D.B. Cooper's look was characterized by a few key accessories.

  1. Sunglasses: Sporting aviator sunglasses or any dark, non-reflective sunglasses will give your costume the enigmatic D.B. Cooper touch.

  2. Briefcase: Carry a briefcase to hold the prop "loot," and even add fake money spilling out for added effect.

  3. Parachute: This prop can range from a simple backpack to a more authentic-looking parachute harness. Make sure it is compact and comfortable to wear.

  4. Airline ticket or boarding pass: Create a mock airline ticket or boarding pass with D.B. Cooper's name on it as a unique prop to hold or keep in your pocket.


Beyond Outfit and Accessories

To solidify the D.B. Cooper vibe, adopt a mysterious, elusive demeanor, and let the legend's story be the captivating talking point of your costume.


Creating a convincing and captivating D.B. Cooper costume requires a mix of simple, sophisticated elements from a bygone era and some creative accessorizing. Combine a 1970s-era businessman's suit with aviator sunglasses, a briefcase, and a prop parachute, and you'll be the toast of any true-crime enthusiast's Halloween or costume party.
