DIY Lord Farquaad Costume Guide

Lord Farquaad is a short and ruthless ruler who will do whatever it takes to achieve his aims. The Lord Farquaad look is regal and has a red and black motif.

Lord Farquaad Cosplay Costume

The Lord Farquaad costume is predominantly red. You need to wear a red royal outfit. If you can’t find one, you can also wear a big red shirt with puffed sleeves. The shirt has to be big enough to reach about halfway down your thigh. On your feet, you’ll need a pair of black boots.

For the head, first, you’ll need a black wig. Then, put on a red Renaissance-style hat on top of the wig. If you can’t find one, a red beret works as well. If you want to go the extra mile, you can also use some makeup to copy Lord Farquaad’s five o’clock shadow on his chin.

A Lord Farquaad costume isn’t complete without a red royal cape. The cape should fall down to your ankles to match Lord Farquaad’s. Next, you’ll need a black leather belt to put around your waist. It would be best if the belt had a gold buckle with a blue center, like Lord Farquaad’s costume. Finally, you’ll need a pair of red gloves to wear on your hands. If you want to look even more like the character, you can use gold paint to match the gold pattern on Lord Farquaad’s shirt, hat, and gloves.
