Chanticleer from Rock-a-Doodle

Chanticleer (voiced by Glen Campbell) is the Elvis Presley of roosters. Pretty literally. His character from the 1991 animated film Rock-A-Doodle is clearly based on the beloved late crooner, complete with a plume that he dyes black after making it big in the city. And just like Elvis he has both a simple country look and a slick city look, both of which are easily adapted for either male or female cosplayers.

For Chanticleer’s country look you’ll want a white button down shirt, a black belt, jeans, and either yellow boots or costume chicken feet, depending on the look you’re going for. You’ll also want to style your hair in a pompadour and use red spray dye or opt for a long red wig to simulate his plume, as well as his red, green, and purple tail. If you want a more chicken-esque look you can also get a fake beak.

If you want Chanticleer’s City look you’ll need purple pants and a matching belt, a red cowboy shirt, and either a black pompadour wig or a long black wig. You can use the same chicken feet as his country look as well as the belt and the beak, if you’re using one. If you wear boots, however, you’ll probably want to sub in some black leather ones to match the belt. And of course no big city crooner would be complete without his microphone.
