In the movie, you’ll see Kevin wearing several different pullover sweaters, but the most recognizable one is the dark red one, so most people buy a red sweater to go with their costume.

Kevin also spends a lot of time outdoors so he is often seen wearing the same things you and I would wear if we were about to head out in cold weather.

Jeans, a pullover sweater, a jacket, and gloves, hat, and scarf are essentially all you need to look just like Kevin, and many of these items can be found in your closet or in a thrift store, so you shouldn’t have to look far or pay a lot of money to put the costume together correctly.

About Kevin McCallister From the Home Alone Movie

Kevin is the youngest child of the McCallister clan, and because of an alarm clock that didn’t go off and a few other things, he gets left behind when his family goes to Paris for Christmas vacation. His escapades, while the family is away, are what the movie is all about, and it’s a delightful movie indeed.

When you want to dress up like Kevin, you’ll essentially need just a cold-weather outfit because this is what he wears throughout a lot of the movie. Even when he’s inside, he tends to be wearing slacks and a sweater, so it’s easy to get the pieces you’ll need to make the perfect costume in the end.


The truth is that if you’ve seen the movie Home Alone, it’s not a bad idea to choose to dress up like Kevin McCallister for your next Halloween or Christmas party. It’s a comfortable outfit and one that is easy to find. You also won’t have to pay a lot of money for it even if you buy everything brand new.

When you’re looking for a costume, what’s more fun than finding one that belongs to a kid? The Kevin McCallister costume is one that you’ll very much enjoy wearing for your next event.
