The popularity of the Toy Story movies has inspired some of the most popular costume ideas since the first movie was released in 1995. The usual Toy Story costumes usually consist of Woody, Jessie, and Buzz Lightyear as their iconic status has only increased with children over the years.

Choosing Unique Toy Story Costumes

It's easy to rely on the most famous Toy Story characters if you're looking for Toy Story Halloween costumes that are sure to be a success. Yet, you should think about some of the secondary players in the Toy Story films when choosing a costume this Halloween.

After all, there?s no reason that Toy Story costumes should be limited to the three main characters. Here are a few examples of other Toy Story characters that would make great Toy Story costumes:

Bo Beep

This toy is modeled after Little Bo Beep from the popular children's story. In the first movie, Bo Beep plays the object of Sheriff Woody's affections, so this Toy Story costume would work great as a couples costume. You can probably find what you need to create a cute shepherdess ensemble at a local thrift shop.


Hamm is considered by many to be the star of the original Toy Story film. He is a toy piggy Bank with a cork on his stomach and a coin slot on his back. It's possible to purchase a pre-made Hamm Toy Story costume online or at retail shops. But you could easily make one yourself with a really loose pink sweatsuit and cartoon pig mask.

Mr. Potato Head

A large plastic toy with colorful detachable body parts, Mr. Potato Head is an outspoken character with a sarcastic tone in the movie. And he makes a great Toy Story costume. The challenge here is with creating the interchangeable parts, but imagine the possibilities! You could wear a different Mr. Potato Head costume for each party you go to.

Mrs. Potato Head makes a great costume choice for females. Her costume looks quite similar to Mr. Potato Head, just more girly looking. In fact, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head costumes would work great for couples!


Sarge is the commander of a group of green plastic toy soldiers. He remains a very well-liked character, and the ease of duplicating his army uniform makes him a popular choice for Toy Story costumes.

It doesn't matter whether you pick Hamm, Sarge, Mr. Potato Head or Bo Peep, you'll surely have a great time at your costumed event. Remember, why not be yourself instead of like everyone else by standing out in your one of a kind Toy Story costume? The Toy Story character you choose doesn't matter nearly as much as the attitude you bring with it!
