How To Make A Homemade Wenda Costume


The Wenda Costume Breakdown


Who Is Wenda? And Where In The World Is Waldo?

Wenda is a character in the "Where's Waldo" books written by British author, Martin Handford. Waldo, or Wally as he is called in Britain, is a world explorer and Wenda is his girlfriend. Wenda likes to take pictures of all the exotic and fun places she goes...and she loses her camera a lot! These books have sold over 58,000,000 copies all around the world so no matter where you go on Halloween, if you are dressed as Wenda lots of people are going to know exactly who you are.

The cute Wenda costume (and the very similar Waldo disguise) is super easy to make at home. The articles of clothing you will need are probably in your dresser or your closet right this moment. If they aren't be sure to check those old storage boxes filled with clothes in the attic. Keep your eyes open for anything red and white! If you still haven't found just the right clothes you need to dress up as Wenda after searching all around the house, go to a consignment shop, a thrift store, or a Goodwill store.

These cheap clothing outlets are a treasure chest of costume making clothes and accessories. A great example of this is the Wenda outfit...she loves to take pictures. I am sure you will find an older, beat up camera in a thrift or consignment shop for a few will be perfect for this costume and you won't have to take your good camera out as a costume accessory.

To Make A Wenda Costume You Will Need:

Red & White Striped Top
Blue Skirt
Red & White Knee Socks/Tights
Red & White Umbrella
Black Rimmed Glasses
Red & White Beanie Hat

Make An Odlaw Costume

If you get dressed up as Wenda and you know someone who wants to dress up as Waldo, why not get one more friend and have them dress up as Odlaw. (Did you notice that Odlaw backwards spells Waldo?)

Odlaw is an enemy of Waldo's. He tries to mess with Waldo's plans, but usually fails to make a difference at all. He dresses like Waldo but uses the colors yellow and black instead of red and white. If you are looking for a fun group costume theme, Where in the World is Waldo, is a great source of ideas. Wenda and Odlaw are just two examples of the fun and easy to make costume ideas we get from this book series.
