Best The Warden Halloween Costume Guide
The Warden is a main character in the popular Adult Swim animated comedy Superjail! Voiced by David Wain, The Warden (as his name would suggest), is the warden and owner of Superjail. He is extremely erratic, often appearing quite cheerful but regularly exposing a twisted, dark side of his personality.
He has magical powers, frequently shape-shifting into various objects, however, nobody really knows where these powers come from.
You can get the look of this eccentric prison warden with a Men’s Top Hat, Men’s Outdoor Winter Gloves, Lennon Sunglasses, Men’s Dress Shirt, Vintage Tailcoat Jacket, Men’s Dress Pants, Men’s Satin Cummerbund and Dress Loafer Shoes.
The Warden Cosplay Costumes
Superjail! First appeared on television screens in 2008 before taking a hiatus and returning in 2011 for a further 3 seasons. While it has been a while since the world was granted new episodes of the show, it has certainly developed a cult following, with the zany character of The Warden being a big part of that.
Visually, the show is great, and has many identifiable characters. Can you find a friend to dress as The Warden’s whipping boy Jared? Maybe his love interest Alice? Maybe go all out and find someone to dress as The Warden’s mechanical helper Jailbot.
We love seeing the great cosplay work you do – so please send your pictures in if you step out in The Warden’s glorious purple attire!
About The Warden
The Warden’s father was also a prison warden who was so dedicated to his work that his son (The Warden) had his bedroom as a prison cell. His father was horrifically brutal as a disciplinarian, which has no doubt shaped The Warden’s narcissistic personality.
After his father’s death, he inherited a prison. However, the traditional jail system didn’t suit his increasingly warped ideas, so he created Superjail – a place he could run exactly how he wanted to. Throughout the series The Warden he seems to take great delight in terrorizing the prisoners and everybody around him, and due to his technical genius, many of his schemes come to fruition regardless of how twisted they are.
Although he is in control of Superjail and should be trying to maintain order, that is the last thing on his mind – he loves the killings which occur and he never misses a planned execution.
