Who hasn't heard that famous Tarzan yell? Even if you've never seen any of the Tarzan movies, maybe you have seen comedienne Carol Burnett do the yell. If you have seen a movie or TV version of Tarzan, you've probably also imagined swinging through the jungle on vines, as he did. Perhaps you would like to become Tarzan, even if only for one costume party!

The Tarzan stories were set in the late 19th century; 1888 to be exact, not in prehistory. And the character Tarzan lived in a treehouse, not a cave. But early movie costume designers decided to dress him in a loincloth of fur, as they imagined any primitive human might wear. What Tarzan does have in common with the stereotypical image of a caveman is his lack of exposure to any "modern" technology. 

If you go back and read the original Tarzan stories, written over a span of more than 50 years from 1912 to 1970, they seem, at best, quaint. They reflect the prevailing world-view of their day. At worst, many modern readers would consider that world-view racist, sexist, even "species-ist." Edgar Rice Burroughs describes his creation as "the embodiment of physical perfection and giant strength." The "noble savage" Tarzan is superior to the apes because he is human; he is superior to African tribesmen because he is white. Females, both ape and human, are objects of reverence and in need of protection. Yet, Tarzan thinks animals are nobler than humans; they kill only from necessity, for food or self-defense. Humans, conversely, kill from greed or hatred or jealousy, emotions unknown to animals. 

The character of Tarzan has been popular and enduring. He's been the star of 26 books, 89 movies, 2 radio serials, and 8 TV series, both live-action and animated. At least 16 different actors have played the role. The best-known actor to play Tarzan was a 5-time Olympic swimming gold medalist. Johnny Weissmuller starred in 12 Tarzan movies from 1932 to 1948, more than any other actor. 

Then there is Jane. She's marooned, along with her father and three others, at the same spot where Tarzan's parents were marooned more than 20 years earlier. Tarzan sees her and instantly falls in love with her. She starts out as a damsel in distress, but grows into a strong, adventurous woman. She's from Baltimore, Maryland, and would dress in the Edwardian fashion of a proper young lady of the early 1900s. 

So, you say you and your date want to play Tarzan and Jane for your next costume event? Choose whether you want to be the original characters from the books and early movies, or the more modern version. 

The original characters stepped out of an earlier era. Choose a caveman costume for Tarzan and a southern, Victorian or Edwardian gown for Jane. Build a tent of branches and large leaves, and bring a picnic of succulent fruit. Enjoy it together as Jane teaches Tarzan how to speak. (In the books it's a French sailor who teaches him, not Jane. And the stereotypical "Me Tarzan, you Jane" phrase is in the same category as "play it again, Sam." It's one of those movie lines that everyone thinks is a direct quote, but really isn't.) The Wikipedia page on the Tarzan movies explains it and gives the bit of actual dialogue that may have originated it.

The image of Jane dressed in primitive (and scanty!) garments comes from the 1981 film Tarzan, The Ape Man. Bo Derek (of 10 fame) played Jane. If you want to be this version, choose a prehistoric costume for Jane as well as for Tarzan.

Whichever characterization you choose, practice that yell!

HalloweenCostumes.com How To

Tarzan Costumes

If you have to dress up a lot in your day-to-day life, you might not want a super fancy costume once Halloween rolls around. Sure, being a prince or princess can be fun, but it can also be high maintenance. This year, let your less civilized side out with a Tarzan or Jane costume! You can hang out with some apes, explore the jungle, or just be the wildest one at the party. They're perfect for a couple's costume or even a group costume, if you can convince some of your friends to be gorillas. So put on your leopard skin, grab a spear, and start practicing your yell!

Men's Tarzan Costume

Men's Tarzan Costume

Most artistic or film renditions of Tarzan, including the Disney version, picture him clad solely in a loincloth. Since he lived in a tropical jungle with a bunch of animals, we think it makes sense that he probably wasn't too concerned about fashion. If you want to stay true to the early films or you just like the idea of wearing minimal clothing as a costume, you should consider a Tarzan costume like this one. You'll look fierce whether you're planning to swing through the jungle or head out trick-or-treating.

Men's Tarzan Tunic

Men's Tarzan Tunic

When you see Tarzan wearing a full tunic, it's usually made of leopard skin, and it's usually a little tattered and torn. Since he probably didn't have access to a sewing machine, it makes sense that he didn't take the time to make full-coverage leopard-skin onesies. Besides, the clothes' ragged look matches his rugged look! Get ready for your next Halloween party with a Tarzan tunic. It will really help you let out your wild side. After all, they can take Tarzan out of the jungle, but they can't take the jungle out of Tarzan!

