Marshall Eriksen (How I Met Your Mother) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
Other than the occasional suit and tie for his lawyer duties, Marshall is always wearing either a graphic tee or a plaid shirt and jeans. Marshall himself has described his persona as “cuddly” and loves to dress for the ultimate comfort. His T-shirts usually have a very worn look to them and his jeans most always have holes in them.
The perfect Marshall outfit would be a worn T-shirt with “Minnesota” written on it to show his love for his hometown, a plaid shirt over the T-shirt, a pair of worn jeans full of holes, and converse to finish off the look. Here is what you will need for your Marshall Eriksen costume.
How to Dress like Marshall Eriksen costume
|1||T-shirt, Minnesota logo||Minnesota is the state Marshall was born in and it has a close place in his heart. As a tender-hearted guy, a nostalgic shirt is perfect for the costume.|
|2||Plaid shirt, doesn’t have to match||To go with Marshalls sort of scruffy look, you could at a clashing plaid shirt over the top of the T-shirt. This way you can add more character to the costume.|
|3||Jeans, worn and holey looking, blue.||Again, because of his love for comfort, Marshall is likely to wear clothes until they are literally falling apart. Jeans full of holes are another way to show this trait in your costume.|
|4||Shoes, Converse sneakers||Converse add a classic element to the whole outfit. A pair of bright colored sneakers bring a fun vibe to the costume and show off Marshall’s goofy side.|
A Marshall Eriksen costume is cool because you can make it into a couple costume with your significant other dressing as Lily. A group costume is also a possibility with your whole friend group dressing as the “How I Met Your Mother” gang.
