If you’re looking to dust off a 90’s character to cosplay at your next convention, we highly recommend Dr. Lipschitz from Nickelodeon’s cartoon Rugrats. With hair that closely resembles Krusty the Clown or Bozo the Clown, Dr. Lipschitz’s costume can be a lot of fun. Follow this costume guide to find out how to all the items for this look.
Start with a pair of Round Yellow Glasses. Then, emulate his signature hairstyle with an Old Man Wig, Grey Mustache, and Grey Goatee. Wear a Burgundy Sports Coat over a Van Heusen White Dress Shirt with a Solid Teal Green Tie and Gold Tie Clip. Cap off Dr. Lipschitz’s look with Blue Dress Pants with a Columbia Brown Belt and a pair of Brown Wingtip Oxford Shoes.
Dr. Lipschitz’s from the Nickelodeon show Rugrats look from the waist up is critical. What you wear for pants or shoes isn’t really that big of a deal, though, we would suggest slacks and dress shoes. His hair is probably what stands out the most. Think Krusty the Clown. His puffy hair and dated facial hair can be replicated with items from a costume shop online.
The rest of Dr. Lipschitz’s outfit can be found either in your closet or thrift store. It consists of a white collared shirt, blue tie, and burgundy sports coat. Accessorize with yellow, circle rimmed glasses which can be easily found online! For group cosplay, you can include the Rugrats themselves, Tommy, Chuckie Finster, Angelica, and the twins Phil and Lil. We welcome your cosplay photo submissions of Dr. Lipschitz’s look!
Beloved child psychologist, Dr. Werner P. Lipschitz, is an advertising powerhouse. Readily available for parents troubled by their children’s behavior, he can be reached via phone, online, or at the hospital. He also has a book and video series. While his advice seems misinformed and sometimes downright ridiculous, Chaz and Didi from the Nickelodeon show Rugrats often seek his advice.
To everyone else, Dr. Lipschitz is a free loader who only cares about making money. He often takes advantage of his fan’s hospitality by using their homes like a hotel. He also borrows things from around the house to make himself even more comfortable. Inept as he is, there does come a point when he finds his practices basically useless and does work to improve them, but he never loses his drive to make money.
