When Tina finally convinces her dad Bob to enter a cooking competition, it presents too good an opportunity for the pesky Gene to pass up.

When they make it to the live television show, their act is an instant hit, and the attention is good for business at Bob’s Burgers.

Despite being the youngest, Louise often comes across as the brightest of the bunch and often advises her older siblings and parents. She is also a huge fan of Japanese culture?

Bob’s Burgers Costume Tips & FAQs

Welcome to the quirky and hilarious world of “Bob’s Burgers,” where the Belcher family’s burger joint is the heart of many comedic adventures and heartwarming moments. Whether you’re drawn to Bob’s deadpan humor, Linda’s enthusiastic support, Tina’s awkward teenage angst, Gene’s musical escapades, or Louise’s clever schemes, this FAQ section will guide you through creating costumes that capture the essence of each character for cosplay events, Halloween, or any themed gathering that calls for a touch of humor and family dynamics.

To cosplay as Bob Belcher, focus on his simple chef’s attire: a white T-shirt, gray pants, and a white apron with the “Bob’s Burgers” logo. Bob’s mustache is one of his most distinctive features, so a fake mustache can be used if necessary. Adding a spatula as a prop can enhance the authenticity. Wearing comfortable black shoes and adopting Bob’s often exasperated but caring demeanor will bring depth to your portrayal of the burger-flipping patriarch.

For a Linda Belcher costume, wear a red long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and red-rimmed glasses. Linda’s hairstyle is short and black, often styled with a flip. Accessories like a wine glass or a microphone can reference her love for singing and her enthusiastic personality. Embodying Linda’s supportive nature, her spontaneous singing, and her love for family adventures will enhance your portrayal of this character.

To cosplay as Tina Belcher, opt for her signature light blue T-shirt, navy blue skirt, knee-high white socks, and black shoes. Tina’s thick-rimmed black glasses and her long black hair with a yellow hair clip are key to capturing her appearance. Carrying a notebook filled with “erotic friend fiction” can nod to Tina’s unique interests. Adopting Tina’s monotone voice, her fascination with butts, and her awkward yet earnest approach to life will make for a compelling representation.

A Gene Belcher costume requires a yellow T-shirt, blue shorts, and red sneakers. Gene is often seen with his keyboard, which is a crucial prop for capturing his musical and comedic antics. His short, blond hair and carefree attitude towards life are essential to portraying this character. Embodying Gene’s love for music, food, and his unique sense of humor, often expressed through song and sound effects, will bring authenticity to your costume.

Including memorable quotes from “Bob’s Burgers” can add character and humor to your costume or themed interactions. Here are a few iconic lines:

“Oh my God.” – Bob, in response to the family’s antics

“All right!” – Linda, in her sing-song voice

“Uhhhhhhhh.” – Tina, expressing her discomfort or excitement

“This is me now!” – Gene, embracing his latest interest or costume

“I smell fear on you.” – Louise, intimidating her siblings or adversaries

Choose quotes that fit your character and the situation, practicing their delivery with the appropriate comedic timing and tone for a truly immersive experience.


About Bob’s Burgers

Loren Bouchard created Bob’s Burgers for Fox. It follows the Belcher family as they go through everyday family life in their family-owned burger shop that they live above. Bob’s pessimism and occasional sour attitude are balanced by his love for both his restaurant and his family. His wife’s sunny demeanor is the perfect counterbalance. Their daughter Tina is a typical teenage girl that likes horses, boy bands, and gets crush after crush. She also has a Romeo and Juliet-like crush on the son of Bob’s biggest rival, Jimmy Pesto.

Their son, Gene, loves to be a pest to everyone, especially by picking bad moments to use his keyboard and megaphone. The youngest daughter, Louise, is often the cynical antihero who rounds out the family. While the core of the show centers on the dynamics between the family members, there are plenty of recurring characters from the restaurant’s regulars. The show has already been renewed for over 10th seasons and has been aired on Adult Swim and TBS.
