Barnacle Boy (Spongebob Squarepants) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
Barnacle Boy may be sixty-eight years old but old habits die hard. That’s why his mentor still treats him like a kid, much to his dismay. This frustrated senior citizen is a retired sidekick and lives in Sandy Shoals Rest Home with his partner, Mermaid Man, until they were coaxed out of retirement by Spongebob and Patrick.
Barnacle Boy wears a red long-sleeved shirt, a pair of rubber shorts, blue fins, and a white sailor’s hat. Here’s everything you need to look like Barnacle Boy.
How to Dress Like Barnacle Boy
|1||Snug-Fit Red Long-Sleeved Shirt||Like any other superhero, Barnacle Boy wears a super tight, long-sleeved shirt which is great for moving around swiftly. His top comes in a bright red color.|
|2||Plain Black Swim Trunks||Barnacle Boy’s shorts are made out of rubber, which might not be the most comfortable material to wear. A pair of plain black swim trunks is a good alternative.|
|3||Blue Fins||Barnacle Boy’s choice of footwear is a pair of blue swimming fins which isn’t weird considering he lives under the ocean.|
|4||Blue Crew Socks||Barnacle Boy’s blue fins are unrealistically high, making them look like boots. To create this similar effect, wear a pair of crew socks with a similar blue shade to that of your fins.|
|5||Blue Rubber Gloves||Barnacle Boy’s blue rubber gloves tie his superhero costume together, with it being blue and rubbery. It also protects his hands when he’s out fighting crime.|
|6||Blue Scarf||Barnacle Boy’s blue neckerchief makes him look very much like an overgrown boy scout but it did have amazing powers when he was younger.|
|7||Plain Black Tie-Around Mask||Barnacle Boy wears a plain, tie-around black mask over his eyes to keep his identity a secret.|
|8||White Sailor Hat||Barnacle Boy’s white sailor hat is a nice accessory that makes him look more like a marine superhero.|
About Barnacle Boy
Like his mentor, Barnacle Boy is a mixed parody of DC superheroes, mainly Aqualad and Robin (who are sidekicks of Aquaman and Batman). But it was revealed that both Barnacle Boy and Mermaid Man are not just inspired by comic heroes.
Their real names also took inspiration from the voice actors that portrayed them. Barnacle Boy’s real name Tim is a homage to his voice actor, Tim Conway.
