It’s hammer time! Go straight back to the early 90s with an MC Hammer fancy dress costume. With his flashy dance moves and those iconic baggy harem pants, the musician took the world by storm with numerous top 10 hits during 1990 and 1991, including “U Can’t Touch This”, “Have You Seen Her” and “Pray”.

There are four styles of costume available for adults, and numerous suppliers selling them across the web, but they vary greatly in price and design. So which one should you choose?

Budget MC Hammer U Can't Touch This Costume


MC Rap King U Can’t Touch This Costume
Yellow jacket and black harem pants

This costume looks very much like the one that the musician wore in his “U Can’t Touch This” video in 1990, and the price is very cheap for a fancy dress costume. The jacket will fit up to 43″ chest and the pants will fit up to 46″ waist. However, you may want to spend a bit more on a higher quality costume, as it’s not the best quality and reviews across the web are mixed.

MC Hammer All-in-one Costume for Men


Now you’ll be hard pushed to find a better value costume than this. It’s being sold by the very reputable and well-established Smiffy’s fancy dress on Amazon, in an XL size for for 46″ to 48″ chest. In terms of styling it actually looks pretty decent, and for the price, represents great value.

Old School 90s Rapper Costume for Men


Old School Rapper Outfit by California Costumes
Large/XL 42-46″ Chest. Cropped jacket and parachute pants with gold metallic detailing.

In terms of price and styling, this old school rapper outfit is definitely good value. The parachute pants are ridiculously baggy, which is perfect for an MC Hammer look. The costume is being sold for £29.99 on many sites, but the supplier below on Amazon is one of the cheapest I’ve seen and the price includes free delivery. However, I also recommend checking ebay and Escapade for the very best price.

90s Video Star Rapper Gold Costume


1990 Video Star Rapper Costume by Bristol Novelty
Jacket, Mesh Shirt and Trousers with Attached Belt

Although described as an “80s video star costume”, this is definitely a 90s costume which imitates MC Hammer’s clothing. It wasn’t until 1990 that the musician started having hits, although he did release singles in the late 1980s, which failed to chart here in the UK.

This is the most expensive of all the costumes featured here, but it’s also the best rated by customers across the web. It includes the jacket, trousers,mesh shirt and belt, but the other accessories are not included. I thoroughly recommend checking the suppliers on ebay, where you’ll get a cheaper price than below.
