Ace Ventura is a character in the crime comedy titled “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”. Created by Jack Bernstein in the early 1990’s. Ace Ventura is a private detective in Florida. His forte is locating animals who have been captured. Ace gets an unusual case in which a mascot of the Miami NFL team goes missing. Th unusual thing about this is that the mascot is a dolphin. The case gets even stranger when the players go missing. Ace teams up with Melissa Robinson, the dolphins representative. They work together to solve the case. Ace Ventura was a commercial success but received a mixed reception from critics.
For the Ace Ventura costume, I have gone with the Hawaiian shirt look but he does have quite a few outfits in the films. I will add links below to all the items needed t complete this Ace Ventura costume along with descriptions of the items used.
Black Hawaiian Shirt & wig
For the Ace Ventura costume shirt, I found on Amazon. There are two styles of shirt Ace primary wears in the film, the blueish Hawaiian shirt and the black Hawaiian shirt. What I went for the black version was it was easier to find. The shirt is made completely from polyester. It looks like the shirt advertised. It feels fairly comfortable to wear but it does have a slight rigidity to it. The shirt also comes with the Ace Ventura costume wig. The quality of the wig was ok. It came quite messy so it took a while to shape it into the style that Ace uses. Overall a good quality Hawaiian shirt with a half decent wig included.
White tank top
For the white tank top, I got on amazon. It is comprised mainly of bamboo viscose, a fabric I had not heard of before. The bamboo fabric, in my opinion, is a more breathable fabric that has the comfortable level of cotton. The size fitted very well. A quality product and a fabric that I will look out for in future.
Red/black Ace Ventura costume striped pants
The pants, I found in amazon. These are a red and black striped pants made from cotton. they looked very much like the pants used in the Ace Ventura costume. They are light and are quite comfortable. They were a tad bit tight around the waist and ankles but I think that’s mainly the style than any thing else. When you put all of these elements together, the Ace Ventura costume looks fantastic.
For the boots, I went with black boots that go above the ankle. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to black boots as they are fairly common.
