How to Make a Rambo Outfit

Rambo, or John Rambo, is a fictional movie character from a series of four movies released over the span of 20-plus years. The movies are based on a book called "First Blood," and Rambo was the main character of that book. Rambo is a mercenary who fights warlords to help the innocent victims of conflict. In the movies, he is portrayed by actor Sylvester Stallone, so he is a well-built, athletic guy. To make a Rambo costume, you need little-to-none crafting skills, and a quick hunt through your closet and a local thrift store should turn up everything you need.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Camouflage trousers
  • Black or dark-green tank top

  1. 1

    Put on a pair of camouflage trousers. Rambo wears his on the tighter side, so make sure your camo trousers are not too loose.

  2. 2

    Pair your camouflage trousers with a tight-fitting black or dark-green tank top. Tuck it into the waistband of your trousers.

  3. 3

    Don a wig with black wavy, shoulder-length hair. Rip a long strip of fabric about 1 to 2 inches in width from your old black or red T-shirt. Tie the strip around your head, positioning it just above your brow. Position the knot on the side and allow the ends to hang down to your shoulder.

  4. 4

    Accessorise your Rambo costume with a pair of black combat boots. Carry a fake gun; Rambo carried a machine gun, so try to find something similar.

  5. 5

    Apply black face paint below your eyes.
