Happy Face Costume

Follow these simple directions to create a Happy Face costume.

Happy Face Costume

Time: 10-30 minutes

Effort: Easy - no sewing required


  • White gloves
  • A yellow shirt
  • Yellow pants (sweats will work the best)
  • Black shoes (optional)
  • Yellow face paint
  • Black face paint
  • Yellow hairspray (optional)

Instructions: Dress child in yellow clothing. Paint face and hair yellow. Add black circles around eyes and draw a smile around the mouth for an instant happy face! The black shoes and white gloves complete the outfit! It is simple, fast, and cheap! Hint: If you can't find the perfect yellow clothes, you can dye some white pants and a T-shirt. Just buy some yellow dye.

Tips: If you can't find yellow hairspray, you can use face paint in the hair. It works well; it's just harder to wash out. (But it does come out.)
