Halloween isn’t too far off which means it’s time to start thinking about your costume! This year A.Ron and I have decided to go as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. We obviously love Breaking Bad and I know there are people out there who love it just as much as us. That’s why I’ve decided to put together the ultimate Breaking Bad costume for the various versions of Walter White.
This will obviously be the most popular version of Walt out there. You can make it as cheap or expensive as you’d like.
The hat is an exact match in style if you pull the feather out. I’m guessing there will be a lot of people who want to wear this thing out and about so I’ve included a very high quality version of the hat along with a decent quality one.
High Quality | Costume Quality
There’s a suspicious shortage of good costume goatees out there but this one could easily be trimmed into a good Heisenberg. It’s a bit darker than Walt’s goatee but it matches the rest of his dark outfit. It’s also made of real human hair; a little creepy but that’s how the pros roll. If you’d rather not do any trimming, get the super cheap costume-quality goatee. The goat needs to be attached with spirit gum and there’s remover included in case you want to eventually abandon your meth dealer persona.
Designer Quality | Costume Quality
The designer glasses aren’t an exact match but the shape is almost exactly the same. The lenses look light but they should darken up once they’re shaded by the brim of your signature porkpie hat. If you just want a really dark pair of sunglasses for that more sinister look, check out these Costume Quality Terminator Sunglasses or pick up some other low quality sunglasses at your local CVS or Walgreens.
You can also go with the standard Walter White glasses since Heisenberg doesn’t always wear the sunglasses.
Be sure to get a good cough going too.
For something a little different you can go for Walt as seen in the lab with these real-life hazmat suits and accessories. This costume is a bit more expensive than the others but the bonus is that it’s fully functional. In it, you’ll be prepared for anything, including a random cloud of phosphene gas.
The yellow hazmat suits that Walt and Jesse wear in the show are Dupont Tychem suits, according to the production crew. They come in several sizes so be sure to get one that fits.
This is the exact mask that they use in the show. For the most accurate look, be sure to get the one with the rubber cover on the front, especially if you plan to actually cook meth with it. You’ll need it to cover the holes that aren’t covered by the filters. They come in several sizes which are all linked to.
These are essential to complete the look and block out all phosphene gas while cooking meth. The pink organic vapor / acid gas are the exact same ones they use in the show so they’ll obviously fit the mask I linked above.
No Walter White is complete without a sidekick.
If you’re not a big fan of Walter White, why not get into the gangster spirit with a Jesse Pinkman costume?
Jesse is pretty easy to pull off. Just dig around in your little brother’s dresser and grab the baggiest, most ridiculous hoodie and jeans you can find. Top it off with a matching beanie and you’re good. So long as you’re standing next to a well-executed and perpetually glaring Walter White, people will know who you’re supposed to be.
Necessary Accessory – Blue Meth!
Of course, no Heisenberg or Jesse Pinkman would be complete without their trademark blue meth. Cook up some homemade blue meth candy in your kitchen with this recipe or just buy the real cotton candy flavor rock candy online. It’s what they actually use on the show.
Hopefully this will help you create your perfect Walter White or Heisenberg costume for Halloween. If you have any suggestions, leave a comment.
