In Into the Spiderverse, Peter B. Parker is the down-on-his-luck, washed-up version of Spider-Man who enters Miles Morales’ version of Earth via the multiverse. Luckily for fans, he’s also the version of Spider-Man with the most “traditional” superhero outfit, with a twist.
In this costume guide, we will help you put together the perfect costume to really nail down Peter B. Parker’s slacker superhero look.
How to Dress Like Peter B. Parker from Into the Spiderverse
To dress like Peter B. Parker, consider wearing a dark green jean jacket instead of the usual Spider-Man bodysuit. A pair of jeans underneath will help ease the friction between your legs when you have to crawl around on all fours. Wear one brown boot, maybe with an ankle brace if you need it for the day.
Peter B. Parker wears the traditional red and blue spandex bodysuit that almost everyone is familiar with, only he doesn’t really wear the mask when he’s out and about.
Green Army Jacket
In Into the Spiderverse, Peter wears a green army jacket with patches on the shoulders. This suggests that it is either part of his old uniform or something he found in an army surplus store.
Peter B. Parker always wears jeans when running around in public, regardless of whether they are dirty. He probably does this to make sure he can move around comfortably without being hindered by his suit.
Shoes & Accessories
In the film, the disheveled Peter wears only one brown boot and one Chuck Taylor shoe on the other. It’s an odd pairing, but this comical look is quintessential Peter B. Parker.
