Joey Wheeler, or Katsuya Jonouchi who is known in the Japanese and manga versions, is one of the main characters in the anime series Yu-Gi-Oh! While his costume seems more fitting for the 1980’s, Joey Wheeler’s larger-than-life hair is his most memorable attribute. If you’re looking to stand out at your next cosplay event, follow this costume guide, and you’ll leave quite an impression on everyone around you.
Start with his signature hair by choosing an Anime Cosplay Synthetic Full Wig. Dress up in a Men’s Classic Cotton T-Shirt under a Men’s Classic Denim Jacket. Then pair them with Men’s Loose Straight-Leg Jeans and Men’s Hiking Shoes. Accessorize to complete the look with an authentic Duel Disk Cosplay and an Army Style Name Dog Tag. Also included in the guide is a Joey Structure Deck to help sell your look.
If you’re into cosplaying big haired anime personas, the Yu-Gi-Oh! character Joey Wheeler has a head of hair well worth imitating. If you’re fortunate enough to have a head of bleached blonde hair like Joey, you’re already ahead of the game. If not, an impressive cosplay wig can be purchased online or at a local costume shop. While you’re there, pick up a replica of his duel deck.
The clothing portion of his outfit is super easy to pull off. A pair of dark slacks and a cotton t-shirt under a fitted denim jacket, and you’re only a simple accessory away from Joey’s signature style. Finish his look with a dog tag, and you’ll have Yu-Gi-Oh! Fans flocking to your side. For group endeavors, you can include Bakura, Tea Gardener, or Tristan Taylor. Be sure to look at our featured pics for more ideas.

Beginning as an inexperienced Duelist, through hard work and dedication, Joey Wheeler goes on to be one of the greatest Duelists in the world. At the start, Joey was a bully and deeply disliked. Upon befriending Yugi Muto, he begins to change. While he is still known for his sarcasm, impulsiveness, and gullibility there is another side to Joey. He can also be good-natured and heroic.
Joey is an enthusiastic Duelist and firmly believes that Dueling is about fighting to help the ones you care about. He is easily offended and dislikes any insult to his looks or Dueling abilities. He is deeply attached to his younger sister Serenity and will do anything to see her smile. He is also protective of her, once sacrificing his own life to save hers. His love for her is one of his few weaknesses. Despite his shortcomings, he is a loyal friend and receives good influence from his friendship with Yugi Muto.
