Tintin Costume

The Adventures of Tintin

Dress up as Tintin

Tintin’s usual get up involves a blue sweater worn over a white collared shirt (if you don’t like to layer, you can use an ingenious detachable white collar). His cutoff pants are brown (or a slight brown-orange hue) and the pair is worn over a pair of white socks and brown shoes. The shoes in the comic book aren’t drawn in a particularly descriptive way, so any decent pair of brown shoes should do (perhaps a dapper pair of Oxford shoes?). In several occasions, he wears a brown trench coat over his usual getup. For some added effect, bring a magnifying glass, and carry a plush Snowy around or place him inside your bag, with his cute head popping out.

Hairstyle: Bright shade of orange, and the hair is gel-ed upwards into a sort of wave.
Makeup: for added effect, apply minimal makeup to make your cheeks rosy

Best friends: dress up as Captain Haddock and Tintin
