Rick and Morty is all I’ve been hearing about on social media, the third season has continued to grow the series’ popularity. If you somehow don’t know Rick and Morty is an animated science fiction show that broadcast’s on Cartoon Network.
From the off you can tell it takes elements from Back to the Future with Rick as Doc and Morty as Marty (even the name is similar), which follows their adventures on Earth and in space.
It was only a matter of time before I added a Rick and Morty themed guide to the blog. In today’s post we’ll be guiding you on how to make a Pickle Rick costume from scratch.
As there are no official costumes we’ll have to be a little creative but it is possible to create an outfit that will be recognizable to fellow fans of the series. I’ll keep the page updated if a an official cosplay does ever become available, until then let’s get into the main guide.
Rick and Morty Pickle Rick Costume
As I said above there are no official costumes available so we’re going to have to improvise until one does become available (if ever). The first thing you’ll need is a human anatomy costume which you put on first, then over that you want to wear a pickle costume.
Bones & Hands
When Rick turns himself into a pickle there are a lot of exposed muscles and bones. To replicate that you can stick some fake skeleton bones to your costume and wear flesh zombie hands which will give your hands a blooded and exposed appearance.
Then you can use some props to recreate his metallic exoskeleton such as the assassins creep weapon prop and knife hand prop above. You want to end up looking crude but futuristic.
Finally finish off with some fake blood splattered all over your pickle costume to add to the gore effect and not make your outfit look neat and tidy. You could also add a gas mask and green face paint in the hole of the pickle outfit.
There is everything you’ll need to dress as Pickle Rick, I predict this will be a popular choice this Halloween as Pickle Rick is such a new character. Be prepared to take plenty of selfies with fellow Rick and Morty fans.
