In Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz is the feisty main character from the video game ‘Sugar Rush’. King Candy turned her into a glitch so that he could take over as the leader. Defeated, she sought refuge on Diet Cola Mountain.

Bitter and angry but still wanting more than anything to be a racer, Vanellope is much more sour than sweet these days but still has a good side beneath her bitter veneer. If you love Disney or animated films and video game culture in general, this is an excellent costume choice that’s sure to steal the show at your next cosplay event!

Vanellope has jet-black hair held up in a high ponytail with a red licorice substituting as an elastic band. You will probably want to avoid using real licorice in your hair since it could put you in a real sticky situation, but don’t worry, you can use a ribbed red hair scrunchie instead or even a red pipe cleaner if you prefer.

Vanellope also has candy accents scattered into her hair in a rainbow of colors resembling sugar-covered chocolate. You can use bobby pins with rainbow plastic accents instead and give your costume something extra to stand out.

Vanellope Makeup Tutorial:


Vanellope wears a light mint green hoodie with pink strings, a ruffled dark brown party skirt that looks like a peanut butter cup wrapper flipped upside-down, and striped leggings resembling peppermint sticks. Search websites like Amazon and Etsy for a good mint green hoodie, but make sure its baggy just like Vanellope’s.

For the skirt, search for a brown 1980’s style dance skirt and remember to pick one with lots of ruffles or pleats. Many online costume shops, party shops and retail stores carry similar ones to this.

Don’t forget the leggings! You’ll need mint green ones with pink-and-white-and-green stripes on the right leg and diagonal white and mint green stripes on the other leg. If you don’t have any like this, you can make your own with a regular pair of blank turquoise leggings and fabric paint, or you can check out Halloween stores to see if they sell any replica leggings from the film.

Shoes and Accessories:

To complete your Vanellope costume, you’ll need a pair of polished black shoes.

As a finishing touch, buy some light pink makeup blush for your cheeks and some black mascara to get the same eyelashes and rosy complexion as Vanellope herself. Get your friends to dress up as the other characters from Wreck-It Ralph and prepare for a great party or convention of fun and games!
