Plus Size Running Forrest Gump Costume
Everyone faces some really tough times in their lives and may need to just break things up with something new. Something to get their mind off the troubles that they’re dealing with in order to find some peace and, eventually, face those troubles head on and find their way to a bit of bliss again. Now, we all deal with this in different ways. Some of us need to dive head first into an endless vat of ice cream. (That is our personal favorite, even for when we’re having perfectly normal days, actually.) Others may need to distract themselves with some good old fashioned physical activity. Get those limbs moving, the heart ticking, and press that solid reset button in the brain.
Now, if you’re like ones of the most beloved characters of all time, you might take that ‘little bit of physical activity’ a bit too much to heart and take off running. Maybe you’ll feel like running all the way across town and think, Hey, how about I just keep going? until you’ve run across the state, and then to the ocean, and then right across to the other one. We’re not quite sure how many times good old Gump ran across the country, but it was long enough to earn himself one heck of a lustrous beard… and a cultish following of a few dozen street runners.
We don’t precisely recommend that exact tactic. While it did seem to do Forrest some good, that is a major time commitment. We, however, have a short cut in mind for those of you who’d like to jog in his shoes for at least a few blocks. You can do exactly that with this Running Forrest Gump costume. The faded yellow polo shirt with green trim, the somehow bright white crew socks and iconic red running shorts and matching Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. hat will almost completely transform you. But, of course, we’re including the hardest work of all… the three-year length long brown wig and beard will transform you fully and more than earn you the Jenny of your dreams.
