Rita from Jelly Jamm

In Jelly Jamm, Rita (voiced by many performers depending on location but by Tara Strong on Disney Junior) is one of the adventurous children that lives on Jammbo. She is always eager to try new things which sometimes gets her into trouble. Her friends are usually along for the ride which means more adventures for everyone!

Dressing up as Rita is a very pink experience. You will need a pink wig, tights, gloves, and face paint to mimic her pink skin and hair. You might also have to paint your upper arms if you cannot find long enough gloves. If you go for a full face-paint kit you can use the white and black to paint your eyelids so they resemble Rita’s eyes. Her clothing is simple, consisting of dark pink Mary Janes and a matching dress with a white daisy on the chest.

Emily from Little Bear

In the summertime, Emily (voiced by Jennifer Martini) visits her grandmother’s home near the forest where Little Bear and his anthropomorphic animal friends live. There, they have a slew of adventures together, whether they’re going to the moon or contemplating the existence of mermaids. (“That’s the thing about mermaids … you never can tell!”) In the show, Emily is apparently seven years old, and dresses like a young girl from the early twentieth century. Recreating her outfit in contemporary adult women’s clothes can be, as Little Bear would say, “Iiiinteresting.”
