Do you want to amaze everyone with an Arthur costume at your next cosplay event? Well, you’ve come to the right place because we’re here to help you nail his look with ease!

Arthur Timothy Read was born on May 25, 1988. He is the eldest child and only son of Jane and David Read, as well as the older brother of D.W. and Kate.

Most know him as the titular protagonist of the Arthur television and book series. He is an 8-year-old aardvark who lives in Elwood City alongside his family and friends.

I personally find him to be a relatable and endearing character who navigates the ups and downs of childhood with curiosity, kindness, and a love for learning. In this way, he is quite relatable.

A character who can resonate with audiences of all ages is rare, so let’s do him justice with this cosplay!

You’ll Need:

  1. Yellow Sweater
  2. White Dress Shirt
  3. Blue Jeans
  4. Ears
  5. Round Glasses
  6. Red Sneakers

Get started with a simple white dress shirt to act as the base. Follow up with his signature yellow sweater on top.

Arthur Cosplay Costume

Arthur’s adventures and interactions with his friends and family have a heartwarming effect on me, and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. After all, you’re here too, right?

He is known for his athleticism, mediocre piano skills, high intelligence, and fourth-wall awareness, so integrate those aspects into your performance. Cosplay is about portraying the character, but you can always put your own unique spin on him.

So embrace the genius within you and compel everyone with this Arthur costume. Luckily, this is a pretty simple ensemble you can put together in no time.

On that note, why not attempt an Arthur Series Group cosplay? Get your friends to dress up as Jane Read, David Read, D.W. Read, Kate Read, Dave, and Thora Read to crash any party with you.

About Arthur Read From The Arthur Series

Arthur is a mediocre pianist, but we have seen how he can truly play when he is motivated. Even then, it’s relatable how even he forgets to practice the piano at times.

He showcased average to well-developed capabilities in school most of the time, but he would occasionally receive help from the brain. Things like this really remind us of our own childhood.

This character remained polite and friendly with everyone throughout most of the series. But even he tends to break his promises to his parents, such as not touching the computer during his mother’s tax season, cleaning up his room, and practicing the piano!

What is the most famous quote from Arthur?

1. “That Sign Won’t Stop Me Because I Can’t Read.”

2. “That’s Your After-School Snack? No Wonder Those Are Your Husky Pants.”

3. “I Lose Everything.”
