Best Unique Harambe Costumes

So, you’ve decided to dress up as Harambe for Halloween this year. An excellent choice, and a smart one. We’ve already realized the fatal flaw – many other people are going to try and steal your genius idea and dress up as a gorilla this Halloween. So how can you make sure that your own costume is the best, while not being too expensive?

If you haven’t already, you can check out our list of the best Harambe costumes in general on the front page in order to get an idea of what most people are going to be buying or making this Halloween. Not to say they were knocking our own Harambe costume list, but we are very aware that those ideas are going to be the most used ones, simply because they are the easiest wants to come up with.

So, How can you blow away the crowd with the best, cheap, and uniquest Harambe costume for Halloween?

Crank Up The Funny

All you really need to do is have any sort of Gorilla related costume and people will understand that you’re referencing Harambe. But why not branch off from there? For example, you can get this unique costume:

HouseHaunters “Get Me Outta This Cage” Gorilla and Cage Costume Kit



And say you’re Harambe’s revenge, or some variation of the idea that the Gorilla has gotten his payback on the people who imprisoned and killed him.

Alternatively, you could pick up one of these outfits, called Gorilla riding costumes.




The best thing is about both these options is because they are Gorilla tailored, not just focused on specifically Harambe. Meaning you can use them for years down the line (and really get your money’s worth).

Go with a mask instead of a full body suit.

Masks are cool, masks are cheap, but most people are going to consider them half-assing an outfit if they are all you wear. But fuck those guys.

If you get a good quality Gorilla mask and wear a Harambe shirt (you can just wear a black shirt if you don’t want to shell out 20 bucks for a shirt with Harambe printed on it) you can get you point across without putting too much effort into it. I’ve personally found that there is a fine line between a funny Halloween costume and one where you just come off as trying too hard, and the amount of effort you put into it usually has a direct correlation.

My top recommendation for Harambe masks:

Two Bit Roar Gorilla Mask



Alternatively, print out a  picture of Harambe and literally wear that on your face.

DIY Harambe Costume

last but not least, if you just want to make sure that your costume is the most unique Harambe available, all you need to do is try and make one yourself. There are a variety of gorilla costume guides easily accessible on the Internet, and being able to crank out your own outfit would allow you to make your own special variations give it that personal touch that Harambe deserves. The only drawback with this method is going to have to take quite a bit of time in order to do it, and as we all know, time is money. I would only recommend going this route if you really want to be the most unique Harambe around, and have multiple locations on which you can wear the costume.

Otherwise, I just don’t see how it could possibly be worth it.

Alternative: KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid)


Go with my #1 costume pick.

The California Costumes Goin’ Ape Bodysuit
PROS: READILY available from Amazon,  ships in a few days, and is one-size-fits-all. It also looks pretty damn good.

CON: You may need to add something extra to give it an edge.buy-on-amazon1


My idea? Pair it with some angel wings, really drive home the idea of being Harambe’s spirit.



Your best way to be unique this Halloween as Harambe, while still getting a big laugh out of people and drawing attention, to go with an alternative cost that incorporates a gorilla in a funny way. The next best bet is to buy some sort of mask can go for a low effort, maximum cool look. Thirdly, you can try and crank out your own customized gorilla outfit.

If you want my opinion, I’d spring for the Gorilla Cage Outfit.
