Cole Sprouse's Halloween Costume Is Milo From 'Atlantis: The Lost Empire' & Here's How To Get The Look Yourself
The Internet is full of amazing Disney costumes, from feminist princess outfits to homemade Nightmare Before Christmas group attire. Now, get ready for so much Disney throwback action that your Disney Channel Original Movie-loving heart won't even be able to handle it — because former Suite Life Of Zack And Cody star Cole Sprouse recently posted a photo of his Halloween costume, and it is absolutely everything. The Sprouse twin, who reportedly studied archaeology at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, went as the most appropriate Disney character for his major: Milo Thatch from Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
The 2001 film never quite reached the popularity as, say, Frozen — but it clearly holds a special place in Sprouse's heart. In the movie, Milo is an cartographer who works at the Smithsonian, and is fascinated by the legend of Atlantis. Of course, it's not actually a legend: Milo soon discovers that Atlantis is very much real, and goes to defend it against the people who want to exploit its resources. (Heavy stuff for a kid's movie, but hey, Disney also gave us The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, so the dark themes are all relative.)
If you recently watched the film, you'll know that Sprouse's costume for Milo is completely on point — but just in case you haven't, here is a pic of Milo from the film:
And here is Sprouse's Milo costume:
This costume is so simple, yet so effective on Sprouse — it must have something to do with his already Milo-esque hair. Want to steal Sprouse's idea and make a Milo costume yourself? Here are some of the things you will need:
In this case, the bigger the better. Make sure to go for wire rims, like the pair above, which you can get on Amazon.
A Beige Turtle Neck
A beige turtleneck, like this one from Nelly, is the perfect thing to layer underneath a jacket.
A Green Jacket
Milo was ahead of his time as an explorer, and, apparently, in fashion. This J Crew "field mechanic" jacket works for a Milo costume, and also for being ridiculously cute all other days of the year.
Cargo pants, like the ones above from JCPenney, make for the comfiest Halloween costume ever. Plus, you can fill all empty pockets with candy — never a bad thing.
Thanks for the brilliant idea, Sprouse: this is one throwback we can totally get behind.
