Halloween is just around the corner! If you’re looking for a fun costume idea, why not dress up as Maverick from Top Gun? This classic movie has stood the test of time and still resonates with audiences today. It’s one of those movies that even people who have never seen it know about. These costumes are surprisingly easy to put together and make for a great outfit this season!
First, find a white turtleneck and pair it with navy blue slacks. Navy blue is an iconic color that Maverick wears in the movie so this will be a good place to start! Make sure you have a leather jacket for your outfit as well. Brown leather jackets are perfect because they’re similar colors to what Tom Cruise wore on set back then.
For shoes, black dress shoes work best since they’re formal enough for any occasion from Halloween night to trick-or-treating later on! Finally, add some aviator sunglasses and don’t forget your hair styled into short waves like the character’s haircut! This famous hairstyle was not easy to achieve at first but over time people became masters of how to make a top gun haircut.
When it comes to sunglasses, you can either wear the mirrored ones or go for the aviators that were worn by Tom Cruise in the movie! Either way, everyone is sure to be telling you “you fly like an eagle!”
For hair, you can get a top gun haircut or style it in the same way as Tom Cruise wore them!
Finally, for weapons this Halloween night – don’t forget your toy pistol and of course Maverick’s signature salute. That’s what he always does when he takes off in his jet so make sure to do that too before taking off on trick-or-treating with all those other Mavs out there! You might even be able to find some Navy Seal costumes if you’re lucky like I was during my search through Amazon.com last year.

This is a really fun article about how you can dress up as Maverick this Halloween night and it’s going to be great because I know that all of my friends are too excited for me to come over with their babies, and we’re going to have such an awesome time after trick or treating. We’ll probably end up setting off some fireworks out in the backyard later on at night and drink some beer while we do.
I also plan on bringing my dog with me too because he’s going to love this costume and jumping all over the place when I put him in it! He’ll probably try to bite someone at first but then they’re just going to laugh about his hard work and he won’t care anymore because everyone will be laughing with us.
Maverick is my favorite character in top gun so I’m really going to enjoy wearing this costume. He’s just such a great guy and it’ll be like I can actually fly while he does all the work for me!
For those of you who haven’t seen Top Gun before, Maverick was played by Tom Cruise and he has one of the coolest costumes ever made because there are helicopter parts on his helmet that light up when they turn him into an airplane. It’s just too bad that we don’t have any helicopters around here but hey – at least we’ve got some old airplanes lying around if only as decoration pieces from way back when people used them more often than now.”
I love everything about this movie even though I think the ending was a little lackluster. It’s still one of my favorites and I’ll be sure to watch it again before Halloween so that I can try on this costume as soon as possible!
