Jack Burton (Big Trouble in Little China) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
Jack Burton may be a big talking, brawny guy who isn’t necessarily the smartest on the block but he’s no doubt a very loyal and brave friend anyone could ask for.
I mean, not everyone is willing to go fight a gang of trained and mystical Chinese.
Our favorite truck driver turned fighter wears a very tight tank top, a pair of light washed jeans, and knee-high boots when he’s out battling crazy Chinese cults.
He may dress simple, but it sure is memorable! Here’s everything you need to look like Jack Burton.
How to make Jack Burton Costume
|1||Iconic Sleeveless Muscle Tee||In the final battle, we see Jack wearing a tight, white tank top with a Chinese-inspired caricature drawn on it. It has long been iconic and associated with his character.|
|2||Light Washed Jeans||A staple during the 80s, loose light washed jeans are not only comfortable; they are also casually fashionable.|
|3||Dirty Blonde Wig||As mullets aren’t in right now, getting a wig might be a good idea. Just cut it shorter and put on some gel to get Jack’s cleaner look.|
|4||Brown Knee-High Lace Up Boots||Jack also favors some very functional brown, knee-high, lace-up boots that can conveniently hide his knife.|
|5||Tec-9 Gun||Jack’s chosen weapon, an airsoft Tec-9 gun is a great accessory to complete this look.|
|6||Martial Arts Supply Rubber Training Knife||Optional|
About Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China
Even though it majorly flopped during its premiere, the 1980s fantasy-martial arts film Big Trouble in Little China surprisingly became a cult classic that has a dedicated audience still watching it today. What comes as no surprise is how hardcore fans collect even the smallest detail.
One little fact is the name of Jack Burton’s beloved truck. In the beginning of the movie, we see Jack’s truck driving and we hear him mention his truck’s name. It’s Porkchop Express. “This is Jack Burton from the Porkchop Express.” – Jack to his microphone
