Breaking Good – Breaking Bad Halloween Costumes – Walter White & Heisenberg

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.

Porkpie Hat

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 much cheaper one.

Bald Cap

Unless you’re wiling to shave your head or you don’t have any hair to begin with, the bald cap is a necessity for a proper Heisenberg costume.

The high quality kit comes with everything you need to actually look bald. The costume quality wig isn’t great but it will get the job done at a much lower price.

Branded Goatee | costume quality goatee
Since last Halloween, I’ve found a pretty good goatee on Amazon that is semi-branded as a Heisenberg goatee. If you want to get real, there are also beards and mustaches made of real human hair; a little creepy but that’s how the pros roll. 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.

A Great Match
These glasses are a really good match for Heisenberg’s sunglasses.  They’re not too expensive either.

You can also go with the standard Walter White glasses since Heisenberg doesn’t always wear the sunglasses.

Finally you have his black windbreaker.  It’s pretty nondescript and you could probably get away with just about any black jacket.

Be sure to get a good cough going too.

The Cook


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.

Tychem Hazmat Suit

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.

3M Full Facepiece 6000 Series, Reusable – Size: Medium | Large | MediumSmall

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.

3M Organic Vapor/Acid Gas P100 Cartridge 60923

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 you’re not just some random gangbanger.

 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.
