A long-suffering wife and mother, Lois Griffin from Fox’s animated series Family Guy is a fun and simple character to cosplay at your next convention. On the show, she is a husband Peter, and mother to three children: Meg, Chris, and Stewie. Lois is portrayed as a stereotypical television mother. Follow this costume guide and you’re only an annoying accent away from pulling off her unmistakeable style!
Wear a Women’s Long Sleeve Shirt over a pair of Women’s Skinny Khaki Pants. Then, pair up a low-key pair of Women’s Ballerina Flats. We accessorized Lois’ look with a Short Hair Wig, Helmut Red Lipstick, and Round Bead Stud Earrings. We also added a Stewie Plush Doll just for fun.
Simple and effective are two words we would use to describe this cosplay. Lois’ look can be accomplished using clothing you most likely already have in your closet. A green, three-quarter sleeve shirt and a pair of khakis—that’s about it. If you happen to have purple flats, all the better, but any dark colored flats would suffice. Some basic green button earrings can be purchased, or if you’re near a crafting section, some stick on gems will work too.
If you happen to have red hair, you’re done, but if not, you can order a bobbed wig in her trademark red color to finish your look. Add a stuffed character if you’re cosplaying solo. For group cosplay, our first suggestion is the adorable lunatic Stewie. Other options are Peter, Meg, or Chris. Be sure to check out our featured cosplay pictures for even more ideas. Send in your pics as well to show us the look you put together!
Lois Griffin from Fox’s animated series Family Guy has become synonymous for the typical American mom. She is overworked and greatly under appreciated. She has three children with husband Peter who daily tests her patience with his outlandish antics. She has a love-hate relationship with her children. Her youngest son Stewie works diligently to kill her but admittedly misses her when he needs something. Her daughter Meg lacks her mother’s grace and appeal.
Aside from being a mother, she is a singer, a supportive wife to Peter, and friend to Brian. In short, the Griffin household would be lost without her. She tactfully avoids feeding into Brian’s obsession with her and laughs off Peter’s attempts to single-handedly destroy the neighborhood. She comes from money, which makes her marriage to a former towel boy a point of contention with her father Carter Pewterschmidt. Despite her husband’s ongoing antics and her son’s death wishes, Lois still maintains her charm and characteristic nasal accent.
