Forrest Gump Halloween Costume Ideas, Run Forrest Fans, Run!
Momma always said, Forrest Gump Halloween costume ideas are easy to come by if you know where to look. I love the idea of Forrest Gump Halloween costumes because it works solo, with couples or in groups. Forrest Gump is one of the most iconic movie characters of all-time and there are lots of ways to take this costume idea and make it for couples or groups. A Forrest Gump costume also makes a cool 90’s theme costume for a party.
If you’re thinking of going as a couple, Forrest and Jenny look cute together. For two men, Forrest and Lt. Dan would make a good set to go as. Some Forrest Gump group costume ideas might be to add Momma, Jenny, and Lt Dan to the posse.

“My mama always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.’”
This traditional Forrest Gump suit costume is available from a couple of online retailers. It comes with the jacket, pants and blue plaid shirt – you’ll have to buy your own box of chocolates guys. This Forrest Gump Halloween costume is undeniable and you’re sure to make a lot of people LOL if you practice your Forrest Gump quotes before the party.
Forrest Gump Running Costume
“I just felt like running..”
The Forrest Gump Halloween running costume is also a popular pick. In the movie, Forrest runs cross-country and wears an outfit like this one here. Forrest wears red running shorts, a yellow shit with green trim, his Bubba Gump shrimpin’ hat and those cool double-stripe red and white tube socks.

One thing you don’t want to be without is the Forrest Gump mustache and beard. In the movie, Forrest runs so long and so far that he grows this massive long beard. If you are going to make your own Forrest Gump Running costume you could buy a pair of red gym trunks, a yellow shirt, tube socks and of course, the Bubba Gump distressed red ball cap.
Forrest Gump Jenny Hippie Costume – Outfits She Wore
“Run, Forrest! Run!”
If you’re going to your Halloween party with a date, why not Jenny? Jenny is the blonde hippie bombshell that Forrest is in love with in the movie. There are a lot of ways you could do a Forrest Gump Jennie costume because she had a lot of different looks in the movie but the flower child hippie style was probably the most memorable.
Forrest Gump Jenny Costume – What to Wear!
Jenny had a more traditional school girl look when her and Forrest were younger. The most common Jenny look was her hippie flower child look when Forrest was in the army. Jenny turned into a party girl with her shiny disco outfit during her druggie days. Jenny returned to Forrest she was a little more cleaned up and reserved, she wore a off-white wedding gown and had flowers in her hair. If you can’t afford a Jenny costume you could always sing naked on a bar stool with an acoustic guitar too!
You Need Jenny Blonde Hair for Your Costume!
For your Forrest Gump Jenny costume you are going to need a long blonde wig. She did have short hair in the wedding of the movie, but her longer blonde hair is more memorable for your Halloween costume. Shoulder length blonde hair or longer would give you the Forrest Gump Jenny look.
Forrest Gump Lieutenant Dan Taylor Costume
“I am living off the government tit! Sucking it dry!”
Lieutenant Dan is one of the most memorable characters in the whole movie. Creating a Lieutenant Dan Halloween costume isn’t that hard and it makes a great pair with a Forrest Gump costume. A wheel chair would be a great prop for this costume if you have one.
To be Lieutenant Dan you need a white wife beater tank top, a button up shirt and a pair of green army cargo pants.
Lieutenant Dan wears a red bandanna and has very messy and carefree brown hair. Lieutenant Dan has a mustache and goatee in the movie, you can draw one on with brown pencil or buy a fake one, it’s up to you. A cigar would also be another prop to consider for your Lieutenant Dan Halloween costume.
