Best The Goon Halloween Costume Guide
A brute figure and mob enforcer, The Goon is the title character of the comic book series, The Goon, created by Eric Powell. The Goon was orphaned as a child and taken in by his Aunt Kizzie. He grew up at the circus freak show where his aunt lived. There, he felt real love and belonging for the first time. A mobster on the run named Labrazio ended up at the very same circus. This resulted in a shoot-out that resulted in The Goon’s aunt being shot and killed. The Goon promptly killed Labrazio and began living the life of fighting monsters and demons with his sidekick Frank. Get the look of the good-hearted mobster with this The Goon costume guide.

The Goon Cosplay Costumes
A brutish figure, one might expect The Goon to be one of the bad guys. Contrary to what his appearances might suggest, The Goon has good-hearted intentions and uses his strength and prowess to defeat the same type of people that took his aunt away from him. With Labrazio’s black book in hand, The Goon pretends to be the right-hand man of the mobster he killed to defeat the demons and monsters. To steal The Goon’s mobster look yourself, you’ll need a flat cap similar to the one he stole from Labrazio in the comic book. The rest is easy: just pair a striped t-shirt with a pair of basic pants and some work boots. Complete the look by slipping on leather gloves and carrying around a pipe wrench.
You can’t go into fights alone as The Goon, regardless of how big and strong you are. Bring along a few of your friends to get them to cosplay as your sidekick Frank and your worst enemies Zombie Priest, The Coven, and Labrazio.
About The Goon
While The Goon is not your typical hero with supernatural superpowers, he does have what most would consider a nearly superhuman durability and a remarkable level of strength. Even though he is technically an ordinary human, The Goon is still able to protect himself and ultimately defeat supernatural creatures with as if he had “real” superpowers. Also known to be highly skilled in making use of unconventional weapons, The Goon would fashion ordinary tools not fit for fighting into deadly weapons.
The Goon is not just the star of his own comic book series. He has also appeared in other crossover work such as Hellboy where they teamed up with Dethklok of Metalocalypse in an alternate reality. He also stars in a holiday special called The Goon Series Features, which is a reenactment of Charles Dickens’ famous holiday story, A Christmas Carol.
