Aquaman Costume Guide

Aquaman. Arthur Curry. The King of the Seven Seas. He’s one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC Universe. Not only can he swim at break-neck speeds and breathe underwater, but he also has superhuman strength and his skin may as well be impenetrable. He can communicate with sea creatures telepathically. He can spend time on land without consequence, unlike some his other sea-dwellers. The list goes on and on. Plus he’s royalty. 

In this cosplay tutorial, you will learn how to dress as both the classic version of Aquaman and the new DCEU Aquaman. Read on!

Everyone will be dressed as Jason Momoa’s Aquaman at the conventions this year, so why not go retro. The original Aquaman wears a long sleeve, long pants wetsuit that’s orange up top and green on the bottom with the classic superhero belt with a bright yellow “A.” Plus a trident. He’s Aquaman he’s gotta have a trident.

Hair: 

Think quintessential surfer hair—golden blonde, short on the sides, long on the top, and wind-blown. If you’ve got golden locks that you can style, great. This wig will do the job.

Aquaman Suit & Accessories: 

You’ll be able to find all of these things in stores or online, and this would be a pretty tricky costume to create yourself without the help of a skilled seamstress. An athletic store should have the pants and shirt. 

An orange Under Armour-style shirt and teal leggings/compression pants will be the foundation for Aquaman. Add a green speedo on top of the pants.

For the gloves you can use green dishwashing gloves, which you can find at a dollar store or grocery store.

You’ll need green boots too. You can either use green rain boots or look for a pair of patent leather kelly green boots. Another option would be to find a pair at a second hand store and paint them green.

His belt is bright, safety yellow with a yellow “A” buckle. You’ll probably have to buy the belt and the buckle separately, and paint the buckle to match the belt.

A prop trident will tie the whole look together.
