T.J. Detweiler Cosplay Costumes
First appearing on ABC in 1997, the show “Recess” would go on to delight fans of all ages for six seasons. Centered around six best friends, “Recess” chronicled the antics of these fourth graders as they navigated elementary school, their teachers, and other kids. The main protagonist of the series and ringleader of his group of friends was T.J. Detweiler. T.J.’s personality and easily assembled costume make him a great choice for cosplayers. T.J. always wears jeans and a white T-shirt, red sneakers, and a red baseball cap that he wears backward. Don’t forget a green bomber jacket to finish off the look! If your friends want to join in the fun, have them dress up as other characters from the “Recess” gang-like Mikey Blumberg or Gretchen Grundler.
