Squints (The Sandlot) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Squints’ own looks are very simple and casual; he mostly wears jeans, sneakers, t-shirts, and his iconic thick black rimmed glasses. Of course you can’t forget a baseball cap, it is a very important part to his character after all. It is also a good idea to include some baseball gear into the costume for a real effect.
