For the Halloween season, Pop Shop will be giving you ideas for what to dress up as! For the next several weeks, blog posts will be containing costume inspiration and products to buy.
So you always wanted to be like Owen Grady from Jurassic World, huh? Well here’s some good news! Halloween is just around the corner and what a perfect day to be your idol.
Jurassic World has pretty neat costume items. Here’s what’s available for licensed costumes, plus DIY ideas if you prefer that route.
When Owen Grady is training dinosaurs and saving Jurassic World, he sports a brown leather vest with a gray button down shirt with cuffed sleeves. His bottoms are dark gray jeans.
Rubie’s Costume Co. has put together a licensed costume. Of course the quality isn’t as good as every day clothing, the outfit is pretty close in resemblance.
The costume comes with a brown vest, gray buttoned down shirt with cuffed sleeves and gray pants. The Jurassic World emblem is sewed into the front of the left side of the vest.
The sized come in standard; 42 to 44 inch jacket size, 32 to 36 inch waist, and X-Large; 44 to 46 inch jacket size, 36 to 40 inch waist.
This costume ranges in price from $45.39 to $66.49 and available on Amazon.
If you prefer better quality clothes for costumes, here are items that could live up to Owen’s potential. Starting with this grey short sleeved button down shirt to wear under the vests below.
Owen wears a leather cargo vest that has sustain durability, enough to maintain Raptors and T-Rex attacks. You can find a vest similar to this one on Amazon.
If you’re looking to spend a pretty penny on a durable leather vest similar to Owen’s, here is one that’s pretty perfect.
The Jurassic Park Vest Brown Leather by RLW is $74.49 and has sizes starting at extra extra small and ending in extra extra large. It’s made of faux leather with a polyester lining.
The V-neck design allows for the front zipper only up halfway. It has four squared pockets, two inside pockets and some zippers.
For a more affordable option that’s just as good is rocking this Work Utility Vest by Beat The World. This utility vest is made of 90% polyester and 10% cotton. It’s pretty lightweight. I suggest choosing the black option, or charcoal, since there is no dark brown option. I think any dark color would be good at capturing the essence of Owen Grady.
As for bottoms, these dark grey LEVI’s Men’s Jeans are a good match. The prices range from $39.99 to $69.50. That may be pricey but remember you could always wear them after Halloween!
Now I hope that if you’re partying with someone dressed as Owen, then dinosaurs must be present. To keep up with this theme, pay tribute to the most vital part of these Jurassic Park stories–dinos!
Hot Topic is selling Jurassic World licensed inflatable dinosaur costumes. The best part of this whole collection is that they specifically made Blue–Owen’s beloved raptor who he’s had a bond with since she was born. Go all out as this clever girl.
