Tintin themed fancy dress costumes are an idea that appeals to a broad spectrum of people. The comic books are known by people from age five to fifty and a new generation of fans are watching the latest Tintin movie. So how can you make a great Tintin fancy dress costume?
A Tintin fancy dress costume can be very easy to put together. To match the dashing boy reporter’s signature style you need a light blue crew neck jumper, brown trousers, a tuft in your hair and a snowy dog. Make sure to tuck the collar of the white shirt outside of the neck of the jumper to get the look right. Similarly Tintin always wears his long socks tucked over the bottom edge of his trousers. Snowy could either be a stuff toy you bring with you or you could even have a friend wear a white dog fancy dress outfit.
Blue blistering barnacles! To make a Captain Haddock fancy dress costume you need a blue roll neck jumper. You should sew an anchor emblem in to the centre of it. Then a navy style blazer and fancy dress captain hat. A pipe sticking out of the slightly unkempt but manly beard, a half empty bottle of rum and you are good to go.
For a Thompson Twins fancy dress costume you should get two people to dress up exactly the same. You should both wear a black suit with black tie and white shirt, black bowler hat, and umbrella and a large black walrus style fancy dress moustache.
The Professor Calculus fancy dress look should be pretty easy but it raise to see the costume. You will need a long plum green mackintosh, a round hat of identical colour, a fake goatee beard and a round glass object on the end of a chain to follow round all night.
