“Top Gun” would have to be one of the most influential movies of all time. Who can forget this movie that brought Tom Cruise into the limelight and made him a legitimate star? If you’re going to an 80’s themed costume party, this can be a great costume idea. Pulling off a Top Gun costume is relatively inexpensive because all the things needed can be found in your very own household. There are 2 popular costume imitations of Tom Cruise’s character and these are the biker guy and the fighter pilot.
To make the biker version of the costume, here’s what you need:
A wash out faded blue jeans A plain body fit white t-shirt A bomber-styled leather jacket A pair of rugged black boots Aviator shades
Just wear all of these and you’re good to go.
If you choose to pull off the fighter pilot costume, just replace the jeans and the jacket with a green jumpsuit with some patches. Of course don’t forget to wear the iconic aviator shades. There are also other characters to choose like Iceman (Val Kilmer). Should you choose to be like him, all you need is a blonde hair to go with the rest of the pilot costume.
