The Grass is Greener

We think it'd be pretty great to be a prince. Every day, you could be entertained by a legion of dancers. You could get served the finest foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your parents could select your marriage partner!

Wait. Hold up. That last part... we're not really into that. Having your parents set you up with your wife could be a sketchy situation. Our parents' tastes? Well, we're not sure we'd want to go on a date with someone they set us up with, let alone spend the rest of our lives with them. It's really no wonder Prince Akeem set up shop in America to live life a bit, get a job at McDowell's, and try to find his true love!

Fun Details

Now, you can attempt to find true love when you wear this Men's Coming to America Akeem Costume! Inspired by the iconic Eddie Murphy movie from the 1988 movie. Our costume designers wanted to capture the look of the regal prince without capturing the princely price an outfit like that must cost! This is what they came up with. It's a simple black jacket that comes with a faux fur shawl that's designed to look like leopard skin. The necklace is recreated with gold foam pieces. The medallion ties around your neck with ribbon and the matching crown is also made out of foam and features plenty of faux gems. To finish the whole look, the costume comes with a white satin bow that fits around your neck.

Time for McDowell's

Whether you're looking for the perfect wife, or just for a job at the McDowell's in Queens, this costume will have you prepared to venture out into America to seek your future! Just remember to keep an eye on Semmi! He's bound to get into some trouble if you don't keep!
