Make your own Neo Costume

Neo is “the one”, the chosen savior of humanity in the Matrix, a fictional futuristic world based in the movie series of the same name. In the Matrix, humans are oppressed and used as energy sources for the evil government; Neo and his comrades work as renegades to free their fellow man from the androids that control them. Morpheus and Trinity are also fellow justice–seekers who help Neo with solving the world’s problems. Fans of Keanu Reeves or just the Matrix in general will enjoy dressing up as the hero Neo for Halloween or any dress up party.

Items needed to make your Neo Costume

Items Needed:
Black pants
Black shirt
Black boots
Black duster coat
Dark sunglasses


Step 1: A Neo costume is almost effortless to make, most of the items will already be in your closet. First, you will want to create a base layer that consists of a black shirt, black pants and a pair of black boots. You can wear casual black jeans and a casual black t–shirt or even more dressed up with a black button–down shirt and black trousers – just as long as everything is black!

Step 2: The most important piece of the Neo costume is the long black duster coat. Look for a duster coat that buttons up the front and has a stand–up mandarin–style collar (not a lapel). Wear the jacket buttoned up from the waist to the neck, but opened from the waist down. As you perform the highly choreographed martial arts moves featured in the Matrix, you will look like the real deal punching, kicking and flipping.

Step 3: Finally for your Neo costume, slick your dark hair back and put on a pair of dark, dark sunglasses for the cool, enigmatic look of almost every character featured in the movie series.
