Raoul Duke lives life on the seat of his pants. During his search for the American Dream, his hotel room might get trashed, his lawyer may just go off the deep end, and he will definitely have to rely on pure Gonzo Journalism to get him through his next big story. But then, we all need to search for our own version of the American Dream, right?
This Raoul Duke Costume is a deluxe costume inspired by the character from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It comes with everything you need to head out on your trip to find the American Dream, including a shirt, pair of shorts, his patchwork jacket, hat, and sunglasses. To finish the whole look off, it even comes with a cigarette holder.

- Wearing this to the PHISH Halloween show in VegasBy Vespalina | September 24, 2021Height 6'3 | Weight 190-ish | Size LargeI bought this costume for my friend because we're going to see Phish in Las Vegas for Halloween this year (2021) and he wanted to do the "Fear and Loathing" thing...so he gets to be Raoul Duke and I'll be going as Dr. Gonzo.
Let me start by saying that I sew clothing and costumes and usually prefer to make costumes myself whenever possible. I usually don't expect great quality from most pre-made halloween costumes, because I know how to sew and would rather make my own (I'm kind of a stickler for cosplay authenticity)...but this Raoul Duke Costume was made really well for the price.
Yes, the shorts, jacket, and hat are made from polyester, but after I pressed everything with an iron, they looked really good.
The shirt has a really awesome pattern printed on it, however, it's not stretchy at all - I don't know if it's some kind of cotton or a poly-cotton blend, but there's absolutely NO give whatsoever. It would be nicer if it was made of a t-shirt material just for a bit of stretch. The shirt did fit my friend, but it's a bit tight across the shoulders if he puts both arms forward. (Just for reference, he normally wears a 44-Long jacket).
Because my friend will be wearing this costume to a concert and will need somewhere to stash his wallet and cell phone, I will actually be adding pockets to the shorts. I will also be putting in heavier elastic in the waistband and perhaps adding a drawstring to the waist just to make sure those shorts stay put while we noodle around dancing at Phish.
We also ordered an XL sized costume just to be on the safe side, but the Large fit just fine. The XL shirt fit my friend just slightly better than the Large but for some odd reason the XL Shirt was actually SHORTER than the Large Shirt. We returned the XL costume.
The accessories (glasses and cigarette holder) were a nice bonus. I think the cigarette holder must have been improved from earlier editions of this costume where people stated it wasn't the right type of cigarette holder. The one that is now included with the costume looks more like an authentic TarGuard cigarette filer (the kind Hunter S. actually uses). Because I am a bit of a snob when it comes to cosplay authenticity, I actually purchased a separate TarGuard cigarette holder to complete the costume. I probably would have bought real RayBan shooter glasses too, if they weren't so darn expensive.
Overall, this is a really awesome costume for a night out, for cosplay, or for attending a Con.Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?
