What you need
Getting started with your Wreck it Ralph costume for kids is easy. Here are the different parts of the costume you will need to get your kids looking like Wreck it Ralph.
- A green T-shirt
- An orange plaid button shirt
- Brown overalls
- Oversized wrecking hands

The place to start your Wreck it Ralph costume for kids is with the green t-shirt. Your kids might already have a plain green t-shirt, but if they don’t, this one is basic so it can be worn for regular clothing as well or handed down to a sibling.
Orange Plaid Shirt
This type and color of shirt seems to be a popular item for boys in this age group, so your child will probably want to wear it even when he’s not dressing up. This shirt is nice on its own, but your kid will look just like Wreck it Ralph when you add it to their costume.
Or if you need something cheaper this Orange Shirt will do in a pinch.
Probably one of the more noticeable parts of Wreck-it Ralph’s look, the brown overalls are definitely an essential part of your Wreck-it Ralph costume for kids. They are plain, so your child could also wear them with something else they already have in their closet.
Wreck-it Ralph Hands
These are definitely the most important part of your Wreck it Ralph costume for kids. These oversized hands are soft; limiting the amount of “wrecking” your child can actually do to your house. And they have voice and sound effects when you hit things with them too.

Some more Wreck it Ralph Costume for kids tips
You may have noticed one thing about your Wreck it Ralph costume for kids. There aren’t any shoes. Well, just like the rest of him, Wreck it Ralph’s feet are huge. So it makes sense that he doesn’t wear shoes in the movie. If you wanted to find some oversized feet to add to the costume to make it more authentic, you probably can. But let’s face it…they’re little kids. They’re probably going to run around barefoot anyway, so those are the one part of the costume that isn’t really essential. And you won’t have to worry about them tripping over their oversized feet. A regular pair of shoes would also fit in just fine with this costume.
