Police Costume Ideas
It seems like everyone wants to be a police officer at some point in their childhood. Well, that, race car driver, and princess seem to be the most common. It’s easy to see why many people look up to them! Many of them are working hard to keep us safe in our communities. Of course, being a cop is pretty hard work, so we’d like to give a shout out to all the officers who rock the uniform and keep us all safe from danger. It's certainly not a glamorous job, like the movies and television would have you believe. That doesn't mean you have to give up on your dreams completely, though. When you choose to wear one of our police office costumes for Halloween, you get that rare and golden opportunity to relive some of your childhood fantasies. And if you have kids, then they get a chance to play out their dream job in a cool outfit based on what they want to be when they grow up!
Law enforcement comes in many different shapes and sizes. That can make choosing the perfect costume a little bit tricky. Do you want to be a super-serious cop, enforcing the rules at any costume party? Or do you want to be a wacky, off-the-wall version of a campy television character? Are you going to be one of those bushy mustache cops or a clean-shaven rookie? Well, since we're the best costume experts on the internet, we've decided to lend a hand in your search for the perfect police costume. Check out this list of police costume ideas, from authentic to down-right silly, to get those gears in your head turning.
Adult Police Costumes
A lot of us do dream of becoming a police officer when we're young. Of course, as we get older, the pressures of real life set in, opinions change, and maybe you forget about that dream. It's sort of the same with firefighters and superheroes, too. They seem like a great idea when you're a kid, but it's hard to keep on that path as an adult. That's what we have costumes for, right? One of our primary goals is to provide adults with outfits that help them live out their dreams, and we have a large selection of adult cop costumes for just that reason!
Men's Police Costume
Let’s start with the base. If you want to look like a real police officer, then you’re going to need to take this seriously! This men's police costume brings a look that comes straight from the squad. At this point, we have to remind you that impersonating a cop can incur some legal repercussions, so be sure to know what the laws are like where you live. Usually, it's okay to dress up in a costume as long as you're not actually trying to deceive anyone into believing that you're genuinely affiliated with a law enforcement agency. As long as people know that you're looking the part for a party, you should all clear to wear this realistic looking outfit.
Dress up might be a fun game that kids get to play on the regular, but we have news for you. It's not just for kids! Even adults like to play pretend, and it's why Halloween is one of the biggest times of the year for adults. We all get to dress up as our favorite characters from the television, funny characters from pop culture, and even our dream jobs from when we were kids. We've dedicated ourselves to creating some awesome costumes to help you live out this fantasy, including police officer costumes for adults. Wearing a police Halloween costume lets you dress up like a cop, even if it's just for the party. This particular version helps you keep cool and comfortable, since it comes with a pair of shorts and a short sleeve top.
If you're looking for something a little more realistic, perhaps a little bit more…tactical, then something that mimics the look of the special forces might just be the perfect option for you. We carry a ton of costumes that take their inspiration from SWAT-style outfits. This women's tactical police costume combines that high-grade, strategic sort of look with a classic look. Just suit up and you'll be ready to head to the party as the first responder on the scene. Just make sure you equip yourself with some of our police costume accessories to round out your outfit.
Realistic Police Officer Costume
Some people value authenticity above all else! They want things to look just like the real thing when they wear a costume. We get it, and that's why we carry a whole selection of elite, high-quality costumes that really look like the real thing. If you're trying to approach your police office costume in that fashion, then you'll want to consider this realistic police officer costume. It's one of our Made By Us costumes, which means it's an exclusive design crafted by our expert costume designers. We've created some really great options for just about any occasion, so we recommend checking them all out!
Police Woman Costume
If you want that ready-for-anything look, then we recommend wearing one of our jumpsuit style costumes. They're an all-in-one costume that's designed for a form fit, and this police uniform jumpsuit happens to feature a tactical look to match. It even comes with additional holsters to add a realistic touch to the whole outfit. Just make sure to accessorize with a nice pair of aviator sunglasses, which is a must for anyone trying to create a police cosplay.
Cop Halloween Costume
Finally, we have this classic, city cop look to round out our police officer costumes. This cop Halloween costume is a nod to the classic look seen in many metropolitan areas across the states. The real defining feature of this exclusive costume has to be the jacket. Cops often break out the jacket during colder weather, and this costume will have you looking ready for work in the fall.
