Deadpool Costume Guide
Do you want to be the Merc with a Mouth, the Regenerating Degenerate, the smart-ass who never met a fourth wall he couldn’t break? Well, you’ve come to the right place, because I am here to guide you on this journey into the heart of insanity that is Deadpool cosplay.
So, kick back and let’s get ready to take on the role of the most unhinged superhero in the game.
Deadpool’s costume consists of a simple one-piece red and black leather bodysuit and can be worn in conjunction with accessories such as red or black boots, gloves, and swords and sheaths.
How to Dress Like Deadpool
To dress up as Deadpool for cosplay or Halloween, you’ll need a costume that looks like how the character looks in the comics or movies. This could mean:
- A Red and Black jumpsuit:
The jumpsuit should be red with black stripes or details and the “DP” logo on the chest. You can buy a jumpsuit that is already made, or you can make your own by making alterations to a red and black bodysuit.
- A Belt:
Deadpool wears a utility belt with pockets and holsters for his weapons. You can find a similar belt at a costume shop or make your own with a black belt and some small pouches or holsters.
- Gloves and Boots:
Both his gloves and boots are red and black. You can buy red and black gloves and boots at a costume shop, or you can make your own with red and black fabric.
- A Red Mask:
Deadpool hides his face with a red mask. You can buy a mask already made, or you can use red fabric and elastic to make your own.
Deadpool is known for his weapons, which can be swords, guns, and other gadgets. You can use props you already have or buy toy versions of these weapons at a costume shop.
If you use weapons as part of your costume, remember to be safe and responsible.

The Deadpool costume features a leather red-and-black jumpsuit with a fitted face mask that is red trimmed in black and covers the neck as well. It also features a belt that stands out and demands notice. It is polyester and fastens with a hook-and-loop fastener, and the chest and shoulders have soft fiberfill padding in them for a more “muscular” look.
Mask & Accessories
The mask has mesh-covered eye openings and if you find the right manufacturer, the entire costume looks just the same as the one worn in the movie. The accessories — boots, gloves, and weapons — aren’t necessary but certainly give the costume a little more authenticity.
The fiberfill in the chest and shoulders is polyurethane foam, and the belt is made out of foam and comes complete with pouches that are printed on it. The fabric waist ties make it easy to attach the belt quickly.

The character has been called “Merc with a Mouth” because he jokes and shit-talks constantly. Oddly, Deadpool knows that he is a fictional comic book character, which is one of his most interesting characteristics.

This is one character that has a very unique look, but the costume is detailed and looks so much like this character that you won’t need any alterations from a tailor.
