Charlie Brown Costume (& Other Peanuts Characters)

Updated on October 29, 2012

Charlie Brown Costume (and other Peanuts Characters)

Dress up as Charlie Brown, Linus, Snoopy, Woodstock, or Lucy from Peanuts, the comic strip / animated masterpiece from Charles Schulz. Standing the test of time, Peanuts has continued to tug at the heartstrings of many, offering a glimpse of life and its many ironies, ups, and downs.

Below are costumes for adults and kids alike (you have to check out the cute Charlie Brown onesie!) People will surely recognize your outfits, and reminisce with you.

Charlie Brown Costume - The Charlie Brown Shirt for Adults, Kids, and Babies

Dressing up as Charlie Brown is super simple! Charlie Brown wears one very distinct shirt in the Peanuts comic strips and shows. It is a yellow shirt with black zig zags. He then pairs it with a simple pair of black shorts. Yup, it's just a t-shirt / shorts combination; pretty comfy and easy costume choice right? For added details, wear brown shoes and yellow socks. Below is a cute Charlie Brown romper for babies, and a Charlie Brown shirt for kids and adults.

Additional prop: You can bring a Snoopy plush, Charlie's loyal (and popular) companion.

Linus van Pelt Costume - The Security Blanket Toting Philosopher

Linus is my personal favorite character and I love the juxtaposition between his adult philosophical mind and his childlike habit of sucking his thumb and carrying a security blanket. His trademark shirt is a red shirt with black lines. He wears black shorts too and orange socks.

Although Linus' shirt doesn't have a collar, I think the stripes of this polo shirt mimics Linus' very well.

Snoopy Costume (Normal or Flying Ace Mode) - Be Simple Snoopy or Gear up against the Red Baron!

Snoopy is a lovable dog and is very popular. In fact, he even gets more attention than Charlie Brown and in one comic strip, Snoopy gets a large stack of Valentines cards while Charlie gets none! There is a Snoopy body suit being sold that is for babies, kids, and adults.

Here's a great idea! Instead of dressing up as the Simple Snoopy, how about dressing up as World War I flying ace / aviator Snoopy, and pretend you're battling with the Red Baron!

Not fond of body suits? Wear this Snoopy mask, then wear a white shirt, a pair of white pants, and white shoes!

Don't forget, the flying ace needs a red scarf to fly high against the Red Baron!

I'm pretty sure you came to this costume guide because you read Peanuts growing up (or continue to read it even). Which character has always been close to your heart? Mine has always been Linus, I can kinda relate to him (but I don't have a security blanket, mind you!)

      I've always wanted to dress up as Charlie Brown on Halloween and it's hard to pin point exactly why.
