Bing Bong Costume (Disney’s Inside Out)
Bing Bong is a charactor from Disney’s Inside Out. He is Riley’s imaginary friend. He’s part cat, part elephant and part dolphin.
Bing Bong wears a mini dark brown hat with purple trim. Here are a few options from Amazon.
DIY TIP: Complete the look and use purple ribbon to line the base of the hat and/or add a green leaf.
Bing Bong wears a brown checkered jacket. Since the jacket is checkered with different shades of brown, using a solid brown jacket can work. If you’re on a budget, then any brown jacket will do. If you don’t have one already, you can probably find one at a thrift store. If you’re going for a more authentic look, then find a jacket style with lapels. Jackets can get expensive. I suggest finding a jacket that you’ll want to wear even when you’re not dressing up as Bing Bong.
These Zazzle jackets have been made specifically for a Bing Bong costume. Unfortunately, Zazzle doesn’t allow you to put the design on the other side so the flower is on the wrong side. If you want the jacket without the flower design so that you can wear it on regular occasions, just select the “customize it” button to delete the design.
Bing Bong has a six-petaled rainbow colored flower attached to his jacket lapel. If you’re not buying any of the jackets listed above that has the flower design already on it, then you can easily make it yourself. You can use thick colored paper or stiff felt. For durability, you want to make sure it’s not too flimsy.
OR.. buy this 3-inch by 3-inch sticker (comes in a set of 6) and stick it onto your jacket. You can cut out the white border for a more authentic look. TIP: Stickers sometimes fall off easily. Secure it with a safety pin or stick it to something sturdy like a cardboard box and cut it out.
Bing Bong is very furry and pink. In fact, he’s made out of cotton candy! A pink dress or a pink shirt could work well. Or, at the bottom of the listed items for this section, you can find pink elephant costumes you can buy.
Purple Bow-tie with Pink Polka Dots
A purple bow-tie with pink polka dots is attached to Bing Bong’s pink fur. Below you will find pink shirts you can purchase from Zazzle that have a design of a purple bow-tie and pink polka dots. Or you can buy a separate bow-tie. However, real purple bow-ties with pink polka dots are hard to find so you may have to settle for a either a purple bow-tie or a pink bow-tie. If you can find the right fabric, you can even make the bow-tie yourself.
Pink and Peach Striped Legs
Bing Bong’s legs are peach with pink stripes. You can accomplish this look with tights, long socks, leggings or pants. Finding the exact color combination will probably be difficult so choosing alternate but similar colors might be easier. In some depictions of Bing Bong (in drawings, figurines, toys, etc), his legs are colored orange and pink.
Brown Fingerless Gloves
Bing Bong wears brown gloves without fingers. Two options: 1) You can buy cheap brown gloves and cut off the fingers yourself or 2) you can buy gloves that were made to be fingerless.
Purple Striped Tail
Remember, Bing Bong is part cat so he’s sporting a purple striped furry tail.
Here’s another one on Etsy. But at the time of writing this, there’s only one more left so act quick!

Bing Bong’s Magic Wagon
If you’re a parent dressing up as Bing Bong and you have small children that you will be talking around trick-or-treating, then Bing Bong’s Magic Wagon is a perfect mode of transportation for your little ones.
If you want to go even further, you can decorate the wagon the way it is in the movie by using cardboard boxes and two corn brooms.
Bing Bong cries candy tears! Perfect for Halloween. You could pretend to cry when you pass out candy.
