Beavis And Butt-Head Costumes

Beavis And Butt-Head Costumes

Mike Judge’s ‘Beavis And Butthead’ is a classic adult animated series. The show documents the misadventures of its titular characters. Beavis and Butt-Head are over-the-top stereotypes of the classic ‘slacker teenager’ trope. The duo has been entertaining weird dudes like myself for decades.

Beavis and Butt-Head also make great Halloween costumes, especially for people who don’t want to dress up too much. Today, we are going to go over how to make your own Beavis and Butt-head costumes. You can use this guide to prepare for Halloween or to do a great throwback cosplay.

Beavis And Butt-Head’s Band Shirts

The band shirts that Beavis and Butt-head wear are very basic. The bands themselves most likely don’t sell these shirts. Luckily, many people have recreated these shirts in the classic Beavis and Butt-Head style.

If you are dressing up as Beavis, you are going to need a blue shirt with a Metallica logo on it. If you are dressing up as Butt-head, you will need a black or dark grey shirt with an AC/DC logo on it.

Beavis And Butt-Head’s Shorts

Beavis and Butt-head are always wearing the same pairs of shorts. Based on the design’s lack of texture, and how high above the knee they are, my guess is that they are just wearing regular cotton shorts. These are very easy to find at most stores or online. I own a bunch myself that I use as pajamas.

For a Beavis costume, you will need dark grey shorts. For a Butt-Head costume, you will need red shorts.

Beavis And Butt-Head’s Black Shoes

The shoes that Beavis and Butthead wear are very basic. Any low-top black-on-black sneakers should do the trick here. Most of you will probably have a pair like these laying around. However, there are some cheap alternatives available on Amazon. Also, Walmart usually has shoes like these for under twenty dollars.
