Piper Chapman Costume Guide

Genshin Impact Venti Cosplay Costume B Edition

Price: $89.99

Piper Chapman, the main character of the Netflix TV series Orange Is the New Black, is an inmate at a women’s prison whose time behind bars slowly reveals a darkness to her psyche that she never knew she had.

To survive, she finds herself manipulating others, and over time she takes on a spoiled and self-righteous attitude, revealing that prison can perhaps bring out a selfish side in anybody.

Still, Piper’s time in the Litchfield Penitentiary does cause her to reflect more on her life and the way she treats other people, making for a riveting and exciting story.

Generally, the actual color and design will be made to more closely resemble that of the mannequins than the character.

How to Dress Like Piper Chapman from Orange is the New Black


Piper has dirty-blonde shoulder-length hair, as well as a long fringe of bangs brushed to one side of her head. During her time in prison, her hair takes on a somewhat unkempt, choppy look.

You can dye and style your own natural hair to get a similar look to Piper’s, or you can use a light blonde cosplay wig.


Piper has a pale complexion and dark bags under her eyes.

You can use a light concealer or foundation to get a similar appearance, and for the eyes, use a dark eye shadow to add a dark shadow beneath them for a tired, angry look.

Orange Prison Jumpsuit:

As a woman living behind bars, Piper naturally wears orange prison garb, hence the TV series’s title. Her orange inmate uniform is made of heavy fabric and consists of a full-body suit (a large orange top and tie-on orange pants underneath) with short sleeves and a baggy white t-shirt beneath it.

For the white shirt, you can find t-shirts and tank tops at any retail website or shopping mall.


Piper wears a tag on her prison uniform which bears her name and other identifying information, just like the other prisoners at Litchfield Penitentiary.

The tag uses a metal clip and is red and white in color. You can print your own identification tag and insert it into a blank tag holder to clip to your uniform.

Piper also wears plain black slip-on rubber shoes, just like all the other prisoners. You can purchase similar shoes from most retail websites and shoe stores.

Finally, as one last detail, purchase a screwdriver to carry with you. Piper accidentally steals a screwdriver from the prison and it becomes contraband, resulting in a search to recover it so it won’t end up being used as a shank by one of the inmates.

You can find screwdrivers from most retail websites and hardware stores.
