Joy Cosplay Costumes

In 2015, Disney released the movie “Inside Out,” a heartwarming coming-of-age story centered around a little girl named Riley. What made “Inside Out” unique was its portrayal of Riley’s thoughts – each of Riley’s emotions was personified by a character that “lived” in Riley’s head. Each emotion could easily be cosplayed, including the character Joy. Out of all the “Inside Out” characters, Joy’s costume is by far the easiest to duplicate. Simply find a bright yellow dress and blue wig! Make your costume a group effort by getting your friends to join in as the other emotions in Riley’s head: Anger, Fear, Sadness, and Disgust.

About Joy

Joy is the most dominant emotion in Riley’s head. She was the first emotion to appear after Riley was born, and she feels a special duty to keep her happy ever since. Her bubbly personality is infectious and even rubs off on Sadness now and then. Joy is also extremely optimistic and can see the good in every situation. Joy is also the emotion that changes the most throughout the movie. She begins the movie believing that for Riley to be happy, she has to be joyful all the time. However, as Riley grows, Joy also has to grow and realize that the other emotions in Riley’s head are just as important as her.
