Sid Costume Tips & FAQs

Dive into the world of Pixar’s beloved classic, “Toy Story,” with our detailed costume guide FAQ focused on the unforgettable character, Sid. Known as the notorious toy-tormenting boy next door, Sid’s unique style provides a fun and slightly rebellious costume choice. This guide will help you capture the essence of Sid’s look, ensuring your transformation is both accurate and memorable.

Sid's iconic outfit consists of a black skull t-shirt, blue jeans, and a pair of black sneakers. His casual, somewhat disheveled appearance reflects his rebellious nature. Don't forget to accessorize with a temporary skull tattoo on your arm to mimic Sid's own.

To recreate Sid's skull t-shirt, you can either look for a similar shirt online or make your own by applying a skull design to a plain black t-shirt using fabric paint or an iron-on transfer.

Sid is often seen with an evil grin and a mischievous glint in his eye, so practicing his expressions can add authenticity to your costume. Additionally, carrying around a toy or two in a state of "repair" (like a doll head on a metal spider body) can further enhance your portrayal.

Sid has a messy, unkempt hairstyle, so if your hair isn't naturally similar, consider using gel to create a tousled look. A black wristwatch and a pair of round, metal-framed sunglasses can also add to the authenticity of your Sid costume.

Embracing Sid's character through his quotes can really bring your costume to life. Some memorable Sid quotes include: "Yes! He's gone! He's history!," "I don't believe that man's ever been to medical school.," "Hannah! Hey, Hannah! Look, I got an alien!," "We're gonna have a fun day today. We're gonna have a fun day!" and "I want to ride the pony." Using these quotes can help you channel Sid's chaotic energy and add a fun, interactive element to your costume.

About Sid

The character of Sid Phillips was said to be inspired by a former Pixar employee. This employee’s hobby was to take toys apart and use the parts for building strange figures. Sid’s backpack has “Julie Mcbarfle has cooties” written on it. The name was referring to the editorial and camera manager Julie McDonald, who kept asking art director Ralph Eggleston to put her name somewhere in the movie.

During production, Sid was given the nickname “Little Jack Nicholson,” in reference to the actor. Interestingly, the rug pattern in Sid’s house is the same as the pattern in the Overlook Hotel from the movie The Shining, which stars Jack Nicholson. Sid also made an appearance in the film short Woody’s Nightmares. Sid appeared in Woody’s nightmare, swapping the heads of Buzz and Wood and evilly laughing while doing it. Sid’s behavior is a throwback to him swapping the heads of the Janie Doll and the pterodactyl.
