How to Dress Like Butthead
Butthead has bushy brown hair stuck up with gel in a greasy grunge style. He even uses his own snot to fashion his hair, gross! You can get a similar look for your own costume by either using hair gel to fashion your own hair into the right shape you need, or by wearing a dark brown wig.
Pick up a bottle of hair gel or strong hairspray while you’re at it to give your wig that grimy Butthead style! Wear a rubber wig cap underneath to hide your natural hair.
Butthead has a hideous face accentuated by exaggerated facial features including his top gums stuck out above his teeth, a large nose and small eyebrows. Use tweezers and an eyebrow pencil to shape your own brows into Butthead’s look, and use makeup to accentuate your own nose. Practice making Butthead’s weird faces in the mirror before you arrive at your next convention!
Butthead wears a gray shirt with a yellow AC/DC band logo, along with bright red shorts and white sports socks. Unlike his pal Beavis, Butthead doesn’t hike up his sports socks but instead wears them around his ankles.
Use a plain gray t-shirt and bright yellow fabric paint to make your own AC/DC shirt if you prefer.
In some scenes Butthead also wears a red polo shirt and matching red visor for his wage slave job at Burger World. You can purchase polo shirts and visors from most online retail websites, or you can search your local shopping mall to see what you can dig up.
Butthead wears plain black shoes just like Beavis. You can buy black sneakers at any shoe shop.
Butthead’s trademark monotone laughter has become synonymous with Beavis and Butt-Head, and sounds similar to the low bleating of a goat. To give your costume an extra touch of character, practice Butthead’s annoying laughter at home a few times to nail the right sound before your upcoming convention or Halloween party.
Settle down Beavis. This is only gonna hurt for like a minute or something.
