How to Dress Like Fear from ‘Inside Out’
Fear has a small thin curl of purple hair atop his head. Otherwise, he’s pretty much completely bald. You can recreate this look in your own costume in a number of ways. You can attach a tall purple pipe cleaner to a purple wig cap or shower cap and curl the pipe cleaner to resemble Fear’s wacky hair. You can dye your own hair purple with temporary coloring and style it using gel. Or use a purple wig instead if you prefer.
You can buy pipe cleaners from most craft stores and retail websites, and shower caps as well. Use thick hair gel or hairspray to form the purple wig hair strands into a curly shape.
Complexion and Face:
Fear has purple eyebrows and lighter purple skin. You can use a mild lavender makeup concealer or Halloween makeup crayon to get a similar effect, or skip this step if you’re in a hurry.
You can purchase concealer from the cosmetics counter at any drugstore, or you can order it online. Check out Halloween stores or party stores for purple makeup crayons.
Fear dresses like a bit of a nerd with his purple dress pants, baby blue long-sleeved dress shirt under a black-and-white houndstooth patterned vest, and his large red bowtie gives him a touch of bolder color. Most of these clothing items can be purchased online. Browse a Halloween store to find a goofier-looking bowtie.
To complete your costume, you’ll need a pair of basic black loafers just like Fear, and a purple ball like the purple crystal memory balls he collects for Riley in the film.
For the purple memory ball, you can use a transparent purple rubber bouncy ball and carry it with you.
