Cousin Eddie Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

You either love him or you hate him. Cousin Eddie might have a really big presence when he’s in the room but that doesn’t necessarily equate to being a good thing. Cousin Eddie’s just too different from normal suburban life that you’ll find yourself cringing from all his awkward moments to hiding behind something from the downright embarrassing ones.

Cousin Eddie’s most memorable outfit was when he was cleaning outside with nothing but his fluffy bathrobe on. Well, he pairs it with a comfy winter hunting hat and a can of beer so he’s fine. Here’s everything you need to look like Cousin Eddie.
