15 Easy Cartoon Characters to Dress Up As

Are you planning to attend a costume party, planning your Halloween costume early, or are simply looking to add fun to your wardrobe? One way to do all that is to dress up as your favorite cartoon character. 

Dressing up as your favorite cartoon character is not very difficult. It requires imagination and creativity.

But if you have no idea where to start, here are some of the easy cartoon characters to dress up as.

1. Dora the Explorer

Dressing up like Dora the Explorer is easy. The essentials are a pink t-shirt and orange shorts, or a skirt with yellow sneakers and white socks. For more authenticity, style your hair into Dora’s classic bob with bangs. 

You could complete the look with Dora’s signature accessories: a purple backpack and a map. If you have a plush monkey toy, you could carry it as Boots the Monkey. 

2. Lisa Simpson

Lisa is one of the best characters in the long-running adult animation, The Simpson. To dress up like her, start with a strapless red dress and a faux pearls necklace with a yellow pendant.

You could mimic her spiky hairstyle with a wig, or style your own hair into a tall spiky ponytail. Make the look more authentic with red Mary Jane shoes and a saxophone prop. 

3. Peter Pan

Peter Pan’s classic forest green tunic or shirt paired with brown leggings is probably the easiest costume to come up with.

Accessorize with a thin brown belt around your waist and green hat with a red feather tucked into the band.

You could complete the look with a toy dagger, and you will be ready to fly off to Neverland. 

4. Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse is another easy cartoon character to dress as. Start with black shorts and a red short-sleeved shirt.

Add large yellow buttons down the front of the shirt for authenticity. Wear white gloves on your hands and large yellow shoes on your feet.

You could craft Mickey Mouse ears using black felt attached to a headband, and draw his signature features, like his round black ears and nose, onto the felt.  

5. Carmen Sandiego

If you decide to go as the international thief, Carmen Sandiego, the essentials are a high collar red trench coat and a matching wide-brimmed red hat.

Pair these with black pants or leggings and black boots. You could accessorize with black gloves and dark sunglasses.

6. Esmeralda

To go as Esmeralda, from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” you need a white off-the-shoulder blouse with billowy sleeves and an ankle-length patterned skirt.

You could accessorize with a colorful scarf tied around the waist. For more authenticity, consider styling your hair with loose waves adorned with flowers or ribbons. 

7. Jessica Rabbit

A Jessica Rabbit costume requires a form-fitting red sequin dress with a sweetheart neckline and high slit, a faux fur stole, long purple gloves, and red high heels.

You should also probably style your hair into voluminous waves or curls and add a deep side part. For makeup, go for a sultry look with bold red lips and dramatic eyeliner. 

8. Aladdin

For Aladdin, start with a white long-sleeved shirt, a waistcoat, and beige or cream loose-fitting pants. Complete the look with a red fez hat with a tassel and colorful sash around your waist. 

9. Cinderella

The highlight of Cinderella’s outfit is the light blue ball gown with a fitted bodice and full skirt. The dress should have delicate details like sequins or lace. Go curly hair, preferably blonde, and a jeweled headband or tiara. Don’t forget crystal-like heels. 

10. Cruella De Vil

The villain from 101 Dalmatians wears a white faux fur coat and a black form-fitting dress. You have to style your hair half-white half-black to achieve the iconic look. Embrace your villainous side with red lipstick, black heels, and long black gloves.

11. Queen of Hearts

You can go as the Queen of Hearts from “Alice in Wonderland” by wearing a red, black, and white dress with a heart motif.

Alternatively, wear a red dress and make a DIY collar with a deck of cards. A black and red heart-shaped tiara or crown will also achieve the “queen effect.”

12. Pinocchio

Bring Pinocchio to life with a beige long-sleeved shirt, red shorts, white knee-high socks, and black shoes.

You could craft the long nose from cardboard, or use face paint to create the illusion of a growing nose.

13. White Rabbit

The rabbit is supposed to be white, so should your outfit. Look for white, long-sleeved shirt and white pants or leggings. Add a black waistcoat or vest on top, and wear a pocket watch on a chain around your neck.

Use white or pink felt to create rabbit ears or buy a bunny ear headband. Wear white gloves and white shoes or shoe covers. Paint your face white and add pink accents to your nose and cheeks for more authenticity. 

14. Olaf

To go as Olaf from “Frozen,” look for a white sweatshirt and sweatpants. In the middle of the sweatshirt, craft Olaf’s facial characteristics, the eyes and carrot nose using felt or fabric paint. For authenticity, wear a large snowflake or snowman headband on your head.

15. Elsa

For Elsa, Princess of Arendelle, you will need a light blue or icy blue floor-length dress with long sleeves. Consider a dress with sparkly or sequined accents to mimic Elsa’s magical ice powers.

Add a sheer cape or shawl in a matching shade of blue, preferably with glittery details. Style your hair into a loose braid or bun with loose strands framing your face. Accessorize with a tiara or crown adorned with snowflakes. 

For makeup, opt for frosty blue eyeshadow, glittery highlights, and a pale lip color. With these enchanting details, you will embody the elegance and grace of Queen Elsa!
