Burger King

“The King” or the “creepy” King was the Burger King mascot from 2004-2011. While some people loved the silliness of the ad, a lot of people found the updated mascot creepy. Whether you were a fan or found him unsettling, dressing up as The King is a great royal cosplay!

It’s almost impossible to find the actual prop head that the company used but there are masks that give you the same look. Once you have the mask, the rest of the costume is a fairly standard king costume. A red velvet coat trimmed in white fur, a gold tunic over a white high-collared shirt, and red trim at the bottom added with fabric paint. Finish off the look with white compression pants, covers for your shoes to make them into tall back boots, and a heavy gold chain. It’s good to be the King!

King George III from Hamilton

King George III is the main antagonist of the musical Hamilton, opposite Alexander Hamilton. Neurotic and menacing, the monarch threatens the revolution. After the war, he teases the colonies, questioning their ability to lead and mocking John Adams as president. He sings “You’ll Be Back,” “What Comes Next,” and “I Know Him.” Jonathan Groff, who you may recognize as the voice of Kristoff from¬†Frozen, originated the role on Broadway.

Jareth the Goblin King

Jareth (David Bowie) is the Goblin King who is summoned by Sarah to take her infant brother away. He gives Sarah a chance to get her brother back if she can make it through the Labyrinth. Along the way he distracts her with song and dance but it’s his choice of pants that distracts viewers.

King Vitaman

King Vitaman might be royalty, but he’s not nearly as popular as the Count or Cap’n. No one’s had breakfast with the king in many years, yet he somehow manages to stay on the shelves.
