The Walter Sobchak costume is taken straight from the cult classic, The Big Lebowski. Walter Sobchak is played by the famous actor, John Goodman.

Walter Sobchak is best friends with Jeffrey Lebowski, more commonly known as “The Dude.” Walter Sobchak is also The Dude’s teammate while bowling.

He gets caught up in a brief life of crime when the pair end up keeping the money they weren’t supposed to. Walter Sobchak is a very confrontational person who made the decision to do that.

Whenever he gets mad and wants to settle an argument, he usually wields a handgun or his crowbar, making him seem violent. In the end, it is decided that Walter Sobchak likely has PTSD from being a Vietnam War veteran.

About Walter Sobchak

Walter Sobchak is the best friend of the main character of The Big Lebowski, known as “The Dude.” He is also on his bowling team, and the pair are commonly seen hanging out at the lanes.

Where The Dude seems to be very flippant and chill most of the time, Walter Sobchak tends to be more serious and has a mean temper.

He is quick to anger and resorts to violence. It is speculated that this is due to PTSD from being a war veteran.

Walter Sobchak ends up living a life of crime alongside The Dude. Comedy ensues as neither one of them is clearly prepared for what that means.
