Best Sid Costume Guide

Often identified as the paranoid and superstitious one, Sid is a character from the popular Nickelodeon animated television show, Hey Arnold! One moment that highlights Sid’s paranoia was when he discovered germs in his school classroom and became obsessed with not coming in contact with them. Sid became so obsessed that he even wore a big anti-germ suit just to keep himself away from all the germs. Sid isn’t known to hang out with Arnold’s gang often. Sidney’s closest friends are Harold Berman and Stinky. Get the look of the paranoid troublemaker in this Sid costume guide.

Ever wanted to look like a young troublemaker from an animated series? Well, now is your chance! To cosplay Sid’s look, you’ll need a Baseball Cap, Long Nose, Turtleneck T-Shirt, Leather Jacket, Skinny Jeans, and a pair of Combat Boots.

Sid Cosplay Costumes

Sid’s style portrays him as a character with a very cool and collected persona. Just by looking at him, you wouldn’t expect he’s an overly paranoid and superstitious kid. You may remember that he once thought his best pal, Stinky, was a vampire or that he was convinced that he killed the school principal because of voodoo doll he carved of him out of soap. Another similar incident happened when he decided to devote his entire life to Arnold, worshipping him, to say the least, because Arnold happened to save his life.

The majority of Sid’s look is pretty basic and probably achievable by a handful of clothes in your closet—a turtleneck t-shirt, a leather jacket, skinny jeans, and a pair of combat boots. What will really make you look like Sid though is his iconic green backward cap and long nose. Even more so, if you turn up with the rest of the Hey Arnold! gang like Harold Berman, Helga Pataki, and Gerald.

About Sid

Sidney, better known as “Sid,” always ends up in what the rest of the Hey Arnold! gang would classify as ridiculous situations. It also doesn’t help that his closest friends, Harold and Stinky, are some of the biggest troublemakers of their grade in P.S. 118. Whenever there are Urban Legend episodes on the show, he is most often the one telling the urban legends. This makes a lot of sense as Sid is incredibly superstitious. Out of anyone in the group, you can bet that it’s probably Sid who believes all of these crazy stories.

Even though he’s just considered a supporting character on the show, anyone who grew up in the 1990s watching Nickelodeon will know Sid. Hey Arnold! is considered to be one of those iconic shows during what many consider as “the Golden Age of Nick.” Other known shows that played during this era are Rugrats, Double Dare, and Legends of the Hidden Temple.
