Joy Costume How-To Guide

How to Make a Joy Outfit

1. Blue hair.

Painting of JoyJoy’s blue pixie cut is a little extreme for day-to-day life, so stick with a wig. EBay and Amazon have blue wigs you can style yourself while sites like Etsy have wigs already made to match the cut seen in the movie. Since Joy has sparkly hair, add some glitter to the wig.

Shop for blue wigs now to get your Joy costume ready!

2. Face.

Yellow face paint, especially with glitter, should be lightly applied to your face with special care taken around the eyes. If painting is too much, try finding a mask online.

3. Skin.

You have two choices here: paint or sleeves. Depending on when and where you plan on cosplaying, take the weather into account. A thin, yellow turtleneck top can save you a lot of time painting your arms. Remember, your skin needs to breathe so do not paint anything that won’t show.

Buy a yellow turtleneck to cover your arms!

4. Dress.

Start with the easiest part of the costume – a pale green dress. Make sure the bottom is flowy so you can twirl. Joy’s dress has little blue starbursts patterned over it, so get some fabric paint and stencils too. Add glitter paint to make it pop!

5. Footwear.
