Boondock Saints is a crime film set in America. Created by Troy Duffy and published by franchise Pictures in 2000. the film stars two Irish brothers who are twins, Conner and Murphy MacManus. The pair is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at their local pub when they are attacked by Russian gangsters, stating that they should close the pub indefinitely. In self-defence, the brothers kill the gangsters. This sparks a war in which the brothers set out to rid the city of crime that has taken over. The film was a commercial success, generating huge profits, however, it received poor reviews from critics.
The Boondock Saints costume that we will be showing you how to put together will be the brothers Conner and Murphy MacManus, portrayed by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus. I will add all relevant links below along with all the information need on the items used.
I found a black pea coat on amazon. It is made from various materials that include wool and rayon. A very nice wool coat that feels very soft and ver comfortable to wear. I’ve never owned a pea coat before so I didn’t know what to expect but I am very happy with this coat. It looks very stylish. I actually wear this to work now because it keeps me very warm. Overall great coat, perfect for the Boondock saints costume.
Dark Green shirt
I went for a dark green shirt, I got this amazon. Made completely from cotton. Not an exact match to the t-shirt used in the Boondock saints costume but it looks good and its a very affordable option. As for the t-shirt itself, I only wore this a couple of times so I don’t know how long it will last. I was ok to wear not the best t-shirt I’ve bought but it did the job for this costume.
Boondock saints costume necklace
The necklace used in the Boondock saints costume is a black rosary cross. A good quality necklace made from metal. It has veritas Aequitas inscribed on the necklace. The detail work on the necklace looks good for the most part. Overall a good necklace that adds authenticity to the costume.
The black sunglasses I got on amazon. I didn’t go over the top with the glasses as I just needed them for this costume. I just picked a simple pair that were very affordable. They are made from plastic. For the price, I am very surprised how great these are. They look very stylish. I use these now if I know that they might get roughed up by an activity I’m doing that day. Overall A good pair of sunglasses, perfect for the Boondock Saints costume.
I went for a pair of denim Jeans, I bought a pair a while back on amazon So instead of purchasing a new pair for this costume I just used those, anything that I can do to save money, I’m all over, as long as it doesn’t ruin the costume. The jeans I bought were great, used them loads after my previous costume. they wash well and show no visible signs of wear so far. Great pair of jeans.
Drop leg holster
The leg holster I went for was a black tactical leg holster This straps onto your leg and is adjustable.
Prop gun with silencer
For the gun, I went with a BB gun. I chose this because it had the silencer on the front which matched the beretta used in the film. I just used it as a prop so I cannot really comment on how good it is in terms of a BB gun but as a prop it was great.
For the boots, I went with some simple black boots I had bought for a previous costume. If you don’t have a pair of black boots I will link the pair I bought on amazon. They work well for a lot of costumes and fell very comfortable even for me as I normally hate boots!!
