We're going to help you choose the best Where's Wally or Wenda fancy dress costume, with our choice of top picks.

We all remember the original Where's Wally books don't we? Maybe you don't, but they were first launched in 1987, and in North America they are known as Where's Waldo? They were created by the children's author and illustrator Martin Handford.

Whether you're male or female, if you're stuck for an original or quirky 80s fancy dress, stag do or hen night costume idea, then we're going to show you the best options and accessories for dressing-up as the legendary Wally or his girlfriend Wenda. This is also a great idea for couples dress-up.

Cheapest Where's Wally or Wenda Costumes

For those of you on a tight budget (let's face it, many of us are these days!), this unisex red and white striped T-shirt with bobble hat and round glasses is the perfect choice. The kit is provided by Angie's Fashion, Manchester, through their Amazon storefront, and comes in four sizes, S, M, XL or XXL, but no large, unfortunately. The price is very reasonable indeed for what you receive, and it's a great choice if you're watching the pennies.

Wenda Instant Kit Costume Set. Red and white striped tee, glasses, bobble hat and striped socks


Where's Wenda? Instant Costume Kit (4 pcs)

This Wenda costume by Gizelle (based in Manchester), is terrific value and includes everything but the skirt. Included is the red and white striped T-shirt, matching striped socks, bobble hat and round, black geek glasses. Sizes available are S, M, L, XL and XXL. However, customer feedback suggests that the T-shirt runs small, so we suggest you order a size up.

Where's Wally? Wenda Costume for Women. Bobble hat, striped top, blue skirt, striped tights and round glasses


Best Complete Wenda Costume for Women

There are actually several Wenda costumes we want to show you. This first option by Smiffys is a complete outfit, and includes the red and white striped top, blue skirt, matching striped tights, bobble hat and round black glasses. It comes in various adult ladies sizes from X-small 4 to X-Large 22, so there's something for everyone.

Wenda Costume for Women. Striped T-shirt and blue skirt with printed belt, bobble hat, striped tights


This Wenda fancy dress costume is also by Smiffys but is officially licensed and also includes a printed belt, giving it a better overall look. However, for some ridiculous reason the tights are not included, which is a great shame. This one is also available in a smaller choice of sizing, from 4 to 18. Nonethless, if you add these red and white striped tights, you will have a decent looking costume. 

Where's Wenda? Cutie Costume. Red & White Mini Dress, Hat, Glasses & Stockings


Where's Wenda? Mini Dress Costume

Included is an al-in-one dress with striped tank top and blue mini skirt (which are attached to form a dress), striped socks, bobble hat and geeky glasses. Sizes available are 4-6, 8-10 and 12-14 for adult women. This one would be a great option for a hen party.
