About Borat’s Look

Borat Sagdiyev is a socially awkward TV presenter from the country of Kazakhstan. While filming his reports on his native television, Borat becomes obsessed with fulfilling his dreams of visiting America – which he believes to be “the greatest country in the world” by bribing his producer Azamat Bagatov with sex.

Borat’s fashion has been described as an exaggerated version of traditional male Kazakh clothing. He wears a green mankini, which is famously only worn by men in the remote village of Kuporos, Kazakhstan. Very nice!


How to Dress Like Borat


There are a few simple steps you need to do to pull off a high-quality Borat cosplay:

1. Find a gray suit and white shirt

2. Get a fake mustache, beard, and hairpiece

3. Wear sunglasses and lots of gold jewelry

4. Talk in a thick accent and make outrageous statements

5. Have fun dressing up like Borat for your next costume party!

Wig & Mustache

The most essential costume accessory you will need is the Borat wig, which is available for purchase on its own or bundled with the rest of a Borat costume set. The wig closely resembles Borat’s natural hair.

Borat’s mustache is a defining feature of the character, so if you are planning on only buying the wig, it will probably be necessary to buy a fake mustache as well.
