Best Willy Wonka Costume Guide
Willy Wonka is an eccentric character with his own personality and quirks—but he is also a talented man who creates the best chocolates in the world. Not only is his personally out of this world, but his factory and clothing style is like none other. His chocolate factory has lickable trees and wallpaper, a chocolate river, chutes filled with chocolate, geese that lay golden eggs, and many other things that you would have to see to believe.
His style reflects his quirky personality. Willy Wonka wears a purple jacket, a long sleeve dress shirt, a paisley-like purple vest, chino pants, a big bow tie, a top hat, boots, and he walks around with a cane (although we’ve seen him do a few flips from time to time). Willy Wonka doesn’t believe in living a boring life, so we shouldn’t be surprised when his attire is the opposite of boring.

About Willy Wonka
Willy Wonka is the chocolate master and creative genius from Roald Dahl’s children’s book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” The book was based around Charlie’s adventures as a child, but Willy Wonka quickly became the hit of the book because his quirky personality captured his readers. The book was recreated in the film world in 1971 where Gene Wilder played the role of Willy Wonka.
Willy Wonka and his crew of candy makers also known as Oompa Loompas made candies such as the everlasting gobstopper, snozzberries, three-course-meal gum, fudge mallows, and lickable wallpaper. Willy Wonka invited only a few winners of the Golden Ticket contest into his chocolate factory, and they were the only people in the world who got to see the inside of the factory and try the candy not in stores. Willy Wonka also taught doe children lessons about their good and bad behaviors.
