An Animal Crossing: New Horizons player recently took to Reddit to showcase their excellent Wilbur dodo bird costume, just in time for Halloween.
An Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan recently posted photos of their meticulous Wilbur costume, just in time for Halloween. The endearing dodo bird is an NPC pilot for the social simulation game’s flight service, Dodo Airlines, and accompanies players when they wish to visit other Animal Crossing: New Horizons islands.
As the name suggests, many Animal Crossing: New Horizons characters are animals with anthropomorphic characteristics; however, this doesn’t stop fans from recreating their favorite villagers’ looks through cosplay. Fans of ACNH have dressed up as bug-obsessed Flick, pink octopus Marina, the extremely rare feline villager Raymond, and more. Although a special occasion or holiday isn’t required in order to indulge in cosplay, the time is ripe for dressing up as the game’s NPCs with Halloween just around the corner.
Reddit user RallyeReadhead recently shared their Animal Crossing: New Horizons costume idea: Wilbur the Dodo Airlines pilot. The user explained, “If you need a costume idea, I’ve got you covered!” Their costume is a spot-on rendition of the dodo bird; complete with Wilbur’s signature ACNH Dodo Airlines uniform, red necktie and aviator sunglasses. RallyeReadhead even included a black belt with a silver buckle, which is almost identical to Wilbur’s very own belt.
RallyeRedhead’s garb is not the only nod to the Animal Crossing: New Horizon airplane pilot. Wilbur is also covered in blue feathers with yellow legs – all of which RallyeReadhead faithfully recreated through blue pants, blue-dyed hair and yellow high-top sneakers. As a final, meticulous touch, the user included the dodo bird’s pilot headset. Seeing as Wilbur and his energetic coworker, Orville, look nearly identical to each other if not for a few fashion accessories, RallyeRedhead (and any Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan who wishes to do a Dodo Airlines NPC cosplay) can also feasibly dress up as Orville.
With Halloween coming up, some might be feeling the pressure to pick an impressive costume. Dressing up as Wilbur (or Orville) is a decently accessible – but creative – idea for the holiday, especially for those who are celebrating Halloween with fellow Animal Crossing: New Horizons players. That said, the popular Nintendo game has dozens of characters that present unique costume choices even beyond the Dodo Airlines workers; so perhaps those celebrating spooky season will see Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers out and about in real life.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on the Nintendo Switch.
