One of the biggest and most iconic shows to hit the AMC network ever was Breaking Bad. The show ran from 2008 to 2013 and even though it’s off the air now, the show contained many popular and memorable characters. Many of which, the actors were nominated for Oscars and other awards.
Breaking Bad Halloween Costumes
Featured Product: Breaking Bad Season 1. Emmy® Award winner Bryan Cranston stars as Walter White, a down-on-his-luck chemistry teacher struggling to make ends meet for his wife (Anna Gunn) and physically challenged son (RJ Mitte). Everything changes when Walter receives a startling diagnosis: terminal lung cancer. With only a few years to live and nothing to lose, Walter uses his training as a chemist to cook and sell crystal meth with one of his former students (Aaron Paul). As his status grows, so do his lies, but Walt will stop at nothing to make sure his family is taken care of after he’s gone, even if it means putting all their lives on the line. Executive produced by Vince Gilligan and Mark Johnson.
If you’re looking for an easily recognizable character costume to use for Halloween, Walter White is a great choice. On Breaking Bad, Walt wore several different outfits, but his most remembered one is the yellow toxic suit he frequently wore while working with crystal meth.
The yellow suit costume comes with a yellow jumpsuit that zips up in the back and has a hood you can pull up. The jumpsuit often comes with elastic in the wrists and ankles.
It may also include a black mask similar to the one Walt often wore when working. The mask may have a fake breathing system and foam surrounding it. Blue Latex gloves that go about three inches past the wrist are also included with the costume.
If you want to accessorize, you can also find a goatee that comes with self-adhesives that stay on for a relatively long amount of time. The costume may also include the glasses similar to the ones Walt was always seen wearing on the show, but you’ll have to check to see what accessories are sold jointly with the costume.
Of course, you can also dress up in a hat and dark sunglasses if you want to go as Walt’s alter ego, Heizenberg.
Another easily recognizable character costume is Jessie Pinkman. The costume is similar to Walt’s in several ways. Jesse’s costume is a yellow toxic suit with elastic in the wrists.
The suit zips up in the front and may come with either black or blue Latex gloves. Jesse’s costume also has a mask with a fake breathing system. However, Jesse’s costume may include goggles, which is something not featured in Walt’s costume.
Jesse’s costume may also come with a blue face mask that covers the mouth and nose. The costume may also include white tennis shoes or black boots. Some versions of the costume come with disposable shoe covers. It depends on who the maker of the costume is.
If you’re going with a group of friends, there are a few other character costumes to look into. The first is a Hank Schrader costume. The costume comes with a law enforcement vest, handcuffs, and plastic radio. It may also include a skin cap to give you the bald look Hank had in the show.
The show only featured a couple of standout female characters, but if you’re looking to dress up as one, you might want to check out the costume for Skyler White. The costume includes a purple or black wrap dress, and can be a maternity dress. The costume may also come with a blond, straight haired wig that’s similar to the hairstyle Skyler had in the show.
