Hagrid Costume

From his hair and clothing to his crossbow and pink umbrella, here are all the items you need for a Hagrid costume.

Finding a Hagrid costume for Halloween can be challenging but I have found plenty of items that you can use to make your own.

Hagrid is a true outdoors man. He was expelled from Hogwart’s during his third year of school, but was allowed to stay as a grounds keeper. This proved to be the perfect job for Hagrid because it allows him to spend much of his time outside, often caring for or in the presence of wild or dangerous creatures, which he loves.

It was Hagrid who collected the newly orphaned baby Harry Potter and brought him to the Dursley’s, where Dumbledore left Harry to be raised. Although a literal giant of a man, Hagrid has a kind nature and was truly heartbroken when he had to say goodbye to Harry. Therefore, it was fitting that Hagrid was the one who came to get Harry when it was time for Harry to start wizarding school.


Hagrid Costume

There used to be a Hagrid costume just for kids and not adults. However, the child outfit has been hard to find, if at all, for years, and I'm pleased to see that an adult one is now available!

Adult Coat And Shirt

You can get the costume seen above or you can put together your own outfit, and that's where the fun begins! If you are fortunate enough to have a long, brown overcoat, use it. If not, then a duster is a great alternative that looks very similar to Hagrid’s large moleskin coat. You will also want to wear a brown shirt for an authentic look, but try to keep it rugged looking. A brown t-shirt would be fine, or any other style that you really like.

Beard And Wig Set

Now that you have the clothing or costume for Hagrid, you need to finish the look by wearing a wig and beard. It is true that there is no official Hagrid wig and beard, but there are plenty of alternatives for you to choose from. You can go for a wild caveman appearance or more of a Jesus look (minus the crown of thorns, of course!), either of which work well for a Hagrid outfit. There is also a Hagrid wig and beard set, which is new, but looks great!

Mask

Hagrid masks are made from latex, and include hair and a beard. They show him with scratches on his face, and it is up to you to decide if the scratches came from one of his beloved vicious beasts, or if it came from his half-brother Grawp, a true giant.

Accessories For A Hagrid Costume

There are plenty of ways you can accessorize your Hagrid outfit. I've included a crossbow and lantern, which Hagrid takes with him when he goes into the Forbidden Forest. When he is tempted to do magic, something that Hagrid is forbidden to do, he does so with the help of his wand, which is hidden inside a pink umbrella, which is my favorite accessory. The girlyer the umbrella, the better it will be. The aviator goggles are from when Hagrid drove Sirius's flying motorcycle to deliver baby Harry to Dumbledore after the death of Harry's parents. Lastly, you'll need keys because Hagrid is the keeper of keys at Hogwarts.

Animals

Hagrid is almost always seen with an animal, and the more vicious the animal, the more Hagrid loves it (with the exception of his beloved Fang). It could be his faithful, though cowardly, pet dog Fang, his three-headed dog Fluffy, a giant spider, or a newly hatched dragon. Add authenticity to your outfit by having at least one creature with you.

Video Of Rubeus Hagrid

The actor who played Hagrid is Robbie Coltrane, who is a naturally large man. But he also had a stunt double, and this video shows his double getting into the stunt Hagrid suit. Wow! There's so much more to the outfit than I would have ever guessed.
