Gerald (Hey Arnold) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween 2021

Gerald Johanssen is Arnold’s best friend and is the counterbalance for his personality. Where Arnold is optimistic, Gerald is a realist.

While Arnold likes helping others out, Gerald is more suspicious. But you cannot deny that he’s a very loyal friend.

Gerald is mostly known for his absurdly tall hair, but his outfit rarely changes as well.

He wears a white turtleneck underneath a red sweater with the number 33 written on it, blue pants, and a pair of red sneakers. Here’s everything you need to look like Gerald from Hey Arnold.
