Kimmy has shoulder-length bright auburn hair in bouncy waves on her head, and her hair has no bangs at all although it does frame both sides of her forehead. Sometimes she wears it straight down, but usually she keeps her wavy style.
To recreate Kimmy’s look for your costume, you can dye and style your own hair or wear an auburn-colored cosplay wig. Use hair mousse and a brush to style your hair.
Kimmy often has a very large, wide smile on her face, thrilled to be experiencing life to the fullest after escaping the doomsday cult, and she wears pink lip gloss and a pale concealer most of the time.
You can get these makeup supplies from most retail websites and drugstores.
Kimmy wears a wide variety of different outfits throughout the course of her TV series, which are always in bright colors and bold patterns.
One of her most well-known outfits consists of neon pink skinny jeans, a white blouse with long sleeves and a rainbow confetti pattern on it, and a yellow long-sleeved cardigan with rainbow butterfly accent shapes on it.
If you can’t find a yellow cardigan with butterfly accents on it, you can purchase some small rainbow decorative butterfly craft shapes to glue to a plain yellow sweater to modify it.
Kimmy wears purple brightly-colored sneakers with white accents. You can search for similar sneakers on retail websites and at shoe stores.
Purchase a pair of basic plain socks to wear with them, as well.
To complete your Kimmy Schmidt costume, you’ll need her purple backpack.
Her backpack has a bizarre cartoon face on it, and she wears it most notably on the Netflix advertisement posters used to promote the TV series.
You can purchase purple backpacks and cloth bags online from retail websites and athletics shops. If you can’t locate a backpack with a cartoon face printed on it, you can use fabric paint to customize a plain backpack.
