Bill and Ted Costumes for a Most Excellent Adventure!!
Bill and Ted costumes are perfect for Halloween or an 80’s theme party if you want to have an excellent adventure! A most triumphant costume party wouldn’t be complete without Bill and Ted costumes!
There are no official Bill & Ted Excellent Adventure costumes that you can buy a store, but it’s okay, we can make our own with some “Excellent” 80’s gear.
Bill and Ted came out in 1989, the style then was a cross between 80’s glam and 90’s grunge. Some rolled up pants, flannel shirts and white t-shirts make for excellent Bill Ted Excellent Adventure costumes! You’re definitely going to need to practice your air guitar if you’re going to dress up in Bill & Ted costumes for Halloween!

Make a Ted Costume from Bill & Ted Excellent Adventure
First off, Ted wears a Van Halen T-shirt under a black vest with a long-sleeve, red button-up work shirt over it all. In some scenes in the movie the red shirt is tied around his waist, this is very grunge – late 80’s / early 90’s era.
Ted wears a simple pair of mens black shorts that come to the knee, but there are few little things that he does to customize his shorts. Underneath his shorts he is wearing a pair of gray sweat pants that he has rolled up to the knees.
On the LEFT LEG Ted wears a bumper sticker that says “Save the Humans” and right below it he has another
Bill’s Shirt in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure:
We’re in danger of flunking most heinously tomorrow, Ted.
Ted wears a beat up torn up sweatshirt inside out with cut-off sleeves and a midriff. Down one side of the LEFT SHOULDER he has a red line drawn with a sharpie marker. There is also a tear just below the right nipple about an inch and half long. Here are the details for your Bill shirt from the movie, naturally you don’t have to follow them to a T but the more of them you work into the costume, the better.
- Inside out sweatshirt, cut off at sleeves with midriff.
- Red line drawn down left side of shoulder with red sharpie marker
- Tear on right side under nipple about 1-1/2″ long
- B. Preston written on back collar in black sharpie marker
