How to make Walter Sobchak Costume

Walter Sobchak Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
# Item Description
1 Brown Polo Shirt You can take the man out of the military, but you can’t take the military out of the man. Walter wears a simple brown polo shirt tucked inside his cargo shorts, just like a well-groomed soldier.
2 Olive Green Cargo Shorts He may not be as agile as he was during his youth, but Walter still prefers to wear olive green cargo shorts (possibly in remembrance for the time he wore his uniform).
3 Khaki Fishing Vest Walter looks very utilitarian and touristy at the same time with his khaki fishing vest.
4 Beige Belt To keep his shorts from falling and to keep his outfit looking tidy, Walter wears a beige belt around his waist.
5 Black Crew Socks Walter keeps his toes warm and cozy by wearing a simple pair of black crew socks.
6 Black Hunting Shoes Once a soldier, always a soldier so Walter still prefers a pair of sturdy black hunting shoes as footwear.
7 Yellow-Lens Sunglasses Walter likes this pair of sunglasses with yellow lenses; and not going to lie, it’s awesome.
8 Black Pistol Although it might not be the greatest decision to allow Walter a gun, he does have one. So bring a fake black pistol along with you.
9 Military Dog Tag As a commemoration of his time as a soldier, Walter still wears his dogtags. And if you want, you can also include a gold ring with it (from his doomed marriage).
10 Black Watch Everyone, even Walter, needs to know the time wherever he goes.
11 Bandanna You know it’s game time when Walter looks this serious with his bandanna.
12 Folger’s tin If you’re not keen on guns (even the fake ones), you can always bring this along as an alternative. You’d wish it was coffee, but Walter’s Folger’s tin actually holds the ashes of his dear friend, Donny.

He may be violent and he may act rashly but Walter Sobchak is definitely true and loyal to his friends. As the sidekick of The Dude, they balance each other quite comically. While The Dude is mellow and chill, Walter’s all gun ablazing. This trigger-happy and foul-mouthed man may be a bit too much for some, but understanding Walter’s back story about being a war veteran will make others more sympathetic.

Walter’s style looks like his going on a camping trip (but he’s not). He has on a brown polo shirt, olive green cargo shorts, trendy sunglasses with yellow lenses, and a khaki fishing vest. Here’s everything you need to look like Walter Sobchak.
