American Dad is an animated sit com by Seth McFarlane, who is also the creator of Family Guy. The series focuses on the Smith family which consists of: CIA Agent Stan, housewife Francine, their daughter Hayley, son Steve, the family’s talking goldfish named Klaus and Roger the cross dressing alien.
Today’s post is going to focus on the character of Hayley, Steven and Francine’s hippie teenage daughter. Hayley is the complete polar opposite of her father Stan in that she is a liberal where as he is a Republican.
I follow quite a few cosplay accounts on Instagram and the minute I saw a Hayley American Dad costume showcased I knew I needed to write up a tutorial for you guys. So without further ado let’s get into the juicy details.
Hayley Smith Wig
As Hayley has long flowing black hair, the first thing you’ll need if your hair is not already a suitable length and color is a wig. Check out the one above that you wear with the bandanna we’ll show you how to make below. Otherwise move onto the next section.
Hayley Smith Bandanna
Then you’ll need to make Hayley’s green bandanna unless you can find one with pink stars already on. Start with a plain green bandanna as a base and attach some stars cut out of pink felt.
Hayley Smith Costume
The main item you’ll need is a grey crop top or shirt (which ever you are more comfortable wearing), you could find this at the link above or check out your local thrift store. Don’t forget to add a black peace sign necklace as a small but important detail.
The last thing you’ll need to make is Hayley’s belt. You could get a plain white belt with a golden buckle as your base and then attach yellow circles along it, or use white felt as the belt and the yellow felt as the buckle and circles.
There is everything you’ll need to transform into your favourite American Dad character for Halloween and cosplay conventions. Now before you go check out the rest of our blog posts for more ideas or follow us on social media for updates whenever we release new guides.
