Best Squints Costume Guide
Michael “Squints” Palledorous is part of the local sandlot baseball team in the movie, Sandlot. Squints is the smart aleck of the group known by his black horn-rimmed Coke bottle glasses and goofy smile.
Look just like Squints with a Striped Crew T-Shirt, Medium Chipped 505 Regular Fit Jeans, PF Flyers Center Hi Prints Sneakers, and Black Thick Horn Rim Glasses. Be prepared to play ball with an Easton Core Series Baseball Glove and Black 6 Panel Elastic Hat on backwards. It wouldn’t be the Sandlot if you didn’t bring along a Babe Ruth Autographed Baseball!
Squints Cosplay Costumes
Are you a fan of 90’s cult classics? You wouldn’t be short of fun characters to cosplay if you considered the movie The Sandlot, Squints Palledorous in particular. Resident smart aleck in the group, Squint’s costume is easier to pull off than some of his jokes. A striped crew neck tee, some jeans and a pair of cons which seem to haunt everyone’s closet. His trademark thick rimmed glasses can be paired with a ball cap worn backwards to finish his look. A cheeky grin and boisterous attitude will cement your cosplay and add an extra element to your character.
There are plenty of ways to increase the fun of this cosplay, grab some friends and put the team back together! Smalls, Benny, Ham and Squint’s girl crush, Wendy Peffercorn are all options for this Sandlot reunion. Luckily the baseball theme of this movie makes finding accessories relatively simple, a few simple pieces like a glove or bat and you’re ready for the convention! Peek at our featured pics for more ideas and remember to send in your own of what you come up with!
Costume Collections Featuring Squints
Grandson to former police chief Squidman Palledorous, the originator of the story of the Beast and the meanest man that ever lived, Squints grew up around the sandlot in the San Fernando Valley. He has a smart mouth and a long history of storytelling, especially about the dreaded Mr. Mertle, the owner of The Beast. He took quite a beating from his friends when the facts of his story were little more than fiction. Squints spends most of his time playing baseball with the friends he grew up with and newcomer Scotty Smalls.
His lady love is local lifeguard, Wendy Peffercorn. She wasn’t pleased with Squint’s impression of a drowning man which resulted in her having to perform mouth to mouth on him which got all his sandlot friends banned from the pool. Squints is just an all American kid raised in the 60’s. This timeless, well-loved character is an easy guy to cosplay, and the potential for fun is endless.
