Pippi Longstocking Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Pippi Longstocking’s style is wild, colorful, and brighter than anything you’ve ever seen. As she was raised by her father only and let loose to run wild, both her personality and outfits are usually on quite the wild side.

She is not afraid to mismatch socks or different patterns, as well as wear clashing bright colors. It is all part of her character and personality. A typical outfit for Pippi would be a pinafore dress, long stockings, boots, and t-shirt, and often times a pirate hat in memory of her father.

Of course, her two pig-tails sticking out of the sides of her head really make her outfits special as well.
