Steve Zissou Cosplay

Dress like Steve Zissou from The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou;

Steve Zissou's Uniform: Steve wears a simple uniform consisting of a short sleeve button up shirt which is darker in the button area and matching pants. You can use regular blue shirts or scrubs if you don't want to invest in the costume. Also, don't forget a red beanie.

Steve Zissou's Adidas Shoes: Steve's shoes are modified versions of adidas 1959 Rom. After 13 years of constant requests from fans of The Life Aquatic, adidas finally produced 100 pairs of limited editions adidas Zissou sneakers, which as you guessed sold out in a couple of minutes. As they were produced only 100 pairs, it is not easy and cheap to get these sneakers. You have to open your wallet a bit wide for these shoes. However, you can use adidas Superstar sneakers with blue strips just as good with little modifications.

Steve Zissou's Model Belafonte: Steve's boat's name is Belafonte.  Finding the model of this boat is as hard as finding adidas Zissous and even much more costly. If you are serious about your Steve Zissou cosplay, we dropped a link for you. Otherwise, you can go for another similar model boat.
