Therefore, I feel it’s my duty to provide wearable costume alternatives that are not only comfortable, but are characters people can easily identify.
So today, I give you the emotions from the Disney Pixar film, Inside Out.
In my opinion, this costume is all about the make up. You can get away with a chartruese-colored top (I found mine at Savers), the eye look, and a yellow ball to serve as a core memory. Don’t forget a contagious smile and you’ve got yourself a completed costume.
I’ve provided a video make up tutorial below but if you don’t have the time, here’s the look.
For this wearable costume, a purple button-up dress shirt and black or grey sweater vest will get the point across. To go the extra mile, here are a few ideas:
- Fill those eyebrows in with a black eyeliner or eyeshadow to make them more animated. Slant them downward if you can to give off a scared or worried expression.
- Using a black or purple pipe cleaner from the craft store, attach one end to a headband that matches your hair color. Bend the other end so it looks like the antenna sticking out of his head.
Like last year, my dear husband once again allowed me to dress him up just for you amazing readers. His embarrassment is your gain. Enjoy his angry photo.
This character is probably the easiest costume to put together. A white dress shirt and some kind of red tie would perfectly match this angry expression. However, without the rest of the characters beside you, outsiders might not be able to identify you as easily as the other emotions. So in that case, painting yourself bright red would make it more obvious…then again, that might not go with the whole “wearable” theme of this post.
This costume is perfect if you live in a cooler climate. Try sporting a thick white sweater with blue pants or leggings. Wear your hair down (if you have longer hair) and put on some circular, dark-rimmed glasses. As I suggested with Fear, darkening and slanting your eyebrows downward with eyeshadow will define and animate the sad look.
Walk around slowly carrying around your blue core memory. If the mood strikes you, a nice touch would be to randomly fall down and lay there (face down of course) until the moment passes.
As you can tell from my dramatic posing, I had the most fun with Disgust (Just imagine Disgust if she were six months pregnant.).
I found the green dress and the scarf at Savers. I added the 60’s-inspired hoop earrings and went crazy with the dramatic makeup. Below is a photo tutorial for the look.
Start off with a white base on the eyelids. This will make the bright colors even more pigmented.
With your finger or a stiff, flat brush, pat plenty of bright pink eyeshadow on the eyelid.
Take some watermelon green eyeshadow and add that into the crease with a fluffy blending brush. Adding some light brown shadow beforehand will help the colors transition and blend better.
Adding a light baby pink or white color to the inner lid and tear duct will make your eyes pop and appear brighter.
Wing out your eyeliner using a black liquid or gel liner. To make the look even more dramatic and crazy, pat some pink glitter onto the eyelid.
Finish the look by smudging a green eyeshadow (and green glitter, if you have it) onto the lower lash line. Add mascara, glamorous false eyelashes and there you go!
