Halloween’s almost here, but there’s still time to get an Attack on Titan costume for a last-minute holiday cosplay. Here’s a look at some of the options if you need fast shipping in time for October 31.
Be sure and double check the shipping estimates before buying, since dates can change between when you see this article and when it was first published. But this is a great resource to help get you started on that last-minute Attack on Titan costume.

Know the Look You Want
The first step is to figure out how you want your costume to look. Are you wanting a classic uniform or a final season one? On Reddit, one person said they got this amazing set from Spirit’s website with fake ODM gear.
Of course, Spirit doesn’t have Amazon-level Prime shipping, so your results on getting this from Spirit may vary. But the ideal costume will of course have the khaki jacket, the white pants, a green cloak, and brown boots. You can vary the shirt and still get away with a generic Attack on Titan look. Add a red scarf if you’re wanting to be Mikasa. Carry around a potato to be Sasha, or wear glasses and a brown wig to be Hange. Slight variations can turn any costume into your favorite character, like a blonde wig for Armin or a brown wig for Eren.
Unless, of course, you’re wanting a Season 4 uniform. Then you’ll need a completely different look. There’s the long green cloak that we see Levi, Mikasa, and others wearing. And there’s also Eren’s very casual coat and grey shirt look that would be pretty easy to replicate at the last minute.
Meanwhile, the Survey Corps’ new uniform is black with silver detailing.
OK, now that we’ve narrowed all that down, here is where you can get some of these at the last-minute.
Classic Attack on Titan
The classic Attack on Titan look is going to be the easiest to replicate at the last minute. If you don’t want to spend any money, you can just get a khaki jacket with a white or yellow shirt beneath it, white pants (or jeans if you just don’t have anything white) and tall brown boots. Print or draw the correct emblem and you’re set! You won’t have the ODM gear, but if you’re really creative you can fashion your own.
Or there are also a lot of options you can still grab on Amazon as long as you’re using Prime shipping. Everything on this list shows Prime shipping delivery before Halloween (at least in certain sizes) as of the time of this article’s publication. I’ll also share any alerts that Fakespot Guard is giving about the sellers.
Khaki Jacket Options
First there’s the jacket. This may be your simplest option, but note that it’s from a new seller without many seller reviews so far.
Another similar option is here, although only some sizes are available by Halloween. This seller is approved by Fakespot Guard.
Or be really lazy and go for a Cardigan Zip Hoodie that pretends to be a jacket and shirt all-in-one. This one has 125 ratings but also a new seller alert from Fakespot.
Green Cloak Options
If you want to be really simple, just wear a Shingeki no Kyojin green cloak. This first one only has two ratings so far and is a new seller. You might be better off choosing this one, which has 94 ratings but still has a new seller alert. The reviews for this one are pretty positive and the photos look good too. It comes with a necklace.
A cheaper version is here, but this one only has 5 ratings and also has a new seller alert. An even cheaper version with a new seller alert by 120 ratings is here. This one also comes with a necklace. Another option is here in case the others are out of stock. And another one is here. (So far all of these have new seller alerts from Fakespot, so be sure to read the most recent reviews carefully before purchasing.) The reviews for this last one are good,
If you want to be extra cozy on Halloween and it’s cold out, you might consider just getting the blanket survey corps green cloak. It’s available from several different sellers who all say that it can be delivered by Halloween. Fakespot Guard gives them all “new seller alerts” too. This seller’s blanket cloak has the most rating (87) and it comes in two different sizes. Reviews are positive.
Season 4 Costumes
So you’re wanting something a little more recent?
Well, the classic Eren cosplay in his casual coat can be purchased on Ebay. Some examples are here and here, but shipping is pretty high for these. A more expensive one with free shipping is here. The only problem with these is that they are next to impossible to get shipped by Halloween. 🙁 But you can use the photos as inspiration for creating your own. It’d be pretty simple to do. All you really need is a long black trench coat or a long black cardigan, black pants, and a long-sleeved grey shirt. Then wear a brown wig tied back in a bun. Amazon sells Eren wigs (such as this one) but getting them by Halloween is tricky unless you pay extra for faster shipping. I’d suggest skipping the Eren-themed wig entirely and just look for a similar brown-haired wig that you can tie back in a bun yourself and get fast. Look for a black cardigan kind of like this one, but in a size that can ship to you by Halloween.
Here’s a good look at a season 4 uniform with ODM gear. But like the others on Ebay, it will take a long time (long after Halloween) to ship, so just use the photo as inspiration for your own costume. You might even go extra cheap and just tape on duct tape to resemble the costume. You can still get foam swords by Halloween though to make your look complete, so that’s a bonus!
