Every Breaking Bad Halloween Costume You Could Possibly Want (And Where To Get Them)

Breaking Bad

First of all, there are zero spoilers regarding Breaking Bad‘s last season in this post. I’m not a complete asshole, I promise. I definitely watched the series finale, though, so if you wanna discuss that stuff, hit a girl up by email!

Second, you know you wanna dress up as one of these characters. You know it. So here’s how to do it! Some of these costumes are DIY, some are store bought, all are awesome.

First Season Walt


1. Put on a loose light green shirt, like this one:
green shirt j crew2. Get brave. Strip down to your underwear.
3. And by “your underwear” I mean these godawful things you would normally never wear:
hanes underwear4. Except you’ll still look hot and you won’t GAF.

Jesse & Walt Cooking


1. Hazmat suits:

3. If you’re Walt, be sure to talk down to whomever is playing Jesse. If you’re Jesse, be sure to eff things up constantly.

Walt as Heisenberg

Breaking Bad -- Heisenberg Costume

1. Watch several Kanye West videos to pump up your ego.
2. No, really, you should be feeling like you could beat God’s ass at volleyball.
 3. If you have facial hair to shave, shave it into a goatee. If not, wear a fake one.
4. Put on a skin cap to cover up your hair.
5. Wear fake glasses (or real ones, if you got ‘em).
6. Put on a black windbreaker.

Skyler White

2. Put on a pretty coral robe (seriously, what better excuse to wear something incredibly comfortable for Halloween than the whole “I just had a baby and my husband is cray” thing?):

      I. Never. Cared. For. Breaking Bad. There! I said it. Walt sounded like an evil psycho path, though I was always amused that a character liked purple just as much as I do.
