In case you already have everything to dress up as Bob you can get the Happy-Little-Painting-Costume seperately as well.

Here is all you need for your perfect Bob Ross costume:

  • A brown afro wig to recreate Bob’s signature hair style. (Did you know that Bob Ross actually hated his ‘fro?)
  • A brown makeup pencil for the beard, or a fake beard
  • A blue dress shirt and a pair of dad jeans. While Bob sometimes was seen in different colors like red his blue shirt is the most recognizable.
  • A paintbrush. You do not need a real brush for oil painting, a cheap one from the hardware store is perfectly fine.
