How to Make a Cosmo and Wanda Costume for Females
If you want to learn how to make a Cosmo and Wanda costume yourself, it’s really not that hard. The costumes work great for females posing as fairies as well as couples.
You can find all of the props, material and items needed for your costume on Amazon. And luckily, it’s quite easy to turn yourself into a fairy.
Here’s what you’ll need as a female:
- Green or pink colored wig
- A play crown
- A magic wand
- A bright yellow or white top or cut off t-shirt
- Fairy wings
- Black trousers, hot pants or a mini skirt
If you’re planning to dress up as two females, you’ll need a green wig and a white shirt for Cosmo and a pink or red wig and a bright yellow shirt or top for Wanda.
Putting Together Your DIY Costume Using Amazon
Labeauté Green Wig ($26.99)
The first thing you’ll need for Cosmo is a green wig. For women, we recommend getting the Labeauté Green Wig on Amazon. It’s Amazon’s official pick which means you can rest assured that it’s an affordable and quality wig.
This wig has a majority of 5-star reviews from hundreds of happy customers. You can’t go wrong with this wig.
Labeauté Pink Wig for Cosmo and Wanda Costume ($26.99)
The best part is that Labeauté also has a bright pink wig. This will be perfect for Wanda. The bright pink will make your costume stand out immediately, especially if your counterpart shows up with a bright green wig.
LED Yellow Princess Cosmo and Wanda Crown ($13.99)
Cosmo and Wanda both wear a cute little yellow crown with three spikes. This yellow crown on Amazon is also part of the “Amazon’s Choice” program which means it’s proven and affordable.
The crown lights up yellow in the dark which adds to the flashy outfit.
Combined with the bright pink and green wigs, the cute little yellow LED crown can be worn comfortably. You have three different LED light modes you can choose from.
Alternatively, you can create your own DIY yellow Cosmo and Wanda crown, using bright yellow paper and some rubber bands.
GIYOMI Star Wand ($3.99)
Next up you’ll need a magic fairy wand. We recommend the GIYOMI Star Wand. It’s cheap and recommended by Amazon. The silver, shiny and glittery wand will instantly add credibility to your DIY Cosmo and Wanda costume.
But keep in mind that the original magic wand has a yellow star top. Luckily,
Silly Sticks Magic Wand for Cosmo and Wanda Costume ($8.49)
If you prefer a magic wand with a yellow star you can go with the Silly Sticks brand on Amazon. In the original Cosmo and Wanda series, the fairy couple holds magic wands with a yellow star.
This magic wand is also a bit less glittery, making it a better fit if you’re looking for a Cosmo and Wanda couples costume.
REORIA Yellow Woman’s Crop Top ($17.99)
Wanda usually wears a bright yellow top. This crop top by REORIA works perfectly for this purpose. Get it in bright yellow and it’ll look perfect.
Alternatively, you can take any bright yellow top or shirt. You might want to cut it off slightly to reveal your belly.
As for Cosmo, any white top or shirt will do. You probably already have a white shirt you can use, but if you need one to cut off and mess with, you’ll find lots of cheap ones on Amazon or any local store.
Caretoto White Fairy Wings ($16.99)
Don’t forget your fairy wings. Without them, you won’t have an authentic Cosmo and Wanda costume. There are a couple of fairy wings for sale on Amazon. But we recommend going with the Caretoto fairy wings.
They’re also Amazon’s choice and have hundreds of 5-star reviews.
Verdusa High-Waisted Black Short Skirt ($19.99)
For females, wearing a short black skirt will accentuate your Cosmo and Wanda costume and add some sexyness to it. Combined with a yellow or white top, the bright green or pink wig, yellow crown and fairy wings your costume will look authentically like Wanda and Cosmo.
We recommend the high-waisted short black skirt from Verdusa.
If you don’t like to wear a black skirt you can also wear black hotpants, jeans or black trousers. Both Wanda and Cosmo wear black.
Cosmo and Wanda Couples Costume
Now that you know how to make your own Cosmo and Wanda costume DIY as a woman, or for two females, let’s talk about a male and female combination.
If you’re looking to create your own Cosmo and Wanda couples costume, there’s a few things you want to pay attention to.
First of all, the female person should be Wanda and the male should dress up as Cosmo. As the female counterpart, you can use the instructions and recommendations above. Just make sure you get the bright pink wig and bright yellow top or t-shirt.
Apart from that, you can get the fairy wings and wand from the list above as well.
For the male counterpart, get a bright green wig for males. For example one of these on Amazon.
Special Bright Green Wig ($19.99)
This green wig is better suited for men and has a fun shape that makes you stand out. It’s not exactly how Cosmo’s hair is in the popular series, but combined with everything else and Wanda you’ll immediately be recognized as Cosmo.
Karlery Green Wig for Men ($23.99)
Alternatively, you can get the Karlery wig for men. It comes in bright green and the shape of the hair looks a bit more like Cosmo’s hair.
There are plenty of other green wigs for men on Amazon, but they’re all quite similar.
If you are planning to dress up as a couple and don’t like the idea of wearing wigs, you could also dye your hair pink and green using a temporary hair dye. The wigs will look more extreme and bright though.
KissTies Black Satin Tie ($19.99)
Cosmo usually wears a black tie on a white shirt. If you already have a black tie that you don’t mind wearing, you can use that one. Alternatively, the KissTies black satin tie on Amazon is both a best-seller and looks great.
You might even be able to use it for other occasions after the party.
Amazon Essentials White Shirt for Men ($17.42)
As for Cosmo’s shirt, you’ll want to get a plain and vanilla white shirt. Any white dress shirt will do but you obviously don’t want to look too premium. Your Cosmo costume should look a bit comical, so make sure you don’t come across too formal with a black tie.
We recommend using something simple like the white Amazon Essential’s shirt for men.
Combining your black tie with a regular white T-shirt or a regular shirt should work, as long as your outfit doesn’t seem too formal.

The fairy couple met when Cosmo was a waiter but Cosmo’s controlling mother doesn’t approve of Wanda. Although the two have a loving and lasting relationship and love Timmy, Chloe and Poof a lot, they also get into arguments.
Timmy is an average but poorly understood 10-year old boy. Neglected by his parents, called mom and dad, and a vicious babysitter called Vicky, he gets two fairy godparents called Cosmo and Wanda.
Cosmo is loving but often grants dumb wishes, which frequently gets Timmy into trouble. Wanda plays the part of the more responsible godmother and grants dumb wishes less frequently. Nevertheless, either her or Cosmo usually grant Timmy’s “dumb” wishes.
