How To Dress Like Hagrid

Rubeus Hagrid is the groundskeeper of Hogwarts and everyone’s favorite half-giant, all-heart custodian. As a man who has faced his share of persecution and judgment, Hagrid cares for even the most feared mythical creatures of the wizarding world. A true reminder to never judge a book by its cover.

To make your own DIY Hagrid costume you are going to need a few essential accessories: a fearsome fur coat, banded trousers, worn boots, and a waistcoat to name a few. Don’t worry, we have everything you could possibly need!


Hagrid (Harry Potter) DIY costume guide

1. COAT – If you’ve been looking for a chance to wear a showstopping full-length fur coat then here it is! We started our DIY Hagrid costume with this beautiful faux fur jacket as the focal point of the whole look.

2. SHIRT – The Renaissance style works perfectly for this particular outfit, just like this red linen shirt with a laced collar.

3. BELT – Add a black leather belt with a large silver buckle. Consider going a size-up as you will want to wear this around your midriff. 

4. WAISTCOAT – Again, this Renaissance-style laced vest is perfect for recreating Hagrid’s shabby and disheveled appearance.

5. TROUSERS – Rounding out the Renaissance theme are these banded cuff trousers in a dark brown.

6. BOOTS – Your choice of footwear is up to you but you will need a heavy-duty pair. If you already own an old and worn pair of boots then that would be ideal.

7. KEYS – As the keeper of Hogwarts’s expansive grounds, it stands to reason that you are going to need a heavy set of keys, a set that looks like they could open any number of mysterious and ancient doors.

8. WIG – Finally, no Hagrid costume would be complete without his legendary beard and regal mane of hair. 


Rubeus Hagrid is one of the most beloved characters from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Despite his gruff exterior, Hagrid is known for his gentle-giant nature, love of magical creatures, and loyalty to friends and companions. Serving as the Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts, he is often one of the first people students meet when embarking on their wizarding adventure.

As a half-giant, Hagrid has faced persecution and discrimination for his heritage. This has led him to feel a deep affinity for animals and mythical creatures that are often spurred by other members of the wizarding community.

His steadfast bravery and loyalty to Harry Potter and his friends made him a vital partner in the quest to defeat Lord Voldermort for good.
