Tony Montana aka “Scarface,” played by Al Pacino, is one of the most notorious characters in film history. With his fashionable gangster style, he is someone well worth cosplaying. Follow this costume guide and the world is yours. Accessorize Scarface’s look with a Gold Tone 6mm Chain Link Necklace and a pair of Metal Turbo Sunglasses. You should also arm yourself with a Crossman Stinger R37 Spring Airsoft Gun.
Tony Montana is known best for his White Double-Breasted Dress Suit with a stylish Men’s Regular Fit Dress Shirt. Add the same 100% Silk Red & White Pocket Square to dress up the suit. Cap off the look with a pair of Stacy Adams Atticus Oxford shoes with black Men’s Cotton Socks.
The self-coined “Political Refugee,” Tony Montana’s signature suit is easily the most recognizable at any convention. Lucky for you, it’s also a fairly simple costume to pull off. A double-breasted suit in cocaine white with a red collared shirt beneath and a matching pocket square will just about give you the complete look. Add a faux M-16 or two and you’ve got it! For fun, dab some baby powder or corn starch on your nose and upper lip to really sell that final scene.
For group cosplay, you can’t have Tony without Elvira, kid sister Gina, and former best friend and comrade, Manny. Being joined by doomed characters like Frank and Omar would also be a nice twist.

We find a perfect example of how power can quickly lead to madness as seen in Tony Montana from the movie Scarface. Able to escape Cuba to start over in Miami, FL, Tony rapidly becomes dissatisfied with his new life and believes he’s worth more than his worth as a dishwasher. He’s shrewd and calculated with an overblown ego that only continues to inflate as he makes his way up the food chain.
His inner circle is tiny, only including wing man Manny, little sister Gina, and resentful mother. This circle would later grow to include Elvira but never like the original three. Through sheer determination, Tony rises to the top. The world is his and seemingly half its drug supply as well. Paranoia from his chronic cocaine use causes his empire to begin crumbling. At one time having it all, in the end, he was left with no friends, family, or allies. He died in a blaze of gunfire and coke dust, a victim of his own excess.
