Quailman Costume Breakdown
Quailman has no hair, so if you’re folically-challenged yourself, you’ve got a head start here (no pun intended). Otherwise, it’s a case of reaching for the razor, donning a bald cap, or just skipping the hair thing altogether.
The Quailman costume may be one of the easiest superhero outfits to imitate. He wears an olive green sweater or long sleeved top and khaki shorts. The top has a capital letter ‘Q’ emblazoned in red across it which you can easily replicate with some red tape or cut-out cloth. He wears a pair of tighty whitey underpants over top of the khaki shorts.
When it comes to Quailman’s footwear, it’s once again pretty simple. Grey sneakers, such as Converse low tops, are perfect. Wear these with a pair of white socks, and you’re done!
With most superheroes, the accessories are, most certainly, where it’s at. Quailman is no different, and his unmistakeable brown belt fastened around the forehead is what will make you instantly recognizable. That and, well, the tighty whiteys, of course.
The belt itself is all well and good, but if you want to take your Quailman authenticity one step further, that loose bit of belt needs to rise up in the centre of your head and flop over at the top. In case you were wondering what that’s all about, it’s to look like a quail’s distinctive head plumage, of course. To keep your Quailman plumage in place, try securing it with a piece of bendy wire.
Along with the oddly-placed belt, Quailman also wears a sheet or blanket as a cape. This cape is bright red, to match the Q on his sweater, with white trim.
If you really want to accessorize your Quailman costume to the max, then why not include his faithful sidekick, Quail-dog? Whether you bring along your own beloved pooch, persuade a friend to get furry, or take a plush dog along with you, adding Quail-dog to your Quailman costume is a nice finishing touch.
To get the Quail-dog sidekick just right, your furry friend should also wear a brown belt around his head, a giant Q across his chest, and a red blanket with white trim as a cape.
At a costume party full of DC and Marvel superheroes, standing out from the crowd in your Quailman costume is pretty much guaranteed. If you value the comedy factor, and want to express your love for nineties Nickelodeon classics, then now’s your chance. Just make sure those tighty whiteys are nice and clean before you go getting them out in public!
Remember kids, the Quail-call is NOT a toy!
