Gus Griswald (Recess) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween 2023

Gustav Patton Griswald, or just ‘Gus’ to his friends in Third Street School, is a stickler for protocol but is a bit dweeby. The youngest of the Recess gang, Gus is a little naïve. He is also very power hungry which might be the result of growing up with a general for a father. Gus’s school outfit is reminiscent of a military uniform consisting of mostly greens and browns.

He may look tough but Gus actually has a soft heart. Here’s everything you need to look like Gus Griswald.

How to make Gus Griswald Costume

Gus Griswald Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
# Item Description
1 Army Green Collared Short-Sleeved Shirt Gus has on a crisp army green shirt with its sleeves rolled up, and he tucks it in neatly inside his pants to look presentable and disciplined.
2 Khaki Chinos Sticking with his military theme, Gus wears smart-looking khaki pants to partner with his crisp top. Gus’s pants end just below his calf, so you could roll up your pants to mimic this.
3 Brown Belt To tie everything together and keep his outfit looking neat, Gus wears a plain brown belt around his waist.
4 White Crew Socks Keeping in line with the utilitarian look of his outfit, Gus has on a pair of plain white crew socks.
5 Brown Leather Oxfords Unlike his friends who prefer wearing sneakers, Gus goes the extra mile and dons on a pair of brown leather oxfords.
6 Blue-Framed Square Glasses Gus’s eyes are designed differently from the gang, and that is framed perfectly by his blue, square glasses.
7 Calculator Watch Gus’s whole outfit is very functional and to the point, so his accessory is like that, as well. A calculator watch helps Gus tell the time and make calculations.
8 Red Dodgeball Although not interested in sports, Gus has a secret reputation for being the best dodgeball player ever. As a tribute to his ‘El Diablo’ alias, bring a red dodgeball (or two, as this was his signature move!) as your prop.
