Ace Ventura Costume Breakdown:
“Aaaall Righty Then!” Let’s get into it.
Ace Ventura’s Cosplay Costume is rather eccentric but then again, this might not be on the streets of Miami. His main attire includes red and black vertical striped trousers, a white vest, a loud floral Hawaiian short, and black military-style boots.
To finish off your DIY costume, you will need the famous Ace Ventura wig (which is a little bit like an Elvis Wig), and a red parrot (as seen in the movie posters).

Ace and Melissa Robinson (played by Courtney Cox) are at a mental hospital pretending that Ace is a retired footballer with mental health issues.

Who is Pet Detective: Ace Ventura?
Ace Ventura is Miami’s most famous Pet Detective, played by the infamous Jim Carrey. Carrey made his name as one of the main cast from In Living Color, the 80s comedy show. He has since gone on to greatness and starred in films including The Mask, Cable Guy, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Grinch and, of course, The Riddler in Batman.
But let’s get back to business. In the first Ace Ventura film, Ace is assigned the task of solving the theft of the Miami Dolphins mascot, Snowflake the dolphin. The theft happens just before Super Bowl Sunday.
Utilising his mix of slap-stick zany comedy, craziness, and unorthodox detective tactics, Ace manages to bumble his way to solving the theft and saving the day for the Miami Dolphins.
Carrey reprises the role once again a year later in the film Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. In this film Ace sports a pair of swap green pants for his outfit.
As we follow Ace Ventura on his crazy quest to solve the mystery of the stolen Dolphin’s mascot, he treats us to a number hilarious rib-breaking one-liners, including:
“If I’m not back in five minutes… just wait longer.”
“Lovely party. Pity I wasn’t invited.”
“Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.”
“I gotta go guys! I gotta date with your mothers!”
“Is it number one or number two? I just want to know how much time I have.”
“Excuse me. I’d like to “ass” you a few questions.”
“Holy testicle Tuesday.”
“Aaall righty, then.”
“Like a glove…”
