Penny Proud Cosplay Costumes
Penny usually wears multiple shades of pink. Her skirt and shoes are a deeper pink or magenta, and her cardigan is a lighter shade. She wears a white collared shirt so that it doesn’t feel like an overwhelming amount of pink. The shirt balances with her white socks as well. Her outfit is girly but also practical. The separate pieces of her outfit should be reasonably simple to find in most second-hand stores or even in your closet.
Why not have Penny be with the entire Proud family! Oscar Proud, Trudy Proud, Suga Mama, or any of the other family members. Or, if Penny wants a break from her family, she could always hang out with her friends; Dijonay Jones, Zoey Howzer, LaCienega Boulevardez, or Sticky Webb.
