Probably the easiest out of all of the Inside Out group is Joy! Her outfit is ridiculously easy but some sites would have you pay upwards of a $100 just for her dress! That’s not even taking into account the makeup and shoes/tights that you might want to use for her nor the wig! Check the Inside Out Cosplay Costume out here that I found!
Dress: The $100 dress is even more ridiculous when you can easily purchase a dress exactly like it here! Just use some fabric paint to create the exact same pattern. Besides the blue flowers, Joy also has white crisscross patterns like a spiderweb. It’s difficult to see in pictures due to her “glow” but you can see this up close via this picture below:
Shoes: If you are going to a convention, then walking around barefoot or in a pair of yellow socks is really not going to cut it. My suggestion are to get some very discreet yellow ballerina shoes.
Tights: Here I really don’t recommend trying to get away with socks or gloves for the skin. It’s going to be incredibly obvious if you have long gloves on or if you attempt to make it work with socks alone. Tights could work instead but aren’t necessary. Fortunately, Joy’s color is closer to a lot of lighter skin tones, so even if your paint wears off on your hands it won’t be immediately noticeable.
Makeup/Wig: Use the same principles as in the No Sew Cosplay: Disgust From Inside Out article. Complete the look with a wig like this and style it with some hair gel, making sure especially to spike it up in the back or to use a ponytail to get that spiked up look if it is too difficult to get it to stay. I recommend using lots of glitter and adding it to most of your outfit in order to recreate the “glow” that Joy has as compared to the others.
And once you are done you should happily, cheerfully start waving to all your lovely fans!
