Our costume idea is the characters from the 2017 movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle; Dwayne Johnson’s character Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Nick Jonas’ character Seaplane McDonough, Jack Black’s character Professor Shelly Oberon, Kevin Hart’s character Moose Finbar, and Karen Gillian’s character Ruby Roundhouse.
All costumes were pieced together with clothing items purchased at local thrift shops, Spirit Halloween, and what we already had on hand. The total cost of everything was a little over $200. Ideas were collected using the Costume Wall website.
The Dr. Smolder Bravestone costumes consisted of tactical pants, a gun and leg holster, a tactical shirt, military boots and fingerless gloves.
The Seaplane McDonough costume was a pair of child size tactical pants, a button up shirt, faux leather jacket, boots, and sunglasses.
Shelly Oberon was put together with brown pants folded up to the knee, a boys plaid shirt, a vest I personally dyed brown topped with a khaki colored type overcoat, a pocket watch, bow tie, rain boots, glasses, and boonie hat.
The Moose Finbar costume included a pair of khaki shorts, a green polo, a camouflage vest, boots we added red laces to, a red bandanna, a boonie hat, a green backpack that we actually purchased a green jewel to carry inside, and a pair of binoculars.
Ruby Roundhouse consisted of a pair of brown knee high boots, green shorts, a brown belt, a maroon colored shirt, topped with a brown vest that I also dyed myself, and a red haired wig.
All costumes were finished off with black lines on their wrists for the amount of “player lives” they have.
