Indiana Jones appears on many of the greatest fictional characters top 100 lists.
The Indiana Jones costume will be initially focusing on will be from the first film “Raiders of the Lost Ark” but I do plan on adding the variations seen through the later films so check back here if you are interested. I will leave links below to all the elements of this Indiana Jones costume along with informative descriptions on why I picked the items in question.
Indiana jones costume
For the Indiana jones costume, I found a custom made version on Etsy. This Indiana jones costume is made to order so made sure you get your measurements right. As for the costume itself, all the items included which are the leather jacket, the beige pants, belt holster, bag and trilby hat are all high-quality items. The jacket is not real leather, but you wouldn’t expect to be considering the price, but it does feel very good. This costume does not include the shoes and gun, but I’ve included them below for you. Overall a fantastic Indiana jones costume from a fantastic seller.
For the Indiana jones costume gun, I choose a replica revolver. This is custom made piece from the Indiana jones “Raiders of the Lost Ark” film. The gun is constructed from resin and has a very nice weight and feel to it. It may bite a bit pricey, but I think its worth it. Once I was finished with the costume I made a stand for it and put it on display in my room. It looks soon good.
For the boots, I went with a brown pair I found on amazon. These look fantastic for the price. They are fairly comfortable. You might find some discomfort if you wear them with thick socks. I am more of a runners type of person so I gave them to my father when I was finished with them and he loved them.
Indiana jones style bullwhip
For the whip Indiana Jones uses, I went with bullwhip I found on Etsy. From my understand this is made from real leather and from the feel of it I would agree. When you first get it, it can be quite stiff but after several uses, it will soften out. A really out quality piece and a must have for this Indiana jones costume.
