & FAQs

Transform into the brilliant yet unconventional Rick Sanchez with our detailed costume guide FAQ. Perfect for fans aiming to embody the mad scientist from “Rick and Morty,” this guide provides insights into capturing Rick’s distinctive look and persona. From his trademark lab coat to his unique hair style, we cover all you need to know for an authentic Rick Sanchez costume.

To dress up as Rick Sanchez, you'll need a light blue, long-sleeved shirt, brown pants, and a white lab coat, which is his most recognizable attire. Add a black belt and dark brown shoes to complete the basic outfit. These elements capture Rick's signature scientist look with a casual twist.

Rick's hair is one of his most distinctive features. It's wild, spiky, and light blue-gray in color. A wig that matches this style would be ideal. For facial features, Rick has a unibrow and often a slightly disheveled, stubbled beard. You can use makeup to create the unibrow and facial stubble if necessary.

Yes, Rick is rarely seen without his portal gun, so a replica would be a great addition to your costume. You can find toy portal guns or make a DIY version. Another accessory could be a flask, as Rick is often depicted drinking. However, remember to abide by event or venue rules regarding props.

Rick wears simple, dark brown shoes. The shoes should be comfortable and practical, as they are not a focal point of his outfit. Any plain, dark brown shoes or sneakers would work well to match his utilitarian style.

Rick is known for his witty, sarcastic, and sometimes profound quotes. Here are a few you can use: "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!," "I turned myself into a pickle, Morty! I'm Pickle Riiick!," "Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everybody's gonna die. Come watch TV.," "Science isn't about 'why', it's about 'why not'." and "To live is to risk it all; otherwise, you're just an inert chunk of randomly assembled molecules drifting wherever the universe blows you." These quotes capture Rick's eccentric, nihilistic, and often humorous outlook on life and the universe.

About Rick Sanchez

Self proclaimed “Smartest person in the universe,” Rick Sanchez is both reckless and pessimistic. Father to Beth Smith and grandfather to Summer Smith and sidekick, Morty Smith, Rick is an alcoholic genius scientist. Frequently traveling through space with grandson Morty, Rick can seemingly engineer and outwit his way out of any mess. Even in crisis, his nonchalant attitude makes him a natural leader and hero to his grandson.

Having to deal with a son-in-law that doesn’t like the influence he has on his son, Rick still manages to keep Morty at his side through most of his misadventures. His famous catchphrase is “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub.” which translates to “I am in great pain, please help me.” in Birdperson. Though constantly insulting the intelligence of his grandson, Morty, the boy still sticks closely to his grandfather and even manages to teach him some things along the way.
