Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a unique shows. In so, so many ways. And that is part of what makes it such a great cosplay option. That and, of course, the group nature of it! Grab two friends and figure out who will be Yellow Guy, Red Guy, and Duck Guy. Then sit down to a little be of a DIY and enjoy your cosplay!

All three characters require a fair amount of DIY. The nature of the DIY varies from character to character of course. But there are a couple of supplies you’ll need for most if not all of the characters. These include acrylic paint, a glue gun, and ping pong balls.

For Red Guy you will also need some red acrylic yarn and a red beanie to recreate his mask. Just cut and glue lots of red yarn lengths to the beanie and then glue painted ping pong balls on top for his eyes. It will be a little difficult to see through, which is something to take into account if wearing the costume to a convention. To finish Red Guy’s look put on a red jumpsuit and black boots. You’re all set!

Yellow Guy’s version of DIY is a little different. It’s hard to find overalls in that color blue. So your best bet is to buy white cotton overalls and then dye with Rit dye. Once they’re dry you’ll put them on over a yellow body suit and finish the look with white sneakers. Yellow and orange face paint will give you the look of Yellow Guy’s “puppet” head and a blue wig finishes off the look entirely.

Finally there is Duck Guy. You can probably find a mascot head that looks like his but those are expensive. Your best budget bet is to use the acrylic paints and paint either a small crow beak or a “plague doctor” mask to resemble Duck Guy. Wear that over a black hood with a black jumpsuit and black boots and you’re ready to go!

Human!Paige from DHMIS

In the web series Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, Paige is the notepad that teaches the three main character about creativity. Closer to the end, the episode take a dark twist, and the characters begin using organs instead of crayons and whatnot. In this guide, I found a humanized version of the character to make it easier to portray her. I have no idea who created the first work of art that I placed as the first picture, but the second one was created by VanessaGiratina on DeviantArt.

For this, there are no pre-made skirts for the design. You’d have to buy a white skirt and red fabric, along with fabric paints or fabric markers. For the top, a white dress shirt with puffy sleeves would suffice. Due to her pale completion in most designs, you might just want to paint your face white. For her arms, long black gloves, and for her legs, black tights and black pumps with a very small heel. Her hair is actually multiple pastel colors. I’ll be using this as a guide for myself as well, so, even though almost all amazon wigs are crappy, all items will be in the Amazon store. To give the skirt that puffy appearance, a petty coat would be a bright idea. As for the face, to make sure the paint won’t look shiny, applying white powder would be desirable.
