Hiccup Viking Costume from How to Train Your Dragon 2

Updated on August 21, 2014

Dress up as Viking Warrior / Dragon Rider Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon

This Halloween, due to the success of How to Train Your Dragon 2, there are likely to be many young (and perhaps not so young) Viking dragon rider costumes, like those of grown up Hiccup, voiced again by Jay Baruchel.

The viking warrior / dragon rider costume will be popular with young boys, teens and perhaps even a few 20 somethings. There looks to be an official squirrel flying Hiccup costume for younger boys, but nothing for teens.

Figuring out Astrid's girl Viking Warrior costume was a bit of a challenge. Hiccup's is proving to be even more so, with the custom leather and iron armor. Read on to see what I've figured out so far.

This lens is in progress. Check back to see it develop.

Hiccup's Costume for HTTYD2

Hiccup's costume has changed quite a bit from the first movie. In the first, he almost looked a bit like a shepherd.

In this second movie, he is now a Dragon rider, explorer and inventor. His clothes and armor allow him the ability to fly or at least glide through the air like a flying squirrel.

Hair now has several short braids on the right side.

Until the official dragon rider helmet is available for Halloween, this Roman Spartan Warrior Helmet was the best that I could find which resembles Hiccup's helmet, at least in the shape (somewhat).

Using paper mache, or thermoplastic sheets and paint you can modify this helmet into Hiccup's flying one.
