Del Boy and Rodney Trotter Fancy Dress Costumes

Only Fools and Horses Fancy Dress Costumes

By Mark Nobes

Alright, Dave? Now here's a pukka idea! If you're a duo/couple looking for a great fancy dress idea for an 80s or TV themed event/party, then why not dress-up as the instantly recognisable Derek (Del Boy) and Rodney Trotter from Only Fools and Horses - you know it makes sense!

I will show you some low-cost clothing items that will allow you to create your own costume in a moment, but let's start with the official fancy dress costumes, which will give you a complete and instant look.

The official Del Boy costume by Smiffys includes the iconic sheepskin coat with an Only Fools and Horses logo badge. Also included is a red polo neck style top, tweed style flat cap, fake cigar and chain necklace. It's everything you need to become Derek Trotter - lovely jubbly!

Two adult sizes are available; 38-40 and 42-44. Just add some grey or brown trousers to complete your look.

You can also buy Only Fools and Horses costumes directly from Smiffys, but you should definitely check the links above first if you want the best prices - just a suggestion!

If you're planning on dressing-up with a friend or partner, then the taller half of the partnership should most definitely go as his younger brother, Rodney. The official costume also comes in the same two sizes and includes the army style camouflage jacket, mock shirt and a wig. Just add some stonewashed/light wash denim jeans.
You may like to create your own Rodney costume, and you can purchase this low cost combat jacket from Amazon. Wear with a lumberjack style check shirt, preferably red. Add some retro trainers to complete your look.
