Sandman, Lord Morpheus (also known as Dream of the Endless) is the creator of all dreams and nightmares. He is a lively, ambivalent character, and excellent fodder for costume representation. Halloween is approaching, and I have a feeling we’ll be seeing many more characters from The Sandman appear this year.

We’ve put together a simple list of essential pieces that you can find (or buy) to create your own version of Lord Morpheus!

Creating a cosplay from Sandman Closet: The Trench Coat

We start with the trench coat. It’s the most famous piece of clothing Dream wears on the show, and the easiest to identify when sharing it with his combat boots. You can’t have a racy boy Morpheus without a soft cloak to roll big. While many people may have a classic black trench in their wardrobe already (I’m looking at you, ’90s grunge kids), we have some great options for sandman costumes. Here is a more expensive option:

There are also plenty of inexpensive options on Amazon, depending on your style and preference.

Create a Sandman Wardrobe Cosplay: Shoes

You must love an anthropomorphic creature that can pull off a kitchen set of combat boots for every occasion. Going to battle? military boots. Going out to catch nightmares? military boots. Are you walking through hell to find your lost tambourine? fighting. shoes.

They’re every man’s shoe, and we live for how well Morpheus pulls them off in every scene. Most ’90s grunge kids will have these in their wardrobe, but Amazon has some pretty easy-to-find shoes. If you want to get fancy, here are some cool Steve Maddens that feature a pointed toe and a matte finish:

There are some super pricey versions that are worthy of fashion and that can be purchased without breaking the pocket. Amazon Specials will get the job done:

Create a cosplay for Sandman’s wardrobe: Sapphire

This accessory can be skipped if you like, but it is much easier to find or create than a Sandman helmet. If you want to keep this disguise simple but still easy to identify, Dream’s Ruby is an excellent way to add some shine to your cosplay. We found this beautiful version online:

This less expensive version will get the job done too, but the extra embellishments are a bit…more in terms of looks. Both would make acceptable wardrobe versions of The Sandman!

Creating a cosplay from Sandman Closet: The Sand Bag

Another accessory that can be included or left out, but Dream Sand is an excellent addition to a fancy dress wardrobe. These bags are easy to make or find, and they are inexpensive to purchase. We found a very simple but beautiful version on Amazon:

Throw it all together

Add to these standard pieces some hair gel, a black T-shirt and some skinny jeans, and you’ve got the look. Are you ready for a rock concert, a night out at the cabaret, or a step toward our dreams like Lord Morpheus, Dream of the Endless. Remember to glow and hang on the edges of each room, and most of all don’t forget to feed the pigeons.
