How to Dress Like Hiro Hamada from ‘Big Hero 6’
Hiro Hamada has short black shaggy hair formed into chopped spikes on his head, giving him a simple yet unique look. To achieve the same look yourself, you can dye your own hair black and cut and style it with hair gel, or try a similarly styled wig. You can buy hair gel from any drugstore or beauty supply shop, and use it to keep the spikes of your wig in place.
Hiro wears a casual ensemble consisting of a bright red oversized t-shirt with a tall robot on the front, a baggy slate-blue sweatshirt with white edging, a pair of brown knee-length khakis and brown Converse sneakers with yellow laces.
You can purchase Hiro’s robot t-shirt online. For the sweatshirt and khakis, check out online retail websites, your local mall, thrift stores and clothing websites to find the right supplies.
You can buy Converse sneakers at most retail shops and local shoe stores, and if you can’t find a pair with bright yellow laces, you can buy laces separately online and weave them into your sneakers.
If you’d rather kick your costume up a notch and dress like Hiro when he’s in action, he wears a superhero outfit that is mostly black, red and purple which comes complete with a horned motorcycle helmet, knee pads, black leather gloves, a black belt and wide black shoes.
You can buy a red and purple leotard and helmet for your costume from a sports store or athletics store, or you can use purple and red yoga pants and a tank top over a long-sleeved shirt. You can also make your own helmet using craft foam and plastic materials.
