One of the coolest characters from any Tarantino movie is Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction. For that reason it is hardly a surprise that a Vincent Vega costume is a popular choice for fancy dress or halloween. Vincent Vega is also an awesome costume for couples if you have someone who wants to dress as Mia Wallace.
Vincent Vega Costume – Pulp Fiction Costume
Making your own Vincent Vega costume is pretty simple and cheap with only a handful of items of clothing needed to copy his style. The only choice you have to make is whether to base your Vincent Vega costume on his black suit or base it on the scene where he and Jules are dressed in shorts and T-shirts. Here we will list the clothing needed for both Pup Fiction costumes.
Vincent Vega Suit
|The main and most important part to make your own Vincent Vega costume is his black suit.
There is only a handful of scenes in the movie where he is seen not wearing his Pulp Fiction black suit so it is something that you have to get right.
The cool thing about Vincent Vega’s black suit is it can be used for other Tarantino character costumes.
Vincent Vega Shirt
|Along with his Pulp Fiction suit Vincent Vega wears a white shirt.
To replicate Vincent Vega’s style do not wear a slim fit white shirt. The shirt worn by Vincent Vega is loose fitting but is still a formal style shirt.
White shirts are cheaply available to buy if you do not have a shirt for your Vincent Vega costume.
Vincent Vega Bolo Tie
|When Vincent Vega goes on his date with Mia Wallace he wears a bolo tie with his black suit.
It could be argued that for a Vincent Vega costume you should wear a black tie like he wears in Pulp Fiction.
The reason we suggest and recommend wearing a bolo tie is because all of Tarantino’s characters who wear black suits wear black ties. Wearing a bolo tie makes it obvious that you’re wearing a Vincent Vega costume.
Vincent Vega Gun
|Vincent Vega is a low level hitman for Marcellus Wallace who is often seen with a gun.
The gun that Vincent Vega uses is a Auto-Ordnance M1911A1 handgun.
While the replica gun you use for your Pulp Fiction costume does not have to be exact it is a cool finishing touch.
Vincent Vega Cigarette
|Vincent Vega loves a cigarette. In Pulp Fiction he appears to roll his own cigarettes.
Even if you smoke yourself it may be impractical to smoke in certain places so the best way of replicating Vincent Vega’s smoking habit is to use a fake cigarette for your Vincent Vega costume.
Vincent Vega T-Shirt
|There are several scenes in Pulp Fiction where Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield give up their black Pulp Fiction suits and end up looking like they are going to a volleyball game.
If this is the Pulp Fiction costume you choose to make then you will need a grey UC Santa Cruz T-shirt.
Vincent Vega Shorts
|To go with Vincent Vega UC Santa Cruz t-shirt you will also need to wear a pair of baggy blue shorts.
You do not need to worry about a specific brand of shorts as it is not obvious which brand is worn by Vincent Vega.
To finish the look of Vincent Vega in these scenes stuff your replica gun down the front of your shorts just like in the movie.
Vincent Vega Hair
|Vincent Vega has very distinctive black hair. He keeps it around shoulder length and has it brushed back from the front of his head.
In the scene where Vincent Vega take Mia Wallace out he actually has his hair tied back in a ponytail.
Obviously not many men have their hair this length so the easiest way to copy his style for your Vincent Vega costume is to buy and use a Pulp Fiction wig.
