Hiro Hamada

Hiro Hamada Costume

The main character from Big Hero 6, Hiro Hamada, is one smart cookie and can be pretty cocky about it from time to time. He’s on a mission to save his hometown from the evil professor Callaghan who Hiro is sure had something to do with his brother’s “accidental” death. You can’t miss Hiro with his bright yellow shoelaces and his pal Baymax who looks like a robotic marshmallow!

Tadashi Hamada Costume

Tadashi Hamada is Hiro’s older brother, and the one who created the technological healthcare buddy, Baymax. He is also a brilliant guy like Hiro, but he is much more humble about it. His laid-back attitude matches with his cool guy attire and positive outlook on life.  Unfortunately, Tadashi gets mixed up with the wrong people and it gets all of his friends and younger brother involved.

Big Hero 6 Costume Tips & FAQs

Dive into the futuristic world of “Big Hero 6,” where robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada joins forces with Baymax, a compassionate healthcare companion robot, and a group of high-tech heroes to save the city of San Fransokyo from a masked villain. Whether you’re drawn to Hiro’s genius and determination, Baymax’s warmth and heroism, or the unique abilities of GoGo, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred, this FAQ section will guide you through creating costumes that capture the essence of this action-packed and heartwarming adventure for cosplay events, Halloween, or any themed gathering that calls for a touch of innovation, teamwork, and the spirit of discovery.

To cosplay as Hiro Hamada, focus on his casual yet distinctive style: a dark hoodie, fitted jeans, and sneakers. For his superhero persona, include a purple suit with armor panels, black gloves, and a helmet with a visor. Crafting or finding a small robotic companion like his microbots or a representation of Baymax can add a creative touch. Embodying Hiro’s youthful energy, his brilliance in robotics, and his journey from grief to heroism will bring depth to your portrayal.

For a Baymax costume, aim for his iconic white, inflatable robot look with a large, rounded body, two black eyes on a smooth face, and thick limbs. For his armored version, include red and purple plating designed for combat. Creating a costume that captures Baymax’s gentle and caring nature, along with his formidable strength as a protector, can involve padded materials or inflatable suits to achieve his unique silhouette. Embodying Baymax’s comforting presence and his commitment to helping Hiro and others will enhance your portrayal.

To cosplay as GoGo Tomago, wear her signature yellow and black battle suit, complete with a helmet and magnetic disk wheels attached to her boots for her high-speed abilities. GoGo’s dark hair is often styled in a ponytail, sticking out from the back of her helmet. Incorporating elements that suggest speed and agility, along with a tough and straightforward attitude, will capture the essence of GoGo’s character.

A Wasabi costume requires his green and black armored suit, which features plasma blades extending from the arms for his precision cutting abilities. Wasabi’s dreadlocks and beard are key aspects of his look, along with goggles or a visor for his helmet. Embodying Wasabi’s cautious nature, his commitment to precision, and his moments of bravery will bring authenticity to your costume.

Including memorable quotes from “Big Hero 6” can add character and warmth to your costume or themed interactions. Here are a few iconic lines:

“On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your pain?” – Baymax, offering assistance
“I am not fast.” – Baymax, during a chase scene
“Woman up!” – GoGo Tomago, encouraging bravery
“Hairy baby!” – Baymax, referring to Hiro’s cat, Mochi
“We’re going to need some upgrades.” – Hiro Hamada, preparing for action

Choose quotes that fit your character and the situation, practicing their delivery with the appropriate emotion and context for a truly immersive experience.


About Big Hero 6

The teenage robotic genius Hiro Hamada, voiced by Ryan Potter, is headed down the wrong path by participating in illegal robot fights. His older brother Tadashi Hamada, voiced by Daniel Henney, encourages Hiro to enter the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology science fair. His microbots win, but Tadashi and Professor Callaghan are both killed after a fire erupts at the school. Hiro reactivates Baymax, Tadashi’s healthcare bot, and the two become inseparable.

Hiro and Baymax soon realize someone is producing microbots and a masked man is using them for evil. Hiro equips Baymax with armor while GoGo Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred join Hiro to form a superhero group dressed in high-tech outfits. The friends uncover Professor Callaghan is the masked man that used the microbots to protect himself from the fire at the school science fair. The group foils Callaghan’s evil plan and the six friends dressed in their superhero costumes continue helping those in need.
