Wheres Wally fancy dress can be a fun and silly costume to wear which will be instantly recognisable by everyone and also take you back to childhood days of reading picture books. Despite Wally being a boy this is also a very popular fancy dress idea for girls as well.
How to make a Where’s Wally Fancy Dress Costume?
There are a few key items you need to put together for this fancy dress outfit. Wally always wears some very striking clothes. He is famous for his red stripy top. This can either be a jumper or any kind of red stripy t-shirt.
On his head he wears a bobble hat with a fluffy red bobble on top, a white main body and a red rim. You can either buy one of these hats or if you are feeling particularly creative, and you want to boast to your friends about your homemade outfit, you can even try to knit one yourself.
For the bottom half of the fancy dress outfit Wally wears bright light blue trousers. There are different spins you can take on this part of the costume. Men tend to just model the look exactly and wear fully length Wheres Wally style trousers. Women often get a bit creative with this part of the costume. I have seen people where blue hot pants, or short shorts, or a blue skirt matched up with long red striped stockings. Either way the look is instantly recognisable as part of the outfit and it’s always a good idea to get creative as you can with your fancy dress costumes.
Wally always sports a very distinctive style of glasses. He wears black frame, round lens glasses. These are easily available online but harder to find in the shops. You can just go for any kind of geeky fancy dress glasses or Harry Potter style spectacles.
For the hairdo in this costume, and you only have to go this far if you really are a perfectionist, then Wally has a big tuft of brown hair peeking out from underneath his wheres wally fancy dress hat. So if you have the hair for it you can just brush it out yourself or otherwise go for a wig or just get creative and stick a brown piece of hair style fabric, or carpet or something, so it pops out of the bobble hat.
One accessory that is often missed when you see wheres wally fancy dress costumes is the walking stick. Despite being a seemingly young man Wally take a stick with him wherever he goes. so get your own walking stick, or perhaps a fake one as a real one might be a bit dangerous to carry around.
