Uncle Rico (Napoleon Dynamite) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

There are fun uncles, and there’s Uncle Rico. You can’t really blame Napoleon for not liking his uncle who’s still hung up on his failed football career and get-rich schemes. Plus, Rico is a huge reason why Napoleon suddenly has a bad reputation at school

Uncle Rico has a lot of memorable (but cringe-worthy) outfits throughout the film. On one of these, he is wearing a light blue polo shirt, a blue vest, denim pants, brown shoes, and a white sweatband. Here’s everything you need to look like Uncle Rico.
