The Lovebirds

Jibran from The Lovebirds

Jibran (played by Kumail Nanjiani) is the boyfriend of Leilani in the Netflix romantic comedy The Lovebirds.  Jibran and Leilani’s relationship seems to have run its course at the beginning of the movie, but they then find themselves on the run after a deadly encounter with a bicyclist and a mysterious man with a mustache.  Jibran wears several costumes throughout the film, but by far the most fun is the gold metallic jacket and “Professional Bead Hunter” t-shirt he dons in the middle.  While finding the exact shirt may not be possible, look for a fun Mardi Gras-themed t-shirt to fit the bill.  If you’re looking for something more sophisticated, Jibran’s colorful borrowed tux and gold mask are a great choice.

Leilani from The Lovebirds

In the Netflix romantic comedy The Lovebirds, Leilani (played by Issa Rae) is the girlfriend of Jibran.  The couple decides to end their relationship early in the film, but they then become embroiled in a complicated conspiracy involving a sex cult and cold-blooded murder.  You have a few choices when it comes to emulating Leilani’s costuming, from the stylish dress and leather jacket she begins with, to the outlandish unicorn outfit she wears, and the formal dress and masquerade mask she dons while infiltrating a secret society.  It is difficult to find a unicorn hoodie made for adults that matches the look of Leilani’s from the film, but with a little hot glue or a sewing kit, you could easily attach a unicorn headband to the hood of a galaxy print hoodie.  Otherwise, a unicorn Halloween costume might also do the trick.