Sexy Police Costumes
Then again, maybe realism isn't really what you're looking for in a police costume. If you're going to dress up for a costume party or a night out, you might as well wear something a little saucier than the typical costume for adults. Perhaps you want something to live out a fiery fantasy of yours. Well, we're no strangers to sexy costumes. We carry a whole assortment of outfits that range in modesty level to help sate your appetite for something sultry. We even have a few choice options within our selection of police costumes. The ones below are some of our best ones!
Sexy Cop Costume
First up is a sexy costume for the guys. That's right! Guys can be sexy too. We're pretty sure this isn't approved by any official dress code, but some guys just need to show off their biceps. After all, you've worked hard in the gym to sculpt those fabulous muscles, so it's only right that you should show the fruits of your labor! This sexy cop costume for men really lets you showcase your physique with the muscle shirt top that's designed to look like a police uniform. It's a spicy way to protect and serve in your neighborhood.
Sexy Police Costume
Although many sexy costumes are about showing skin, some are just about having a form fit. This sexy police costume for women does a great job of letting you show off your curves, since it's made out of a spandex blend material. You definitely won't find any real cops wearing this kind of uniform when on duty, but maybe it's about time to shake up the classic dress code in law enforcement.
Kids' Police Costumes
What do you want to be when you grow up? That's a question that every child gets asked...oh, about a bazillion times. A lot of kids will just blurt out the first thing that comes to mind. It might be a pro wrestler. It might be a superhero. We even heard a kid claim that he wants to be a lobster with a stone-serious face (he's quickly become one of our personal heroes). One job that always seems to come up when you ask this question to children is the humble police officer. Yep, kids often look up to the people who help keep the community safe, so it's really not surprising that many kids want to be a cop when they grow up. Well, we're all about helping support kids and their lofty dreams. Even if they grow up and decide to do something else, they'll always remember that one Halloween they dressed up in a kid's police costume for some trick or treating.
Girl's Police Costume
This girl's police costume might look a little familiar! We carry plenty of kid versions of our adult costumes, and this costume is modeled after one of our most popular women's costumes. A lot of kids want to be just like the adults, so having a costume that matches what theirs can be a fun experience for any kid. That means your girl can have a cool, tactical look...and you can even do matching parent-child duo when you pair this outfit with our women's costume.
Boy's Police Costume
Here we have another realistic take on the traditional police officer outfit in sizes that your little can wear. This boy's costume brings you the navy blue uniform, badge and tie, complete with everything your child needs to look ready for the academy. Once your child has it on, he may even start investigating high-profile cases around the house, like figuring out who ate the last cookie from the cupboard before snack time.
Toddler Police Costume
There's just something completely adorable about a toddler in uniform! Your little one might not be ready to join the force just yet—after all, he just started walking. Still, he is completely prepared to take a few cute pics while wearing this toddler police costume. It might even inspire your little one to grow up to be one of the boys in blue, since it has a realistic look based on the many uniforms of real cops.
Police Halloween Costume
Finally, we have a cute police Halloween costume for girls, which combines a cool and comfortable dress style with the navy blue uniform. Our costume designers created this costume to give girls more options when dressing up like an officer. It even comes with a belt that helps you cinch the whole look together.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is one serious place. It takes plenty of study, years of experience, and plenty of perseverance to solve some of the toughest cases. Of course, not everyone has what it takes to devote their lives to learning the job, but you can always pretend for your next costume party. Our FBI costumes take their inspiration from the signature uniform worn by real FBI agents. We'll walk you through some of our options to choose from below, which even include your favorite pretend FBI officer, Burt Macklin.
FBI Agent Costume
Part of the allure of dressing up like an FBI agent is the simplicity of their outfit. While typical police outfits have a ton of layers—including jackets, shirts, big hats, and sunglasses—you can have an authentic FBI agent look with just a simple, lightweight jacket and a cap. This particular FBI costume brings you that look, which you can wear with any shirt and pants to complete your costume. It's one of the easiest ways to look like an agent.
Burt Macklin Costume
Of course, all of our costumes are just for pretend purposes, but that does bring us to one more special mention: Burt Macklin. He's the ultimate pretend police officer. Some say he's the best there ever was. Some say he has an odd resemblance to that Andy Dwyer guy from Parks and Rec. We just say that he's kind of our hero, even if he just a goof on a TV show, pretending to be a police officer to amuse his wife. This costume helps you become the iconic character, so you can investigate the deadly case of Janet Snakehole.
