The Lego Movie Costume Tips & FAQs

Dive into the colorful and imaginative world of “The LEGO Movie,” a cinematic adventure that captivates audiences with its creativity, humor, and heart. This FAQ section is your guide to embodying the spirit and style of the film’s beloved characters, from the everyday hero Emmet Brickowski to the masterful and mysterious Wyldstyle, and the wise Vitruvius. Whether you’re crafting a costume for a convention, a themed party, or just for the fun of bringing LEGO to life, we’ll help you navigate the unique challenges of transforming these iconic, blocky characters into wearable art.

To cosplay as Emmet, focus on his construction worker outfit, which includes an orange safety vest over a blue long-sleeve shirt and blue pants. Don’t forget his hard hat, ID badge, and the Piece of Resistance glued to his back. For a more LEGO-like appearance, consider constructing accessories from cardboard or foam to mimic the blocky shape of LEGO figures. Emmet’s perpetually optimistic and enthusiastic demeanor is key to capturing his character.

Wyldstyle’s costume is all about her edgy, graffiti-inspired look. Her outfit features a black hoodie with colorful, angular designs, black pants with similar designs, and a dark blue skirt. Her hair is black with streaks of blue and pink, so a wig might be necessary unless you’re willing to temporarily color your hair. Accessories like her LEGO-shaped wrist cuffs and a homemade relic tracker can add authenticity. Embodying Wyldstyle’s confident and resourceful nature will bring the costume together.

Vitruvius’s costume requires a long white robe or tunic to reflect his wizardly status, complete with a fabric belt and a blue cape. His blind eyes can be suggested with sunglasses or specially designed goggles. Don’t forget his long, white beard and hair, which may require a wig and a fake beard unless you naturally have long white hair. A wooden staff topped with a translucent blue “crystal” represents his magical accessory. Vitruvius’s wise yet quirky personality should guide your portrayal.

Lord Business’s costume is defined by his tall, red helmet and his business suit with the Octan logo. For a more LEGO-authentic look, construct the helmet and shoulder pads from cardboard or foam to achieve the right angles and proportions. A black suit, a red tie, and an oversized LEGO piece for the Kragle (super glue) can complete the outfit. Capturing Lord Business’s over-the-top villainy and corporate demeanor is essential for this costume.

Including memorable quotes from “The LEGO Movie” can add depth and fun to your costume or themed interactions. Here are a few iconic lines:

“Everything is awesome!” – Emmet and the ensemble, the film’s catchy theme

“You’re the special, and you still don’t believe it!” – Wyldstyle to Emmet

“The only thing anyone needs to be special is to believe that you can be.” – Vitruvius

“Honey, where are my paaaants?” – The sitcom actor, a running gag in the movie

“I am Lord Business, president of the Octan Corporation and the world!” – Lord Business

Choose quotes that fit your character and the situation, and be ready to deliver them with the appropriate flair and context for a truly immersive experience.
