Inside Out Anger & Joy Costume Tutorials
You didn’t think I’d let a Halloween pass without a costume tutorial did you? The husband and I got a little emotional this Halloween…presenting Inside Out’s Anger and Joy costume tutorials!
Here’s what you’ll need to make Anger’s costume:
- Brown dress pants
- Dress shoes
- A red and gray striped tie
- White, collared button-up shirt
- Wig or hair dye/chalk
- (Optional) Red, elbow-length gloves or body paint
My husband already owned a tie, so we decided to use that. If you don’t own one, I’d recommend purchasing a red or gray one, then using gray or red fabric paint to create the zigzag pattern.
We used the below YouTube video to create his facepaint. The process took me about 1-1.5 hours to paint on his face. I did one practice round before the final paint. We used Snazaroo facepaint. The paint worked well and washed off easily. To ensure we’d have enough paint, we purchased a big pot of red in addition to the face-painting set.
Here’s what you’ll need to make Joy’s costume:
If I’m being honest, I loved having the body suit. It helped keep me much warmer than I would have otherwise been. It did make using the restroom slightly challenging, but nothing that was too terrible.
While the wig I got wasn’t the best quality wig I’ve ever purchased, for the price it worked perfectly I thought. It even had a slightly sparkly quality which I felt was kind of fitting.
Painting the star-burst/firework type designs on Joy’s dress was a simple process. I just pulled up a reference image of her and used the body paint to apply the design. There’s nothing symmetrical or rigid about the shapes, so that makes them easy to “recreate.” I’ve always had great results with the Jacquard fabric paint.
Let me know if you have any questions about how we put the outfits together. Overall they were quite simple and everyone loved them!What did you dress as for Halloween this year? Let me know in the comments.
