Forrest Gump Costume

Forrest Gump
Run, everyone, run! Run and dress up as Forrest Gump. An easy suit, button down shirt, and rubber shoes are all you need… And a box of chocolates. Because life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.

Dress up as Forrest Gump

To dress up as one of the most beloved and memorable characters, all you need are a few practical pieces!

Forrest Gump Costume Tom Hanks

Blue Checkered Button Down
The first thing you need is a button down shirt with a blue and white checkered print. This one is a good match, and looks like a cool, laidback piece to add to your wardrobe

Beige / Khaki Blazer
Match the button down with a khaki / beige colored suit and pants.

Nike Cortez NM QS Shoes
Now for the interesting part: rubber shoes. It’s not exactly the shoe of choice for a suit, but it’s an important part of the movie. The actual pair Tom Hanks wears in the movie has a blue line on the bottom, but this is quite accurate as it is and has gotten a lot of positive reviews.

Forrest Gump – Bubba Gump Cap
When Forrest starts running, he is seen sporting a red Bubba Gump cap. Any Forrest Gump movie fan will definitely want to get his/her hands on this one!

Athletic Socks with Red Lines
He wears a pair of socks with red lines

White Box
Now for that extra prop: bring a box of chocolates. All you need is an empty white box like this one.

Yellow Gold Ribbon
Then, tie a yellow ribbon round the box. Voila!

My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
