Best Stingy Halloween Costume Guide
Stingy is one of the main characters from LazyTown, an Icelandic television series for children that is based on the 1995 children’s book by Magnús Scheving. He is the son of the wealthiest man in LazyTown and as such has grown up to be bossy and egocentric. His main hobby is to collect stuff, and his dream is to be the king of the world. Despite his bad character, he actually loves to play and interact with the kids his age in LazyTown. However, he becomes quite furious and jealous when somebody brings something new to play with that he doesn’t have.
Get the look of the possessive LazyTowner with this Stingy costume guide. Stingy’s signature look is highlighted by his button-down shirt, yellow vest and shorts, and polka dot bow tie. Make sure you also complement Stingy’s outfit with a black belt, white socks, and a pair of black dress shoes.
Stingy Cosplay Costumes
Stingy is very greedy and believes “possessions make the man.” One can assume that he grew up observing this being the son of the wealthiest man in LazyTown. Show writers note that his avid collecting is his way of feeling that he has things that others might want or need. These things may be for playtime or for the little adventures the gang is up to. Stingy’s outfit is an excellent pick for a costume because its design is loud and very particular.
Going to an event dressed like Stingy is also a great throwback to friends who grew up watching LazyTown as kids. Get the look of the selfish LazyTowner by following the suggested guide. If you want your Stingy costume to be easily recognized, it’s best to be accompanied by other LazyTowners. Have your best buds get into costumes like Pixel, Ziggy, and Stephanie.
What’s Stingy’s is only his, but whatever is yours must be shared. It’s easy to assume that Stingy is a single character who’s selfish and egocentric. However, what makes him a more likable character is his self-awareness. He knows that it’s a fault of his to be selfish. Even though he tries, he really can’t bring himself to change his ways.
His contrasting personality extends to feelings towards his friends. He admires Trixie’s free spirit but is also wildly jealous of her leadership ability. He covets Pixel’s gadgets and computers, cannot comprehend Ziggy’s generosity, and is continuously annoyed by Stephanie’s lack of interest in material things. Despite his feelings, Stingy still likes his friends deep down.
Another fun fact about Stingy is that he has one key that he carries everywhere. It’s his key to everything. It opens his piggy bank, starts his kiddie car, and unlocks the various security devices he uses to protect his possessions.
