If you can spot the actual jacket he wears for the film, that’s good. Otherwise, sporting a similar-looking jacket can also help you cop the look.

Ricky Bobby is also wearing a pair of leather jeans, with a wide blue bar on the front, red piping, and white bars on both sides, as though to copy the colors of the American flag. He also has curly, ginger-ish brown hair and a smug look. As for the makeup, you don’t have to do any outrageous face art since Ricky Bobby does not sport any of it. 

Let your partner dress Ricky’s wife, Carley, with you to take your cosplay to the next level. And you can keep up the Talladega Nights theme and make couples costume at Halloween.