Jane Costumes

In the first original novels, Jane is a typical damsel in distress who needs to be saved all the time. But as the series progresses, she develops into a character who can more than take care of herself in the African jungle. If you want to dress up as Jane, you can take your outfit in many different directions. Will you be the unfortunate shipwrecked lady who mourns when she loses a glove? The daring adventuress who wants to brave the jungle and find out everything she can about gorillas? Or maybe Tarzan's capable partner who is ready to survive in the wild? No matter what you choose, we know you'll be able to find an outfit that works for you!

Jungle Jane Costume

Jungle Jane Costume

In almost every book or movie featuring Jane, she falls in love with Tarzan by the end of the story. And in most cases, she stays with him in the jungle. We imagine that she probably left behind the fashion of the time for something that makes a living in the wild a little easier. After all, who wants a petticoat getting in your way when you're swinging through the trees? Live out your happy ending as queen of the apes with a Jane costume!

Jane the Hunter Costume

Jane the Hunter Costume

Some versions of Jane portray her as an unfortunate shipwreck victim, while others characterize her as a safari expert and wildlife aficionado. If you'd prefer to look more scientific than savage, you might like a Jane the hunter costume! It's just the thing you need if you're still looking for your perfect raised-by-apes mate. We recommend that you start practicing your hooting and hollering now. Being friends with the monkeys is always a good idea!

Tarzan and Jane Couple's Costumes

Tarzan and Jane's relationship is a story that has been retold many times throughout the decades. The books, comics, TV shows, and several movies all have a slightly different approach to their romance. We think you're entirely justified in coming up with your own version! Perhaps your Jane is the one who saves Tarzan from peril. Maybe your Tarzan makes friends with the leopards instead of hunting them. While you can style these characters however you want, their most recognizable outfits imitate the wardrobe of a caveman. No matter what you decide to do, we have plenty of options to help you out!

Tarzan and Jane Accessories

We think the accessories you add to a costume (or leave off) can make or break it! Something as simple as the right wig can take your outfit from good to great. Different facial prosthetics can determine whether your character is funny or scary. Whether you want to build your own outfit or add some spice to a preexisting costume, we have something you'll like. When you're looking to accessorize a Tarzan or Jane ensemble, you have some choices to make. Will you carry a toy weapon? Do something with your hair? Maybe you'll want to invest in some primitive bone jewelry. With our selection of Tarzan and Jane accessories, it's all up to you!

Tarzan Wig

Tarzan Wig

We think it's pretty obvious that Tarzan doesn't take a lot of time for primping (at least by human standards). Gorillas do groom each other, but they're mostly making sure to get the bugs out of each other's hair. We don't want you to ruin your carefully crafted hairdo for a wild man look, so we recommend trying a Tarzan wig! And we don't know for sure if Jane remembered to pack a hairbrush when she moved into the jungle treehouse, so it might be appropriate for your wild woman costume, too!

Tarzan Spear

Tarzan Spear

Tarzan is known for being a fantastic tracker and even better hunter. Although he is plenty strong in his own right, he is still human. Therefore, weapons help give him an even footing with his animal adversaries. After all, when you don't really have claws or fangs, you need something sharp to give you an edge! This Tarzan spear will help you defeat any leopard you come across while you're on the prowl for Halloween candy. Just remember our advice, "Double-check the coast is clear before you catapult your spear!"

Bone Accessory

Bone Accessory

Obviously, bones are pretty useful when they're in our body, holding us up. However, they're also great for any jungle-dweller to have on hand. You can make them into tools or weapons, for one. And if you have the appetite of a prehistoric human, you can even crack them open for some delicious marrow. Add a bone accessory to your Tarzan outfit to make it feel a little more primitive. (Plus, you'll have a tasty snack at the ready all day long!)

Hairy Feet Sandals

Hairy Feet Sandals

We can't imagine that Tarzan's feet are terribly well-groomed. We know he prefers to run around barefoot in the jungle, and it's not like he has access to salon services! However, if you're wearing a Tarzan costume, it might be dangerous not to wear shoes. We think these hairy feet are a great option if you want your outfit to be more accurate but you also want to protect your toes. They'll be the perfect finishing touch to your wild man outfit!
