Whether sent on an undercover reconnaissance mission or sent to prevent a disaster, the crew from "Mission Impossible" are always prepared to do what it takes to succeed. If you would like to dress up as a member of the "Mission Impossible" team, you can easily choose one of the characters and make your own costume at home.

Ethan Hunt

Top operative Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, is the most recognizable character from "Mission Impossible."

Wear a black T-shirt, black pants and socks, and a pair of black boots. Wear two black or olive drab canvas belts. You can also include a few small black pouches on the belts (such as cell phone cases) so that it resembles espionage gear. You can finish off the costume with a pair of dark sunglasses, leather gloves and a dark military-style canvas jacket. Carry a black plastic handgun.


A trusted compatriot of Ethan Hunt, Luther, played by Ving Rhames, has been helping Ethan on many impossible missions.

Wear a pair of black pants, shirt and socks. Wear a pair of dark-colored boots. Wear a black leather jacket, or black canvas jacket if you don't have one. Wear a black winter cap or watchman's cap. Luther doesn't carry as much gear as Ethan, but is still ready in case of trouble. Carry a black plastic handgun.


Transportation expert Declan, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, is also a trusted member of Ethan Hunt's team.

Wear black or gray pants, dark socks and military style boots or shoes. Wear a pair of dark gloves with the fingers cut off and a gray shirt. Wear an olive drab military-style field jacket.
